Sometimes, two animals form an unlikely bond that you can’t help but smile at, like the story of the horse and dog team that are not only best buds, but could win a lookalike contest as well! Dalmatians are often kept around horses as they seem to have a natural bond with them, and are useful at calming and soothing the larger animals. And in some cases, as this set shows, they even share the same spotted pattern!

  • Characteristics: This set includes two accurate, hand-painted figures of a spotted Knabstrupper Horse and Dalmatian Dog, allowing kids to recreate this remarkable animal friendship.
  • Size and Color: This set of hand-painted Best in Show and Winner’s Circle figures contains two animal figures:

    The Dalmatian is 2 ¾ inches tall and 3 ½ inches long, about the size of a small smartphone, and is white with black spots.

    The Knabstrupper is also white with black spots and features brown hooves. It’s 3 ¾ inches tall and 7 inches long, not quite as long as a 16 oz water bottle on its side.

    Note: Figures are NOT to scale. Please refer to images for relative sizes.

History:

In early 2018, a video went viral on the internet featuring a Dalmatian dog trotting behind a horse that shared a similar coloration - white with small black spots. These two friends - named Jack Sparrow and Nevada - may seem like an unlikely pair, but the truth is that Dalmatians in general have a natural affinity for horses, and the feeling is mutual. However, it's not every day you see them sharing almost the same exact color pattern!
