Dun’wishin (Custom Breyer Stablemate Friesian)

Dun'wishin - Custom Breyer Stablemate Friesian - Martha Bechtel - Left

There’s always a horse you spend your childhood dreaming about– and sometimes you get lucky and end up with a pony you get to name after a pun! 😂

Dun’wishin is a Breyer Stablemate G3 Friesian painted to a dark red liver flaxen chestnut with a small star, brown eyes, grey hooves, and a matte finish. His eyes and inner nostrils have been lightly glossed.

Interestingly, there’s actually a red liver chestnut Friesian called Fire Magic (although he’s not flaxen) so this guy isn’t an impossible color! … Just very very unlikely. 😅

He’s had his seams and logo removed, but no other changes were made to the mold. I personally would consider him possibly PSQ, but not LSQ. He was painted mainly as a fun shelf piece, so she wasn’t meant for the show ring.

The Breyer Stablemate G3 Friesian is roughly 3 inches tall, 4 inches long, and an inch wide. Per Breyer Stablemates are all 1:32 scale, but it varies a bit between molds.

Dun’wishin was started back in July 2018 and finished up in September 2021. He was part of my ‘paint ALL the brown horses!’ workbench stampede and was the last one finished from the first batch.
