How To Search on StoneHorseRef:
Molds: This is a drop down list of all the molds and customizations. For example, you want to search on all models with a unicorn customization - just click on ‘Unicorn’ and all models that have been made into Unicorns will show up. Other favorite customizations include the ‘Antlers or Reindeer’, ‘Marwari/Kathiawari’ or the ‘Pegasus (Bat Wings)’. Also in this drop down you can search on ‘Manuals/Catalogs’ and ‘Equilith Magazines’.
Model Number: If you know this number you can type it in here.
Years Produced: If you know the year your model was released, just use the drop down box to select that year.
Model Name: Type in one word to narrow down your results if you know the Original Model Name (Show Names are not used, unless that is the only name ever associated with that model).
Color: This is a drop down box of many colors! Sometimes, however, it is difficult to tell what color a model is by a picture, or maybe the model was advertised as one color, but looks like something different in person. You may have to try searching on colors that could resemble each other. For example, a chestnut color can resemble a sooty palomino on a model. You may have to search under both colors to find your model.
No. Produced: This field contains the information on how many of a specific model was released (if known). To search for a OOAK, select ‘Is Equal To’ and type in a ‘1’. If you want to see models that are NOT OOAK’s, select ‘Is Not Equal To’ and type in a ‘1’. If the number produced is not known, and you want to use this search, click on ‘Is Greater Than Or Equal To’ and type in ‘0’. You do not have to use this search field - the default is to include all models.
Artist: This field contains a list of known painters who have painted models at the Stone factory. This list is evolving, but if you see a painter who is missing, please let me know. If an Artist designed a model, but not necessarily painted it, they will still be listed as the artist. This field also contains the artist that originally sculpted the model.
Customizer: This field contains a list of known customizers at the Stone factory. I realize that sometimes a customizer might only create a prototype for a run, but does not customize the entire run. I will try to include this information about a model, if it is known. Otherwise, this field will apply to those models where one customizer has done all the work.
Customized: If a model has had any customization work to it, then this field will apply. Please note, this field was new August 2021, so all models going forward will have this information. It will take some time to add this feature to the rest of the database.
Type of Run: This field helps to narrow down what type of run a model was produced as. For example, to see a list of Judges models produced, just click 'Judges Model' in the drop down box and press Search. Or maybe you are looking for models that were released as ’T-Shirt Models’.
Model Horse Shows: This field contains many shows where types of models like judges models, and trophy models were provided. I have included many shows; however some of the smaller, or one-off shows can be found in ‘Misc Shows’. Click on 'Equilocity' to see many of the models released for the yearly Equilocity horse show.
Series: This field contains information based on the many series and programs from the Stone Company over the years. For example, you can choose the option 'Design A Horse' from the drop down box to see many of the Design A Horse models produced. Or maybe you want to see what all of the ‘Artisan Hall Series’ models are.
Size: This field gives you the option of choosing between Traditional, Pebbles, Chips, and Micro Mini sizes.
