Medusa, Willow Wind and The Icing certainly are.

Thanks, that's exciting to know  :)

Are there any good ID sites you recommend. The one I was looking at is missing a lot of photos

Sadly, many of the GC sites are mostly gone or falling further into disrepair.  :(

The Grand Champion ID site and Kicking Spur Stables are your best bet these days.

Here you go (finally) as promised:

I am pretty sure that these are Grand Champions:

Not sure about this one:

Or these 2 - the dark brown one neighs when you push its head down. I think the chestnut should do the same, but it doesn't.

The first picture is GCs. You've got the original black family stallion, the original sorrel family stallion, I think that's Magesty?, The original palomino family stallion and the original pinto family stallion. Any of the originals are hard to come by these days.

The rest of the pictures are not GCs.

^^ I think that one might be a Lanard going by the texture and the shading. GC's in that pose usually have textured bodies, to look like they are hairy, and the hoof shading is usually different to the legs. Check the branding on the mould to be sure though. GC's will say Empire or Marchon, as opposed to Lanard.

It is a GC orangepeachmango, it's a foal that came with a palomino family set. They were only available through the Sears catalogue. I'm failing to find a reference image online but I'm pretty sure that is her  :)

Neat, a MO! I feel kind of bad that she is going to waste with me, since I'm not a GC collector...
