I don’t collect these (but happily admire them as I go for MLP) but I’m disturbed at the fact they couldn’t make the forelock of hair and just did a mold for it. How tacky and cheap of the company. I’m a lot more triggered by that than them reusing an old mold. Lol

(Also, I guess Cecilia gets a horse now too?)

Its one of my pet peeves about the line. Its not the reuse of a mould that bugs me. But the reuse of that particular mould. I've had two Chica Linda posed horses come temporarily through my hands and aesthetically, its got all kinds of wrong. A too small head, back legs are placed lower then the front, flank and haunches are off, swan necked and the barrel is too big.

I understand that they aren't breyer or Schleich or safari ltd. But many of their horse moulds have something wrong.

Junipero mould has a weak tail that could easily be snapped off by a rougher child

Equellus mould has an absurdly small head

Flaca mould has no hooves and the feathers are jagged

Boomerang mould has a swollen face on one side

Spirit Jr. mould has bad seams on the face

Liberty mould has the jaw and neck into a partially melded mass

Small horses are awful, but I don't bother with them

The Stable Horse mould has the tail a bit too high up on the rear

The Tiller mould is the only one thus far, free from issue and nitpick

The ones I've not examined out of package are the big eating Spirit, the running mould, the Feed n Nuzzle Mare and Foal and the Pepper mould.
