Thanks everyone for the feedback - I'm glad so many found the little writeup interesting. My thanks, of course, to Susanne for starting the thread in the first place and supplying such good pictures of the models and their adornments! Also, I must note I didn't mean to hijack the thread - my post got a bit out of hand, swelling in length as I wrote.

You're one lucky woman to live so (relatively) near to all those glorious keurings and studs, trekpaard shows and riding competitions...! I tell you, I'd have a mind (if not the funds) to one day go tour the equestrian centrals of mainland Europe. From a Finnish point of view it seems you have all those magnificent and unusually historic breeds, events and large studs all bundled up closely neighbouring each other, even if in different countries.. The Friesians and sports horses of the Netherlands, the German and French heavy draughts, Lipizzans and Kladrubers and Koniks and Shagyas... It's downright unfair! Laughing

I'm glad you liked it! For a lot of info, reconstructions and links on the subject of equestrian culture in ancient times, check out [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] excellent blog - be warned, though, the place is a time warp. You'll emerge seven hours later with your intrigue none lessened.

We spend all time trying to save these figures, or because it is not impossible or because it is not as bad as in catalogue pictures. Honestly, I second what Ana's saying. I don't have anything against braided horses although I think that free manes and tails are characteristics that make horses look so beautiful. If Schleich was releasing a little number of braided horses it was acceptable but it is too much. This year, for me, the Frisian was enough once it is the only one I like the braids, alsoif it was the only braided, it would turn her somewhat special and now she is only one more among many of them.
I also think that some of these horses are really bad sculpts and braids work as a distracting thing.

I quite agree with Roger on the abundance of braids and gimmicks on the recent Schleich releases being a bit much. I also think the sculpts are pretty atrocious and the braids seem to be used to try and hide this. Still, now that we have all those braids, I suppose it couldn't hurt to take a closer look - even if not in their (or the afflicted models') defense entirely.

I'm a horserider and also a horselover and I prefer ''natural'' horses, I mean without braids... I have to admit brands has to make new ''things'' for getting some new figures... but they must investigate and make serious things...

For example, Andalusian mare. In Spain andalusian mares don't have this braids; they are usually with very short mains because they don't live in boxes (-usually in the field or mount-) as you can see here (''cobra'' of Yeguada Cárdenas -Fuego's owner-) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I do think braids are OK, but i only think they are if there is NO pink of other very ''loud'' color is used to make them more girly ore something. Ans i just can't help myself to tink they are doing a very bad paint job on the most braids (like the braids on teh haflinger mare in this topic) I almost can not buy horses from the stores here because of the bad paint jobs, i just want the perfect one and all of them seem to my like they are painted in a hurry!

Braiding on a model horse replica isn’t a new theme. Back in 1966 Britains released their plastic version of their Suffolk Mare and this featured a braided mane and tail. Has been stated above work horses in Britain have this done as part of tradition and for performing work.

Originally issued in hollow cast metal from 1946 to 1959. So this model has been around for a while.  Very Happy

Man, from the catalog pics I thought this one at least had potential... *grumble* I wish their sculptor knew how to sculpt something - anything - besides hair.  Evil or Very Mad

Thanks Chris, that is again a very interesting contribution. Curious that it is a Suffolk mare, the same breed Ana sculpted for Mojo being released this year. The figure is wonderful, I like a lot the volumes and proportions. Very Happy

Gorgeous Suffolk mare! Very Happy I have a book on draft horse showing that has a lot of great pics of the various braiding styles. Turns out there's a style for each breed, which is rather helpful for collectors when it comes to deciding whether a particular model should be shown as, say, a Shire or a Clyde.

Many thanks Carola, Jonas and Sumo.  Very Happy 

I too am amazed at the detail Britains put into their toy figures. Their sculptors were masters at getting the pose and details just right.

Please accept my apologies. I honestly thought that you have seen Britains' Suffolk Mare before. It is a fairly common model but perhaps my images were the first ones on STS?

I have just looked at some real Suffolk horses on the net and I agree that Britains colour combination is strange.

Hopefully, these images have inspired you to do a version with braided mane and tail. There are a number of images on the net that show this in detail.

You are so right. A horse with black mane/tail is NOT chestnut, it is bay  Laughing 

That is the phaenotype definition of a chestnut, - the mane/tail is never darker that the body.
Geneticly a chestnut is ee, which means " not-black". This means that black colour is as impossible as it is that she would grow a trunk  lol!

Chestnuts can have a mane and tail darker than their body colour; even still, it won't be black (even though it can [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] pretty [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) - it'll be just another shade of pheomelanin brown like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (scroll down a bit to the trotting Laramie) or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Dear Chris,
I don't see reason you should apologise me for. If I knew this figure earlier it would surely be one of my favourite Very Happy and probably would inspire me too. Now I'm thinking about some braids for my Suffolk mare, just to see if it suits her Very Happy

If I would say about inspiration for this Mojo mare other than Suffolks photos I would mention old Schleich chestnut draft mare, I like this figure very much. Very Happy

I'm not sure if it's first time when the model is shown on forum, but it must be first photo showing this figure individually here, probably. I think wild animals of Britains are more often to see on STS, farm animals we see only form time to time. And of course i didn't know Britains before I joined this forum (I think we've never had this company in Polish toy shops, except, of course Chinese  poor  copies )  Smile

Yes, I know normally chestnut don't have black mane but I mean maybe it was very very dark brown.
Also, I knew horse with black mane and tail would be bay but this figure has no black on legs as bay horse would. That's why I was thinking perhaps they showing horse of the colour like on Lea's photos (these I would say have probably very dark brown coloured mane and tail scratch)  Also I though chestnut because it's described as Suffolk Punch-they are only chestnut.

BTW, I wonder about so called sooty,  something like sooty chestnut horse would also have dozen of black hair?  study

Very interesting examples, thank you for sharing Lea! I wonder if Britains company wanted to show Suffolk in this shade of chestnut or they confused bay with chestnut  a bit?

Yes, many chestnuts have some dark chestnut hairs in the tail.

Those are bays  with silver mane/tail Wink

This one : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is silver dappeled black, it is certainly not a chestnut Wink


Anna, not all bays have black legs. And certainly not model horses  Laughing  They are called aguti bays..for some strange reason Very Happy

Ha, so now I'm very confused! :shock:I didn't know about bays without any black on legs, I heard only about some of them having less black than others (wild bay or something like that?) So this information is like "wow" for me! Very Happy 
Then this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is it "aguti bay" or chestnut with almost black mane? From all photos this one looks most similar to the Britains Suffolk  scratch
