Yesterday I posted about sorting through all of the things in my house, finding Kayla's couch, and my vision for 1/6 scale collection for the (possibly distant) future. While I was digging around in the closet I found some other things. A couple of which are some very special horses.
I have mentioned in the not-too-distant past that I started collecting horses by stealing 2 Breyers my mom had. I would not leave them alone and eventually she just gave them to me. One of them is a Clydesdale Mare, that I had painted (with mom's blessing) who lives up on my resin shelf. The other is an alabaster fighting stallion. Or he was, now he is sort of yellow. This horse is older than I am by a good amount. His ear tips were broken off sometime before I was born. This is a very special horse who will never leave me. His name is lightning. Currently he lives in a tote in the closet because I have a serious lack of shelf space. He's also tall and doesn't fit on the shelves I have at the moment. But some day he will be displayed again. I have thought about putting him in a sunny window to try to cut down the yellow, but I am afraid for him. He is really old after all.
