For my second installment of Model Horse Profile, I decided to show and tell a little about one of my older models.
Proud Arabian Foal mold, number 220, made from 1973-1978.
(information from the Identify Your Breyer website)
She was one of the original Breyers that my mom gave me from her collection when I was about 9 years old.
My Granddad helped to give me a love for looking at the stars and he taught me several of the constellations in the night sky. One of the earliest he showed me was Cassiopeia, the "lazy W". I thought that this little filly's dapples looked like stars in the sky and I decided that Cassiopeia would be a pretty name for her.
She's not in the best of shape - none of my old horses are, most of them were played with from my mom and me. I still think she is a pretty little girl though and her name has special meaning to me. I still think of Granddad whenever I notice the "lazy W" in the night sky.
