"Indirect Photography"

I don't know the term for model horse pictures that aren't facing side to side for a show photo so I call it "Indirect Photography." Today I took a lot of those photos. Sometimes I enjoy playing with angles and brightness instead of a show quality photo. Here are a few of the many I took today:




She Dunn It 


P.S. No one has guessed the model that I bought!! Here is another hint: Her name reminds me of a famous painter. Comment below who you think she is! :)

As you all can see, this blog is going through some renovations. Since Ollie's Book Of Life is used for the horses and this blog is now for the model horse side of my life, I  decided Bits and Spurs needed a fresh look. If you think I should add anything, feel free to let me know in the comments!!!

I Joined The Collector Club

I (finally!) joined the Collector Club. I am excited for all it has to offer, and I am really liking the first Collector Club model for 2016:

Abdul-in the Ashquar mold
I am psyched to get him!!

I am not all that into Fabian, only because (though I love the Totilas mold) they can be quite "tippy" and my Totilas fell multiple times. I cannot even stand him up now. 


His color is pretty and his dapples are stunning, but I just cannot risk getting another horse that could tip over during a photo shoot, on to my other horses..etc. 

Besides that faulty point, even though I heard that people were complaining about his color and his perfect dapples, when he was first released to buy he quickly became unavailable. He is now back up for sale, and everyone is still buying him! I would love to hear what your thoughts are on Fabian. 

I did, however reward myself with another horse that is a regular run, but has been a Holy Grail of mine-both the actual mold and the model itself- ever since SHE came out. Can you figure out which model it is? If you have an idea on who it is, please comment below! :)

IMEHA Champion!

Bleau Angel is the first of my horses to get the "IMEHA Champion" award.

Bleau Angel

She currently has 521 points, and has been showing in 3 classes for only a few months.

Catty Little Snazz, my QH Don't Look Twice mare, got Division Champion and Overall Grand Champion beating over 1156+ horses last month!

Catty Little Snazz

Big Shining Chex has been only entered in one class for 5 months because I have been forgetting to enter him in more. He has 174 points. 

Ranka has just been entered in some classes this month. 

So is Sheza Autumn Storm.....

Midnight Tango...



...and others. I will keep you updated on all of my models winnings! Stay tuned for new updated model pictures as well. :)

More New Models

Hello everyone!

Today is my birthday, but it was celebrated Saturday. I only got three (well, Sonsela would have been the 4th, but I got her on my own) models this birthday because I have a horse now and asked for more stuff for him. :)

First up, and the Mid States Distributing Mustang set.
I am sorry for the bad pictures. I took these in mid day...just because I needed some pictures for this post. I will take more soon so the legs don't disappear into the background!!

These two are absolutely beautiful..and with Gretel being one of my favorite molds of all time, I was so happy to get her. Sadly, during the photo shoot she fell from a fence and now has some rubs, but she is still Photo Show quality. :( 

I happened to get the fall on camera. 

Gretel conga

My 3rd model is a 2015 Warmblood Mare Stablemate. She has a glossy sheen to her (and so does the Gretel) and has a very smooth paint job. I hand picked her and she is just beautiful.

I cannot wait to get into the show ring with these new models. I think they will take MEPSA and the IMEHA by storm. :)
