I voted for farm life, which can of course include horses, but it's your collection. You might prefer another category, such as Asia, Australia, Europe or America, but from what I've seen of Schleich and other modern brands on here (I only collect vintage) I think Arctic/Antarctic and Ocean animals are a bit limited and don't look as good in a display as land animals such as deer and antelope from whichever continent. Just me, but I don't like many pet figures - just too cutesy and twee for me - I'm sure my blood sugar levels go into overload just looking at photos of them. No

So for an alternative suggestion for broadening your collection, how about ungulates (hoofed animals) generally, which of course includes horses, deer, antelopes, goats, pigs and sheep - in these cases domestic or wild - I've seen some excellent models of wild boar and related species for example. Perhaps buy a few models on a broad range for a while, and then specialise a bit to complete sets within the ungulate range which appeal to you most once you actually own a few examples. As has been said in other threads, collections can take many forms, and one of those forms includes concentrating on particular series by a single brand, but also having a few related others. By this I mean, if you imagine a core collection of (say) Schleich horses, the 'others' might include some favourite horse breed models by other manufacturers, and some Schleich models of other species.

I voted Asia only because I think you'll collect them all. So, if you're completing Africa, the next step has to be Asia once it is clearly the most remarkable fauna after African. Very Happy Though, if you won't collect them all and considering you are in a birds wave, I recomend America. You have macaws, eagle and eaglets and some of European birds can fit perfectly there like the gull or puffin.
Another recomendation is, believing you won't collect all figures of a certain fauna since their begining, that instead of collecting those you see in a certain catalogue or group of catalogues, it is much nicer and representative if you collect the last generations of different species. For example, supposing you will start with Asia, you have around 20 tigers to collect, instead of collecting them all, you collect the last family of tigers only. With this concept American collection turns really interesting once you can try to find some retired figures to enrich the diversity. You collect the last American bison and calf, current or previous family of white tailed deers, current jaguar and cub, current grizzlies, eagle and eaglets, racoons, skunk, current macaws, beaver, current wolves...
then you can try to find some retired figures like wolverine, armadillo, anteater, puma, etc. Black bears won't be a problem. Wink
But the last choice is always yours. flower

Robert, that's what I do but remember Emma only wants to collect Schleich. Unless you are referring to the fact that current grizzlies are probably not as good as previous? scratch

Yes, that's what I mean with the last generation, surely Emma wants to collect families, so if she gets the white-tails, she only need a buck, a doe and a fawn, I guess.
By the way, I created a quick list to see which species (Schleich sized) we loose from American fauna if we don't collect Mojo, Safari or CollectA! affraid
Brazilian tapirs
Southern tamandua
Linnaeus' two-toed sloth
Pronghorn
Elk
Black fox*
Peccary
Gila monster
White buffalo*
Black wolf*
Arctic wolf*
Opossum#
Coyotes
Greater roadrunner
Hare
Bighorn ram
River otter#
American badger#
Gray squirrel#
Bobcat
American alligator
Barn owl
Anhinga
Mandarin duck
American flamingo
American white pelican
Brown pelican
Green-checked amazon parrot
Green-wingged macaw
Keel-billed toucan
Hyacinth Macaw
Great horned owl
California condor
Capybara
Diamondback Rattlesnake
Red-faced spider monkey
White alligator*
Maned wolf
Baird's tapir
Green anaconda

* Subspecies or "mutations"
# Somewhat large for Schleich Laughing

I did it too fast, I am sure I am missing some and I am not counting Bullyland, Papo or Maia & Borges.

This is very interesting Very Happy bounce I have set myself limitations so that I am not getting all of them which would be immpossible drunken So my African collection is limited to the 2010 catalogue onwards and I don't have any of the oldies. I think that maybe later on I will get some of the oldies that I like, but for now I am content with the ones that I have.
Getting other brands would be extremely difficult for me as my local store only has schleich Shocked Which is why I can never be tempted towards other brands, I enjoy seeing them on here, but I am still overly fond of schleich Very Happy Which is good because I don't think that my budget would handle all those other brands aswell Laughing Thanks for the suggestions, I will see where the voting goes, I won't mind which one is picked, I have no preferance Laughing

He is looking for the african black rhino male, but also keeping an eye out for one of the dromedaries. We are doing a trade as he collects postcards of churches from different countries Very Happy

Apparently you should collect the same number of animals from each category as the number of votes given for it. For example, currently, five from Asia/Australia, two from the Artic/Antartica, etc, etc, one dog and one pet that is not a dog...

And your brother apparently really wants smurfs for his birthday.
