Some model horse collectors,
especially those who like to show their models, like to create a pedigree
for their horses similar to those of "real" horses. Some make up fictitious
sires and dams, while others use the names of other model horses. If you
would like to use another collector's model horse as a sire or dam for one
of your, be sure to get permission first!
