Kellye's cobra

Good things come to those who wait.
Kellye Bussey's Cobra has been several years in the making.
These lovely resins were released by German sculpter Brigitte Eberl in mid 2010.  
Kellye bought a set and sent them off to Tom Bainbridge for painting.  She also commissioned me to make their tack.  And then she waited.
Not surprisingly, the tack was finished first.  Other than the serreta, it wasn't a very complicated set.
The first two mares arrived in Texas some six months ago.  Numbers three are four "came home" yesterday.  
Congratulations, Kellye!  It's been a long wait, but the results are worth every minute.  Your Cobra is amazing!


  1. What caught my attention in the last pic is how utterly adorable and sweet that Gilen foal is! The mares are also gorgeous.

  2. Gorgeous mares, cute foal and beautiful pictures! I would love to own a cobra set :)

  3. The 2 darker mares are stunning and I can't wait to see the other 2. Kellye has done such a wonderful job with her color choices.

  4. one word. BEAUTIFUL!!!

    The pictures, the mares, the foal, the tack and doll, it's all so realistic and stunning!

  5. This is one amazing set but in real life it would have taken MUCH longer :).

  6. Wow! What an amazing set-up! The mares are awesome and the tack so perfect. Thank you for the information also - I love the educational as well as entertaining aspects of your blog! Thanks! Way to go, Kellye!

  7. I genuinely thought the first photo was a real scene. O___O

  8. The horses, the tack, the setup- all so beautiful! I think I'm in love! :)

  9. Really LOVE the collars!! can you do tooling of a "brand" into the collar leather?
