I have just bought the horse and I have to say he is amazing! Larger then all the other horses it might have something to do with it beeing male The legs are stocker and the hooves must be THREE TIMES the size of the orginal AG horse. There are horse shoes molded on and plainted sliver and they look like real horse shoes with nails in them there is even a frog (for non horse people that is the shock asorber part of the hoof shaped like a triangle.) I love the action pose they have him in even the head is turned slightly giving the look as though it is nodding and the color is amazing looking at Penny and then looking at Jackson you can see how far AG horses have gone. While Penny is black horse with white and black hooves all the same size and a brown coat with sold black mane making her look quite boxy in color. Jackson had a yellow gray ears and muzzle with light pinkish around the nose and mouth. The yellow tan (I don't think he is a light-chocolate-milk color at all) coat, down near the legs gets darker until it hits the legs. Athough in the catalog the legs look a little more blended then on the real horse but I am not upset in the slightist. Three socks and one leg with none more realistic. Also around the muzzle is the same blending. Another amazing thing in the mane two-tone light brown (Molly hair color) with almond-blond streaks. Which I love and wish I could see this on a doll. The bridle although looks WAY more western then previous bridles there is still a nose band and head band but give them some credit it seems they tried this time. As for nose band I think it had more to do with tecnical then inaccuracy since the horse is mouthless by design so it is either noseband or have the horse look when the bridle is off in a state of perpetual astonishment with it's mouth open. To keep the horse AG they have tiny stars decorateing the the places where the nose band and head band meet. The blanket it quite nice and I got a look at the saddle which is really sweet with rinestones set into it. I wonder why the catalog didn't mention them they are really sweet. I love this horse and I hope they will do more with this mold I think it would look great as Blackie Kirsten's horse.
