At last Collecta Made an Icey ! cheers
A beautyful, wonderful, blue dun stallion going lovely tölt Very Happy Applause

Ohh, I have been looking so much forward to see this model, and I was not disappointed  cheers

Knowing this breed so well, of course I can find a few little things, but don't get me wrong : It is the best model of an Icelandic horse, I have ever seen  drunken
But let me start with the few little things, that do not completely correspond with my ideal :

Well, as usual  there is the pear-shaped body, wich this breed certainly does not have ....
and perhaps as a result of that, he has narrow shoulders, and the neck and head are not sturdy enough for a full grown stallion.
( Only a full grown horse can go that kind of tölt )

The other thing is that his hind legs are spread far out to the sides. I fast tölt, the horse mainly carries his body on his hind legs, and I can't imagine how he can do that in such a speed with his hind legs like that.

Ok, the dorsal stripe does not follow the dorsal line, but that is such a small thing that I am almost ashamed to mention it.

Now, forget all the small minusses, and enjoy this gorgeous model , even if the pictures may not do it justice Wink :

Considering it is a Deborah Mc Dermott's sculpt...

... yes, it is. Wink  I hop Deborah reads this:

I hope she is aware of the importance of this praise, mainly when it is Susanne the quoted person.
Maybe Deborah will only ask... "why is this Schleich figure used for comparison?" It is probably the few Icelandic horses I could never guess the breed if it was not written on catalogue. The earlier version or Safari's would surely deserve the portrait.
Thanks for this excellent walk around Susanne, surely a great figure of your beloved horse breed. Very Happy

Thankyou very much, dear Roger Very Happy

I showed the picture with the Schleich horses, because they are also new for 2018, but it is a good idea to compare with Safari's horse, which is also a great model :

Not the best picture, but as we see, these two are very different ! Wink

Thanks Susanne, that additional comparison picture is very informative. Although they have a similar pose, their proportions are quite distinct. Both have a very traditional Icey look.
