PostSubject: My First Peter Stone DAH Model has Arrived!   Thu Jun 12, 2014 8:24 pm

After waiting almost 13 weeks, my first Design A Horse has finally arrived!

I was terrified I would get a mess of a horse compared to others that people were getting, but wow, my Arab is stunning! The only complaint I have with the Arab is that the tail isn't the same as the one pictured on the website, but I still like it. It was probably changed because it would have been difficult to paint under the tail, I would think.

Sorry for the poor photos, it's been raining here for days. If the rain ever stops Rolling Eyes I'll get better ones.

When I ordered him, there was a good sale, but there was a minimum purchase amount. So I ordered a chip to meet the total required for the discount.

The chip isn't great, but for how amazing the Arab came out, I can't complain.

The color came out differently than I expected, but he's still cute. When I unwrapped him he had bubble wrap or some kind of clear plastic stuck to the bottom of his tail. I couldn't get it all off, but it's better than it was I guess. They also forgot to add the diamond I asked for. He has rubs on his nostril, tip of the tail, and hind feet. The bottom of his feet aren't painted either. But the eyes are amazing, so that makes up for all the flaws.

Cross my fingers the other DAHs I have on order come out just as nice as the Arab! bounce

The DAH program is a special program that the Peter Stone Company has. You choose everything you want for your horse, and they make it for you. First you pick the body - it can be non-custom, without any resculpting, or custom, with factory customization, such as turned head, different mane/tail, moved legs, et cetera. Then you pick the color and markings for your horse. Finally, you pick gloss or matte finish. They offer special colors and bodies every now and then. The base price for a DAH is $60. If you get a custom body, it can be a lot more expensive. For example, the pinned ear pony is $20 extra, but the Toothy Pinned Ear Arabian is $240 extra! affraid Adding markings and/or dapples will make the price higher too. But you can still get a nice horse for $60+shipping. Smile The base price for a chip (stablemate scale) is $30. You can also do Pebbles, but they are the same price as the traditional scale models. Very Happy

So in short, you tell Stone (the company) how you want the horse to look, you pay for it, and they make it and send it to you cheers

I should mention, the chip is glossy and the Arab is matte, the camera didn't pick up the gloss too well with this cloudy weather No

Oooh  cyclops This is really cool!

Very beautiful Arabian, great that he turned out the way you wished.
So is he your dreamhorse or such?  Very Happy 

And you have more on order  bounce Looking very much forward to see them! i hope they arrive soon!  bounce 

It is a shame with the Chip with rubs and other flaws, and the plastic that was stuck on the tail.
That is just not good service, according to me. Stuff like that has to be perfect. A new special model ordered shall not have rubs and lack of paintwork, (such as under the hooves).

But most important was ofcourse the Arabian, and he is stunning Very Happy Although the tail was not he correct one. That is also not a good service I think  Neutral Unless ofcourse they have notified you about the change.

I suspect he'll become a Live Show model?

By the way, can one just order from their StonePonys website?

Thank you all! cheers

Carola, the Stone company is well known for problems with paintwork, service, customizing... pretty much everything. It is unfortunate, as Peter's business practices were "get the money, no matter what." Peter is now getting up in years and has stepped back from the picture, allowing Randy to manage the business. (Randy is a grandson of someone, don't remember the whole story) Randy seems to be doing better, and is trying to pull the company out of the hole Peter has dug them into. We're all crossing our fingers he can save it, as he seems to have more logic than Peter. But has Peter Stone Horses already fallen too far? We hope not, no one wants to see them go under. But if they keep putting out poor quality work then no one will buy. Something needs to be done.

On a brighter note, yes, he's a bit of a "dreamhorse" of some sort. I had admired the body from when I had seen it on the site first, and wanted to do it in bay. But the regular "bay" color was coming out very red, unrealistically red. So I took a gamble and went with the "dark bay" color instead to avoid getting a red horse. I'm so glad I did! I was worried he would look boring because I didn't add any leg markings, but I really like him without the socks/stockings. The little snip and star are all he needs cheers When I do get more photos (yep, still raining Razz ), I can get shots of his nose - he even has pinking where the snip is! So cute!



Yes, you can go on the stoneponys.com website and order a DAH, just be aware the website is absolutely NOT user-friendly. And you'd be in for a loooooong wait. Also international shipping is very expensive. I don't want to try to discourage you, just warning you on first-time "DAH orderers" are mumbling about Wink If you decide to take the plunge and can't figure out the site, just shoot me a PM and I can help cheers

About the tail, I'm not really too bothered by it - I think I like this better than the picture of the one on the website.

This is the "prototype" horse:

Mine has more windblown action I think.

Congrats! He's gorgeous Shocked  If only other companies like Safari Ltd., CollectA etc. had something like this. But not just for horses. What about cats, dogs or even wild animals? I'm saying this because not all of us are as talented in customizing figures.

Leeann, I enjoy that you bring to us these topics about the obscure New World figures! Wink You give a "Blabistic" fragrance to this forum what I really enjoy! cheers
Now your horses! Shocked Shocked That Arabian shows the pure proudness of that breed and it is full of elegance. Beautiful is a too simple word to describe it! cheers
I assume I enjoy the concept of the brand and I believe soon or later any of the major brands will follow a similar project. scratch
I also suspect that Carola is currently trying to find a body of a draft horse, asking for some braids with pink bows in a white/grey color body and a proeminent yellow beard. Wink Very Happy Pure divining power from me! Laughing

Thank you very much for interesting information  Very Happy I really hope that Randy will improve the company. No reason to let so much potential go down! 
I Will have to save up for a bit, if to get any DAH. But I will not deny to do it one day Wink

 Laughing Laughing Laughing  You are absolutely right, Roger. I'd most definitely design something like that  Wink And that's actually not said as fun. Although I think their Drafter is kind of a Stallion? Unless ofcourse I can chose  Smile

The standing drafter (non-CMed) is a mare and I believe the trotting drafter is as well.

Okay, so it seems the trotting drafter is a male, as this CM body is a mare: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And this one is a mare too:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]





So looking at the CM bodies, the non-CM trotting drafter is a stallion, and the non-CM standing drafter is a mare. Very Happy  You could probably do the non-CM standing drafter in chestnut going grey. The M/T will come out more red than yellow but that's what is more realistic anyway. Very Happy

Here's the chestnut going grey on a pony (with added dapples):
