Maquette in metal!

The maquette (small version) of the life-size is in metal now!  It will be patinaed (black, of course!) on Monday and I'll have the first two in my hands sometime next week!  I have all the bases and name plates - the bronzes just need to be mounted.

I'm really excited about how GORGEOUS they are!  Wow!  It's SOOoooo cool when a piece comes out looking even better than you'd hoped!

Here are some pics the foundry sent me to approve the metal work.  Please don't drool on your keyboards!  LOL

BTW, you can order one of these for yourself - $2250, and a donation will be made to the Fenway Farm Friesian Foundation from each sale.  I take payments at no interest.  Email me at if you're interested.

Can't wait to see them in person!!


  1. Gorgeous! How exciting! What are the dimensions of this "small version"?

  2. 15 1/2" long x 13 1/2" high at the top of the neck x 3 1/2" wide - about 1/7 life-size. You can order one now! The price is $2250, 5% of which will be donated to the Fenway Foundation for the Friesian Horse. (Shipping and handling are charged separately.) I take make payments at no interest. It takes about 4 months for them to be cast, so you could pay over that span of time if you want to. The first ones will be arriving here Thursday, but all in this first batch are sold. Email me at if you'd like to discuss purchase options further. Thanks for your interest!
