So beautiful! Maybe the head a bit small, but if I can I will buy it, I love it! He has a nice canter pose!

Oh, it is wonderful! I also love the pose, the legs, the chest and the small head is a characteristic of modern quarter horses! study Wonderful pictures wonderful life of collectors we have! One thing is for sure, the sculpting of the final figure will be superb! :) cheers Congratulations Anna and Mojo Fun! Very Happy

In shape and position almost the same quality as the other horse Ana...
But my first and direct thought was the same as some other people said here, the head looks to small, even though i am not a horse expert, and quickly did look into pictures of quarterhorse... Rolling Eyes
Quarterhorses do have smaller heads than much other breeds, but the heads seem to be more elongated anyway, so there you could do some work maybe, or is it to late... Laughing
But overall much more quality in compare to other modern brands, so there is a big advantage anyway... Very Happy

Thank You for Your comments and compliments Silvia, Magda, Harriet, Smithyboy, Robert, Willy and Roger Very Happy cheers

Thank You for Your comments about proportions. Well, I think head could be bigger and it wouldn't look bad. But actually when I compare him with photos which I used for reference I'm not sure if there is a difference in proportions Shocked Embarassed The thing which is different for sure is thickness of legs - this is because of PVC production process. I will look at photos again and think, and post some of them later Wink
Willy, to answer Your question, I think it is not too late yet, but to change it even 1mm I must be sure he will look better Cool

Comparing with photos of real animals is usually cruel for the sculpture, I know Embarassed Beautiful muscles, shine of fur, movement, details, that's all things which I wish to make better in future works. Maybe I would have to try also bigger scales to reach better effect in future projects study
But here are some of photos which I use for reference for my work. Some horses on these photos have even smaller head than mine figurine. Also muscles can be really exaggerated but I didn't want to show the "bulldog" type scratch study

I know what you mean, but even in the pics, the head is more elongated, so longer, which makes the head bigger in appearance...
I know, i know Ana, sometimes you need more eyes to make a model perfect, isn't it? Laughing

This is SOO right Willy!! You give me a nice idea. Maybe for 2013 horses I will ask one of our forum horse experts for additional review of figures. Shocked Cool Of course if any of the persons would agree for that bounce

Some members helped a lot, doing their best in the review of the sable and different eyes were seeing the sable in a diferent way. I remember half of the people saying that the body was too long while another half was saying that the body was too short! Laughing That's absolutly normal, is not easy to review a figure from pictures! :) Who knows we are lucky enough to choose a 2013 horse figure and horse experts would elp in the review of future figures. Anyway I'm completly satisfied with the figures I'm saying but I'm not a horses expert, only an animal lover and a lover of wonderful replicas! I love you
For 2012 I'm completly happy with the horses Mojo will release since what would be my choice will be launched in 2012 and I'm almost sure that this breed would win a pole here! Wink

Congratulation Ana, this horse is so lifelike, you could feel the wind around him cheers

About the head, I don't know if it is really too small scratch ... But it is so good to see a model without a too big head Laughing Laughing Laughing

Thanks for Your compliments Christophe! Maybe it's because of windy weather here cheers

I'm looking and looking at this model, and now I think that head is acceptable proportion-wise. QHs generally have a bit smaller heads comparing to body than most of other breeds. Now when I think about it, I've often thought that QHs are small-headed.
But if it's still possible to change the prototype and elongate the head a bit, it won't do harm to the model :)

About big-headed models - this may also be the cause why the head of this model seems to be too small Laughing

I´m not an expert but I could help you if you want me to do :)

QH have smaller heads because they are hypermuscled, so the head seems to be smaller. Most of those QH with small heads would have normal ones if they hadn´t bull-size muscles :)

To me, the size of the head seems in proportion with the rest of the horse. Quarter Horses tend to be all different sizes nowadays.

Can't wait to get these horses ! I think this one would be good for barrels :)

Ana, I think the horse's head is fine. Having owned Quarter horses and Arabs for the last twenty five years here is my two cents:

1. Your two horse models for 2012 Mojo are a 100% improvement over the first mojo horses.

2. Your model of the QH looks like a young immature horse. AS in many animals the head is one of the last things to mature as a horse grows.

3. There has been a change in the QH over the last 25 years where the head has not been as large as in the past.

If you need any help in the future in reviewing things I would be more than willing to help. AS you know, I am a big fan of yours!
You even inspired me to try my hand at sculpting and that is all that I have been doing for the last 24 hours. Early results have been mixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
