My friend, Jean, has a lot of really nice models.
However, the one that most caught my eye during last month's visit was this humble little Eohippus.
"I'm going to need one of those," I said. So I went home, logged onto eBay and soon after this arrived in my mailbox.I love her.
She reminds me of Yesterday's Horses, a novel by Jean Slaughter Doty, in which a teenager goes on a trail ride and discovers a small herd of prehistoric horses. It's not her best book, but the concept is intriguing. Who wouldn't want to find a modern day ancestral horse?
This makes me so happy.
I am extremely pleased to have an Eohippus in my herd. I can't wait to paint her up!
