Is hop a long available
Response From Trailmaster:
Hopalong was a winning design submission that would be particularly appropriate as a gift at Easter. But no, it has not been crafted as a figurine. Yet

Jen from Spokane wrote on April 08, 2019:
I have a pony with no number and heard that is is one of the very first ponies made. Is that correct? Is there a way to find out the value? Perfect condition in the box.
Response From Trailmaster:
To answer this question we would need more information, beginning with the name of the Pony.

I have a very large collection of first edition and retired painted ponies in original boxes. What is the best way to proceed in selling them? Individually or by collections?
Response From Trailmaster:
Probably individually. And once you have decided on pricing, please let us know. Sometimes we are interested in first edition Ponies.

I have a retired figurine---Cowgirl Cadillac. How do I determine its value if I wish to sell it?
Response From Trailmaster:
There is no fixed way of knowing its value. It depends on its condition, its edition number, if you have the original box it came in. Then, it depends on how badly a collector wants to add this figurine to his/her collection. The best way to determine its current value in the marketplace is to check on eBay for a comparable piece.

Is the horse of a different color a c1Aollectible to and is the value comparable,
Response From Trailmaster:
If you are referring to the Horse of a Different Color line of Painted horses that was created by Westland Giftware - check the underside of the base for this information - these are not Trail of Painted Ponies figurines and their current value does not compare.

I would like to sell my painted pony to a serious collector. Do you offer third-party sales on your site.
Response From Trailmaster:
We do not. We looked into it but found it to be more complex than we initially thought. EBay is still your best option.
