Carola was asking for more pictures of the new Shires.
Værsgo, Carola, her er lidt hestebilleder  Very Happy

Of course I will be happy if others take a look also  Laughing  Laughing

Here we have the whole family.
In general the heads are too large, but that is Schleich for you, isn`t it ?
One should think they were not from the same brand, as they are made from very differnet material, - or perhaps it is because my stallion is from China and the others from Germany  scratch

The stallion is a beautyful model, but IMHO he is not powerful for a shire stallion.
The only thing that is large is his head  Rolling Eyes
Even his testicles are so small, that he would not be approved for stud, I am sure  Shocked
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He is made from a very soft, rubbery material, which I think I have never seen in a Schleich model before.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He has a very nice head, if only it suited the body better.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Here we have the mare. Her body build is better, as I think a Shire should be .

Why does she have yellow "beard" ?
This is a downright error, - the beard does NOT have the same colour as mane/tail, shame on you, Schleich  Suspect
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She has the largest muzzle I have ever seen in a horse , - and PINK  Shocked
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The material is not bendable as the material of the stallion, but the surface is sort of chalky.
To me this is the worst, it gives me goose flesh to touch her  affraid
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The chalky skin get dirty very easily. She has been lying in her klastic bag, and only taken out for photograpy, still somehow she got something black on her from somewhere , and I can`t get it off  Crying or Very sad
Perhaps I put her down on a newspaper ? pale  
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But let`s see the filly and give this story a happy end .
I think she is absolutely wonderful  cheers
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Look at her, she is probably about 3 months old, and shedding her fuzzy baby-coat !
I have never seen that in a model befor, and I am absolutely in LOVE with this little girl  I love you  I love you
The only minus is that the tail is white, - it should be the same colour as the mane .
In a foal there can be quite some white hairs in the tail of a bay, but the tail is clearly black.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Isn`t she a sweetheart ?  cheers
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thankyou for looking.
I hope I have not been too harsh, y`all are very wellcome to disagree  Wink

I love the foal, I really like the stallion, but wish is head was smaller. As far as his male parts the are probably smaller because Schleich probably gets complaints from people claiming that they are too "revealing" or whatever for children. I like the mare better than in her catalog pic, but she still isn't my favorite model. But that little foal is really cute, and I like how they made her hair look like it is shedding its baby fur. That is one thing I like that Schleich is doingnow, little cow licks and things in their models hair, and you can see how the fur changes direction. COngrats on your new models Susanne, and great pics.

I have not seen the Shires in person yet,but looking at your pictures...I like them Very Happy I am sad to here about the Shire mares chalky-nis Crying or Very sad But I just know i'll buy her anyway Rolling Eyes I love the pinking on her nose and I LOVE the foal! The baby fur shedding is so realistic! And for the stallion...let's just say he's not my favorite.I don't like his coat color,it looks to dusty and not glossy/shiny like real ones,but maybe he just took a roll (again,i'll prob still get it).

Tusind tak Susanne cheers Thanks a lot Susanne, for these great pictures and comments/opinions. They do tell a lot, as I've had these very mixed feelings about these new shires. It's such a shame that Schleich has to make those way too big heads, since it doesn't add anything to the figure, even a clever kid would notice the disproportion I think.

That the stallion suddently is bendy concerns me, quite a lot. I hope it's a one-timer.. I really like the hard material of the Schleich models these days. To me it gives them a feel of being collectibles. But that's just me. Being bendy might also require the paint to be special, since I suppose it could crack if it does not have the ability to be strecthed...

Beside that, the stallion isn't attractive to me. In the pictures the disproportion of the head makes him look like a cartoon character.. Not that there's anything wrong with that.. Just I thought Schleich were going for at least more realism than cartoonish.. And then I come to think of the ol' shire stallion, who I think posseses that power you speak of Susannne. Even though the new guy runs fast with windy hair, the ol' guy's gonna win the race...

The mare is somehow growing on me, and I look very much forward to when she reaches the stores, so I can see her in person. She's a cartoon too, but it's so obvious I may forgive that, and as mentioned in another thread, she does look like a fairy horse who, for some unknown reason, escaped and jumped into Schleich human world... The model is quite provocative, and seems to devide the crowd, which I kind of like. (Maybe I should go watch some "Glamour", since it seems I lack the drama Razz )

Now the foal is very sweet, and she seems to add something new to the group of Schleich foals.

