Horse Miniatures (Work in Progress Sculpts) Opinions?


I am currently in the process of having a selection of miniature horses sculpted by a sculptor who is new to doing horses. In total I have commissioned 5 different horses in interchangable multi-part form. The sculpts stand around 27mm to the withers, and will be cast in metal once complete.

I've been getting opinions throughout the commission from a friend whos a vet and another friend who studied horse anatomy, but thought it was time to get a few more opinions. This place seemed ideal.

They're not bad, really. The legs on the first, from the hock and knee down seem way too thick and short, though, and the middle piece should be thicker into the chest. Other than that, the overall lines and detail is pretty nice.
Same goes for the second, though the neck is a tad too long. Not much, but enough to notice. Again, i like the detail and the motion is super neat
