This little guy earned his name after a long drawn out battle to try and photograph him. I have a love-hate relationship with my camera when it comes to certain colors… and it looks like I’m going to have to add yellow to that list! Continue reading →

Just like his namesake, this little guy is on the move! Now that he’d had his last roll in the pastels and a splash of chrome to add some flair, Tumbleweed is ready to trot off to a new set of shelves. Continue reading →

No bigger than a penny, this little gal sports one heck of an attitude– a prefect match for one of the names dreamed up in my Facebook group! (After a couple hundred horses, I sometimes get stuck on naming these little guys. ) Continue reading →
