Whilst the time has come for Utterly Horses to go on to new pastures and to retire, this is not the end as we shall be dedicating more time to our own Copperfox range of models and new projects, both equine and in business consultancy. We shall continue to developing our other passions that include encouraging small businesses and entrepreneurship. Our new Copperfox website full of information and news will be up shortly and we will let you know as soon as it's ready for it's first visitors. In the meantime our online UH website will be closing at the end of September and our UH retail shop is open whilst stocks last.
2015 has been a rollercoaster year, with us experiencing challenges and problems that many companies would never see in a lifetime. This year we have been endeavoring to forge a new trading partnership with a major model horse manufacturer with the aim to combine resources, knowledge and expertise. It seemed logical to work together to develop the model horse market here in the UK and make reality of all our plans and dreams that we have gathered over the years. As you can imagine, we had quite a few! Sadly, it was not meant to be, and this is where we find ourselves now.
We have made the tough decision that 2015 will be our final year. The next few months will see us close down Utterly Horses and re-home all our remaining stock and products. Our successful Copperfox Model Horse project still remains very active but without a confirmed date of fruition for Regular Run models as yet.
Utterly Horses is going out with a bang! We are hosting some free Breyer Stablemates painting days in our retail shop over the next couple of weeks, in addition to a stock clearance running online and in the shop. Visitors to our shop will also have the chance to purchase items that do not appear on the website, including some secondhand models and ex-display pieces.
We would like to thank you for all of your support for Utterly Horses over the years and sharing with us your stories, pictures and passion from your own individual worlds of model horses. It has been incredible to be a part of it all. We have had many, many enjoyable years and now the time has come for us to write the last chapter of our Utterly Horses story, and to open the next book.
