Last week, spotted family got new member Very Happy it's the retired suckling Knabstrupper colt. Surprisly I found store with six models to choose, so I could fortunately take one with minimum of rubs. Previously, I didn't like this foal at all, I don't know exactly why. Maybe his face seemed too long to me.


Or maybe because his position itselfs looks strange. But it looks really great with the dam! They are very nice inseperable pair of figurines.  Smile

I agree that this foal look strange without a mare but when it is together with his Mother, it turns in one of the most interesting foals Schleich released. Very Happy

You're absolutely right, Rogério, it's one of the most interesting and unique foals.

This week I was on a trip in Wien and I brought the Lipizzaner foal from Bayala Pferdehof magazin. I wanted some typical Austrian breed, I was thinking about the Haflingers. But then I got info about the magazin. And I realized that especially for Wien the Lipizzaners are even more typical, due to Spanish Riding School. I would like to thank to you, dear STSers, who posted the informations about magazin. :-) 

I don't like the braided mane at all. I know they sometimes do it also to foals, but I think it would look better with smaller and less braids. The last on its back is definitely over. I appreciate the paintwork, it's well done. The color is actually more dark brown like chocolate, the photo is bit reddish. I'm not at home now, I'm looking forward to introduce this little filly to other Lipizzaners.

Hello,
last week I finally spent some days at home, so I could introduce my recent additions to the rest of my collection. And one special addition arrived Wink
I discovered new natural position for suckling Knabstrupp foal. (The first meeting with his little spotted uncle..well, the colt looks a bit frightened  Laughing )


Like mother, like daughter: my Exclusive Lipizzaner mare and foal.

And Lipizzaner broodmares with foals.


And finally quite old figurine: 13263 Holsteiner foal, my first model purchased from another collector. Her belly says 2001, so she is my oldest foal. I am surprised how well sculpted this foal is. It looks much more like a living foal than most of recent foals. And she is in good condition, only few rubs (which I'm going to fix).

She looks small and very young, compared to another chestnut foal - the Hanoverian colt. Also a way more realistic. I need a mother for this little orphan. (But I'm sure some of broodmare aunts will look after her  Very Happy )

Congratulations and nice pictures! Very Happy Don't be surprised that a 2001 Schleich figure looks better than their more recent counterparts. In 2001 Schleich was living gold days. Very Happy I hope your foal gets a good Mom. Very Happy

Oh, thank you very much, Rogério and Susanne Very Happy
Nice to hear you like my pictures. I'm honoured to put a smile on your face, Susanne.  Smile

I discovered Schleich in 2004, and I remember my excitement. When I get the catalogue in my hand, the collecting started. And I was always looking forward to new releases, but now, I'm rather looking for the older ones.
I hope I manage to get the Holstein mother. She is such a good model, with charm and personality, but hard to find (at least here in CZ).

Hello,
in August I spent amazing days in Berlin. And brought some souvenirs back with me Wink
I want something unvailable in my country, so I bought the horse care set with the new Friesian. And a hay + german catalogue.


The little piggy is actually a gift for a friend, who works with animals and loves pigs, she wanna have a real one. This little girl is so cute, I'm definitely going to add her also to my collection one day. She looks so real compared to my old piglets, especially to the white one.


Ready for the Friesian spam? Very Happy
There were lot of photos taken and words written, let me share some feelings from personal meeting. First, I was really excited that the sets were available in KaDeWe. But when I took him from the box, I had mixed feelings. The head is big and the neck is long for his slim body. I believe they wanted to make a modern sporthorse type of Friesian (lighter, with long neck), but in that case he should have also longer legs. And the head is still too big. What is shame, cause the head itself is beautiful, with nice details and proportions. And the waves of mane are well sculpted. His eyes aren't too big, he has nice expression.
(it's hard to take photos of solid black horse)
Here he is with the accessories, I also bought the hay, cause I love the idea of small accessories and they don't sell them in czech stores.

And some comparison with the old Friesians I have. They look brown compared to him. His black is charming, but I must say I'm a bit dissapointed with the paintwork. Nice idea of matte mane and shiny coat, but it could be done more properly. There are quite big areas on the body, which remain matte. I mean, he has no spots, no airbrushing just solid colour, nothing complicated, so they could be more precise.

After all, I got used to him quickly. Maybe he isn't perfect, but he definitely has a charm and personality. I'm thinking about calling him Bukephalos, cause he stands so proud and heroic.

Thank you for your attention, ladies and gentlemen. cheers

I can see what you mean with the neck and head - it seems like he is tipping a little bit forward, but still I think he is beautilful and a nice addition to the others. When I saw him in the catalouge I actually thought he looked a lot like the other stallion (13667), but with your pictures I can see he looks different in build.

Yes, you're right, I didn't realised it before, but it seems like his big head pulls him forward. For me it was always like the head and neck is from one horse, and the rest of body from another. But he is definitely beautiful. I don't have the 13667 one, but there is a great comparison by Jetty http://sts-forum.forumieren.de/t14670-the-new-friesian-stallion-from-schleich where you can see the differences. The regular one is more like baroque type and this new exclusive is modern sporthorse type I supposed. Also the paintwork is different.

