Hello, let me share my august additions:
When I got the second Percheron colt from Yvette, and realized, that he is different from my previous one, I thought he could have also the different mother.


So I commissioned this amazing repaint of regular Percheron mare:


It is repainted by one of most popular Czech CM artists, Rzdemetri Horses. Look at those dapples!


And the detailed eyes:


OF and CM comparison:


And finally the complete Percheron family:


I also bought the Simmental/Fleckvieh cow and calf, as they're retired since this july. I've always wanted them, but they're hard to find now, especially the cow.


They're lovely. I especially love the cow, she is so detailed and looks very gentle:


I only dislike her overfilled eyes (my is made in Tunisia) and lack of paint here and there. But she has nice bonus - "freckles" on her udder. I actually saw something like that on real cows:


And the calf is also very cute.


They're my Schleichs number 100 and 101! (when I count also the accessories)

You take very beautiful pictures! These figures are nice but in your pics they really look even better. Your collecting numbers are also taking good shape. Laughing

Ladies and gentlemen,
my pleasure to introduce to you Glisando:


By Graphit, out of Odessa. My first complete Exclusive family. (and also international, mother from Aachen, father from Munich, son from Vienna Very Happy) As there were these magazines with Exclusive foals, and I got the Lipizzaner one, I prayed also for an exclusive Hanoverian, even more when I got the stallion from Yvette. So this little black colt is my dream-come-true!


His mother was one of my two first Exclusives, my sister brought her (with Müller Lipizzaner mare) to me as a Christmas gift from her bussiness trip to Germany. That's why she is special to me  I love you I'm happy she can join my broodmares now.


Here are my first two Exclusives with their offsprings:


And a quick comparison of special and regular run: both are lovely, I would only appreciate some shading on the exclusive one, black foals are often dark grey instead of solid black.

Thanks to this little fellow number of Hanoverians in my collection reached 17.

And there is another special addition. When I was looking for the Horse Club magazine with the Hanoverian few days after it was released, it wasn't very easy in Vienna. Luckily, I found a comics store called Morawa (what is funny, cause the area, where I live in my country is called Morava) with last piece. But surprisingly, they had also one with Andalusian foal from previous year.

I bought it, though she is orphan in my collection, at least for now...

Now I have three Exclusive foals, all are from one of my favourite cities - Vienna.

Hi,
look who came last month:


It's 16309 Irish setter from 1995, quite rare, at least in our country. It came from collector from our capital, who purchased it from someone from Germany. I love it, though it isn't as elegant and athletic as for example Breyer Irish setter, but it has proper dark red colour and typical head shape:


And as I was looking after a female Irish setter for two years when I was younger, and have learnt a lot about dogs from her, setters will always have place in my heart I love you and this figurine has definitely the loving and loyal expression I remember from the real one.
7

Here is a comparison with my very first Schleich - 16330 Border collie


and with 16307 St. Bernard, these are my oldest dogs (the St. Bernard mold is from the same year as the setter, but I have later colour variant of St. Bernard, from 2006 I guess):


It's actually third setter in my collection, and the only one with real colour (the sitting is unknown company, it's from my childhood, the other standing is Procon, and it has stood at my table and sunbathing for too long, so it's colour has turned to khaki on head, both need to be repainted seriously):

Thank you, Susanne and Andreas.
I also like how they're different, but what is same are the heads up looking at you and waiting for what they can do for you. I had quite strong bond with the setter I kept, and she always looked at me that way. Sometimes, I had feeling she would follow me even to hell...

Very fine photos. In my opinion this Irish Setter is one of the best dog figures by Schleich in the older time.

Thank you :-) It is definitely one of the older Schleich dogs. And I was surprised how nice are these old dogs in general, I really like the Münsterlander for example.

That´s right, these old models have their very own charm and they are very expressive,

I also like very much that Setter. Even before collecting dogs, I acquired some retired Schleich figures in a lot and I traded most of them. Though, when the requested figure was the Setter, I couldn't let it go and it is still with me. Very Happy

My another November addition is second repaint of Schleich Percheron mare. The artist, who repainted her offered me her together with some commissioned repaints of MW and Stone Chips.


She is beautiful dark mealy bay (pangaré) with large white markings.


I like the shading around muzzle:

I will probably show her as a Silesian Noriker or Czecho-Moravian Belgian, what are our national variants of Noriker and Belgian Horse.

So I have two beautiful repaints on these mold by talented artist.


And my first small conga:

I wished Schleich could get back to these old days. This Percheron is a great figure and those repaints are even better. Your pictures are also great and now you belong to the conga club. Laughing
