Hello there, let me share feelings of this amazing addition.
In autumn I join group of Czech collectors who were planning to order on MPV together, so we could share the international shipping. I ordered some Stablemates "jewels" and I was thinking about something else. And I decided for Don Johnson. He is beautiful, plus he is LE plus I found his pedigree and realized he is Hanoverian, what is my favourite breed. He arrived last weekend. I'm absolutely in love with him. Photos taken with mobile phone can't do him justice (I should get a proper camera).

He is sculpted by Brigitte Eberl, she is becoming my favourite sculptor. I like his elegant and graceful pose and especially his head. It is just georgeous. Maybe it should be a bit wider, it seems a bit narrow to me, but still very nice head - the shape, the muscles, the wide open nostrils as he breathing in concentrating on trick he performs.
Here is a small walkaround, but the photos a bi blurish, sorry for that:

Paintwork is quite nice, he has some small rubs and shine marks, but nothing terrible. For me, he is perfect combination of a toy and a sculpture: The size is optimal, he doesn't need a lot of space, but he's not tiny, also he doesn't look fragile as Stablemates do, and the material is firmer than on other Bullylands. And moreover he is sculpted by professional and very good sculptor. He is probably my favourite model horse now  I love you
I will make some comparison photos with my other Hanoverian later.

Hello, the snow is gone here, and the weather and light was quite good, so I took some comparison photos of Jonny.

I have only two Bullylands, I don't collect them, but I got the Oldenburger gelding as a gift, so I will keep him. Compared to Don Johnson, he is just a toy, more than model horse:My Don Johnson FRH Photog17

And here some comparison with Schleichs, he is the same size, but more correct, lighter, with thinner legs and proper head.
Here he is with my very first Hanoverian, the 13296 Han. Dressage mare "Lorelei", who started my love for this breed:

And two Exclusives Hanoverians, with 72088 Müller '14 Han. mare "Odessa", they are both imported from Germany:

My two Eberl's models, with Breyer Stablemates Black Andalusian:

And finally, three dressage bay Hanoverians, looking forward to add CollectA '15 Han. mare:

Thanks for your attention ;-)