Here's Álvaros photo from another thread. I think it's quite relevant and interesting. I hope it's ok I post it on here Álvaro Rolling Eyes

Susanne, thanks for presenting these controversial Schleich figures. As I suspected, the cartoonish and fantasied mare will be a success and very appreciated among general buyers and also collectors. There is a kind of hidden love for that figure. She was not made to be realistic, she was made to look cute and pretty. Every detail of that figure is studied to give an actrative fantasied looking, so I don't think in these mistakes as mistakes but only as pure exercises of design that are traditional in toy industry. They will work, of course anyone will find a good excuse to buy it when the real excuse is the most acceptable of all. When we buy a figure it is because we like it, isn't it? Very Happy
My only problem is that when these exercises are successful, it means that the brand will continue towards the toyish and fantasied way and people can say good bye to realistic Schleich horses. They will continue being the best loved but not the best for sure. Very Happy
It is also a shame that Schleich is saving in manufacturing quality, I think this stallion is more expensive than others and with a lesser quality, that is really dangerous for the brand. CollectA horses are getting the atention of traditional Schleich collectors and only the material is being an obstacle to these figures once the sculpting and poses are much better in my opinion.
Honestly, I like the action of this animal, if the head was smaller and the chest more powerful, all the figure would win a lot with it, the strength of the creature would result more noticiable and I am sure that the collectors that love a childish looking on figures would appreciate it better too.
The fur detail of the foal is really great. I like that particular characteristic of the figure. flower Very Happy

You pretty much summed up my mixed feelings towards Schleich at the moment. I've been a very loyal Schleich fan for a very long time, almost twenty years. There was a time when I regarded Schleich models as the best. Especially in the early to mid-noughties, when I could see their progressive improvement in quality year after year. But it's been a few years now that I see the quality is somehow decreasing. Some new figures are amazing compared to their older counterparts - but many others have such awkward proportions, not to mention they are so easily damaged/scratched now.

For me it's only a matter of time. I'll continue buying Schleichs for as long as they keep up with my quality and realism standards and I can't find anything better. But meanwhile I'm keeping my eye open and brands willing to put more care into their figures will most definitely find in me a happy buyer and collector.

Yes indeed, and it can be quite healthy also I think, to hear someones opposite opinion and why they think so, and allow oneself to actually listen. I've learned alot from that. I mean also, in real life Razz

All that manipulation and psychology which you speak of is very interesting, and is a thing we got to keep in mind, unless one like to be seduced ofcourse.. But aren't we all seduced by each figure we choose, realistic looking or not? Rolling Eyes

There's another thing though. I've got an impression of, that people here (myself is no exception), can be very attracted to a figure that is in many ways absolutely horrible.

But certainly is seems Schleich has a cuteness spree going on.

Surely we can and should feel atracted for a figure even when it is not accurate. I feel it too. If on next time I visit a Schleich shop with my niece, if she sees that mare and wants it I'll do anything to demote her from that idea. I'll surely buy it. flower
However, if she asks me what breed is it, I'll reply that this is a Shire. If she asks me how do I know it, I'll say that I've read it on catalogue. :lol:The focus of that figure is on cuteness, lovely eyes, colors, braids, pink ribbons, not in the most important that is a wonderful horse. So a Shire is a white horse with braids. flower
Why is it wrong? Schleich describe their figures on catalogues as realistic and result of carefull researches. Actually, most are closer to toyish series than animal replicas. They are interesting to captivate young people to this world but I'm not sure of their educational value. I love much more real things than fantasied. I believe that a good and realistic figure is more atractive and educative than a romanticized figure. flower

If Schleich is saying that out loud and directly, yes, then I agree very much, there's something wrong here with their policy. (Like with the new seals, they are cute in real life - but not THAT cute...)

Well, the braids are realistic, when googling horse braids, there seems no limit how crazy those horse owners can be with their decoration. The biggest problem here has to be the way too large head...
And as Susanne mentions, the 'beard' should have been white. Bad research Schleich! - even having in mind how many horses they've made over the years...

Yes, now see also the narrow chest and expressiveless legs. I know the CollectA Shire mare is not as prety because it is not white but compare proportions, chest, muscular expression. Very Happy

Those CollectAs look Amazing! But it looks like they could have better paint. The black one though is Shocked I love you drunken ME WANT bounce The realism in the sculpt here is far FAR better than the Schleich. No forced cuteness.

As you've mentioned before, Roger, I see the point in Schleich horse collectors being interested in the CollectAs. The models are really neat, also the upcoming 1213s look very promising, with dynamic poses and a lot of life. They seem to have an elegance that the Schleich lack.

