Arabian

Magpie Model Horses - Collection of Arabians

Measuring 5.25 inches at the ear tips, the Arabian is the second tallest model, and is the second oldest mold, introduced in 1971. The mouth is slightly open, allowing the model to accept a bit.

Like the Welsh Pony, the Arabian has a smooth body. Later molds, such as the Hunter and Foal, have textured bodies.
