Sadie Shoofly was sculpted by Lynn Fraley and introduced in earthenware ceramic in 2012. She represents a nonspecific light breed mare. Lynn writes of this piece on her blog: "So what’s got her so hot and bothered? A nasty horsefly? A cinch that pinches? An irritating little yipper? An overly friendly suitor? Just having a bad day? That's for collectors to decide...." Lynn was also undergoing chemotherapy as she finished this sculpt. She writes:"Poor Sadie has captured some of my frustration of the past few years; especially this year with all of its medical ups and downs". Sadie is 1:12 scale, or in plastic model horse terminology, Classic scale. At the moment the six Sadies pictured are all the Sadies currently in ceramic. Joanie says she may do a few more.
