It's a bit daunting to think that we've re-homed over just over 3,400 model horses since Copperfox Model Horses officially launched it's first collection of models in March last year. I even had to redo my sums several times just to double check I hadn't multiplied the figures too many times! (Edit: as another interesting detail, we produced another 480 models in our original Kickstarter campaign back in 2014/2015. Can you tell I've been crunching numbers and doing our new Copperfox Archive?)
Sometimes we do have to sit back and review where we have been and what we have done to know where we're going- and wow, what an fact to reflect on! A little hip-hip-hooray for us! I know, 3 thousand and 400 model horses doesn't seem that many, especially when some model horse manufactures create one model in a run of 3,000 but for us, little ol' Copperfox with a team of 2 behind the helm, it's simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! That's a lot of hooves trotting and galloping all around the globe (13,600 to be exact!).
This little fact brings me to two things. Firstly, we do have selected models from our 2016 production run still available and ready to gallop to you! Copperfox Marble, D'Abernon Tiger Woods (Bailey), Copperfox Trifle and Copperfox Percival in Matt Finish are all here ready and waiting to go. Numbers are very low on both Marble and Bailey, with better stock of Percival and Trifle.
I wanted to let you know that if these models are on your wishlist, then now is the time to lasso one before they gallop out of stock. There is nothing worse than when a model you are hoping for goes out of stock! Simply click on the image below to be taken to the model's page on our website to see more pictures and read more about them.
Talking of available models, if you are based in the US, it might be an idea also to trot on over to Triple Mountain Model Horses, who are an official Copperfox Model Horses retailer. In addition to having the above models in stock, they also have Copperfox Loughnatousa Fabio, our handsome bay Irish Sports Horse. Just click on the image below to be taken to their website and to find out what goodies they have available (although this could be dangerous!).
Secondly, to answer the hot question at the moment, which is "when are new models being released?", there is a long answer and a short one. The short version is that new models are being released soon.
As to the longer version, there are two new colours due to be released in Late July/August. One on the Welsh Cob Mould and another on the Irish Sports Horse Mould. The factory is currently going through sampling at the moment and we hope to move onto the fun part of painting very soon. Then it's boxing and getting them them ready for their month long journey on the high water. I'll keep you all informed with news and pictures as soon as I have them.
So, exciting times are ahead, we're moving forward and I'm sure you'll LOVE the next two colours. It's going to be hard to choose between them both- and the different finish options! (suggestion... re-home all!)
