Very nice!

Very smart, although in the UK white horses for some strange reason are called greys.

A 'dark horse' is someone who has an unexpected secret, as in "You know that collector Tahra, she's a dark horse; it turns out she has a large collection of curly-haired Klickies with baggy cargo pants even though she is always moaning about them" sort of thing.

No offence intended, Queen Tahra!

Sorry to barge the topic, Hadoque!

I didn't  know the expression :o  (and those are NOT "cargo pants" - they are DIAPERS!  :P )

Ditto.

I believe more detailed pics are needed. WHY oh WHY can't playmobil do these? I mean, should be cheaper, no? No print?

I've always heard 'dark horse' used to mean 'someone or something who comes from behind to win or succeed unexpectedly'*. Perhaps this is a UK/US usage difference!  8-)


*Rumors that a new law has been passed to change it to 'Trump horse' are false and should be ignored.  ;D
