Lovely, lovely, lovely !!!! I love you
The thighs are perhaps not sturdy enough, and the body could be deeper, but it is a lovely model.

I have never seen a chestnut Belgian draught before, - here in Denmark they are all bay, bay-roan, or ( rarely) black .

Perhaps it is because the local Jutland horse is usually flaxen chestnut, so that way they are easier to tell from each other scratch

My uncle used to work with a pair, one of them bay-roan and the other flaxen

Lovely! A total must it! Maybe the coat isn't so usual in Belgian horses but CollectA is always using "rare" colours, isn't it? They put a roan coat in the Andalusian stallion, for example.

Lovely looking horse Smile .Maybe they have gone the American way with colour as the Belgians in the USA all tend to be this colour.

Considering Deborah is still the sculptor of CollectA's horses and taking in consideration she is North American. So, what we are seeing is an American Belgian draft horse. It explains its color as Taos correctly pointed once it is the most common color for this breed in America. The design looks fairly simple but correct. Very Happy

The chestnut colour for the Belgian drafthorse is very common here in the Netherlands and in Belgium.
Those horses present a very famous Belgian beer called Palm beer.
For the longest time they were represented on the label of the beer bottle and in commercials.
When you say: "Palm beer" in Belgium or Holland, everyone automaticly thinks of chestnut Belgian drafthorses. Very Happy

I like this horse a lot Very Happy Beautiful! I would expect Belgian draft horse to have more feathers and perhaps a heavier type but it's a beautiful model nevertheless. Smile

Except the term “Brabant” refers to European Belgian Drafts only Wink This one is clearly an American/Canadian type. European horses look heavier, are shorter and less “leggy”. Also, they are very rarely chrstnut, unlike the American type, which is almost exclusively chestnut.

Very nice! I like the colour as well as the sculpt very much, though as some of you wrote her body could be deeper.
Probably my favourite horse of the 2018 range.

In my country we have Czech-Moravian Belgian horse, it's local variant of Belgian breed. My relatives had a bay mare, when I was younger and they brood her, I remember a chestnut filly. They can be chestnut, bay, roan, black and (rarely) even grey in our country.
Here is a Czech-Moravian Belgian champion 3 yrs old filly from Moravian Championship 2016:

And stunning Czech-Moravian Belgian stallion Agy 1699 who later became The Horse of the Year in 2016:

He is definitely on me the most beautiful horses I have ever seen.

I hope I can have a replica of him, one day, and I'm gonna to add the CollectA mare to my herd.

Yes, my first thought as well is this is clearly an American Belgian. Very Happy Most Belgians here are chestnut in color and are much lighter built than the European type. Smile Lovely model, great to see another draft!

I guess we were discussing the same thing with Percheron mare - that she is a lighter, long legged American version of the breed.
