IHC and Walthers are only showing two models in there catalogs, and I've had a few sets of IHC horses on backorder for months.
Very few Faller models listed, either.

Despatch Junction train shop in East Rochester, NY had a bunch of IHC MGR horses in stock a few weeks back. $2.69 a package, I think.

Their website is offline at present.
phone # is 585-385-5570.

All these model railroad companies are the same. The product will dry up for a while before the manufacturer starts to make them again. Also, sometimes one manufacturer may buy the molds and start producing the models under their own label. There are several structures in HO scale that have had multiple manufacturers but it is the same structure. We will have to wait and see. What would be nice is if they started making some more different models but I am not holding my breath on that one. When the carnival models first came out they were really popular but unless you were an enthusiest like we are, after you have a merry go round, ferris wheel, swinger, and sky wheel what else do you really need and what else do you really have the room for.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.
