With its calm and relaxed pose, the Arabian mare by Schleich® Horse Club expresses that the spirited horse breed also has a gentle and sensitive side. Her tail is an interesting color: It is black at the top and white at the bottom. Another highlight of the figurine is the dark mane and the dark front legs, because they serve as an exciting contrast to the light coat.
Arabian horses were bred by Bedouins and lived with the families in the desert - sometimes they even slept in their tents! Today these remarkable horses can be recognized by their tails and head form. Almost all horse breeds go back to an Arabian bloodline, as Arabian horses were crossed in order to pass on certain characteristics such as speed, endurance and a disposition for healthy bones to other breeds. Arabians are characterized by a readiness of mind and a willingness to cooperate, as well as alertness and temperament. The 'Versatile Arabian' often wins at endurance competitions and is a popular breed worldwide.
Arabian mare figure measures approximately 5.3 x 3.5 x 1.5 inches.