I wish CollectAs were available in a store near me, but unfortunately they're very hard to find... Then I'll have to go online as the very last solution.

Thank you for openening my eyes with this pic. Looks like CollectAs are better than what I used to believe.

Black Collecta Shire is beautiful. For the Schleich white princess, I checked at our store today and the German made is made of hard plastic like the Hannoverian mare, not soft like made of China. Not just the accuracy of the models, the biggest concern is the quality of the materials.

White Shire horses can have color on their "chin fur".And if the pink rubber bands in her braids REALLY bother you,put black paint over it or something Wink Also I don't think Schleich has gone to much cutesy,I really like the Shire mare,she is realistic because people do braid horse manes in real life ya know.Just pretend a girl owns her :)

Those CollectAs look Amazing! But it looks like they could have better paint. The black one though is Shocked I love you drunken ME WANT bounce The realism in the sculpt here is far FAR better than the Schleich. No forced cuteness.

As you've mentioned before, Roger, I see the point in Schleich horse collectors being interested in the CollectAs. The models are really neat, also the upcoming 1213s look very promising, with dynamic poses and a lot of life. They seem to have an elegance that the Schleich lack.

I wish CollectAs were available in a store near me, but unfortunately they're very hard to find... Then I'll have to go online as the very last solution.

Thank you for openening my eyes with this pic. Looks like CollectAs are better than what I used to believe.

You're welcome. CollectA figures would be superb if their manufacturing quality was similar to what Schleich used us some years ago. Yesterday I watched in real the Shire mare and no doubts it is a huge exercise of childish cuteness. Of course the figure will result very atractive to young children but far from the realism we can see on CollectA Shire. I think Schleich didn't want to make it realistic but only atractive. The figure is somewhat soft like CollectA figures and it is huge as we can see on Alvaro picture. No surprise once we are talking about Shires. Very Happy
The curious point is that I've found it in a kiosk where we need to ask the owner to show it on our hands once they are in a display that we cannot reach. I asked for the large white horse and the owner to confirm my request asked:
- you mean the Barbie horse? Laughing It was funny to hear because many of us used that designation here and someone not related with collecting had the same feeling. flower
Good or not is already a remarkable figure and will not pass indifferent in this hobby. Very Happy

Susanne, I think your picture is full of glamour and you got precisely the spirit of that figure. There is always a place to everything. flower

"Faire pendant", I guess! scratch geek
It is nice to compare both figures, both have large eyes, beautiful hairs, long necks, dreamful looking. I only can't see the beard on doll! Wink

Not happy with your Shires... Not sure if I should buy them... I´ll end up buying them anyway xD The filly is the only one I really feel I want her.

Look at her, she is probably about 3 months old, and shedding her fuzzy baby-coat !
I have never seen that in a model befor, and I am absolutely in LOVE with this little girl  I love you  I love you
The only minus is that the tail is white, - it should be the same colour as the mane .
In a foal there can be quite some white hairs in the tail of a bay, but the tail is clearly black.

Well, it could be a great explanation for the white tail + dark mane... Sooty chestnut, or flaxen. In chestnuts, sooty generally shows as a dark and homogeneous coat, but sometimes it is limited to mane, tail or both, giving the horse nearly black manes and/or tails and leaving the body with the "original" color. Flaxen produces blond mane and tail, nearly white, and it´s more common to see the effect on both mane and tail. However, sometimes only mane or tail is affected by that. I think this foal could be a combination of both: sooty mane and flaxen mane.  Or maybe she´s an extreme Gulastra plume Wink

You know what.. I've actually made my first online purchase, which contains the Black CollectA Shire among some Papo and Mojo that I've always wanted(brands which are nearly impossible to find around here, so online was my last option, though I will always prefer seeing the figurines IRL first.). I'm looking so much forward to receive them!

The observation of the non-collectors reaction is quite a proof of what Schleich obviously accomplished with this lady.. So, what was your personal impression of her? Could she awaken that hidden love? Suspect Razz
I'm again very concerned when you speak of her being made in a softer material than what Schleich usually do... I suppose she was Made in China?

After I entered this forum I've got quite some wakeup- calls, and I've started researching more about, for instnce, horse breeds and correct proportion and so on. Before that, I just bought the Schleich horses and other animals because of them being beautiful to my eyes. I used to know nothing about horses, but now it seems relevant... I've got to know what I'm talking about!

