Currently FOR SALE/trade
Martouf – Mulberry grey HA Fritz resin – $150 or TRADE
This is the Horsing Around Fritz resin sculpted by Tina Lamport. He’s been customized to have a longer, more proportionate back. He is painted a soft, detailed mulberry grey with a red-grey mane and tail. His body color is a combination of pastels, acrylic hairing, and white charcoal pencil and his mane and tail are done in acrylics.
Martouf is very secure in his base, which comes off for storage or transport. This resin is about 3.5 inches tall without the base. He’s about curio scale.
Martouf has multiple NAN cards in both breed and workmanship, and a Reserve Champ in workmanship. He comes with flat ribbons and NAN cards. I will include his breed and color reference page.
Martouf is priced at $150 plus shipping. I would also like to trade or partial trade for items on my want list.

Hi there! I love your blog! I was looking at your SM saddles, would you sell me a pattern? I just can’t seem to make one. :(
Thanks so much!
The tutorial I use is by Dreamflite Design and costs $10- which is 110% worth it. You can find it at http://dreamflitedesign.blogspot.com/p/english-saddle-guide.html
Would you consider trading a custom SM for a Hale resin? My Hale has some prepping done, but he still needs work. It doesn’t have to include a paintjob, just the customized model? I just adore the head down gelding you did!
Is there a pattern for the dragon head mask that was featured for the black horse photo? or is there a premade version? I looks awesome!
Are you referring to the mask from https://shoestringstable.wordpress.com/2012/10/11/wacky-horse-costumes/ ? I just happened to find those pictures online, so if there’s a pattern I don’t know about it. You might try googling for it though.
Can you make custom models? I would LOVE to order a few from time to time.
Yes, but I don’t take commissions very often. Except for trades! If you have something on my want list and are interested in a trade, definitely get in touch!
I’m afraid I only have the newer horses, I’m hoping to get one of the Marwari stallion models in a blue roan color.
I was also hoping to get some nice looking stablemates and a classic repaired/repainted.
I’m sorry, but with me being so busy right now I am only doing commissions as trades.
I would really like the pony mare.
If you’re interested in purchasing one of the horses above, please email me at leah.koerper (at) gmail.com. Thanks!
What kinds of pastels do you use?
I use a variety of brands- I started out with a set of Rembrandts and I also use AlphaColor Earthtones, CreataColor, Prismacolor, Schminke, and Blick brand pastels.
I was just wondering if that white stallion was still available and how do I pay you for him?
Is the $16 include postage?
Thanks, Tombi xxx
Are you still making and selling horses? I would live to have one of these amazing figures!
I’m still making them and occasionally sell things, but I don’t paint horses specifically for sales or do public commissions.
Hi. I’ve tried to repaint Schleich horses myself, but they never turn out. They’re always sticky afterward. I’ve never primed, stripped, or put finish on my horses. Should I do these things? Also, what paint do you use? I use acrylic (but again, the stickiness!) Thanks again.
For best results, you definitely want to use primer (or gesso, which is a paint-on primer) on your horses. I’ve used a combination of acrylics and pastels to paint Schleichs and similar rubbery-plastic horses. The most crucial thing for these types of horses is to seal them in modge podge after you are done. This prevents the stickiness you are experiencing. I wrote a long post here about this process. All of the horses I painted and sealed with modge podge have stayed un-sticky for years.
Thanks for the help!
