First off, hi!

Now, here's what I am interested in doing: my grandfather carved a realistic horse out,of wood a very long time ago. I would like to make a 3d scan of the horse, which is about 12 inches tall, and have it recreated via 3d printing so that I can share the object with other family members...at least a close facsimile of the original.

Anyone have suggestions on the type of material that should be used? It's fairly smooth finished and has some fine details in the eyes,ears, hooves, and mane. The tail is actual horse hair.