And that's one crazy picture Susanne... I do almost feel sorry for Shire Lady though Razz

Sorry for delay replying. Yes, the Shire mare is Made in China. The plastic is lighter but not irritating. I think that all figures deserve to be loved. So that lady is not an exception. flower
Collecting figures just because we find them beautiful is as nice as collecting them to learn more about the wonderful world of animals. We only have to find which way give us more pleasure. :)
My way of collecting is like any figure is a book about Nature. I always want to learn something new with it. To understand why it has some characteristics, etc. So, the aestetical subject is not enough for me. However, when I am in doubt with 2 figures, the one more atractive wins. It only happens because I can't afford them all or I'll collect them all. Laughing affraid
I think you are already enough envolved with that lovely mare and I suspect you'll enjoy her. So you can compare with the CollectA black Shire. Remember, when we are used with a brand, we'll find something weird in our first figures from other brands. It almost always happens. Most people is used with Schleich and it is hard sometimes to accept the different manufacturing characteristics of other brands and even their style. Also, some Breyer collectors, sometimes cannot accept Schleich figures easily due to their cute style. Personally, I find Breyer sculptings more interesting but Schleich figures have much more playability. Very Happy
It will be great to see your new figures and your impressions about them. flower Very Happy

I don't think that was a delayed reply, more the opposite Very Happy

I'll post pics of my new ones as soon as I get them Very Happy

The Breyers look very artistic.. Never seen one in person though.

Yes, like you being curious about the 'story' of your chosen figurines, I think is a good thing cheers

Yes, you might be right with people having a hard time getting used to another brand. I do have the lil' CollectA polar bear cub(I found him in a bookstore once by coincidence, where they had a few CollectAs). And I think his quality is very fine and he can definitely compete with Schleich. Mighty fine sculpt and paint(even the yellowish has been added to his fur, like polar bears have. The Schleich Polar Bear doesn't have that realistic detail).

If you accept the yellowish color in a polar bear, so you are ready to collect all major brands. Very Happy
If you want to sell a polar bear make it white and if you want to sell a pig make it very pink. Those are some design rules among these brands. There are some delicious exceptions. You're right, the fur of polar bears is hollow and uncolored over a black skin. It is impossible to do in terms of manufacturing but they often doesn't look white, mainly adultes after a good meal! Laughing In the little cute polar bear cub below, you can see that Schleich hasn't even painted the dark marks we can see in polar bears ppaw pads. The figure resulted beautiful and production is easier. However, I think the CollectA is also beautiful and has something more to tell. tongue flower

I'm more disturbed by the drunk little polar bear next to him.
How did he manage to get his paws on that bottle of schnaps?
And why did he have to drink it all by himself?
He could've shared some of it with the fox.

The fox clearly needs it more. lol! lol! lol!

Pure white polar bears and hyper pink pigs sounds like caricatures Rolling Eyes the CollectA cub actually has black markings under his paws Cool His Schleich foster-mum has black paws too though,

I must say, it is very difficult to ignore that fox Shocked I've seen that photo before, and that's one crazy story it can tell.. Like Bloodrayne does Razz

Thanks for the pictures Susanne.
I really like the Shires both, but not as a normal Schleich model. I like them as a customizing model. They can be customized as some beautifull Tinkers! (Oh boy, there's the Tinker-crazy girl again Razz )

But still, I would only buy them for customizing.. My plan was to go collecting CollectA horses, but they are really hard to get and oh well, I can use the money that I usually spent on Schleich a lot.

Edit: Just read the posts on the second page and I thought it will look nice to get Tinky in this conversation.
Even though Tinky isn't a Shire, she also has a beard. Yes, they can be multicolored! (Her's is black/white) It's true, the beard is the same color as the coat/fur. But the mane color of the horse is totally wrong too. Never saw a white horse with such yellow manes Razz And when they are yellow, they are just dirty!

Ohhh, I can`t get enough of your wonderful Tinky-pictures cheers cheers

I am happy that you agree that the beard should have the same colour as the coat, unless it is dirty Laughing Laughing
But there is a differnece between that white of the mane/tail of the shire and Tinky.
The Shire mare was probably borne bay, and is turning "grey".
Two blacks couldn`t have a bay foal together.

So perhaps she is in a stage of "greying" ( They call it greying even if it is usually whitening in the long run, just in case somebody doesn`t know ), where the mane/tail is still a bit darker than the body...but not THAT yellow drunken
