I’m rather discouraged with the mane, forelock, and tail. Very difficult to get it looking decent. Also, many of the mane and forelock pose controls are either on or off. No incremental settings (at least in Poser. It’s either 0 or 1). So, if you want a mane that is kinda windy, no such luck. It’s either full on flying in the wind or it’s flat against the neck.
Also can’t turn off sections of the mane. I wanted the forelock to be split with half to the left and half to the right, so thought I’d use both manes and turn off the neck parts. Nope. Doesn’t work.
It just amazes me people create such incredible and gorgeous hairs for human figures, but we get this ... ancient ... something ... with the latest and greatest DAZ figure.
The forelock and mane are one reason why I didn’t use the Mil Horse all that much. I’d hoped that Horse 2 would be improved.
It also appears Horse 2 doesn’t work in the Poser hair room. Nothing is selectable when you try to make a group :( So much for that idea.
Maybe I’ll just use bald horses like I usually settled for with the Mil Horse Especially, since the forelock didn’t work with the draft / heavy horse morphs ... and I rather like the draft horses.
Got it installed. The mane, forelock and the tail are horrid in my opinion. The forlocks are basically two single planes with transmaps applied to them. You have to load both the manes (R & L) to get the forelock looking just OK… it’s very long too, there are no shortening morphs to pull it up. The mane has barely any movement morphs at all and the tail… not sure what that’s all about… The main horse looks great but can’t wait for someone to make a nice mane, forelock and tail set, perhaps with fibermesh that one can load each. I think one of the things I would have done differently is make the forelock separate. Plus there is that huge gap with no hair from behind the ears down to where the mane starts. That looks really odd, like the groomer had a “whoops” moment. Not impressed with this area of the new horse in the least. I won’t return it but I won’t use it until there is an alternative set offered.
