I met Tiffany Purdy through a MH$P ad in January 2008. She was selling a nifty, customized Valor resin, which was way outside my usual price range. Fotunately, the ad mentioned the possibility of a tack trade. I sent an email and then another and another and another. In the end, I got that Valor.
More importantly, I made a new best friend.
Tiffany's main performance horse at the time was a customized Eberl Muscat resin named Muscatina.I loved Muscatina and featured her in one of my earliest blog posts.
At the end of the show season, Tiffany offered to give her to me. I wanted to say yes, but I knew then, as I still know now, that Tiffany is too generous for her own good. Model horses are a business for her, as well as a hobby. Much as I would like to, I can't let her give them all away.
So Muscatina disappeared down the road not taken.
In the years since then, a lot of Purdy horses have come...
I've had serious crushes...
on a lot of them.
I know I can't own them all,
but secretly, I'm always hoping that someday some of them will find their way back to me.
Finally, one has... and it's Muscatina!I can not tell you how happy I am to finally have this girl in hand.
It's been a long wait, but she is worth every minute.
Thank you to Heather for selling to me, and of course, thanks also to Tiffany for filling my shelves with Purdy horses. I can't imagine this hobby, or my life, without you in it!
