I support Copperfox Model Horses!

As many of you will have already seen from Becky's post on Utterly Horses, due to the creation of her own model horse company, Copperfox, Breyer have refused to stock her with any of their models as they see Copperfox - a company so small and new that they haven't even launched yet - as a direct competitor.

While I can understand their point of view on the one hand, pulling all their products from the UK's most well known and respected retailer of model horses, and without any discussion of a compromise, is exceedingly childish and has really made me lose respect for them as a company.
I will still buy the odd Breyer if it catches my eye, but secondhand if possible, as I don't want to support a company that resorts to blackmail like that.

As one of the Founding Foxes, I look forward to receiving my two Copperfox models next month and will continue to support the brand, as it's about time we got some accurate British breeds and hopefully, without the 'big company' attitude!

Becky gave me the go-ahead to post this little badge I made, in case anyone wants one to put on their website or forum sig/avatar :)

  1. Wow, this is incredible news :o I totally support Becky, UtterlyHorses and Copperfox!

  2. I added the avatar to my blog as well! I really don't like how Breyer is acting! I mean CopperFox Model Horses didn't even start yet!
