Name Origin: The first release of this mold was in the Challengers Mesteno & Sombra set. Mesteno was challenged by a grullo bachelor stallion, Sombra, for his herd. This is Mesteno, fighting... Fighting Mesteno.

The Fighting Mesteno and the Sombra are almost the same mold, but look at that right hind hoof. The Sombra has a cocked right hind foot and Mesteno stands square.
