At long last they are here !!! The Tinkers that were presented last year, but were impossible to get hold of, arrived in Denmark last week
The models are made by Our Anna, and it is so great to see how her love of horses radiates from these two
They are so realistic, - the mare trotting along, and the yearling is still attached to her Mom, and is cantering to follow her.
Here they run on my dining table !
The troll in the background is Siggi, who is wagging his tail wildly, because Mom is so happy
The mare is made in a nice, smooth material , a bit like Papo, while the yearling is more shiny and soft and not quites as nice feeling.
Mom and daughter fit perfectly in scale.
Filly is not yet a year old, - perhaps 7 - 8 months, but they are called yearlings from the 1st of January the year after their birth.
Mom's hooves need to be trimmed, but it is fortunate, because that way she can stand in the elegant, trotting position without falling
Here they are, compared to some other tinkers : The rearing new one from Papo, and the well known Schleich one.
Tinkers can have sizes from 135 cm to 170 cm, but these two are clearly family.
Filly has not yet developed very much fetlocks, but with the genes from her mom, she will surely get that later.
Beautyful and typcal manes !
Perfect body shapes for both
Here a few close-ups of Filly :
She still has a little of the winter-beard...typical for young yearlings . And also the bambi-eayes that make yearlings so sweet and innocent looking, they always make my heart reach out to them
And a bit of baby-wool under the chest, - perfectly seen by the artist
There are lots of details, so I completely forget the glossy surface
Here comes MOM :
She has the most adoreable face ever :drunk:
And beautyful fetlocks
As mentioned above, her hooves need clipping, - but it is a great idea instead of the usual wrong-length-legs we often see on trotting models to prevent them from falling !
The way her mane and tail are floating is BRILLIANT !!!
On most trotting models the mane is either standing up, hanging down, or punking like spikes.
This is how it really looks !!! HURRAAAY
All in all I think this pair is a stroke of genious !! Bothe of them ! But especially together
Hurrayyy for Mojo and for Anna
