Top: Rastaman, dapple grey Arabian
stallion customized from the Breyer Traditional Family Arabian
Mare and owned by Beth Peart. This model, customized from the
"lowly" Family Arabian Mare, literally blew people's
minds at the 1977 Model Horse Congress. It was easily the most
drastic remake of its time! Inspired by Gericault's famous painting,
"Officer of the Mounted Guard," his teeth were really
ivory cut from old piano keys!
Bottom: Touch and Go, chestnut Arabian filly customized from the Breyer Traditional Family Arabian Foal and last owned by Gail Gregor; created in 1977
