What is the difference between your standard ponies and the higher priced ones?
Response From Trailmaster:
The main difference is the edition number. The higher priced ones are a lower edition number.

bonjour ,je possede un poney et j aimerais le vendre , mais je ne l ai pas trouvé dans votre collection pour savoir a quel prix je peux le mettre. je peux vous envoyer les photos. merci
Response From Trailmaster:
Les collectionneurs qui choisissent de revendre leurs figurines Painted Ponies le font généralement sur eBay, où il existe un marché secondaire. La meilleure façon de trouver la valeur perçue actuelle de votre collection Painted Ponies est de rechercher sur eBay les mêmes figurines avec des numéros d'édition similaires. Si vous avez un compte eBay, vous pouvez en fait rechercher le prix d'une figurine particulière vendue récemment, ce qui donnera une valeur perçue encore plus précise.

I would like to know where i can get a list of the Masterpiece. Horses
Response From Trailmaster:
There was only one Pony that was created as a Masterpiece, and that was "War Cry." There were twelve 9" figurines created, and they are: Dream Warrior, Fancy Dancer, Year of the Horse, Medicine Horse, Woodland Hunter, Fetish Pony, Tewa Horse, Happy Trails, Ghost Horse, War Pony and Quarterhorse.

Are the original life size ponies still on display and if so, where?
Response From Trailmaster:
Approximately 120 life-size Painted Ponies were created as part of the original public art project, and most of them were auctioned off so they are no longer "corralled" in one place. in retrospect, we wish we had reserved a group for public display in one place.

When will the next new pony, the spring and summer winners 2022?
Response From Trailmaster:
Because of shipping delays experienced by every business in 2021, the Summer 2021 Release is just now arriving at our official store. We won't be announcing the Summer 2022 Release until July.

I bought a few painted ponies years ago when a boutique was going out of business. They were the first of my collection. They are unstamped on the bottom. Totally blank. Mosaic Appaloosa is one of them. Is it because they were given to the store as samples? Are they more valuable or less valuable than those that are marked with Editions? Thank you for any information you can give me. I could send pics if you like.
Response From Trailmaster:
There are several possible explanations for why the Ponies you have are unstamped on the bottom, the most likely being that they were given to a sales rep as samples to show to retailers, not sell, but somehow were sold anyway. Although this makes them anomalies, it doesn't necessarily make them more valuable.

Is there somewhere I can sell my ponies other than Ebay?
Response From Trailmaster:
The only place other than eBay that we know of where you can sell your Ponies is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PaintedPoniessellbuyswapauction/ We do not, however, monitor this site.

What was the earlier material used in making the ponies? What material is used now? Does the feel/ look same for different materials.
Response From Trailmaster:
When Trail of Painted Ponies figurines first hit the market in 2003, some were cast in resin and some in porcelain. As the designs we decided to work with became more complex and dimensional, we discontinued with porcelain and now cast exclusively in resin.
