Copperfox's first horse mold (the other early models all being ponies) is the Irish Sport Horse. Tall, athletic and focused, he was sculpted by the incredible Morgen Kilbourn. The details on this guy are incredible, from rippling muscles, to flared nostrils, to neck wrinkles, he is all athlete. Irish Sport Horses are even the trusted breed used for the Queen's Household Cavalry! Standing 12" tall to his eartips and a full 18" long, he commands attention wherever he goes. Here's what Becky had to say about this mold:
The Irish Sports Horse, or King Horse as he is known at the factory, is the bold one of the bunch, with a heart of a lion and the courage to leap over a giant cross-country fence. Like his real life counterparts, he is intelligent, kind but a little mischievous if not channeled into something. This mould, like the Connemara Pony, excels in Performance classes, especially if there is a jump involved!
This handsome bay - even more gorgeous in person, where his subtle shading shows better than in photos - a portrait of Irish Sport Horse Loughnatousa (Luff-nuh-too’-suh) Fabio, so yes, he needed a nickname. He earned it while he was first learning to free-jump: Whenever he jumped, he lifted his forelegs so high, bystanders said he reminded them of the cartoon Superman leaping into the air to fly away! Superman is competing at events in Europe, and making a splash everywhere he goes.
