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.

Thank you. The old appy stallion is actually one of my favourites, he was my first warmblood ;-)

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

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.

Hi,
as I've posted here, I got some special Schleich figurines from Yvette. 2015 Müller Exclusive Hanoverian stallion and two cute youngsters as gifts.
Here are some photos:
Another Exclusive for my collection, my third Müller horse.
Pure black stallion:

Compared to the regular brown one (Made in China variation):
This mold is one of my favourite by Schleich, maybe the best warmblood stallion, and I like him bit more as the regular brown, thanks to his shading. The solid black is a bit boring, I wish they did for example a chestnut or grey one. But my black stallion has well painted hooves and markings. And there's one advantage of the solid black - no rubs at all.

Here he is meeting the Müller Exclusive Hanoverian mare. They are nice pair, aren't they? I wish there will be some exclusive Hanoverian foal for them:

First of the two surprises was a new addition to the Percheron family:
So we have twins here Very Happy but as you can see, they are not identical. They are from different countries: the new (on the left) is Made in Germany and has better shadings and larger head marking than the former (Made in China). There is also slightely different head shape and some other details:

And the second big surprise is this cute donkey foal! I'm planning the Poitou donkey foal, so it has allready mate waiting for it. And my first donkey is a mum now Very Happy

Interesting details about these foals! I agree about the Hanoverian, it is one of these inspired figures from Schleich, not being a horse collector, I also have one of the regular ones. Congratulations! :)

Hi, last week, a package with some old models arrived.
The real treasure (for me) among them is the 13115 Hanoverian foal, introduced in 1995. I didn't expected that I would be able to get one. Its not very realistic, but funny:

When I purchased the 13227 mare, I thought she's a nice broodmare, ideal aunt for foals without moms, but now she got the chance to have her own foal I love you (By the way, they are both from the same seller, so probably reunion after few months?)


Evolution of the Schleich Hanoverian foals:


Second gem from the package is the old 13232 Shetland pony, in good condition. This little chubby guy is so cute:


Compared to my other shetlands: (I really need the rearing one)


I got also grazing riding pony (13299). Not in perfect condition, rubs mostly on leg markings. But I like the pose. More grazing molds!


The tallest of the catch is 13261 Trakehner mare. I like these warmblood molds from around 2002, they represent Schleich very well, much better than the contemporary warmbloods.

So we have twins here Very Happy but as you can see, they are not identical. They are from different countries: the new (on the left) is Made in Germany and has better shadings and larger head marking than the former (Made in China). There is also slightely different head shape and some other details:

Such interesting finds !!! Thanks for sharing Applause

I'm happy I can share it with you all Very Happy

Hooray, I finally got the Poitou donkey foal, which I planned for months!
There were two last pieces in the store, so I was lucky. It's supercute, I love it.

So the both of my adult donkeys are mums now and the little donkey from Yvette has a friend Wink

I find real donkeys cute creatures, so it is great to see a figure that captures their cuteness. Nice pics. Very Happy

Hi,
my friend has three minigoats, and two of them delivered their first kids in July, what inspired me to get also some kids:

I have bought their mother in the year she was released, and finally I purchased also these cute babies. So my family of mini goats is complete! cheers


And little Amelie has now friends to play with:

I think the new duo is sculpted better, with tiny details, but I like the eyes of the older one more. It has light brown eyes with black horizontal pupil, the new twins have solid black eyes, what gives them a kind of alien look.

To save on shipping, I bought two small accessories sets from 2016:


I just bought the blanket to prevent dusting of some of my horses, but I'm actually impressed how carefully it is made. There are two different materials from each side:


And surprisingly, it fits to Bella Rose very well! The halter is of course big for her, but it will look great on any mare, especially on the greys:


And the grooming kit, I'm excited about the tiny hoof pick. And I'm also glad they've changed the girlish pink box to a less girlish colour, I think it would look great as a part of a diorama:
