Primrose lives in the mountain region of Golden, Colorado, and as a baby Primrose loved to run and romp in her pasture with her mama. One night dogs got into the pasture and began to chase Primrose nipping and biting at her legs. She was very frightened as her mother struggled to keep the dogs away from the little donkey. Despite her mother’s efforts, the dogs kept pursuing and began tearing repeatedly at the bleeding wounds of Primrose’s right hind leg. Morning found an exhausted little donkey with the leg nearly chewed off at the hock. Her owner rushed her to the Colorado State University Veterinary Medicine Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. Unfortunately the damage to the leg was so great it could not be saved. However, the clinic arranged for a prosthesis to be fit to the little donkey in order to save her from being put to sleep. She has to have it refitted as she grows, but she has adjusted well and uses that prosthesis as though it were her natural leg.

Dawn Weimer "Touching the Spirit"

Contact Tom to inquire about or purchase any of her fine bronze sculpture creations. "Touching the Spirit" goes a long way in describing her fine work. Always in bronze, never inexpensive substitutes. We accept Checks, cash and wire transfer (call for instructions).

Dawn Weimer Studios offers only lost wax bronze sculpture cast with the utmost care and integrity at Art Castings of Colorado in Loveland, Colorado, ("Sculptureville,USA!"). As each different sculpture edition of Dawn's sells out, a letter is sent to every collector of that bronze piece stating that this particular edition/size is sold out... Enclosed with the letter is a small piece cut from my original mold which further verifies that this particular edition/size will not be produced again. Should you ever come across a sculpture you feel is suspicious of being a imitation of one of my pieces, please contact me so I can look into the matter of possible violation of copyright.

Virtually any bronze can (because of the NEW 3-D technology) NOW be made a larger Table-size or even larger lifesize and/or monumental... Look for announcements of NEW enlargements of several of Dawn's bronze sculptures soon! Inquiries for all these various sizes are welcome.
