Pinto horses were much loved by Native Americans, because their coloured coat served as great camouflage. In the summer they preferred dun horses, chestnuts and sorrels. In the winter they rode on white Pintos. They were difficult to make out against a snowy landscape. Schleich manufacture amazingly wonderful accurate models of all sorts of animals, including this Pinto Mare model. This Schleich Pinto Mare model is beautifully hand painted to give wonderful role play to children and also makes a great collectors item for the nature enthusiast.
