Now Im curious about how consequent schleich will be with the braids. Will there be Hippos with braids? Or will there be dogs with funny bows on their heads?
If there would be just one "Show-horse" it would have been ok, even it would have been a bit over the top. But when every horse is supposed to be somehow "special", is there any horse special? I dont think so... Suspect

In my opinion the Shire stallion is gorgeous Laughing , the Appaloosa stallion is looking good also Sad(o)): (The Fell pony mare is also not bad.)

It seems the Appaloosa mare is almost the same mold as the TWH mare. scratch

I think I will buy all the new Schleich horses to have a complete collection, but the Schleich horses miss the spirit and the energy of the Collecta horses Sad .

I agree, Im not crazy about the shire mare but like HorseFriendzy said she does have a charm about her. I love the Shire stallion! Its such a beautiful pose and it looks like Im going to have to start collecting horses again! Very Happy Razz

First picture I found on google while searching 'appaloosa':

I now understand why they discounted the clydales and brought the shires back in, because it is no point having two horse families that look very much like each other Wink

Has anyone else noticed that the new Lippizaner foal is the old Percheron foal? But with a different mane and tail,maybe a different pose? Suspect

I noticed that it is very very similar. I do like most of the new models, for different reasons, but many I probably won't end up buying, unless I change my mind when they retire. With the little lippizanner foal, I feel like they just need to stop being lazy (modeling so many "new" figures after past ones) and figure out how to make a model unique. I still feel like they went a little far with introducing so many white horses, and horses with braids. But as I have said before, that is just my opinion, I don't mean to make anyone feel bad, or offend anyone... just so ya know. :)

I totally agree with you... It looks like Schleich sculptors are pretty "lazy" in creating new poses...

I think they are only very similar. The Perchy foal is looking to its right, this one is looking to its left. But yes, they look very very similar.

Oh damn, I just lost my night's sleep now because I found these pictures Razz (it's 2.24 in the morning right now). I'm so so so excited I can't possibly sleep! I really like them all, some more than others but I think the ones I like the least will look better in real life. It often happens.
They've finally realized that the beautiful thing about horses (among other things) is that a big animal can move so elegantly. Out of 14 horses, 9 are in a moving pose, progress yay cheers
My favourites, based on the pictures, are: Shire stallion, Appaloosa mare and Hannover mare. My jaw just dropped when I saw that Shire stallion. I actually like the braids. Free, flowing manes are beautiful of course, but braids are beautiful too. The Lipizzaner mare is my least favourite model (as someone mentioned, what the heck happened to her forelock???) but I like her braid :) The braids on the Haflinger are a bit random though, you wouldn't usually braid a Haflinger as far as I know...
Seems to be a minority opinion here, but I think the Shire mare is adorable Very Happy A bit too slender, but then again the picture might lie. I was really hoping they'd make a white Shire because that's a colour you don't often see, but in Britain they traditionally use white Shires (or grey, to use the correct term) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It is always hard to comment these kind of toys! Kids love them, find them everywhere, children are usually very attached to brands and it is obvious the enthusiasm among them. Schleich is turning like a bad music that is only a hit because we hear it everywhere. bom
That's natural, I don't think Schleich sculptors are lazy, I am even more convinced that they make figures only thinking how appealing they are for kids and consequently for older collectors. I see that here, those that work with horses and know perfectly how they are, can see clearly that these horses are not made to be realistic. Sad
The large heads, chubby legs, fantasied eyes continue, this year even more with all these overdose of braids. I understand, anytime I go to a Schleich shop, the Andalusian mare is the horse that gives more enthusiasm to kids and their mothers. But this is exagerated and looks very unnatural.
I'm not knowledgeable about horses. I don't want to say that the Shire foal looks ridiculous because I have a huge respect for those who sculpt them, but Schleich is a brand that says that is educational and that makes the figures to be realistic, isn't it?
I'm sure the Shire mare will be a big success but that is not almost a Barbie horse, that is really a Barbie horse, withe or grey if you prefer, with these braids and even some eyeliner to highlight the eyes. geek It makes me feel how far feminine goes the design of this brand and makes me think how would feel a boy showing its new Shire mare to his friends.
The Shire stallion has a nice pose, very common in other brands, but the head is larger than the neck and not all the movement of the horse is coerent.Is it because of these heads that they are considered heavy horses? Wink
Appies are not appaloosas, only in color, that's evident even for me and the Lipizanner is the first Lippy that I see that is very ugly. In this case, the appealing design doesn't worked.
The Haflinger even looks to have the left leg longer than the right leg but it is surely the picture.
I understand why kids love them but nothing to learn with these figures, only some more for a world of fantasy. I only hope that Wildlife is not so childish. I still believe Schleich is a brand of animal replicas and not one more brand of plastic toys.
Sorry also for my long and late comment but it only means that the brand still deserves some attention from me.

But sculptors are responsible for conformational correctness - and majority of new Schleich horses lack it, IMO.

Barricade, at least someone that agrees with me. I also think that it is an intentional decision and not incapacity from the sculptors. I'll call them sculptors and not artists because when someone is subject of managers decisionsthe sculptor is not making Art.
I know you are someone very close to the brand and mainly a collector of fantasy figures. Anyway, you can see, in this figure, one of the most appreciated here, that it couldn't be the work of an artist. Who decided to make such a large head in this horse? To me it looks a donkey head. Who decided to make such huge eyes and nostrils? Doesn't it look more toyish with these characteristics? And the chest, who decided to narrow and misrepresent it when in the real animal you can see that it gives the all the strength and nobility to the horse? I'll not talk about the lack of movement on tail, weird feathers, short body, etc. I'll let it to experts.
Who decided? The extra creative managers....

I think the hair of the head and tail is the problem. Rolling Eyes
is so unreal. Crying or Very sad
Nostrils are well made. sunny
But who made this model is not creative Evil or Very Mad brand pays for copying the idea of a member of this forum. Wink
I do not seem very creative to see an image of a fantastic horse and manufacture modele as in the photo. Suspect scratch
Not very creative. Neutral
I hope Bilara is something different from what I draw. Razz

Think of it as art work,it doesn't have to be perfect :).I am very happy about the new horses.But when someone points out whats wrong with em you're kind of like "Oh " pale .And I know the Shire mare isn't all that great, but she looks like she's going to be loaded into the trailer for a show or somethin' with all them braids Wink. And the rest of the horses for 2013 look great .It's better than last year :), cause the Icelandic stallion looks kinda weird cyclops.And you don't have to buy them just to keep up on your collection,that would be a big waste of money Wink.

Well, even though new Schleich horses are rather freaky, and all of us hope they'd become better the next year, nothing would change, I guess Rolling Eyes Why should they produce better molds while people still get even these horses, anyway? They may not like them, but many of them will but the figures in any occasion (to complete the collection, for ex.) And some collectors are even satisfied with the quality and the design of these new Schleich figures. Our Russian youngest horsegirls cannot wait to buy them! Rolling Eyes
So there's no need for Schleich to change the strategy Suspect
