PostSubject: Schleich retired Icelandic horse changed into Hucul horse (more pics p.2)   Fri Sep 12, 2014 2:20 pm

So, I wanted to have a hucul horse in my collection, and I have thought that the old Schleich Icelandic would be good for such custom. I have lengthened its body and resculpted its butt, and painted it like one of the horses that I love to ride on.
Since I don't know f I will be able to participate in horse riding lessons in the near future, I have decided to make a small memento of my beloved Wektra.

Enjoy!

Wow, mini Wektra is wonderful cheers
The paintwork is really nicely done, I love that elbow spot I love you
Also, the resculpt part is very neat too! It fits very well and the change from clay to mold is not noticeable (to me).
Really great cheers

The horse is lovely, I love those roaned patches, and blue eyes - marvellous!

BUT!

You've made one primar, silly mistake while choosing the new breed - the Hucul, unlike the Icelandic, is NOT a gaited breed. There's no way a Hucul would move like that...

Doesn't matter to me that much, I can always reposition that leg a little bit. But thank you for the point, it is one more thing to learn about horses Wink

Ok, I have repositioned the leg and changed the dots a little bit. I hope it is better now.

It is a stunning repaint, WONDERFUL Applause

She still goes tölt, - no way you can change that Wink
Now it more "pleasure-rider-tölt" without the desired lift in front, but notice the lateral movement .

Pace and tölt, rack and running walk are lateral movements (The legs at the same side move forward).

Agata, I think it;s beautiful work, whether gait is accurate for the breed or not I think it is a great idea to make portrait of your favourite pony in form of such lovely figurine. Also I think it's one of the nicest Schleich sculpts, much better than many new ponies of this brand!  Applause And your paint work is really fantastic on this one!!!!

About the gait, I think Susanne is our expert about the tolt indeed! I remember even more detailed analyse by Susanne about the Iceys toy figures and their tolt quality! Very Happy  I really loved to read that!!! sunny

However, I think in one phase of canter the legs are in a bit similar position (also lateral). Well, maybe some angles are a bit different then. And of course next phase of canter would be much different than next phase of tolt but the figure represents the frozen moment of time, so we can't tell what the next step is. So please look at that photo, it's a bit similar to your figure in my opinion and it's clearly a phase of canter (surely the front leg is not lifted that high but anyway) So basically, if you would like to change the tolt into something different than maybe change some details, some angles and you can get something like that then?  Smile I don't think it is necessary though. I do think your model is very beautiful whatever gait it uses!

Oh, thank you girls for the explanation, now I get it scratch God, why does it have to be so complicated? I thought all horses move likewise, haha Laughing  But well, somebody has to be very observant to notice the difference Smile

I don't want to touch it anymore because any changes would be visible, though I guess it will annoy me a little bit from now on knowing that the movement should be different... lol.

By the way, poor horse on the photo Evil or Very Mad

Noo, you don't have any reason to be annoyed, it is beautiful work! No worries about the gaits, it's just for the info, take it easy Very Happy
