Marty McFly Auction

Now on My Auction Barn! (Sometimes the link doesn't work - not a problem! You can either click it again, or they're easy to find on the MAB home page.)

This is "Marty McFly", a custom on the brand new Breyer Bobby Jo. I didn't really intend to do such a drastic resculpt on a great brand new horse, but well... here we are! Marty is now in a slow pivot, perfect for all kinds of performance. His hind legs have been moved closer together for a collected maneuver. His hindquarters were completely resculpted, as was his entire barrel to give him a nice back lift and accommodate his weight shift. His front left was straightened up a bit to make the entire position more upright, and the right leg is now in a relaxed sidestepping motion. Marty's neck is also redone with a slightly arched head tuck. He has a new nose and mouth, new attentive ears, and slightly fatter jaw. He is topped off with a full tail and showy braid pattern in his mane.

Marty McFly has been painted in a glowing sooty dappled palomino sabino. He's crammed with dapples which were painted in multiple layers to enhance the effect of being melded into the coat. Marty's markings are mapped and he is finished off with all the details my work is known for including detailed eyes, hooves with growth rings, textured chestnuts, and mane bands in dark green.

Shipping is $30 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments. 

Generous time payments are welcome - I am happy to work with customers to make purchases possible. My usual 30% deposit is not required for this auction. Please inquire before bidding so that I know what to expect.
