A quality weathervane depicting a mustang made from 1.5mm thick steel which has been treated with a metal phosphate solution to increase the adhesiveness of paint and prevent corrosion, then powder coated with a black polyester paint.
Polyester paint has a high solid content and therefore adds strength, making the weathervane less susceptible to scratching and chemical cleaning. It is also UV stabilised.
Mustangs are free-roaming horses in the Western United States, descended from horses introduced to the Americas by Spanish explorers in the 16th century. Derived from the Spanish word “mesteño”, meaning ownerless beast or stray horse, they are a medium sized breed generally between 14 and 15 hands high, and weighing around 360kg. These horses are known for their fantastic stamina and speed.
This weathervane captures this beautiful creature at a gallop and would make a great gift idea for any horse lover.
