Balling Gesche by Feldman

This copy finished by Danielle Feldman 2006

Carlee Balling warmblood foal sculpture "Gesche" painted a dark bay appaloosa by Danielle Feldman. This paintwork done in 2006, I suspect this is painted over an older paintjob as only 5 in this edition were released unpainted, and I think those 5 ended up finished by Carlee (except for the one I have--I painted her)

This resin was created in 1997 by Carlee and was sold as a run of 50, mostly painted by Tom Bainbridge. Carlee reserved 5 copies for people who had expressed interest in the horse prior to it being cast. I got one, Kate Cabot got one (Carlee painted this one), Leslie Phelps got one, and I forget who got the other two.

This foal has been shown as an appaloosa sport horse named "Wap's Baby Doll"

Ephemera: ROM certificate in AR Sport Foal

Newsworthy #712014 "Silver Medalist"

Special Run, fall 2008, 350 made

Newsworthy #712014 "Silver Medalist" metallic silver with white points. Circle Breyer-Reeves logo/ Produced fall of 2008, one of 350.

This pony was also produced in a gold and bronze version, 350 of each color. They were given to dealers who ordered a certain amount of merchandise. Dealers could then sell the ponies. Ponies were initially offered at $300 or more, but did not prove very popular at that price. I picked this one up in the Breyer store at the 2010 Breyerfest for $70. The gold and bronze ones were $75, and there were still many of each color left on Sunday. There were mostly silvers, then bronze, then gold.

Condition: 3+
