Today I received a package from England, from our Harriet. Inside this package I found beautiful model of horse, magnificent and amazing Achille!!! I love you As many of you know he's Percheron stallion model in scale around 1:30 (like Stablemates in Breyer) And he is wonderfully detailed, very beautiful and I really think he's the best horse figure in my collection cheers  
Photos cannot show the tiny details on his skin, it's so amazing  sunny cheers



I will soon start painting him and I think I decided for silver bay colour for him. Something like on this picture Wink



I know pure Percheron's in this colour probably don't exist but he could be cross breed then Smile

I'm so happy with this lovely newcomer!!!! cheers cheers cheers

Harriet is very competent sculpting every kind of animal. Not long ago, I revisited some of her topics. It is amasing her talent. Very Happy Although a very small figure, it is brilliant. Now it is time to other talented hands to crossbreed that Percheron and give it a new life. bounce

Thank you so much for your nice comments LeeAnn sunny Susanne flower and Roger  Laughing

Yes Harriet made a lovely model of horse and indeed in Stablemates size. I really love this kind of small sized figures, they are easy to display. Even if I don't have too much space to show my collection now I can find show place for the horses like THIS (I love you). I don't know if my hand is accurate object to show the scale but you can see the approximate size on this photo:



Very Happy

I really hope to start painting him this Saturday bounce And then I want to choose new name for him Very Happy

Oh, thank you for letting me know LeeAnn. Here are the pictures of the colour I would like to paint Achille, I'm not sure which of these two shades is better, I think lighter one:

Some excellent colors to paint, but I like the first one more too drunken
The second one is Finn horse I guess. Very Happy At least the photographer is Finnish. Laughing

I like both colors but my suggestion was another though I suspect I am late. As you don't want to keep it as a Percheron, his conformation could be used for an American Cream Draft, a rare breed of a wonderful color. Very Happy I hope it is different from your first! Laughing
Cream coat, pink skin and amber eyes. Very Happy  (golden champagne sabino)

Thank you Paige, Jonas, Karolina and Roger Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Roger, I really love this colour! It's amazing! Shocked cheers
However for Achille I think I prefer a little bit darker shades and more intense colour. I will remember about American Cream Draft for my future projects and customs, I do think it's very pretty breed of horses with really sunny colour sunny  Also I think I will safe this particular photo because it's so pretty combination and beautiful facial marking (golden champagne sabino, wow! ) cheers

(in my first link was just another silver bay Wink )

This idea of an American Cream Draft popped in my mind originally for a repaint of your wonderful Suffolk Punch, I also find it wonderful color and there aren't big exigences in terms of conformation to these horses, what determine their breed is their color as long as they are draft horses.
I am glad you enjoyed it, please click the link to see more pictures of Ben! Very Happy
