More Julip H - horses

Next up is the HORSE IN ACTION, a generic horse not too unlike the Heavy Hunter.  This model had been around since the 1950s and was discontinued about 1983.
This model is from 1981 and he came to me new from Julip as a Christmas present.

The Horse Of The Year series of plastic Julips first mould was of an Arab. Eventually the mould was used to create a latex version, which goes by the title of HOTY ARAB.  This is still available today.
And finally in H is the HUNTER.  This has been around for many years and is still going! Below is my first Hunter model, which was actually the very first Julip I had new, back in 1979.
He has yellowed a bit with age. This is something that can't be helped if your models live out on shelves as mine do. Keeping them rugged does prevent the body discolouring, but grey horses are prone to this!
