PostSubject: Four beautiful horses for me   Fri May 13, 2011 7:23 pm

My friends, I'm so happy happy happy! I got four beautiful new old horses and I even named them already, here they are...

This is Blesi the Icelandic horse, whose name means "horse with a blaze" (that white marking on his head). Icelandic horses are often named after a characteristic they have, either in their looks or in their personality, so I'm following the tradition :) I think Blesi is going to be a nice, gentle horse who follows his brother and best friend Gullfaxi EVERYWHERE. This model was only produced for two years so I'm proud to have him in my collection.


So this is Gullfaxi ("golden mane") I love his unusual colour. He's got that twinkle in his eyes that suggests that life around him is never boring, he could be quite a mischievous little chap.


This beautiful French mare is Voulez-Vous. She is very charming, everyone who's seen her just adores her.


Last but not least is Little John, the hard worker who never complains and never lets you down. Schleich calls him a "heavy horse" but I don't think that's a real breed so for me, he's a Suffolk Punch.


These were all in very good condition, even better than I expected. Plus, both the Icelandic horses are Made in Germany, which is cool because most of my collection is Made in China. On the Camargue mare it doesn't say where she was made, it just says Schleich, the year '96 and Germany. The heavy horse is made in China if I remember right.

Congratulations with your fantastic, fine and rare new horses, - Blesi, Gullfaxi, Voulez-Vous and Little John Very Happy flower sunny

How wonderful, I think, too, that Little John is a Suffolk Punch. He is one of my absolute favourites of all the Schleich horses, and I have often wondered what breed he is, - now I know cheers

Perhaps Gullfaxi is more a "Silfurfaxi", as he is siverdappel, - Gullfaxi is usually used for a chestnut horse Wink
But who cares, I once knew a Icelandic horse called "Toyota" , - and he was certainly not a car Laughing Laughing Laughing

Matilda these are beautiful additions, big congratulations!! And I love their names too, very nice cheers cheers Your Camargue mare, she probably was made in Germany. I have a couple of old Schleich, which just say the date and Germany on the bottom. I love having models made in Portugal or Germany bounce

Thanks for the comments, how nice that you like my additions as much as I do :) Little John is also Made in Germany, not in China! I just wanted him to have a proper breed so I went for Suffolk Punch because they are the same colour, but I don't know if Suffolk Punches are allowed to have white markings on their feet scratch Any of my many horse breed encyclopedias wouldn't answer that.

Suffolks are allowed to have a bit white on their legs, but they have not feathers and aren´t as massive as this model is http://www.suffolkhorsesociety.org.uk/the-suffolk-horse/
