These images show Kathleen Moody’s curly horse resin model horse “Let’s Fiesta”.
These pictures were taken when I purchased the unpainted resin model new in about 2008. I have since sold this model but noticed that there are not very many pictures of this resin model horse online, and even fewer of it in its unpainted state. I think these photos of an unpainted model of let’s fiesta really highlight the gorgeous texture of the coat and the mane on this curly horse model horse.

I love that Kathleen Moody created a model of this rare and unique horse breed. And the breed traits are captured so well. I purchased this model because the particular confirmation – the heavy Spanish style neck and the thick jowls- closely resembled the confirmation of my own curly horse gelding. I intended to have it painted to match but never got around to it – which is just as well, as I have downsized several times since then and being able to part with this unpainted model horse was easier than if I had commissioned an artist to do a custom resin paint job personalizing it to my horse’s coloring.
Since this purchase, I have started doing art with resin myself- not creating model horses but working in the media in various forms- and this has helped me respect how intricate the detailing of this resin model horse is.
