The cattle are fine.  The sheep may be "good enough" because of the short legs.  The goat is a little jarring.  There were cattle about his size in Mesopotamia when I was there, but the proportions were different.

Let's consider it a riding goat then. I have a little cart it's the perfect size to pull.

 

Also, that's the biggest Holstein I've ever seen (I think Holsteins are pretty but overused).

The Cows are useful for this scale. There are some large breeds out there... and it IS fantasy.. so why not.

 

The Sheep and Goat are a bit to large, but could be riding breeds.

 

Nevertheless, nice find.

Actually, the goat is about right (probably not much bigger than what I did).  Goats in the ancient world were considerably larger than goats of today.  We've been shrinking them for many, many years.  They started out like this:

The goat was the only one I thought was a bit large, but as other people said, maybe he's a special riding breed. Or a war-ram, haha!

I'm happy to see this actually, as I've been running an idea for a diorama around in my useless head for a few hours now.   The idea involves some farmyard animals possibly, depending on what way I go with it.

Other than perhaps the goat, they don't seem too terribly out of scale at all. Nice job on them, and kudos for using a color scheme for the cows that I had not known about.

      Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back.

      There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated.

      Recently I painted a Crypt Lord and in the Show Off there was an introduction.
      See and read it here:

      @Gadgetman! commented that he wanted to see the goat.
      So here it is, it's from the Animal Companion Set sculpted by @TaleSpinner Reaper Sku 03719.
      I love your animal sculpts Andrew, they are a real pleasure to paint!
       
      Omar's son, Mehmet herded the goats but his mind was elsewhere, one of the goats wandered off without him noticing it.
      Our adventurous animal took off and found herself walking between the ancient ruins of a long dead civilization.
      When it entered a dark building it got scared and it bleated loudly, the sound echoed through the empty halls.
       
      Alarmed by the noise General Ahm Me Hula the Second rose from his Sarcophagus, ENEMIES!!! RAIDERS!!! He needed to protect the Pharaoh!
      He rose from his slumber and quickly grabbed his weapons.
      Time to once again defend the realm!
       
      He alarmed his men and all over the place skeleton and mummy warriors rose from their eternal sleep.
      The Pharaoh himself needed to be warned!
      Giving the order to a Liche Priest he himself walked out to investigate how many raiders there were in the ruins.
      The first enemy he encountered was Omar who was looking for his goat.
       
      And so it came to pass that our dear little goat was responsible for the awakening of the Tomb Lords.
      Their armies are now gathering and the living must once again fear their wrath!

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
       
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
       
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
       
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
       
      Enjoy!

      This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
       
      I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
       
      The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.
