Breyer * Black Jack * Us Caparisoned Military Horse Resin Figure Model :
This sale is for the Breyermodel, Black Jack. He is a resin model that was produced from 2003 to 2005 and is Breyer's tribute to "this historic horse, and to all those who have fallen and will never ride again" From his Certificate of Authenticity :
"It is a time-honored tradition to have a soldier lead a caparisoned, or riderless, horse as part of a full-honors military funeral cortage, an honor given only to a U.S. Army or Marine Corps Colonel or higher. A stunning jet black Morgan-Quarter Horse cross, Black Jack was dressed in an empty saddle with the rider's spurred boots facing backwards in the stirrups, which symbolized not only the loss of a fallen leader, but one who was looking back over his troops for the last time. During his lifetime, Black Jack escorted over one thousand military funerals at Arlington National Cemetary including those of Presidents Herbert Hoover, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and General of the Army Douglas MacArthur."
The bottom of Black Jack's wooden base reads "Proudly served from November 22, 1952 - June 1, 1973." I see no flaws on the model, but his resin base seems to be a little warped because it does not sit level on the wooden base. He comes with his box and styrofoam packaging, the book, Black Jack, America's Famous Riderless Horse, his wooden base and his Certificate of Authenticity.
This model is Traditional sized, which is approximately 12 x 9 inches.
