The Clydesdale Mare was released as part of the new Clydesdale family by Schleich in 2016. The model horse has pinto markings in brown and white colours. Her mane has been plaited three ways with a red bow completing each plait. There is another plait in her tail also completed with a pretty red bow. Fun facts about the horse: Shoeing a Clydesdale can be very hard work for a farrier. Their horseshoes are not just extremely large, but also weigh over 2.5 kg. This means they weigh four to five times as much as the shoes of warmbloods or thoroughbreds. Although Clydesdales tend to be stocky and extremely heavy, they can move very elegantly. They are famous for their gait: they lift their beautiful white legs very high and with great force. For this reason, they aren’t just used as draught horses, but also for shows and street parades.
