Atz Update

Hello everyone!
I thought I would update you on Atz, since I know y'all are dying to see him. ;)

Atz is no longer a little puppy....he is a big puppy, almost triple his size from when we got him on January 18th.


Day after we got him
He still barks at the cats, but the cats fully protect themselves. 

He has got bunches of energy, and he is going to be a fantastic guard dog when he grows up...his bark is already very deep and he doesn't like to leave the house unless the whole family is with him.

His eye's have a bunch of expression-he is kind of like a puppy version of a Appaloosa.

He also really enjoys the horses!

I love our little Atz. Sure, he steals socks, and runs around with cardboard boxes and can be a pain in the rear, but I love him, and he is going to be a great dog one day. :)

IMEHA Superior Champion

Catty Little Snazz is now a IMEHA Superior Champion! She has a total of 1129 points right now, and has won Overall Grand Champion 3 times since I entered her in October. 

Bleau Angel is also a IMEHA Superior Champion! At 1366 points, she has been the Division Champion 2 times. 

Seeing these results made me excited, and so I went out today and took Harley D Zip's show picture. I may retake it... I am not sure yet, but I am going to show him in the IMEHA as well. 

I do not love the dark near his face...but he is a dark faced horse so it made be hard for me to get some light on it. I like the background..I have been taking photos in different places on our property to find the best place to do model photography. I may try out a few more places, but for now I am happy with the picture. :)

Elska-Brick and Mortar Store Special

Hello, Everyone!!

I would like to introduce you to my new model, Elska.

Elska was the 2015 Brick and Mortar Store Special, with only 3000 models made, I have had Elska in my "want" list since I saw her, but I decided to wait. 

Two days ago I went to the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo, and I saw one of her available for sale in the early morning. I told myself that if she was still available when I was going to leave the Expo,  I would buy her. I spent the rest of the day watching clinics and Colt Starting and buying lots of food. After spending over 8 hours at the Expo it was time to leave, and so I walked buy the vendor that had her for sale and guess what!? the same model was there. 

You can guess what happened next. ;)

Bad picture but look at the dapples!!

This little mare is beautiful. She really is a small Traditional, being about the same height as the Flash mold. She has huge hooves, and a stunning mane and tail. 

One negative thing I have to say about this mold is that it has a poor, small hip. The neck in proportion to the hip does not quite match, but nonetheless it is still a photogenic model. 

The Elska I bought has two small flaws on it's mane and a little dark streak on it's hip. The dapples on this mare are beautiful, and I am very happy to see that Breyer's quality control has really improved. 

If you are interested in the Elska model, I highly suggest that you buy her. She is a very nice piece to add to the collection!
