She is WONDERFUL cheers

Safari made one also, look [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Very Happy

I love the head of this one, but am not sure it is correct for the breed, where it says : ..."a face that is neither dished nor protruding."
I take it that  "Protruding" means the same as we usuall call "Roman nose" like this mare has ? scratch

I look very much forward ho see her on my shelf bounce Very Happy

I like the colour, like the head shape, but same as with Paso mare the tail is bothering me. What a strange swirl Shocked ... It seems to me, that legs of the 2017 horses are thicker than of horses from previous years, and also not so carefully sculpted.

This Rocky Mountain horse is beautyful , but... yes, what is it ? Very Happy

I agree. Their previous horses were better sculpted than 2017 new horses. Their legs are thick and their heads are too big, and all of them looks "barbie horse" with the very long and wavy tail and mane. (Cute horses especially for little girl? Same wrong way as Schleich already started?) pale

I hope they're not heading in this direction. As I was saying in other threads, this can actually turn girls off.

Fortunately, I think this mare still looks like a nice horse. The nose makes her resemble an andalusian-type breed, but I still don't mind it.

Thicker legs are better, so the horses better stand and not twisted from summer temperatures.

Maybe, but they're less realistic.

Looking closer at her again, I think I know what bothers me on this otherwise lovely model, - it is the size of the head ( And the Roman nose, as said before). The Roman nose belongs to a baroque type of horse, - very far from this breed scratch

About the "swirl", - as the Peruvian Paso, this is a gaited horse, and when they go real good ambling, the tail indeed does swirl  Laughing

Not only. Quick example - the Nonius is more of a driving type, yet they have pretty prominent convex profile. And what about the Shire? Wink
But yes, RMH has typical straight profile.

Also - I've noticed that McDermott tends to make too big heads or too small barrels. Or both.

I agree with Jonas!
This is the only 2017 horse I plan to acquire! Can't wait to customize her! Although I would assign a different breed....most likely a cross to account for the thick legs and roman nose.

It is true that the legs are thicker and less realistic, however, one of the drawbacks to the plastic CollectA uses for their figures is its propensity for warping. The thicker the legs, the less likely warping will occur. I have an adorable Dartmoor pony that I customized, and its leg is starting to turn inward. If you try to gently push it out, the finish is susceptible to cracking. I need to experiment with heat to see if that may provide a better solution. I just love the Deb McDermott sculptures, but the warping is a concern for me.
