Big Boy


I was born a horse addict. Yep, that's right. It happens to a lot of us. It all started way back when I was a little bitty person - maybe all of about 3-4 years old. It must have been watching "Fury, the Wild Mustang" on TV that filled me with such a case of "Equine Collecti-vitis" or model horse fever that I still have it - even after all these years.

But the thing that really sealed the deal was a trip to the stable on the edge of town. There, Mom and Dad had me put up on the tallest horse on the lot. His name was "Big Boy" and he must have been 39 hands high! Sittin' on him was like sittin' on the top of the world! When I was way up there, I felt the wind in my hair, the leather reins between my fingers, the squeak of the saddle under me, and the soft hide of my horse - it was all over. I was riding the plains with the cowboys and Indians! And I wasn't even moving! I was all of four years old but ever since than, it's been horses or nothing.

Drawing of me on Big Boy



Dad worked at a bank and would bring me home reams of old typing paper to draw on. I would sit in front of that Fury TV show and try to draw what I saw. This is the earliest picture of a horse I can find. It dates back to the stone ages, when I was four. It must be Big Boy.

love it!

I love how the smallest person is on the biggest horse ever! may I ask for more details on Big Boy? Color, Breed, ect. (If you can remember, of course!) Also, is it possible we can get a model of Mr. Big Boy? maybe on a walking mold? (If you make Mr. Big Boy here you can have my monies ;] )

Does anyone know if the 2014 Horse of the Year Amelia can be shown? Or is she too metallic?
