Profile: G1 Arabian Mare #5911

Regular Run Stablemate Assortment
#5911 Arabian
1998


This run is generally referred to as being 'red roan', but the lack of a dark head makes flea-bitten grey a more realistic colour assignment. There were only three G1 molds released in the 1998 Stablemate assortment - this mare, a Saddlebred, and a Quarter Horse Stallion. All three were discontinued at the end of the year and replaced by G2 models in unrelated colours.

  1. I have a copy of this little girl (although quite a bit paler), she's one of my favourite SMs :)

  2. You think 5911 is her individual number? Both IYB and Model Equus mention 5011, which could very well be wrong, since it's the same as the old dappled grey's. I'm only sure of the complete 1998 singles series number, 5901.

    1. It was possible the typo came from Browell and was perpetuated by those using the book as reference (not the first time), but after some asking around and learning that the packaging did not include the individual model numbers, I'm going to call the typo as being on my end. Thank you very much for the heads up!
