PostSubject: 3 special horses!   Sat Sep 10, 2011 3:32 pm

I week or so ago I saw for sale on a model horse forum 3 Schleich horses for a ridiculously inexpensive price.
They arrived yesterday and much to my delight they are all in lovely condition, 2 are made in Germany, and 1 made in Portugal! The first Portugal Schleich to my collection! They even had the original tags, but I took them off.

First is this LOVELY chestnut mare. She is made in Germany.


Next is the Lipizzaner gelding. I already had this figure, but my other is made in China.


Here shown side by side with the China figure. You can see the Germany figure is more silvery in color and he has no shoes, where the China model has painted on shoes!


And lastly, but not leastly, is the black rearing Morgan Stallion. Made in Portugal! :)


I am so pleased to have these horses in my collection! And many thanks for letting me share. :)

Both were made in China.

Kristie, when I saw there was a new topic from you my hands shook when clicking to see Shocked Pictures from Kristie bounce bounce

And I was not disapointed, they are WONDERFUL cheers

Beautyful horses , and good price, what a great find Very Happy flower
And then even a variant, it couldn`t be better sunny

So funny that you and Silvia have 3 variants between you.
My single one is silvery, has shoes and is made in Germany.

Ohhhh, dear ! Now I will have to be sensible and not start looking for a variant Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes What a Face

Thank you Silvia, Susanne, and Robert!

It is so interesting to find the variants! The two Lipizzaners are my first official variants! :)

Now I will tell you how much I paid for them. $8.00 USD shipping INCLUDED for the three. So after her shipping costs, I actually got them for $3.25 USD. I don't know how that translates to Euros, but it's still cheap! :)

She had them advertised as "remake or toy quality", but they were in new condition with the original tags! So I was very pleased to find such a bargain!
