Subscribers will receive a brand new micro mini every month plus a FREE special exclusive model at the end of every 12 months. You may join any time, and will begin receiving micros with the following month's release.
The exclusive micro you receive will be the one corresponding with the calendar year in which you signed up.
This will be handled through PayPal's subscription service, which many of you are already familiar with as the automatic time payment option on some of my bigger horses.
The micros are all new original sculptures and will be available to the general public no sooner than one month after they're sent out to subscribers (they'll cost more, then, as well).
The cost for Maggie's Monthly Metal Micro Mini is now $35 per month plus shipping. PayPal will automatically debit a recurring payment on or about the same date every month.

Please scroll down to read my FAQ--if you still have any questions please feel free to email me!
Do I have to subscribe for a full year? What if I need to cancel?
While the only subscription offered is a continuous subscription, I understand that sometimes life gets in the way. If you need to cancel your subscription at any time you may do so. However, subscriptions that are canceled or suspended will not be eligible for the free exclusive model until 12 consecutive monthly payments have been made.
Can you ship my models to a different address?
It's much easier for me to ship all your subscription models to the same address, however, if you need to change your address for any reason please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I just paid. When will my first horse come?
Your subscription begins the first day of the calendar month following your purchase date. Thus, if you purchased January 29, 2017, your first micro mini would arrive in February 2017 and the twelfth micro of your subscription as well as your bonus micro would arrive January 2018. If you purchased May 1, 2017, your first micro mini would arrive in June 2017.
Which resins will I get if I subscribe partway through the year?
You will receive the model corresponding to the month following your initial subscription, and then each month after that until you cancel your subscription. You will not receive the micro minis from months previous to your subscription beginning--although those horses will be available for purchase eventually!
How much will the resins cost to non-subscribers?
Each micro will be available no sooner than one month after that sculpture ships out to subscribers. The price will be higher than the subscription price, and will generally be in the $40 range. Some pieces may be more expensive.
Will you be producing these sculptures in pewter?
Starting in November 2018 I am offering new sculptures in both pewter and resin!
Are they fragile?
Yes. These are small and have thin legs. They are not toys and should be handled with care.
How is the black resin different? Can I paint it?
The black resin is harder and stronger than the standard white resin. You can prep and paint it just the same, although it is slightly more brittle due to its much greater hardness and strength. Starting in October 2018, Monthly Micros are cast in white resin (dyed various colors) which is somewhat softer and more resilient. Starting in November 2018, a matching subscription in pewter is also available.
What if my horse arrives broken?
If your horse arrives broken, please contact me immediately so I can replace it.
Can I customize my micros?
Absolutely! You may modify them in any way you like. However, you may not mold, cast, or otherwise reproduce the result.
What's next month's horse?
It's a surprise! Subscribe to find out!
How are you making sure you have horses ready in time?
As I started the program, I made sure to have at least nine month's worth of horses ready. Then, I only need to sculpt one new micro a month to stay well ahead of the subscriptions!
How many subscriptions are available?
Subscriptions for resin Monthly Micro Minis are limited to less than 150 subscriptions. Subscriptions for pewter micro minis are currently unlimited in number.
Can I have multiple subscriptions?
Sure! Go for it! :-)
Is there a discount on postage if I have multiple subscriptions going to the same address?
Not at this time. If there's enough demand I can set this up, but it complicates my shipping process.
Can I get other micro minis shipped for free with my subscription horse?
No. Subscriptions ship all at once each month, therefore I cannot combine shipping in general.
Will you be making a Thoroughbred/Clydesdale/Shetland/my favorite breed?
Maybe! If you'd really like to see something you can let me know, but no promises on what will be coming.
When will this month's horses ship?
Typically horses ship in the third or fourth week of the month. This may mean that you receive your horse in the following month. We're trying to work towards shipping a bit earlier though!
