Copperfox Sneak Peek ~ Trifle!

This little pony will surprise you by how quickly she captures your heart when you see her in person!  Here's what Becky had to say about the little Exmoor Pony: The Exmoor Pony, sculpted by Harriet Knibbs, is a pony that doesn’t conform and I love that about her. She is a roly-pony pony who knows her own mind and does her own thing. She is one that hates being photographed but in person she is the loveliest model you could ever own. Many collectors don’t like this model or at least don’t think they do until they see and...

Copperfox Sneak Peek ~ Percival!

Percival, or Percy, as he's called is a magnificent dapple grey on Kelly Sealey's Welsh Cob mold.  Here's what Becky had to say about this mold: The Welsh Cob is a very handsome fellow who knows it. He is the peacock of the showring and one that would shout “look at me!”. This mould looks wonderful in any colour; even in plain, unpainted white, he looks gorgeous. His face is so expressive, even if it does have that look of “butter wouldn’t melt”! When Kelly was sculpting Celtic Warrior, many people actually saw this model at our UH Hullaballoo back...

This lovely sculpt depicts the Connemara Pony, native to Ireland.  Due to contracts with other brands, the sculptor's name can't be published, but she is prolific in the animal sculpting world, renowned for her amazingly realistic portrayals of horses, as well as other animals and birds.  This sculpt is no exception - This beautiful galloping Connemara appears to have been taken straight out of the breed's conformation guide! Those of you who know the Connemara breed are probably already starting to type me an email saying that only solid colored horses can be registered as Connemaras.  True!  This particular release...

Copperfox Sneak Peak ~ Bailey!

The Welsh Cob mold was sculpted by Kelly Sealey of Kelly’s Studio.  He is a rugged stallion with an arched neck and the naturally high action Welsh Cobs are known for.  He is really moving out in a flying trot, with only two feet touching the ground, yet he stands securely with the use of a clear acrylic peg. As a sweet little detail in respect to his Celtic heritage, the Welsh Cob has a tiny braid behind his right ear.   This release is a lovely portrait of Welsh Cob stallion D’Abernon Tiger Woods.  Known as Bailey around the...

Interview with Becky Benfield of Copperfox Model Horses

With Copperfox Model Horses making their U.S. Debut at Triple Mountain, Eleda sat down with Becky Benfield, CEO of Copperfox Model Horses, to talk about their line of models and her work in bringing them to life.  We're very excited by the opportunity to be the first dealer to bring this realistic line of models to customers in North America and to watch the line (or range, as they're called in the UK), grow. Becky is a fascinating person who has built her brand guided by her morals and her love of horses, rather than focusing on the bottom line. ...
