Happy Belated 4th Birthday!

Well, it's been four years and we managed to get through Generations One through Three. There's still plenty of material to cover, but as you can tell from my lack of updates after the final G3 conga, I just haven't had the time, so it's time to put the blog to bed.

Look-Alikes: G3 Walking Arabian

Compared to the G1 and G2 molds, the G3 Walking Arabian hasn't been used much, but it still has a good number of look-alikes.

Conga! - G3 Walking Arabian

The G3 Walking Arabian, mold number #5622, was first released in 2006 and was sculpted by Jane Lunger. It is also called the Arabian, Arabian - Walking, or Isabel (based on the first release of this mold).

Singles: Special Run Singles Assortments

When new singles start appearing on store shelves, a short, sharp buying frenzy generally occurs which intensifies, or dies away when them models are confirmed to be special runs or just unannounced regular runs.

Look-Alikes: G3 Tennessee Walking Horse

With such a diverse population of G3 Tennessee Walking Horses, the look-alikes, majestic as they may be, are quite sparse.

Changes are Afoot

In June of 2013, I started this blog as a way to avoid succumbing to Baby Brain and to distract me from a major disappointment; a little British business called Magpie Models was for sale and we just couldn't see how we could swing the purchase.

Fast forward seven months and we find ourselves back in negotiations for the company. In November of 2014, we completed the purchase. It took us a few months before we could find time to drive down to Braintree to collect Magpie, but we managed to make the trip in January 2015. That's about 480 miles in a moving van for the non-UK readers.

For a variety of reasons we kept the purchase very quiet over the next few years while we constructed a workshop and lined up supplies and printers and such. Now we're in the final stages and hoping to open in September of 2017!

Why am I rambling about Magpie Model Horses on a Breyer Stablemate blog? Due to the time commitment required, this will be the last year for Many Mini Hooves. Posts will continue until our fourth birthday when we will finish the Generation Three molds. I feel this is a good stopping point, though I haven't exhausted all of my material.

The blog posts and pictures will remain online for future reference. MMH may return one day once I settle into my new role.

If you're interested in seeing what Magpie Model Horses is all about, pop on over to our website. Magpie can be found on many social media platforms and has its own forum, blog, and reference site, too.

I want to thank all of our readers for following us and everyone who has contributed to our posts. It's been a brilliant run.
