OOAK Doll & Treasured Resin

 

A tiny OOAK (one of a kind) rider doll. She is riding a Treasured resin.

 

My little rider is only 2” tall. She is sculpted out of ProSculpt polymer clay on a wire armature and then fired. She is my first original doll, having been sculpted without the use of molds of any kind. Her hair is a beautiful soft mohair. She has been painted with Genesis paints. Her cut off jeans and tank top have been glued on and painted.

 

Her horse stands 2 3/4" and is from my limited resin edition "Treasured". She has been haired with a naturally colored soft grey mohair. Her coat is finished in acrylic paints and pastels to give her a nice warm grey color. Her eyes are realistically painted and glossed. Her hooves are left barefoot. She is permanently adhered to her base which has been painted in layers of earthy colors to which I have added a few pieces of pink granite.

 

This Treasured resin is "Fairylight Snow Goddess" #10/15 of the artist proof edition.

 

The bridle is customized from one I bought from a model horse tackmaker in order to fit Treasured exactly. The bridle is attached with wax so that the horse can be shown without a rider in model horse shows.

"Hundreds of trainers withdrew their horses from competition at a major Tennessee Walking Horse show last weekend after USDA inspectors arrived on the scene to examine horses for violations of the Horse Protection Act."

 

"In 1998, The Tennessean published several articles on the walking horse industry. They interviewed defectors from the world of soring and the big lick. Pamela Reband, a former TWHBEA director, admitted in print to "sanctioning torture for 30 years." -From the article Sore Winners by Andrew Lang, DVM

Facts on the industry

Here are a couple facts from the above link:

 

Of the 54 Riders Cup Top Trainers named by the Walking Horse Report in 2007 ONLY 4 had NO SORING VIOLATIONS. The rest shared a total of 204 violations.

 

 

There were 15 HPA suspensions between the 13 honorees recently inducted into the Walking Horse Hall of Fame. One honoree had 6 suspensions. One honoree who had no suspensions was the organist.

 

 

"Matte Pulle of the “Nashville Scene” in the October 29, 2003 edition, reports of an interview with a long time TWH trainer that ...  The USDA, which loosely monitors the industry, continues to cite successful trainers for soring-related infractions, including Bill Bobo, who won this year's World Grand Championship at the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration. Rhoads says that he recently walked into a barn of walking horses and saw 30 of them lying on the ground--a sure sign that they were in too much pain from the abuse to stand up - from friendsofsoundhorses.org/horseletter
