So then I got a couple of dolls. Not for showing since I don't show and I don't have decent tack to use and, well, let's face it. The Breyer dolls aren't exactly the best things out there, but I wasn't going to drop a boat-load of cash on something I just wanted to have fun with. If I showed then maybe I'd consider a nicer doll, but these are just for fun.
Here they are terrorizing the new companion animals I got off of MH$P...
But then the animals strike back and they bring in reinforcements...

Anyway...Breyerfest was this past weekend, as many of you know. I was supposed to get a couple of models picked up, but I ended up having to cancel that, which totally sucked, but all is not lost. I was able to get a Platinum Star off ebay for a good price and it'll arrive unopened so I'll still get the thrill of opening it...and the possibility that it might be one of the rare silver edition ones. If it is, I might look at putting it up for offers...just to see what I can get. But if it's a regular one, I'll keep it. I don't know when he'll arrive. I got a shipping notification yesterday, but no exact arrival date. My Silver Florentine Time To Party Misty should be here on Friday. I'm still debating whether I'm going to try to make an honest run at going next year. I heard some horror stories about this year's crowd and the rudeness of people, but I also heard some nice stories, too, so we shall see. The theme is Viva La France so it'll be interesting to see what kind of models and stuff they come up with. For the cost of a trip to BF, though, I can go to San Diego in November, like I have already planned, and San Francisco next summer for the opening of the new Africa exhibit at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo. Going to Lexington would satisfy my zoo "requirements" (Louisville and Cincinnatti Zoos) and horses (oh boy horses galore!), but San Francisco would satisfy zoos, beach, lighthouses and possibly some horses. Plus it's a shorter plane trip. I have time to decide, though.
It looks like I didn't win one of the 5 farrier dolls off the Breyer website that I posted about last week. They were supposed to notify people yesterday and I didn't get an email. Oh well. Congrats to those who got one.
Well, I guess that's it for now. Happy Wednesday!
