I am quite pleased with the end result, given how fiddly it was, and how detailed. I especially love the feathers, but the mane extension is nice too.

WOW! What a great job cheers 

I am still not quite used to seing Friesians so light. When I was young they were quite heavy horses, but things change, and you made a wonderful moden type Friese Applause

I'd say he's too light even for a modern type Friesien, looks more like e.g. an Arabo-Friesian Wink He's still very nice, though!

Beautiful remake! Congratulations! cheers
In the riding club where I ride there is 12 Friesians and most of them are indeed similar "weight" to warmbloods, some even lighter types affraid (but wow these lightest ones have the most amazing high action of legs) Only one or two are a bit heavier, maybe in the same "body mass" as Tinkers. But the heads of Friesians are almost always very long and narrow with specific shapes of nostrils, nothing near the warmblood horses heads. Obviously in the Stablemates scale it almost impossible to see these differences Laughing
I think your work is beautiful! Great Friesian horse! cheers

I don't think it is too light! Actually it looks dark enough! Laughing
Seriously, I like the work and we are used to see most horse figures looking heavier than they're in real. Breyer is the exception so it fits nicely with Breyer standards. Maybe a little light even considering it can be a Sports Friesian but the final figure looks really great! Very Happy

Thank you all for your comments - I certainly appreciate the feedback!

In terms of light-versus-heaviness...

I do not profess to be a horse expert, but let's just say that I simply looked at the model, and a photo of a Freisian, 
(it was this one, to be specific: [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])


and it clicked. I thought it might make a nice heavy horse but realised hpow much time it would take ( Shocked Shocked ) to simply rebuild the entire horse - legs, body, etc... and decided against it. That is why, perhaps, this model lends towards the lighter type - perhaps we can call him a Friesian type Warmblood? After all, I must admit, I am so used to Friesians here in Australia - and these are not, heavy, furry horses - but indeed light and swift, often mixed, I'd imagine, with some hotblooded horse.
Some are heavy, but the performance ones aren't usually.
More like this:

I think the biggest difference between my model and both would have to be thickness of neck. Oh well. I'll try better next time.
As it is, horses aren't really my thing, but I'm trying to practise my skills for comissions of all animals - what better place to start. 

If I was making one from scratch, I think I'd be considerably more careful and finicky. Hah!

Roger, you never cease to amuse! Wink Wink Razz Laughing

For me this is the essence of whole fun with customizing models - basically, using OF models as "skeletons" for creating something completely new Smile
I haven't started customizing yet, but I read a lot about it, and basically every experienced customizing artist recommends using and analysing lots of reference photos. So I basically save every useful/interesting equine photo I stumble upon - who knows, maybe it will come to use one day What a Face (I also hoard them on my Pinterest profile)

Don't worry, I'm not against the idea of spending time on customs. It was merely that, this week, combined with studies and farmwork, the only allotted time I had didn't cover resculpting the model. And it is a nice model, too.
I could have put it away for another day, but I will always buy another the same, and have another go.

Anyhow. What better way to get better than practise?

I too have a computer storage of clips and photos...in case of the dreadful day I am ever without internet! Shocked Shocked

Its stunning, I cannot believe some of the things you see in a model, and then you make it even better. Great job.
I am also accustomed to seeing heavier bulk to Friesians, however the thinner modern versions are still very pretty and graceful looking. drunken
