This is a pre-made grass base for model horses or other scale animals. The base is too small to be used for photo showing and is meant for display purposes only. (Note: The horses and fences shown are not included, this listing is for one grass base.)

The base is 5.25 inches long and 3.25 inches wide, at the widest points. The grass-covered area is roughly 4.5 by 2.5 and the post holes are inset roughly a quarter of an inch (so the fence runs slightly behind the widest part of the base. It is a good fit for most 1:32 scale models (Breyer Stablemate) and without a fence would work for smaller scales.

The wooden base is sanded, painted black and green, finished in a glossy-ish sealer, and then covered with model train grass. If you’d like, I can reseal the edges, so it’s more of a matte semi-gloss. The grass is attached in multiple layers with a mixture of water and Elmer’s wood glue. The base has been through several tap and wind tests to make sure it’s pretty sturdy.

An additional bag of grass is included in case the base is ever damaged. The grass can be attached with a mixture of water and Elmer’s glue. Instructions on how to repair the base (and how it was made) can be found here.

This base is compatible with Template A fences.

The base will ship in a handmade cardstock box that can be used for storage. The box has two flaps that can be curled to hold the base securely and release with pull tabs.

Materials used: Artminds Wooden plaque, Green and Black acrylic craft paints, Krylon matte sealer, wood glue, train grass mix (Woodland Scenics, T45 Fine Turf Green Grass and, T46 Fine Turf Weeds).
