Hello! Today I managed to convince my brother to 3D print me some model horse props. Most of you don’t know that my brother is a craft maker as well. He has his own work room where he makes resin things, wires up contraptions, and other things. Well, he has two 3D printers and today he was looking for things to print, so I suggested model horse cones! 3 dollars and a few hours later, I have my very own 3D printed cones!

So I can officially check off visiting Breyerfest! Although it’s online, I think it still counts. My new friend and I are already talking about carpooling to Breyerfest next year! (Fingers crossed). At first I wasn’t going to buy tickets, but once I saw the celebration horse I had to. I LOVE the mold and the coloring, so I couldn’t pass it up.
Well, I was mostly busy yesterday with camp so today I tuned into the livestream and I watched a few of the seminars. It was surprisingly fun, I really learned a lot about model horse showing and horses in general.
I’m also working on this black jumper saddle. I feel like I’m getting much better at making saddles, I’m finally *almost* satisfied with my pattern.

Ever since I’ve started this hobby I’ve always wanted a friend that shares my love of Breyer horses and tack making. To most people, model horses seem like such a silly hobby, so I’ve ALWAYS wanted a person to chat about model horses with. Well, there are not that many people into model horse showing and tack making where I live. (I live basically in a city.) So it’s always been my dream to become an equine veterinarian in the countryside somewhere.
Well, I met my person last week! I was at horse camp and I mentioned that I collect model horses. Then this girl, Addie added that she collects model horses too! We soon started chatting and I learned that she’s just like me. She has lots of Breyer horses, she performance shows, makes tack, rides at the same barn as me, and she’s been to Breyerfest.
Even better, she lives 5 minutes away !! So, yesterday she came over to my house and we had lots of fun. We mostly chatted about different Breyer models, and I showed her how I make my saddles. There aren’t many people into model horse showing, (not as much as other hobbies) so I’m glad that I found someone to talk with.

Hello! Yesterday was Fourth of July! This year my dad and I went to the annual Great Falls parade. It was really fun! We mostly went because on Saturday my mom and I were working on the horses costumes and I really wanted to see them at the parade. My mom couldn’t come so me and my dad went instead.

Hello! I just came back from LA and I had an exiting box waiting for me at home. While I was on vacation my dad sent me a text about a package that arrived for me. So the first thing that I did when I arrived home was look inside the box. In it was a present from Jennifer Buxton! I absolutely LOVE reading her blog, and she’s one of my biggest inspirations. In it was my prizes from NaMoPaiMo but to my surprise she added some other things as well.
That included this Breyer horse. I was so surprised when I saw it that I literally almost cried. I’ve decided to keep her Breyer name of Pepper. She’s gorgeous, I’ve always wanted a draft horse and she’s more than I could have ever wanted.
Jennifer also gave me leather lace, a ribbon, model horse hardware, a mini shovel, and some string.
For the NaMoPaiMo prizes I got the medallion and four stickers. The medallion and stickers are amazing! They’re so detailed and I love the movement that the stickers have. Now I just have to find a place to put the stickers…
Thank you so much Jennifer! This is probably the best gift that I have ever received. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hello! Right now I’m in LA but today I just wanted to talk about a new horse at LMU. His name is Hoffman and he’s half Gypsy Vanner and half Thoroughbred. I can definitely see the Gypsy Vanner and Thoroughbred resemblance. He has that pinto coat (piebald?) pattern and he has the size and personality of a Thoroughbred.
