Judy Renee Pope was my room mate and closest friend for 20 years and I am devastated by her passing in 2007. See more work by Judy in the Model Horse Gallery
TRABAG- Breyer Proud Arabian mare that was remade & repainted by Judy back in the early 90s. She had been one of Judy's all time favorites and I remember how hard she worked to make her as perfect as possible in correcting every flaw as she knew that judges would knock her down for her wild markings even tho she was a portrait of a real Arabian mare in Argentina in the 1940s (who must have been pretty darned impressive as Lady Wentworth herself tried to obtain her). I can't even say how much it means to me to find one of Judy's favorites and I will treasure her for the rest of my life. you can see the real Trabag she was modelled after on mhy Pinterest board here - Trabag
