Now I have a galloping horse for my back-burner goal of entering model horse photo shows [New Book].
According to Identify Your Breyer, the body is the Cigar model, introduced in 1998. The mold has been used for several racehorses – Cigar, Affirmed, Sunday Silence, Barbaro, & Seabiscuit – and two other eventers – Woodburn & Winsome Andante.
I also bought the model in honor of the Sam I ride [Sultan’s Miracle Man], who is awesome in his own way, and because some days you just wanna buy yourself a new toy.
Technical notes: Rain created an impromptu session of learning to shoot with flash. I put the camera back on auto 😦 and fiddled with the angles to keep the light off the shiny. Not a horrid result given my working conditions & current ability.
Thank you for reading,
