These are cute the same as mini Sheltands in real life. And owners of this type of ponies often make braids on manes too. Smile
I like the colours too Smile

Exactly what I wanted to say. Ditto that Very Happy

They keep telling to wait and see the others .... I don't believe they are much better though.

As Roger said nothing will be change if complaints won't translate into less selling... I'm afraid of that but Schleich is in a wrong way

I really do not like the braids. Schleich should go back to their old styles. I am probably not going to buy the rest of the 2014 models or 15 ones, and use that money for older Schleich models or for other brands.

I though the exact same thing when I saw it. silent

I love the little stallion, I feel that that was a good idea on their part, the foal I'm not sure of, his style looks like the foal from last year. I'm sensing a trend (at least for me) that if I do buy any models of their horses they will bachelors or orphans... Wink They appear to be using the braids mostly on the mares. Disappointing. All the comments for the post make me laugh "aw its so adorable! and its sooooo cute!" I get that they can have their opinion, but it explains Schleich's market nowadays, apparently cute sells really well (which makes sense). I can only hope that they will have a few good models...

On a side note, since there's only about 10-ish weeks left for Schleich to introduce their entire range, I would imagine instead of introducing one model at a time, they will do small groups of them in decorative banners like they did with the pony family. They seem to like the whole banner thing, and it wouldn't make sense to just one figure a week, they wouldn't get them all shown. Anyways, no fear, as I said they will probably introduced by small groupings inside their banner digital art type stuff.

I agree. Their cutesy style works for certain figures like the mini shetlands. That's what they should do anyways, utilize the naturally cute species to their advantage (i.e. fluffy cats, hamsters, some species of monkeys etc.) and if they did it right they could diversify the collecting world through that strategy. They shouldn't force it on animals that aren't necessarily cute, crocs, tigers, buffalo, rhinos, etc. and instead focus on animals with a natural cuteness like golden snub-nosed monkeys etc.

I predicted several years ago that Schleich would deemphasize animal figurines to concentrate on human (or action-type) figurines. At this point, that would seem to be a good decision, since it appears Schleich is no longer able to design and manufacture a worthwhile animal line.

On the other hand, the new action figures, especially the Batman ones, are excellent... Sad

I have never liked Schleich's horses, and don't collect them. But these ones are terrible. I think they are getting worse and worse. Are these horse figurines, or what?

I don't collect horses but those are kind of odd. The stallion is cute and I don't have any complaints about that one but the mare...no horse has a mane that looks like that. I guess its supposed to look super girly?

The foal looks a bit deformed.

Wow, I'm surprised to see that so many of you are so disappointed with them! I mean, OK, the very cute ponies, that's choice for kids. Maybe adult collectors don't need those indeed. But in this cutesy they are real. Mini Shetlands are very popular in The Netherlands at least. I see them often and they ARE cute. Actually I find them adorable I love you . And little girls often make braids to make these little creatures look even cuter.
In my opinion ponies are just what schleich can sculpt and design very naturally. Fluffy, cute, almost teddy bears among pony breeds. These works sometimes as therapy horses and most of the kids love them. sunny

I personally can't stand the Arabian, Trakheners  sculpted by Schleich nowadays. How can you sculpt non bone, non muscles, plushy textured Arabian or Trakhener?! affraid
I adore these magnificent breeds of horses but not as a schleich sculpts. No

Ohh, that would be awesome if they do that way!!! Very Happy
Imagine slow loris, wombats, cuscus, golden snub nosed monkey, awwww drunken all are cute but what a diversity could that be if they do more research for extra cute species Very Happy Very Happy
I'm actually very surprised they never made a chow chow. Did they? scratch

I'm not as depressed about the shetties as most of you are. I'm still not a fan of the braids... But I think Ana is right, but in that case I think schleich should make a little braiding girl. After all, have you even seen a mini shettie without happy little fangirls Wink

Still, I don't like the new heads/eyes schleich makes. They all look the same te me Sad and theres somthing wrong with the noseline I think scratch

And I noticed someting funny to, the pose of the foal looks almost exactly like the foal I sculpted some months ago ("'new sculpture: a fluffy falabela foal") Shocked coincidende?

Yes, indeed pose is very similar! Perhaps they were inspired in your sculpt? The topic is here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Very Happy
Yours however is more dynamic with the one leg up in the air and I find it overall better than the Schleich foal, it looks more alive. Smile

About the eyes, in general Schleich sculpt always oversized eyes. That's what they do in all of their animals. They do it so often that many people think this is natural look of the animals ad eyes are correct size. Real horse eyes never exceed 4cm (actually 37 millimetres ) in diameter so in scale 1:20 they should be 2 millimetres wide at max. In schleich horses (1:20 scale) the eyes are 5 millimetres wide - so more then twice as big as they should be. That makes the extra cute look, but for me it is alien look. alien Maybe that's why the head look incorrect for you too. Smile

Haha, thanks Agata!!! Laughing Laughing

Yes, too much braids in general, I agree. If it was only 10% of schleich horses with braids that would be still ok, but I think now they are closer to 50% Razz Too much!!! Sleep

I want to keep clear that I never said they're ugly, actually stallion is quite pretty. Though, I don't agree that they look like Shetlands only because they are cute. When I see that picture, I cannot see any realism on it, it looks to me like a presentation of a kids morning tv program.
Well, mare is not ugly but the best I can tell is that it is ridiculous, I can't give a better opinion of it. Stallion is pretty, with huge eyes, very chubby even for a Shetland and very well brushed for a horse in a rearing movement. Neck is short, snout is not shaped like a Shetland, nostrils are wrong, eys are huge, the only thing it shares with a Shetland is because it is cute but My little ponies were cute and they were never sold as realistic. Why I don't like them? Because I love Shetlands and their natural cuteness, they don't need to be replicated as little clowns. clown I expect an Arabian stallion to this year, I hope they respect the breed. Very Happy

Phil, I think with this rearing Shetland stallion, Batman won't need a car anymore. Very Happy
