Now it's time to the arabian horse.
As I wrote in the other topic (see hannoverian horse) I bought this one few months ago and now it is time to show him to everyone here in the forum.
I think Arabian horse is one of the weakers figurine in Recur collection. I think this is a same, because breds as arabian or andalusian (the other one which I think is not as good as it should be) are "must it" breds for any brand.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
As you can see, the position of the animal is quite strange. I have to admit that it doesn't mean it is bad. We have hundreds of horse models and trying to do something new is always welcome. But, for this model, I'm not sure what the horse is doing.
You can also notice that the horse doesn't look like and arabian horse. At least, not the "show" arabian we all have in mind. Although the head is small, it hasn't got the classic arabian head. And the neck is quite wide for this bred. The coat (chestnut) I think is maybe a bit risky, but it is find anyway.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The animal has some marks in his legs. These marks are fine, giving a "colour touch" to one model which is a bit monochromatic. As we see in other Recur models, the braids are pasted to the neck, using the same colour. Here also you can see the weird position the horse takes, with a strange angle.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I don't know why, but this horse is angry. I put him in a different paddock, staying alone. I don't want to have any accident with other horses [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Bad bad bad... horrible marks in the legs. And I'm afraid if legs won't be able to break away in the future...[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
As I wrote in the hannoverian post, I'd like to stay the animals in their plastic bases to conserve them better. Here you can see that the horse can stay on his own but the balance is a bit precarious. One hoof is in the air and, other (the one which is making a diagonal) is not 100% touching the floor. Here also you can see the ugly and horrible glue marks.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I took this picture because I think it could help to see the Recur size. These horses are just a bit smaller than Classic Breyers. Here you can see the Recur (second) with a Papo TB foal (first animal) Breyer Classic (third) and Secretariat Breyer Traditional (forth)
