A couple weeks before the show, Fabian started a thread on the Jennifer Show Facebook page asking people what they were bringing to sell. Jan Stevens mentioned that she had several old North Light models she wanted to re-home. One thing led to another, and these two now belong to me.I have wanted this mule for decades.
She has the frog eyes that plague many of the North Light sculptures, but that does nothing to diminish her appeal.
I find her utterly charming.
I have a similar soft spot for this big, heavy, doorstop of a draft mare.
I don't know what it is about these North Lights. They're not perfect sculptures. I see the flaws, but somehow they don't bother me. There's just something about them I find really appealing.
And it's not just me. These girls hung out on the Jennifer Show staff table Saturday, and so many people asked if they were for sale. I have no doubt I could have sold them several times over and probably cleared a nice profit.
But no. They are mine, and they're here to stay.
