Hunter

Magpie Model Horses - Collection of Hunters

The tallest of the Magpie molds is the somewhat shaggy Hunter.

This mold is six inches high at the ear tips, with a textured coat, and a mouth which is slightly agape, ready to accept a bit.

The Hunter, Shetland, and Foal molds were created at the same time as they are all part of the Big Red mold, which was made around 1973.
