Sometimes it's like that

When it comes to the hobby, I am a lifer.

My participation and investment may vary, depending on whatever else is happening in my life, but I'm always going to have horses on my shelves.
When I got Olive, I thought, "Welp, no new models for a while." I stopped looking at MH$P and went no notifications on most of the hobby buy/sell Facebook pages.
I honestly thought 2022 would be a no major purchases kind of year.
Then I was presented with an opportunity that was way too good to pass up.
What can I say? Sometimes it's like that.
So anyway... Here's the newest member of my herd, a Rose Reiner painted by Nikki Button.
He arrived yesterday, and I am completely smitten. 
I didn't mean to buy a big horse this year, but I'm really glad I bought this one. Thank you, Aislinn, for making this possible. I absolutely love my pretty new boy.

P.S. A horse this nice deserves a really good name. I have a couple ideas, but I'm not one hundred percent sold on any of them yet. Suggestions are always welcome!

    1. My sidesaddle doll is riding him across my desk right now. He looks wonderful under saddle.

  2. I'm a lifer too I'm afraid, just with a lot smaller budget these days. So I definitely get it. Congrats on a beautiful new piece! Stunning!

  4. Normally I love naming horses; still this guy is hard. My first idea is based on his color. Apricot Country. Apricot anything, really: Apricot Dreams, Pie, Motion,...
