Piebald farm cob for sale, several years old, likely from quite late in Annabel's era though since I got him secondhand I don't know exactly when he dates from. This is an older pic as it's currently too dark to take any new pictures but I have rehaired him using black and white mohair since this pic was taken so he no longer has the synthetic hair. I can try to get more pics of him tomorrow though if anyone wants them.
His condition is fairly good. His white has discoloured but it is generally quite even discolouration and probably gives him a bit more character than being pristine white anyway. Also I think the white mohair sits better with the off-white paint than the stark white synthetic hair did. He also has slight paint wear to his eartips but nothing that would be difficult to touch up and his leg paint cracks slightly when his legs are bent though as a chunky cob he's not actually that bendable anyway. He also has very slight pitting to the surface of his body as he must have been made from a mould that was wearing out before it was recast. He is very cute though and a sad sale but I'd like to make space and funds for other models.
He will have to be sent by courier since due to the covid 19 situation I can't really use royal mail at present so while I can probably send within Europe, I don't know what the price would be for that and I'd have to look into that further if necessary. I'm probably going to have to say unfortunately I can't ship outside Europe at this time, sorry. FARM COB NOW SOLD

I've also reluctantly decided to part with my liver chestnut/shaded chocolate brown Connemara, a special order from a few years ago. Has 4 white socks, a star and snip and chocolate brown hair. Hair has been very slightly trimmed. Great condition, he's never been played with. (Headcollar not included) SOLD

I've also still got my family horse Bramble for sale. Ex-catalogue dun family horse, I believe quite an early one from around the mid 1990s. She isn't really bendy, she's gone quite stiff with age but aside from that and some very slight paint wear she's in good condition.SOLD
And I have also decided reluctantly to part with my white family horse who I named Porcelain. I think she was a special order and is probably also from the early-mid 90s, she is a plain white model though she has discoloured a little with age so is now more off-white/cream coloured. Her colour is completely even and appears to be totally down to just age and not sun damage. Uncut mane and tail (which are synthetic but are the much nicer softer old white hair not the more recent stiffer hair) except her forelock seems to have possibly been slightly trimmed but it does hang down fine, it doesn't stick up. There's a tiny bit of glue discolouration in the very roots of her mane but it's not that noticeable. Also there's slight 'crazing' to her paint particularly when her legs are bent (she is still fairly bendy though) but nothing too bad. SOLD
