Aren't they all kind of mean-looking? Very Happy

Congratulations Kristie! :)
The typical cow personality of Schleich figures results perfect in cows! What a Face
Unfortunately they should not use the same expression in hyenas, lions, etc Wink

I saw in a local shop what I think that was a Papo Limousine cow and I loved it a lot! Do you know it? :)

Thanks everyone!

Roger, I have only seen photos of the Limousine Papo, but it looks VERY nice! I have good friends that used to breed real Limousines. They now crossbreed them with Angus.

Ooh, those are beautiful cows! Is it me, or has Schleich's cow sculpting improved dramatically these last few years?

Roger, I'm not sure my models could do that. Besides, I don't have any Limousine. Wink The real crosses that I saw looked just like Angus, but a little bit smaller.

Sumo, I don't really have any of the old cattle to compare, but I think Schleich cows are among the best! The only other brand I've seen up close is Safari, and the sculptures are nice, but the finish work doesn't begin to compare.

Congrats Kristie!

Currently look like Schleich cow is on the lead and I also looking forward at the Papo Simmental Bull. As on the photo it look good.

I love the third photo where the family comes together!!

Kristie, the shop lents me the cow to show in the forum!
That's the Papo cow I loved a lot but I' not a cow's expert: pale
So, let's look at the cow!!! pig

Harriet and Kristie, you like here why, because is cute or do you think she is realistic???
She as a very different stile from Schleich cows, is very muscular, it is beef cattle, anyway it looks Schleich never had this kind of cattle in its range!
Here with the Nayab sow! pig

I think the Papo figures have a bit of an "antique" looking charm about them. She's not particularly cute, but cute compared to the Schleich cow. In my opinion. :)

She does have faults with the sculpting, but I think she's quite realistic.
