I have 2 ponies that were purchased approx. 20 year ago. Kindred Spirits and Route 66 Never been displayed or taken out of the box Would they have some Value now?
Response From Trailmaster:
I would certainly think so. Go on eBay and see if there are any other of these Ponies for sale, what their edition number is and what they are priced at. That should give you a good indication of their current market value.

If I order now will it arrive before Christmas
Response From Trailmaster:
Yes, but you must act promptly. The longer you wait, the more expensive shipping costs will be.

Are retired painted ponies worth more if you still have boxes for them.
Response From Trailmaster:
Yes, retirement is one of those factors that serious collectors take into consideration when trying to determine the value of a collectible like Painted Pony figurines. It goes back to supply and demand. If no more of something is being made, then what's already been made goes up in perceived value.

Can you tell me who sculpted the mold that is the base for Native Paint, Eagle Spirit, Unicorn Magic, Legend of the Blue Horse, and a few others. I know the artist varies but who initially sculpted this model horse. Thank you so much for your time.
Response From Trailmaster:
Kathleen Moody, a notable equine sculptor who lives in Phoenix.

When will the paint your own horses be back in stock? I’m really wanting to get the triumphant horse to paint.
Response From Trailmaster:
I wish we could give you more encouraging news about Paint Your Own Pony kits. Unfortunately, for reasons I won't go into, they became prohibitively expensive to produce - which means their cost to consumers would be prohibitively high too. We just haven't been comfortable proceeding until costs come down.

Susan from Alberta Canada wrote on December 01, 2021:
Do any of your painted ponies (reg sized) have sheep or goats on them? I see the nativity has a sheep, am wondering if any have multiple or assorted animals? Thinking along lines of a sheep herding design?
Response From Trailmaster:
Currently we do not have a Painted Pony design that features sheep or goats.

could you explain the numbering on the bottom of sounds of thunder, retired. 4E/0774. the 0774 is hand wrtitten. westland 2007 trail of tears. thank you.
Response From Trailmaster:
The first number before the "E" refers to the edition number. There are 10,000 figurines per edition. The second, hand-written number is the unique number of a figurine in that particular edition. A figurine with an edition number of 4E/0774 would be in the 4th Edition, number 774 out of 10,000.
