I’ve wanted to make a pegasus with real wings for a long time, and I finally found the right combination! While most birds in the United States are protected by law, the European starling is invasive and these wings are likely from a professional exterminator (I did not prep them myself).
I added them to a Breyer action stock horse foal (traditional scale) that I got from a thrift store. The left foreleg had been broken off and lost, so I sculpted a new one for it, and I gave him a new paint job inspired by the non-breeding colors of the starling. He makes a striking little winged horse, galloping to get up speed for takeoff! A truly one of a kind custom.
