Welsh Pony

Magpie Model Horses - Collection of Welsh Ponies

The Welsh Pony is the most tippy of all the molds. It's in the middle, height-wise at 4.25 inches tall at the ear tips. Unlike the majority of the adult molds, this pony has a closed mouth.

Though Magpie Models did not offer the Welsh Pony until 1990/91, a year or so after the Arabian and Hunter, it was the first mold released by Dream Pony in 1971.
