More than 300 breeds of horse exist in the world today. Throughout history they have interacted with humans in recreational and sporting capacities, as well as in vocational areas such as police, agriculture and warfare. Various terminology is used to describe a horse depending on gender and life stage, these included – colt, filly, foal, gelding, mare, stallion and yearling.
As with all cast iron products, this statue will continue to gently develop its own unique patina. Depending on positioning and environment, this can include mossing and general weathering. In order to begin this process, we store these statues outside. As rust forms its own seal, decades of service are ensured. Whilst a weathered look is generally preferred, a uniform finish can be achieved by priming and spraying or painting as required.
Cast iron statuary has been at the core of our range of Home & Garden features since we began trading over 10 years ago. Models have traditionally included stags, busts and nudes in a variety of sizes. We have also recently introduced a selection of giant and life sized animal features, including horse portraits to accompany our ever popular horse busts.
