Dundee

I had a feeling I should join the Premier Club this year. I ignored it. I regret it.

But thanks to another hobbyist I was able to add the second, Dundee, to the herd! ❀

Photos of this horse have been everywhere lately, so, sorrynotsorry for adding a few more. πŸ˜‰

I really, really love this mold. Performance friendly horses are my favorites. (I’m still waiting for a performance Arab that’s not trotting, but cantering or walking without his head in the clouds)

My copy certainly isn’t perfect, but I’m happy with him anyway. His mapping is different from what I’ve seen on other mapped models. It looks like there is grey shading underneath it. A nice experiment, but I think I like the way they mapped previous models better. πŸ™‚

When I first got into Breyers I really, really wanted the Traditional Spirit and Rain models. I did have one of the Walmart sets which were very loved. They were the leaders of the Walmart Mustang Carpet Herd. (it was full of drama)

I remember getting SO excited to see both Traditionals available in a local tack shop, for a whopping $35 a piece. I was going to save up and buy them both, but I’m not sure why I never did? I think I got distracted with the more realistic non-eyebrowed models, as well as discovering the hobby in general.

Spirit was generously PIF’d/gifted to me several years later:

I’ve been trying to find a Rain for a reasonable price ever since. (yes I have kicked myself for never buying them in the tack shop) The prices on both these horses, in any condition, have skyrocketed. I think it’s calmed down some now, but NIB horses are still reaching around $100 a piece.

Patience pays off though – a minty-ish one came up for sale with a BIN price I was willing to pay. Childhood grail achieved!!

Spirit is no longer forever alone. ❀ I thought I would try something different and put these edited photos together for fun.

My animation-loving heart still adores the movie and it’s soundtrack. ❀ (it's Hans Zimmer what's not to like about it?!)

14 year old me is very happy too. πŸ˜€

It’s been exactly ten years since I started posting on this blog.

I started a hobby blog for fun, and never imagined that I would still be blogging a decade later.

This wouldn’t have been possible without you guys.

THANK YOU for reading, for your comments and sweet encouragement. I’m bad at responding to comments (I’m trying to get better at it) but I do read and appreciate them all!

If you’ve been reading since the beginning or just started recently, thanks for being here and sticking with me. πŸ™‚

I don’t know what the next ten years will hold, or whether or not I’ll keep blogging throughout it, but who knows!
