PostSubject: My collection of ponies and small horses - UPDATED (14th April)   Sat Jan 26, 2013 5:11 pm

This little guy - the Shetland gelding from 1996 - was my very first Schleich horse.

Soon afterwards I started collecting more models from the same brand... and haven't stopped ever since. So far I have collected every Schleich horse and pony that was advertised on the catalogue since 1997. I'm only aware of three older figures I still miss, plus "specials" such as the "superpinto" - but I am not actively looking for them.

I'm more interested in focusing on recent models and expanding my herd, and acquiring compatible figures from other brands (like Papo, Safari, etc) as well.

I'd like to share some pics of my herd with you. Here are some photos of my pony collection. (Light and heavy horses deserve a thread of their own - ETA: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and draught horses [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).

Hope you enjoy! Please note the new Icelandic stallion and foal are not shown - yet! tongue Coming soon!

Wonderful collection cheers

But Icelandic horses are NOT ponies !
They are small horses, just like the original Arabians Wink

I know that in competitions they would be named ponies because of their size, but Iceys don`t compete in normal shows, they have their own, because they are an original, 5 gaited breed, and ( Untill recently, when the Europeans began "improving" them ) they did not change for over 1000 years, - 50 years ago they were almost exactly like the horses the viking rode on Very Happy

That's true. That's why I wrote "ponies and small HORSES" in the title. :)

I love Icelandic horses, it's probably one of my favourite breeds, because they are an ancient one and so different from others in many ways (including their unique tölt gait. If I could adopt a horse, it would probably be either an Icelandic or a fjord.

Oh, your picture shows perfectly how richly sculpted is the Safari Icey! Beautiful figure indeed. Very Happy
About the Schleich new Icelandic horse I have to confess. Usually Schleich horses, doesn't matter how accurate they are or not, are usually very beautiful. ... except this one! Laughing Don't take inelegant my comment, it is just a personal opinion. I have myself the old version which I like best. flower
An interesting thing is that the Safari horse is supposed to be a 1:24 scale figure, I guess. So it is somewhat surprising that it fits nicely with the schleich figure and is not smaller. Very Happy
Welsh pony is very cute, congratulations and thanks for sharing. Very Happy

My first Mojö horse is here! Cool Cool


Fjord mare - Mojö Fun

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], on Flickr

The quality is terrific, it's by far the best model horse in m collection. Unfortunately its size is a big too big compared to my other models, meaning I can't really display her with my other horses. It's the only thing that is currently preventing me from buying more Mojö horses. No

Congratulations for your new Fjord. Actually, Mojo horses are not large when compared with Schleich. The Fjord is an exception, I guess. scratch
Also the CollectA Fjord is much larger than Schleich's. Very Happy

The Mojo Fjord is just fantastic. A great choise ! She was also my first and, so far, only Mojo. I do think she looks lovely displayed together with my Schleich horses, but may be because I don't know much about Fjords actual sizes Razz
