Mold: Saddlebred (G2)
Status: Painted late 2002-ish and Sold early 2003-ish
Spock is a simple resculpt and I’m not sure if this guy was the first portrait horse I did or if it was Billy (another black lightbreed resculpt)– such are the joys of doing almost identical horses!
Alas, just like Billy I don’t have any of my notes or the reference photos that went with this guy (losing a harddrive sucks). But I remember being pleased with how closely it matched and looking at it now I’m actually pretty darned proud of the paint job. I think he was the first time I attempted to paint striped hooves and they came out better than a lot of my later horses. (Note to self: Use reference photos you dork!)
I’m going to miss doing resculpts on this mold… I wonder if Breyer will keep recycling the older models in the gift sets or if they are going to fade away. I still miss the G1 molds and we’re already up to G4! *sighs*
Update: I stumbled over this guy during a Google search and he is currently owned by Bellehaven Farm and is part of their S/D list as JOHNNY B GOOD.
