We previewed these guys to you on Monday and saw some pretty good guesses for who they might be!
This county in southwest England retains a distinct cultural identity that reflects its history and is one of the Celtic Nations. This part of Britain has rich history and folklore and names among its early rulers King Mark of Cornwall (of the Tristan and Iseult legend) and King Arthur. Its flag, St. Piran’s Flag, is a white cross on a black background.
Cornwall, the grand prize for this year’s Best Customs Contest winners, was originally sculpted and designed by Sommer Prosser as Latigo (mold #728). He has been re-imagined in a stunning shaded black blanket appaloosa using the same pattern as his first release in the Premier Club back in 2013! With mapped spots in his blanket, detailed stripped hooves, and silver shoes!
This is the language of the people of Brittany, a cultural region in the west of France that was inhabited by Celtic tribes – the same tribes of Britons that ultimately peopled the southern coasts of the British isles. This state’s flag, called “Gwenn-ha-du” in Breton, is composed of 9 horizontal, alternating black and white stripes and an ermine canton that is representative of the former coat of arms of Brittany.
Breton, this year’s Runner Up prize for Best Customs finalists, has been done on our lovely Lipizzaner (mold #5734) sculpted by Kelly Sealey. He may be small in stature, but he makes quite the impression finished in a shaded black overo! First released in 2018 as our Premier Club bonus Stablemates model, this little guy will make a lovely addition to you mini herd.
