Ladybird (Custom Breyer Stablemate Loping Quarter Horse)

Ladybird - Custom Chestnut Dungaree Breyer Stablemate Model Horse

Since Piano Adagietto was too dark to take good prop photos with, I needed a new horse to help out around the farm. As much as I love bays, I figured it was long past time to paint up a chestnut!

She’s a customized Breyer Stablemate G4 Loping Quarter Horse (aka Dungaree) painted to a flaxen red chestnut with two white socks. She’s had her seams sanded and logo removed, but no other customizations have been made.

Thanks to Google Photos (and my compulsive photo-taking) I can tell you that she was started in January 2017, made lots of progress in August 2017, and finally finished in February 2018. She was one of those horses that sat for months between updates, a habit I’m trying to get out of! 😂

I still need to get better photos of her in the new lightbox, but when I do I’ll come back and update the post. Until then you can see her in my shop showing off the model horse props!
