1988-1990

 

 

Introducing the horses of 1988 to 1990.

 

These were the first horses ever released (though some areas in the United States didn't have the opportunity to see them in stores).  But it was still, an awesome time period for the "Grand Champions" horses.

 

 

During this time, the company made different categories of horses, these categories are:  mares, foals, stallions, mares and foals, families, horse and rider, sound horses, and a stable set.

The horses here wasn't released very long in stores; which made it very hard to add them to your collection.  If you see them on EBay or anywhere else, you're very lucky!!

 

It was one of those years where you see the horses, than you don't.  The horses didn't have any fancy markings, accessories, or even bio cards.  They didn't even have the GC brand on their rumps (which was added later).  (which on the back was displayed in various poses), and each came with a brush, and a plastic food bin.  The horses were cast from a single color of plastic and had only basic markings - socks, blazes; and their bodes were not shaded with airbrushing.

 

To get the above image, you simply cut out the fence on the package, than slip it into the slot on the food bin.

 

Single foals were also released in Canada which had long hair!
