Strong and big horses: Shire, Clydesdale!!

I really love Shire and Clydesdale horses and I would love to see them as Equorum models, in any scale!!

Don't we have the Welsh D, the Norman Cob, the Suffolk Punch and the Ardennais? Because if you put extra feathers on the Norman Cob it would look like a Shire :)

Any horse model with tons of featheres legs can look similar to a Shire, sure XDDD

But they have stronger and thicker legs (longer than Ardenes ones), and they are the bigger horses in the world, so they probably would be the bigger models of their scales (and the Norman Cob isn't).

Moreover, I think they have really unique features in their face (and I think Helen can do a wonderful work with their realistic features).

Anyway... it's just my suggestion!! ;)

There used to be a Gypsy Vanner/Shire horse mould but i think Helen's dropped it cos it wasn't one of her best... Cute though :)

Personally I think it is time for a brand new Shire / heavy horse mould in full scale (i.e. big!), perhaps in a trotting or walking pose to contrast against the four-square Suffolk. I don't think any of the existing moulds are suitable as Shires or Clydies, personally (specially not the welsh D).... also Helen's style seems to be evolving and dare I say it improving all the time so a new heavy could be quite exciting! :D
