Feuertänzer (Custom Breyer Stablemate Standardbred)

Feuertänzer - Custom Breyer Stablemate Standardbred - Left

Feuertänzer is German for Fire Dancer, which fits this little guy to a T. He’s a shaded red-orange faux-chestnut with orange, yellow, and red doodle pony markings. Since the markings use the same colors as his coat, the shadings are now a little hard to see. He’s definitely one of the models that looks better in person!

This little guy has led quite an adventurous life! He started out as a plain red-orange faux-chestnut (as you can see in the old picture) and after a few fights with other models in the body box he ended up too badly scarred to continue as a simple repaint custom.

I didn’t want to strip him and start over, so after fixing his scars I broke out the paints and turned him into a doodle pony.

The markings are very loosely inspired by Maori tattoos and cover his top line, neck, face, and hindquarters. His chest, stomach, and front legs are un-doodled although he has some faux-cornet bands over his front hooves. He’s got solid black eyes, a glossy finish, and a whole lot of attitude.

I have no idea what the fantasy show rings are like nowadays, but he’s certain to stand out in a crowd!

      This little guy was sold a few years ago, but something similar (I don’t even make exact copies) would be $55 plus body cost plus shipping.

      Sorry for the delay, I didn’t see this post until now! 🙁

          I don’t have any painted now, but I can do a custom order of a similar color and pattern on that mold (or a different mold). Just drop me a line on my Etsy store and I can set you up a quote! 🙂
