Trakehner – Abdullah, Limited Edition
Abdullah was called by many the best Trakehner ever to compete in Show Jumping. Born in 1970, the great grey stallion competed internationally for 14 years, including winning the ATA Open Jumper Championship eight times, bringing home a Silver Medal for the US at the 1984 Olympics as well as contributing to the US Team Gold for that event. He passed away from colic in 2000 at 29 years old.
Breyer's portrait model on the Trakehner mold recreates Abdullah's coloring with light dappling on his fore- and hindquarters, shaded legs and face. He also wears Abdullah’s two signature dark dapples on his neck. He was the Limited Edition model for 1989.
This fellow is in Excellent condition with just tiny hoof edge rubs and tiny muzzle rubs. He has a small black mark and a couple of specks on his tail that should clean off. He is slightly yellowed, but a couple days in a sunny place will brighten him right up again. This guy has a lot better shading than most of this release, with a nicely shaded head and neck, and softly shaded knees and hocks.
