I have not bought myself a performance horse in years. Other than Purdy Zippin Chick, I have not been all that interested in adding to my collection in the past few years. Maybe I was a bit burnt out, it happens. But this year I was more inspired. And I have been searching for some models I have sold that I really missed. I added Time Lord (my Indian Silver) back into my collection and Susan gifted me Partly Cloudy who is a close relative of my old Bold Endeavor resin Cloud Dancing. Thank you Larry Nichols for the name!
I bought a new horse just this month. She was actually a partial trade, which is how I talked myself into buying her. That, and I asked Jennifer Buxton to talk me out of it, which I knew deep down she would tell me to buy the horse, lol.
I have no name for this new lady. But I am really glad she is part of my collection now. I am not super great at naming. Partly Cloudy wasn't super hard because I had a starting point and then help from a friend. Funny enough the name Field of Dolls was not even my idea. That one came from my friend Nancy Timm. I wanted to a new studio name and ran a contest. Nancy asked what my married name would be (this was shortly before I married Ethan) and I said Field and she came up with Field of Dolls and I instantly loved it.
