Hoscar was sculpted by Kristina Lucas Francis. He came in two versions, a standing version that was introduced in 1998 and measured 4" tall and a rearing one that was introduced in 2011 and measured about 8" tall. The larger one came in blue crackle and tan crackle, the smaller one came in many different colors. Kristina retains the copyright for the smaller Hoscar but gave the copyright of the larger one to Joanie. The larger Hoscar was only awarded at the 2011 BOYC as he was too large and difficult to ship to other shows. In addition, many were broken in transport back from BOYC.
