Fighting Stallion ~ Ponokah Eemetah (Yellow Zigzag and Tail Feathers Warpaint)
The Ponokah Eemetah series of Fighting Stallions was thought to have been Breyer's little inside joke... "How many times can we re-use the same model with the slightest change and have people keep buying them?" The answer, it appears, was eight. All of these models are dark chocolate blanket Appaloosas with slightly lighter muzzles and solid legs. In January of 1994, Breyer released two different warpaint versions. In July of 1994, they released two more versions. In 1995 they did the same thing in January and July, for a total of eight different warpaint versions in the series. Most collectors try to collect all eight (and we can assume that Breyer is still chuckling).
While no official names were given to the different patterns, this one, which we call the Yellow Zig-Zag with Tail Feathers, was only made from July - December of 1994.
This fellow is Near Mint with only tiny hoof edge rubs on the toes of all four feet. He has such a dark coat color that it's hard to tell where his black stockings end and his bay coat begins, and he doesn't have that greenish tint around the edges of his blanket that some ended up with- His whites are bright and he has tiny speckles around his Appy spots. He even comes with his original box and hang tag! Hang tag will be bagged and tucked behind the box insert for safe traveling.
Breyer Model #897
