Saucy was sculpted by Kristina Lucas Francis and represents a young Suffolk Punch mare. She is Curio scale, or in other words, 1:12 or Breyer "Classic" scale. Introduced in 1995, Saucy was the first Pour Horse piece offered publicly to collectors. There were 94 greys produced. The very first grey production pieces had varied colored two tone ribbons and tended to have much lighter body shading. The bulk of the run had tri-colored ribbons in blue, green, and black, and body shading varied quite a bit. Slightly under 100 chestnuts were produced. The very first chestnut pieces were hand painted a dark, solid red with little airbrush shading. The next batch of pieces, sold at the 1995 Jamboree event, were a slightly lighter, peachier solid color, also with little airbrush shading. Subsequently production pieces were airbrushed, the very first having solid blue ribbons and the rest having blue and purple ribbons. The actual body color of the chestnuts varies widely, from a dark chestnut to a light, dusty chestnut. A number of bisques and several dozen custom glazed Saucys were produced as well.
