Sarah Minkiewicz Breunig customs

Mon Nafa Rani and Jamil Mhuratt are Breyer Arabian model horses that have been customized by equine artist and sculptor Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig of the USA.
Created more than 20 years ago they are considered vintage customs in the model horse hobby. Back in the late 80s and while Sarah still owned her, Rani won
"Best Paint Job" in one class of 576 entries at the ELITE DECORATIONS REWORKERS REVIEW , a photo show and showcase for these CM miniature horse models.

In a dream come true Sarah M-B offered Mon Nafa Rani to me in 1989. Rani continued her winning ways and was my top performing model show horse for years!
Jamil Mhuratt , another Sarah Mink custom of same vintage and ' brother ' of Rani, lived with a friend in Germany for many years and was then offered to me.

Some newer photos of Rani and Jamil were added here just to show what great shape they are still in. In some photos I have utilized some of my own photography
as backdrops as well as sand, moss, pebbles and plant material I had been gathering as props - all to give a sense of realism. Also added to this gallery are some
excerpts from early letters Sarah Minkiewicz sent to me. Plus some samples of modern SMB equine sculpture and art from Minkiewicz Studios .
