Thanks Phil, WH and Amy. I couldn't paint it today in the end, ran out of time, so I will do it tomorrow now. It will be the same colour as the Schleich one, so that they match.

Good luck with the paintwork, Harriet. I'm sure it will turn out to be another gem, as all your previous ones! rendeer

I carved a little off the horns as I thought they were too thick at the ends.
