It’s been a really, really good mail week. It’s unusual for me but I’m not complaining!
Yesterday my Copperfox Welsh Cob arrived from his journey overseas. Back when the Kickstarter was going on, I pledged to become a “Founding Fox” with a package that included one of the first editions of the new molds. My choice was a black Welsh Cob, who I’ve been calling Sirius Black in my head because I’m a nerd and reference Harry Potter way too much.
The box was a bit battered but everything arrived safe and sound.
an issue of the Model Horse Magazine and supplies and instructions to make a piece of tack,
And of course, the cob:
I am really, really happy with him. He’s a lot heavier than most of the horses in my collection, and seems very sturdy. He has a satin finish (not quite glossy, but just as tough to photograph!) which appears to be very durable. I’m not as paranoid to tack him up like I am with some of my newer Breyers, and that’s always a plus!
He came with two pegs for his front hoof (metal and plastic) and stands well, but not on his own. He is slightly tippy (no worse than Weathergirl or Strapless) but that just might be this particular model.
Overall, I’m happy and am excited to be a part of a brand new model horse company. I’m looking forward to seeing how Copperfox will continue to grow and improve – this is a good first start! I can’t wait to add the others to my herd someday. 😀
