Play Sets: More Horse Life

The Stablemate gift sets are perennial favourites and there was a bumper crop between 2008 and 2010.

#5405 Horspital Play Set (2008-09) consists of a golden-toned red bay G3 Standing Stock Horse and a matching G3 Standing Foal. They came equipped with white-bordered red horse blankets, four panels of white fencing, a blue water hose, bucket, medical box, and tote with various medical supplies.

#5407 Stablemates Dude Ranch Play Set (2008-09) comes with a few panels of brown fencing, a ranch gateway, hay bale, and a feed bag. The horses are a black G2 Stock Horse and a bay G2 Cantering Foal. The colour of the foal actually closely resembles that of a black foal going through its first shedding.

Target #720232 Pony Gals - Horspital Play Set (2009) contains two of the prettiest colours on these molds. The G3 Standing Thoroughbred is a smokey grey tobiano and the foal is a soft chestnut tobiano. They come with white, red-bordered rugs, yellow fencing and hose, blue trough, and medical supplies.
