Shetland Pony

Magpie Model Horses - Collection of Shetlands

This stocky little pony is a bit smaller than the Donkey, making it the smallest of the adult molds. The mouth is sculpted slightly agape, allowing the model to accept a bit and the body has a lovely hairy texture.

Though this mold was available in a range of colours during the Dream Pony days, starting around 1973, as a Magpie it was only released as Newsletter specials and made its first appearance in 1993.
