I've just got this good news from Collecta:

"In the CollectA Horse World we are showing you a horse breed from the steppes regions of Russia where the Don River flows, simply called the “Russian Don” . Utilized originally as cavalry horses for the Cossacks, these horses are currently used for under-saddle work and driving."

Don horses are naturally a bit "glossy", they are supposed to have a certain golden shine when well cared for. I've seen it myself, it looks majestic. Kind of like this -

It's a shame this model has a dark mane, though. Don horses can be bay, black and even gray sometimes, but they are famous for their fiery chestnut color.

Not the most exciting model in terms of stance, but a very exciting breed!!!

Welcomming a new breed and a new member and both are Russian. Wink I am really glad for CollectA's breed choice, despite the current uses of this breed it is clearly a historical breed and sometimes figures are also educative in that way. About the color I don't know but the sculpt looks adjusted to what I can see googling online. If I ever get again some more horses for my collection, this one will be in my priorities together with the also Russian [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by Mojö and sculpted by Anna Dobrowolska.
I even also have a name for this mare, I hope the Cossacks and Napoleon don't mind that I call it Josephine. Laughing

I'm not exactly new, Very Happy I've been reading this forum for five years now, just never posted anything.
As for Russian breeds, there are some interesting ones (Russian Riding and Vladimir Heavy Draft are especially distinct and beautiful), and I believe we desperately need a good model of Orlov Trotter. I have the one by Mojo, and it's just... ugh, no. Orlov Trotter, as the founder of this breed put it, "an Arab horse that is seen through a magnifying glass," they are very elegant, very graceful, with long swan-like neck. I wish Deborah McDermott discovered them one day, I think she can do justice to them.

Wow, major brands (with several excaptions, of course!) remember about existance of russian breeds!
Not the most impressive horse from Deborah, but still pretty nice. And so she is absolutely in my wishlist!

But can't say that I'd recognize her breed without title. I'm not really sure about dark mane and tail. All the don horses that I've ever seen had the same color of a mane and a tail as their the body has. scratch Suspect

Yes, I can see you're a member already for a long time and I am glad you decided to start posting. I surely won't discuss about Anna and Deborah's works in a comparative way once I am a enthusiast of both. Maybe Mojö's Orlov trotter is not as sumptuous as the real animal but I think it is quite decent and share a similar quality to CollectA's Akhal-Teke that is probably the only Asian breed that Deborah featured. Essentially, I think it is quite meritory that Mojö Fun decided to introduce, so early in their range, an Russian breed, no other similar company did it before despite the extensive range of some of these companies. To be fair, I don't understand why breeds of the largest country of the world, with such an important rhole in the world and an interesting cavalry tradition, are so often neglected. We have this horse from CollectA, the Mojö Fun Orlove trotter, the Bullyland Russian Blue cat (historically very known because of the czars) and probably we have to search in minor companies to find a Russian wolfhound and so. Thus, Mojö Fun and CollectA will always have my admiration for being brave enough to introduce these two Russian breeds in the market. Very Happy

No, it's not about comparison, 'cause both ladies are absolutely brilliant - and both have some not so good models also, which is okay, we all can hit and miss sometimes. Btw, Anna's work seems to get better every year and it's a beautiful thing to watch, really. Smile
And you're right, Russian breeds are overlooked too often; although I remember some very old model of Vladimir Heavy Draft - Schleich's maybe?.. Dogs also need to be represented more, not only world-famous Russian wolfhound, but Caucasian Sheperd and Black Russian Terrier as well.

I tend to agree with all but now I am quite curious about the Vladimir draft, I've never heard of such breed in toy shape but I'd love to know more about it. I am sure it is not one more Chapayev joke. Laughing Are you referring to the Schleich horse below, marketed just as heavy horse? Tell me more please! bounce

I have no idea, honestly, I've seen one picture ages ago (though I'm pretty sure it was here, on STS) but it was specifically "Vladimir Draft", not just any heavy horse. We need someone who knows old Schleich models very well, I guess.

And just look at this dapple bay. Outstanding.

I thought it could be a marketing strategy of Schleich, selling that draft horse as a Vladimir in Russia. Though, now I believe I have found the topic where Sylobe shows one of her Schleich 13222 as a Vladimir.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] If you are referring to this topic, unfortunately this model was never marketed as a Vladimir but as a Shire instead. It is just Silvia that shows it as a Vladimir as her own choice once she tells it doesn't look as a Shire at all. study
By the way, the dapple bay you're showing is really beautiful! Very Happy

Really appreciate new breed, as far as I know it's very first representative of this breed in model horse world.
Its legs could be better defined – most of recent CollectA horses have quite thick legs.
The dark mane is odd, it looks kinda like wild bay more than chestnut.
And it is really a mare? Very Happy
(Most likely on my wishlist anyway)

I have a schleich I show as a Vladimir, one of the oldest heavy horses :)

About the color of this Don horse, well, in fact they are famous because of their bright chestnut coat but the most interesting thing is that among Don horses it´s common to see bright red body with dark mane, sometimes almost black in appearance. The reason is still unknown. So I really like this coat... I don´t know it this was pretended to be this way or it is just casuality, but the most distinctive color of Dun horses is this.

Thank you for the info about typical colour, that's interesting. So it seems they did a good job when chose these colours to combine.
