    Howdy y'all! I'm starting to remodel breyer horse models. I have had great luck so far, I've only done three, but I've been painting my whole life. Here are some pictures of two of them...

    So, as you can see, I need more practice. I love doing this, but I don't have any models to use. If any of you have new or used models that I could buy from you, I'd love the help. THANKS!!!

    (Sorry, I won't take any with broken legs. Tails are fine because I can make new tails, but not legs.)

    Always admired folks who could do that!
    My DD has some that are dupes so I will list on BST to find them new homes.

    I have some "bodies" I can part with. I'll look to see what they are and let you know.

    Here is one I finished today! Enjoy! I'm still looking to buy models from anyone and would consider making a personalized model for someone if that someone provided a model and paid for it. PM or email me for prices.

    lol Yeah... I wanted to keep her... but I gave her to my choir teacher. I know she'll have a loving home there. [​IMG] Here are some of my next three projects just to keep you updated and I have one for sale.

    Lil' Buckeroo (Name pending) This little colt started out as an old and very collectable model. I am not sure of the name or number. He didn't have a breyer logo on him. His ear was broken and his color was yellowing and rubbed. I filed down his seams and reconstructed his ear. He was then painted to a loud bay paint. I am asking $40 for him.

    This breyer was my mom's old breyer. It came to me in a very depressing state with no leg and no ear. I reconstructed it's leg and ear and am now working on blending the plasters and smoothing out the seams. I think I'm going to try to paint it with a boquet of flowers on it.
