The Thoroughbred Horse High Relief Wall Sculpture
Quality and therefore, Expectations not what I hoped for
I like the wall sculpture design, but the quality left lots to be desired. The leg, which arrives unattached, would not secure itself snuggly in the hole, which is lined with a smooth plastic sleeve. After fitting it a bit, I ended up gluing it in with epoxy.
One of the two bridle rings was missing and nowhere to be found. I made one up from a metal ring and attached it (again with epoxy).
The preparation of the molded horse, prior to the sprayed on finish, was pretty rough. I did some careful sanding and scraping to make it right.
The attachments on the back for mounting it on the wall are held on with tiny wood screws that protrude and need to be addressed so that your wall does not get scratched up.
By the time I got done, it needed to be sprayed with a finish once again.

Very Nice Product
I received my Thoroughgred Horse Sculpture within 5 days of ordering. It came very well package. I feel that the Sculpture was very well done and has great details. It would be a perfect gift to give to someone that was big into horses. I would recommend this project.

We ordered this product to accent some other pieces we have and it ended up being the center of attention! The detail is amazing, right down to the flared nostrils and the veins on the nose. I recommend this to anyone who wants a stunning 3-d piece that almost leaps out of the wall.

Love this horse so much I bought another one!
The horse is beautiful. We accidently broke the one I originally bought, so I ordered another one. It is hollow and can be damaged easy, so it is best to place high up on your wall. This is a production design piece made with something like plaster of paris in molds, so it is unlikely that it was made my children as one reviewer remarked. Basically once the buck is made, they pour the plaster in and let it set. Quite simple to do, but the design is beautiful, creative and original.

Stunning from all angles
This piece is even more impressive in person! It is large scale and I hung it in a room with three doors to see it from every angle. It is spectacular!

We hung this horse in our living room (away from the traffic area, as it projects out of the wall quite a bit). We get a lot of compliments on it as it's quite unique and something you wouldn't normally expect to see. Very nicely made. We're very pleased with it.

Horse fell off wall when mounted. The screwed brackets let loose that was attched to horse from the factory. I used car bondo to secure the brackets and to repair the horse when it got cracked when it hit the floor. Other wise it is a nice product.

Very unique wall hanging
Did receive with one ear damaged but choose to repair rather than return. Most disturbing was child's hand print on chest of horse. Would say hand size was a small child which mean child labor by this supplier.
Unpacked on table and ear piece was never found any where. Packed damaged?
