I'm looking for this particular horse statue:





My wife had one exactly like this, but it broke beyond repair. I'm trying to find an exact replacement, but it's proved very difficult. I've found a few websites, even Walmart, that did sell it, but everyone is out of stock.

If you take all the key words from various descriptions I've come across, it's "hand carved badan (or albazia) wood." It's also about 16" tall, and maybe 20" long.

If anyone is good at tracking down hard-to-find items, and could help me locate one of these for sale, I would be indebted to you.

Thanks!

I talked to the carvers and they was wondering if you have the broken one and if you could mail it to us so we could get the exact size and figurative work or your phone# so they could ask you about specifics. Where do you live I'm in Michigan. We were debating on how it was carved all in one piece or in sections, that is the reason we were wondering if you had the broken pieces. Thanks Larry

No, sorry, we don't have it anymore. It was thrown away before I could try to salvage it. We live in Colorado.

Thanks, but it was a dead site when I came across it before you posted it. No one answers the phone, emails are not replied to, and the online ordering system doesn't accept credit cards.

That photo at the start of the thread is the only one (stock internet photo). Lots of places claim to sell it, but no one actually does.

My wife loved it, and when it broke before, I fixed it. Then the cat chewed on it a little, and I re-finished it and fixed it again. Alas, it broke a 3rd time and it was thrown out before I could try and fix it again.

I read this forum's rules closely... nothing states a want ad has to be gun or GunBroker related. If you can find otherwise, please post.

You're correct since GunBroker lists items other than guns. Besides, cowboys ride horses and they carry guns so listing a horse is ok, too!

Not exactly the same, I know, but appears to be out of the same workshop or close.....

"Most people fancy themselves innocent of those crimes of which they cannot be convicted." Seneca

"Hope has two children: anger, and courage." Augustine, Confessions

Der Verzagten aber und Ungläubigen und Greulichen und Totschläger und Hurer und Zauberer und Abgöttischen und aller Lügner, deren Teil wird sein in dem Pfuhl, der mit Feuer und Schwefel brennt; das ist der andere Tod.
