Birthday Week - Profile: G1 Saddlebred #711096

JCPenney Special Run Gift Set
#711096 12-Piece Stablemates Set
1996



This lovely little dapple grey was the first release of the G1 Saddlebred since the mold was discontinued at the end of 1990 and the first release with painted ribbons - there quite a stir when the JCPenney set was released.

Somewhat due to this excitement, my MAI Pisces Iscariot took Light Breed Champion his first time out in early 1997. Even without the novelty-factor, the mold can still show well in a modern show ring - Pisces managed to pick up a first last year in a crowded Gaited class.
