Thank you to Nichelle at Desktop Stables for tagging me on your Liebster Award nomination. These are fun.
1: What first got you into model horses?
I don't remember, really. I may have been in a toy store that sold them and talked my parents into buying me one. I was 7 or 8.
2: Plastic, resin, both or other?
3: Who is your favorite horse in your collection?
That's a tough one. It's hard to pick just one, but I'm going to say Kalahkaari. Either him or the original Lady Phase.
4: Who is your favorite model horse sculptor?
I actually don't have one. I don't buy based on who the sculptor was and I really couldn't point out a model and tell you who it was sculpted by.
5: Finishwork artist?
N/A as I don't collect non-OF
6: How long have you been collecting?
A looooong time. 35+ years...but not straight. In the 90s I took a break.
7: What would your dream horse be? (real or model!)
Real: A 17hh bay Hanoverian
8: Do you have a sentimental favorite model?
9: What do you like most about the model horse hobby?
Good question. I've seen some real good things such as helping others out who are in need and I have seen ugliness.
10: What is your best memory involving model horses?
Winning my first (and only) Champion in halter. It was at Arizona Live in 1996 and I got a neat clear trophy plaque thing. I still have the award and the model that won it, which is amazing since I have so few other models anymore from that time period.
