Profile: G1 Native Dancer #5178

Regular Run Stablemate Assortment
#5178 Appaloosa
1995-97



This was the first of two Native Dancer models with appaloosa markings, the second being a black special run. Two main variations exist: the earlier issue with fairly tidy brown spots and blanket, and the later issue with a fuzzier blanket and more sloppy, orange-toned spots.

Being a portrait mold of a Thoroughbred makes this model a little light for a stock-bred Appaloosa, though it would be a nice racing-fit race bred young mare or gelding. There are also a range of lighter sport-type breeds with appaloosa markings, and of course, there's no shame in being a part-bred.
