Let’s meet Diana!
Diana has been collecting model horses since she picked out her first Breyer, a bay grazing foal, at a garage sale when she was one year old. She started avidly collecting in 1995. Twenty-two years later she still has Breyers in her collection but her primary focus is clankies (metal horses), chinas, porcelains, and anything else that clinks.
Her favorite method for adding models to her collection is by "liberating" them at auctions, antique malls, and estate sales and bringing them back into the model horse hobby. She first started live showing in the early 2000s in her home state of Michigan. Diana attended her first BreyerFest in 1997 and has since attended quite a few more events since then!
She first volunteered for BreyerFest in 2005 and she is excited to be hosting Breakables for another year, she first hosted the show in 2017.
Diana moved to Kentucky 12 years ago and has been working in the thoroughbred racing industry for the past 9 years. While at work one day, a handsome gelding by the name of Little Sheik caught her eye. Two years later, she was able to help him retire off the track and they have been inseparable the past four years. She also enjoys spending time with her five cats, studying pedigree assignment, simulated horse racing, color genetics, following horse racing, art, and science fiction.
