Friesian foal sculpted by Maggie Bennett painted by me.

To answer a recurring question: "Friesian foal" is the name of the sculpture mold that Maggie created.  It can represent a variety of breeds and be painted to whatever color suits the artist's needs.
The owner of this little one had it commissioned as the baby of two of her other mini's. The Papa was done by me also (Don Juan--the silver dapple pinto). The mamma was done by another artist. The client gave me a list of possibilities that the genes of the parents could produce and let me choose from them for the foal's color as a surprise to her. It was a fun commission :) (Smile)

Oh my goooooosh that looks amazing! I really admire how well you're able to craft something so small, wow 0:
I know many people have already said this, but I'm guessing you meant half Friesian? Since pure ones are solid black. c:

Thanks so much!! To answer your question regarding the breed, as mentioned in a previous answer, "Friesian foal" is the name of the mold sculpted by Maggie Bennett. It can represent a variety of breeds, really. The owner of this little one had it commissioned as the baby of two of her other mini's. She didn't pick a name for the foal yet so I had to use the mold name in the title. The Pappa was done by me also (Don Juan--the silver dapple pinto). The mamma was done by another artist. The client gave me a list of possibilities that the genes of the parents could produce and let me choose from them for the foal's color to a surprise them. It was a fun commission :) (Smile)
