2015 Schleich Curly Foal

As promised, here are the photos for the lovely 2015 Schleich Curly Horse Foal.
This lovely foal is a female, although, to be honest, I'd have preferred it to be male. It just feels like there are far too many fillies and very few colts in Schleich's stables. But that's a minor complaint. This girl has a charming palomino coat with the same fuzzy, sheep's wool-like fur as her mother.
 Judging by her dark hooves I'd hazard a guess that her light legs and muzzle are the result of baby pangare (light undersides and areas of soft skin common on foal coats, thought to aid camouflage, that disappear after the foal shed's it's first coat). In other words, she'd probably lose the white legs and muzzle as she gets older and be totally solid like her mother.
 There's a bit of over spray on her mane, but I'm not too worried about that.
 Her tail is a little under sprayed (you can see the base coat showing through here), but again I'm not too bothered by that.
 Like her mother, he hooves are nicely carved with detailed painting. Her logo and text take up the entirety of her belly.
 Again, like her mother she has a sweet face, with totally black eyes and little smile on her lips. Looks like she's planning to get up to mischief :)
Here she is besides her mother. She looks quite big, although it's not really a fair comparison since the foal is standing square whilst the mare isn't. Even so, I don't think the foal is meant to represent a newborn. Since they've both got thick, woolly winter coats, perhaps baby is around 6 to 10 months old?
