At first, RD continued to release these horses with the Beswick backstamp.During this period, Royal Doulton added new horses to the Beswick line with the Beswick backstamp; they also decided to market the Beswick Spirit Horse line and discontinued many of the nicer Beswicks.); many of the Beswick horses were then discontinued once the RD backstamp was used.Royal Doulton has since come out with new horses not part of the original Beswick line.The book also includes photos of all the various colorways the horses came in. This writeup was provided by Laura Pervier The Beswick Quarterly site and Beswick Collector sites are defunct.January 2008 update via Kim Mason: Beswick have now been bought by a gentleman called John Sinclair in Sheffield.
