The Schleich figures are modelled with attention to detail, hand-painted with care, and provide educationally valuable playtime. In their first few weeks, foals have a special, very fluffy coat. ItÕs always very exciting when they change coats for the first time, because the colour can become lighter or darker. It can also change again over the course of time. There are 17Êrecognised coat colours, including such unusual ones as grullo, cremello and perlino.
