I recently featured my Pink Ribbon Stablemate, Courage, in a post and mentioned that I was thinking of getting the new decorator Horse Crazy Stablemates. CWS Stables & Studio very kindly did a review of her models to help my make my decision, and it convinced me to go ahead. So now, Courage has a herd :)
These are the 6 individual Stablemates from the Horse Crazy lineup. To keep with the theme that Courage started, I've given them all emotive based names.
And finally, this is Trust In Yourself, or Trust; the frosted lilac Walking Arabian stallion. Seen on his own it's easy to mistake his colour for pink, but when you put him with Bliss his purple tones become apparent.
Overall, I'm happy with these models. It would have been nice if they had a bit of detailing on their bodies, like Courage, or even just had their eyes painted so they stood out. I think the un-frosted models are more effective and attractive than the frosted ones, mostly because their glitter manes and tails are more obvious, but that's just my personal opinion. I've also noticed that the plastic these models are sculpted from has a tendency to leave ridges along seams, especially around the bottom of hooves or around the ears, but maybe that's more an issue with quality control at the factory. It's worth bearing in mind, though, as these edges can be a bit sharp.
And finally, because I couldn't resist, I'll leave you with some imagines of the herd standing on a windowsill, with the daylight shining through them. :)
