DC - Collinson


DC is another original Collinson; he is 47 inches high and was made about 1965. The horse had also been stored for several years and the slightly damp conditions caused the wooden blocks from which he is made to move apart leaving gaping cracks in places. This picture illustrates the exaggerated arch of the neck which is a feature of Collinson horses.
The cracks and peeling varnish can give the horse the appearance of being much older than it is to a casual observer.
