Mini girl and maxi horse

Raffine shipped much faster than I expected, and I fetched her from the customs office on Wednesday. I wasn’t sure if the size would feel right, but I actually love it. It’s a fun size, easy to handle. She came a bit floppy, but I want to suede her anyway, so tightening the strings won’t be much of a hassle. For some reason the extra hand parts were outside her box, and I was really lucky nothing broke.

I don’t have enough time during daylight hours, so their faces will have to wait until after Christmas. And all my other plans as well. I’ve started too many projects. It starts to get stressful, and where’s the fun in that? So I will pack all the stuff up and store it out of the way (heaps of stuff that demand attention are stressful as well) and get to them one after another.

All the more to look forward to. And I did something stupid- at least considering that I already have so little space left. I got a horse. A big horse. But at least it doesn’t need to be stored in the dark, so that’s a plus.
And it arrived to today. I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised that it has actually more sculpted details than I expected from the pictures. I was already thinking of modding it, but maybe a repaint and a bit of sanding will do. Dapple gray would be nice, or maybe it’ll stay brownish – but with a lot of lighter parts. I am not sure yet.
To give you an idea of the size: Big new guy with a Breyer classic. It’s ridiculous, really. And my cat, who wanted to say hello to the new guy. The horse is missing any gender specific parts, but the neck doesn’t look like a mare’s, so I’ll make it a gelding. It’s an ourGeneration horse.

As an addition to this post a picture of Raffine’s heel feet in DeeAnnaDenton shoes. I had to warm them up to get them on, it’s not really a fit. But it would be, if the shoes would be just a tad wider and longer. Most other Tonner shoes that go on are too long. If I could get my hands on soles this size I’d make some myself.

  1. Congrats on the arrivals!! I agree with you, piles of stuff demanding attention are stressful as well.
    The horse looks amazing, are you going to customize him?

  2. I'm glad you like the FID size. It really is a wonderful size to handle. I look forward to Raffine's face-up–when you get around to working on projects again. (I don't even want to think of how many unfinished projects I have around the house. The trouble is the ideas keep coming!)

    Love the photo of your cat with the horses. 😀 From what I know of the Our Generation line, I'm guessing the size will work best with JID and FID.

  3. Me too :). I want to wait with her until I know who she is. She's a horse woman, but other than that I don't even have a name yet. The horse is the perfect size for her. I am so glad I chose the mobility joint this time. Even without a saddle she can sit on him.

  4. Raffine looks amazing! Beutiful features and body <3
    And the horse is so great…and big!! I am sure you will make something amazing with it 😉

  5. I just want to add that Deanna Denton pumps are too tight for Raccoon girls, too, although slingbacks fit. The problem is they make her feet look tiny while her legs look big. I'm not sure I'll go that route again.
