You need to login in from the main page you first used to ask your question to get to the website.
The site charges additional fees for phone calls. I rarely take phone call assessments as my number is *****
From the size of your bronze, I can give you a retail value estimated range. I found one with horses by Dsve McGary.
A bronze sculpture by McGary similar in size to yours retails for $12,000-14,000 assuming perfect condition.
The auction values are much less because retail art galleries often double or triple the auction sales price.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.
All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

If you would like to work with me on future questions, I would be pleased to work with you.
All you have to do is put my name (Doris) at the beginning of your question.
Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort. This is of no cost to you.
Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.
Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system.
Kind regards.
