Profile: G1 Morgan Mare #5160

Regular Run Stablemate Assortment
#5160 Morgan Mare
1989-94


Many people still think Morgans only come in the standard black/chestnut/bay colour palette, but they actually can be found in a wide rainbow of horse colours - palomino included. This mare would make a lovely Morgan and an even better Foundation Morgan, but she would be fine as a Morgan x Quarter Horse or some other cross if you are so inclined.

Though my example of this model is rather alarmingly lemon, examples in more subdued tones do exist. As you can tell by the dates, the last few years of this run were produced in new plastic - I'm still on the lookout for one myself. This model was also part of the 1989 Sears Special Run #495600 "Stablemate Assortment", which was, of course, issued in the old plastic.
