Merry Christmas! I wonder why parents do that? (Try to cut off the horse-supply) My parents tried that too, but they must have noticed I really didn't play with stuff that wasn't "Horse". They gave in -LOL! God Bless them! It's in the blood people! 'Horsey' people can't help the way they are.
opps BTW I am ;anonymous;, sorry i can't figure out how to run things around here! Lorrie - who needs to remember to sign her name...
That picture is priceless! It kinda made my evening. I didn't get anything horse-shaped, but plenty of goodies that will lead to horse-shaped creations!Happy Holidays!
That Christmas I also got an Appaloosa, but mine was the running stallion. A few years later my parents took to chanting "no more hooves" which created some interesting solutions of how to get models as gifts!
Hey Regan, do you still have your Appaloosa? I have that FAM. She's not even boxed up but is standing on a shelf in my studio. She was a great favorite of mine and still is. That picture is also a favorite. I was six years old so I still had some time before the institution of the Breyer ban.
I DID get something horse shaped under the tree, lol. My nieces got me a classic Breyer Arabian. The older one told her mom it was the perfect one because I would be cutting off it's head and tail anyway. Lol, So I guess I have to branch out into customizing to make the girls happy :)
No horse shaped objects for me this year but I stopped asking for them.I got lots of books and Snoopy shaped objects instead which was JUST fine with me! :DAnd a knife set from the inlaws. I'm not sure if that's a subtle hint that if I go nuts and kill the hubby that I'd have a sharp knife in which to do so or some sort of cooking hint.
What precious memories (and what a cute photo)!! My Mother gave me some Breyers for Christmas this year. She is the only one who will still give them to me; everyone else thinks I am too old for them. At 35, I don't think I will ever outgrown them though! My collection is over 300 I guess, some old ones are even signed by Peter Stone who I met at one of the very first BreyerFests a million years ago when Pony Club Championships happened to be at the same time.Your tack is incredible - I tried many years ago to make little English saddles and bridles for my models, but they are a far, far cry from yours! :)
