Piano Adagietto carries on my grand tradition of naming models after musical notation (Senza Sordina, Piano Forte, etc.). Piano is soft and Adagietto is slow, but lighthearted– a perfect match to his ambling gait or “paso llano.”
This handsome fella is a Breyer Stablemate Peruvian Paso painted to a deep seal bay with two white socks. I sanded his seams and removed the Breyer logo, but no other customizations have been made to the mold. (Although the more I look at his hooves, the more I really want to resculpt them!)
I love a good dark bay because of the depth you can get to the colors. There are four different browns used to create his coat, not including black!
You may have seen this little guy featured in some of the prop listings, but as much as I love him, he’s just too dark to take good photos with. Now that I have Ladybird to work with, he’s just hanging out in the wings and longing for a new bookshelf to call home.
Breyer Stablemates are 1:32 scale model horses and are approximately 4″ long by 3″ high. This little guy is photo show quality and may be live show quality, but I haven’t shown in years. If you would like additional photos, just let me know!
