Soooo.. I mentioned a few times that I would stop collecting. Well, it did not take too long before I could not resist to buy a model  Razz I was just looking around on facebook and I saw a few toyhorses up for sale. For only 1 euros!! I saw some Schleich there too, I had almost evey single one of them already, and then I saw her..

The brown hanoverian mare from 1995. And she looked so good! I could not leave this beauty there. Picked up my bankcard and yep, I bought her. She was in the mail today, and she looked even prettier! I'm in love with this charming oldie.  I love you







And with her white friend, which I own since I was about 7 or 8 years old!



In the end I payed like 4 euros for her with shipping. But oh, it was worth it! And still so cheap! I'm on a pink cloud right now. Hope I will have more luck like this to complete my collection of oldies. bounce

Thanks all! bounce Very Happy 
Haha, I could just not leave her! I'm not completely done with collecting, I'm still eager to finish the older models. Not really searching, but if I can do a bargain.. Why not?!

I see you stopped collecting expensive models and now you're collecting cheaper ones even if they're the same. Good idea. I love also to stop collecting. Laughing Congratulations, it is a beautiful horse. Very Happy

Congratulations with the lovely addition! I was very lucky myself with the same model a few years ago, when it was already retired, but I found it new (with the Schleich-S tag) in my local Schleich-S shop. Such a fine figurine ^^ And welcome back in the collector's life Very Happy

Haha, exactly Roger! Razz
I know Carola.. Ah.. Well, I decided to not buy any more new models. Because I have some more important stuff to spend my money on. Even now, so many lovely trips with my horses IRL that I have to pay and work for myself. These are extras. But whenever I can.. Why not? :) I just decided to calm down a bit with the collecting.

Thanks for all the lovely comments!

Congrats! To be honest, I don't think any of us would be able to stop collecting. Especially if a company makes something that has been in our wish lists for a long time.

Congratulations with your new mare! :) I have just registered on the forum yesterday, being an incidental Schleich collector... I had to comment on this thread, as she is the very first Schleich I ever got by someone else, and my third one overall... It can be sad sometimes, realising she is still one of the best 'pieces' in my collection, it shouldn't be like that with a brand... But then, I think a great part of her charm comes from her nostalgic value Very Happy
Also, congratulations on having "stopped" collecting Wink
