Leibster Award Questions...

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!)
Model: Zydeco
Real:  A 17hh bay Hanoverian

8: Do you have a sentimental favorite model?
Not really.

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.


  1. Yay! Congrats. That little model is so cute! I've also nominated you for the award! See my blog for the details.

  2. Thank you! I don't remember if he is Just Justin the Quarter Pony or Rocky the Connemara Pony. Hahaha. They're both so similar.

    I was just on your blog earlier today and didn't see it. I'll have to go look again.