Hello,
I was so busy lately, I didn't post my last, very good catch - the old 13227 Hanoverian mare in a very nice condition. I was so happy. She's not perfect sculpt (her eyes pointing too forward for a horse, they should be more on sides of the head), but definitely has a vintage charm. She was introduced in 1995, so she is my oldest horse (but I'm not sure in which year the previous owner purchased her. I quess around 2000). Here she is:


She definitely looks like old, calm broodmare, I think she could be perfect adoptive mother for my Holsteiner orphan, they look nice togehter:


And finally evolution of the Hanoverian mares, and all my Hanoverians. As they became my favourite breed, I'm so happy I could add this old one to the family. Very Happy

Such a lovely horse, congratulations! I was very lucky with this particular horse: I found it new (with tag) in my local Schleich/Papo shop a few years back, years after it was retired. Now I'm still looking for the white variation!

Thank you, Andreas, Julie and Rakel :-)

Such a luck, to find her new with tag in a store, Julie. I could see some really old cows, pigs and dogs in stores, but not so many old horses. Good luck with the white variant, I would be also pleased with her, but that brown one was my priority.

Hello,
after few weeks of break, I got new addition - Hereford bull. I always like this mold and the Hereford coat suites him better for me. (But I'm not a cattle expert, so I don't know if he has a right body form for this breed). As he is going to be retired next year and as I found only one store (among six) selling him I decided to buy him. So I have a novelty and a retired model at the same time.  Very Happy

He is my first bull. He is so detailed and well scuplted. I like the wrinkles on the neck and the curly fur on his head. Paintwork is nice, soft shading, no rubs. But he is much lighter than the promo one. He should be darker and more reddish, he is actually light brown. I would also appreciate a bit of cream/yellow on his head. It would be more natural. (But maybe he is clean and ready for show Very Happy ) Last thing that bothers me a bit - overfilled eyes, what make them bigger. But after all, very nice model and I'm definitely happy that I got him.

Here he is joining my small herd of cows (they don't look exited at all). I'm sad that the Hereford cow is available only in USA. I expected they release her next year also in Europe, but they won't. And the new Herefords aren't Herefords. They don't have correct pattern. So he will probably never be a sire...

As long as you like your bull, it is always a good addition. I think the mold is quite acceptable to the breed but certainly other members more familiar with this matter can help you better. Very Happy
Isn't it somewhat frustrating that with so many cows, the only bull cannot be a sire? Wink

The situation with the cow is quite frustrating, but there is a small chance to get her.. One of my friends is travelling to New York in January or February, I'm gonna to ask her to bring the cow (and calf).

Hello, I hope you all had spent nice Christmas with lot of additions under the Christmas tree. Very Happy
I got one from my sister - Haflinger foal lying down. When I realized it's gonna be retired in 2016, I put it to my wishlist. But I couldn't find even one in 9 shops in 3 cities. Luckily, my sister has a friend, who runs a toy store in our hometown and she asked her to order it just from toy supplier. So I found this lovely filly (it has no gender, for me it's a filly) under our Christmas tree. She was in original bag from factory, thanks to it she is in perfect condition, but surprisly without Schleich tag.

I like her natural pose, and lot of details - wrinkles on the neck, ears pointing backwards, realistic eyes (brown with black horizontal pupils), snip and two coloured hoofs. Paintojob is very well done, I only don't get why the whole muzzle is glossy. She was made in Germany in August 2015. For me definitely one of the best Schelich foals. This year was rich in extra foals - extraordinary poses (grazing Arabian, suckling Knabstrupper, lying Haflinger), extra Bayla foal and one old and rare.

I love it when there are rewiews of models that we think we know so well ! cheers

Funny, - I just checked mine ( also made in Germany ), and she has round pupils  Shocked  Very Happy

You are right, it is an adoreable foal. This one and the "new baby" 13699 are some of the cutest, nicest foals that Schleich has made Wink

Funny, - I just checked mine ( also made in Germany ), and she has round pupils  Shocked  Very Happy

You are right, it is an adoreable foal. This one and the "new baby" 13699 are some of the cutest, nicest foals that Schleich has made Wink
Thanky you, Susanne. I also like reviews or photos of older ones, it reminds me pleasure of having them in the collection or make me add them to wishlist.
I always thought her eyes are brown with round pupils, but surprisly mine has oval pupils.  :-) 
The "new baby" is also very cute! But I like the lying one more  ;-)

Hello,
at the begging of January, I found an advertisement with one of my Schleich holy grail - the Holsteiner mare (variant from wagon set from Indian world.) The seller didn't sell horses individually, I had to take 4 horses, but the price was very good, and their condition is even better! cheers
Here they are:


Closer photos:
A beautiful Camargue mare, nice companion to my small semi-wild herd. Very nicely sculpted in unusual looking back pose. She has only two small rubs:


"Big Momma" - The Percheron mare in perfect condition, with her tiny lovely colt. He is so small compared to the other drafter foals. My Percheron family is finally complete:
sorry for the photo quality :/

And finally, the stunning Holsteiner mold. I didn't care if I get the regular one or this "exclusive", both are nice, I just want the sculpt. She has some small rubs, but nothing terrible. The price was about 5 € including postage, what is very good I think. I'm only confused by her colour, I thought she is supposed to be a bay, but her mane and tail are dark brown...so some type of chestnut? Or just manufacturer's mistake? Anyway, I love her Wink

So little Eclipse is no longer an orphan Very Happy

Now I have almost all horses I've ever wanted Wink

Hello,
after months of planning, I finally got the Poitou donkey. She is very nice, I like her fluffy fur and the expression. Mine has nice shading around muzzle. She was made in 2009, so she was waiting for years in that store. Now I have two donkeys and I'm going to buy also the Poitou baby, it's cute.
