Schleich 2013 Customs - Appaloosa Lippi

Well the Lippi was originally going to be bay...then I saw a picture of a pretty knabstrupper and well she sorta changed colour :p

Very happy with her though, she looks a LOT nicer painted up and I am pretty sure you will agree :D

2013 Flagship Horse

Pictures of the 2013 Flagship horse have been released. I'm not keen at all, but maybe that's because I hate that mold...Or it could be the ridiculously bizarre pattern...

First 2013 Schleich Customs

Well the first two are complete and can I say that Haflinger mare looks GORGEOUS when she is all painted up

First up the Halfinger who was done in bay with heavy white and pink roses and plaits.

And second up the Fell who was done to a jet black with a multi-tonal jet black coat and no white

Both are for sale at £18 + postage

Foaly Bosals

I have been making these little things for years. I use them to use up all those spare threads and beads that you end up having lying around!

I made two today in purple, orange and yellow. One to fit the Julip Clydesdale foal and one for the Julip Yearling

Meet Daisy

I have had Daisy for years, she was one of my first models. Anyway as I had to take her out for Breastplate pictures I decided to take a shot of her.

Then I thought I would go and take her out into the snow! Too deep for decent snow pics but still nice to do.


A New Arrival

Meet Auld Lang Syne who arrived this week. I purchased him as part of the Breyer vault sale. He does have one small flaw on his mane but I'm not too worried as this can be easily dealt with!

Brown Breastplate

Finished this nice little English breastplate off today. I decided to do one for a heavy horse, you don't see much heavy horse tack around the place!

2013 Schleich's 'In The Flesh'

I thought I would share some pictures of the 2013 Schleich's that I have just received 'in the flesh'.

First up is the Fell mare:

Pretty plait thing

Now the new Hanovarian mare


I actually really love the mane on this model

And now the Haflinger who is rather pretty actually

Something I Find Interesting

I find genetics very interesting and I find this new discovery very very interesting. So I guess with model horses we don't need to ever test their genetics but in real horses people do! So being able to test these things is great and it leads to further discoveries for tests for all kinds of things from genetic markers for colour to genetic markers for illnesses or deformities.

Halo is another vintage club exclusive and what can I say I'm in love! I am very happy that I have vintage club membership now :D

Breyer Christmas Horse 2013

I have been meaning to share this one for a while!

I love this years horse, I adore the Clock Horse mold despite it's flaws. I particularly like the fact that this years appears to have a bush growing out of his quarters, well why not :p

This is a rather interesting looking Nokota horse. I can't decide if I like him or not...I'll leave it up to you to make your mind up!
