Copperfox Challenge Day 8: Join a Model Horse Group, Forum or Club (#CDCDay8)
There are so many fabulous groups, forums and clubs out there both online and offline to join, all over the world. Joining a group (or forum or club) is a way to chat to other like minded individuals about your models, to share ideas and be part of the community that has the same interest as you.
This is a tough challenge, only because I have been involved in the online model horse community for a number of years now and am already signed up as a member pretty much anywhere I have an interest! Plus.. blogs need pictures and this is, on first look, a non-photogenic type of question (Hmmm…).. but I shall do my best..
To start, among many bookmarks I have in my “Model Horse” folder, I have the company websites for Breyer, Peter Stone Horses and Copperfox Model Horses.
I’ve been a member on Model Horse Sales Pages (“MHSP”) for several years and recently bought several items from listings on there. In the last few days alone I’ve connected with some new-to-me fellow hobbyists on Facebook, which has been fun.
A few of my new tack pieces from MHSP 🙂
I find Model Horse Blab to be my most entertaining and enlightening message board in the hobby and I have been visiting it daily for several months now. It’s an active community and there are often new posts and threads to discover.
I also visit several model horse blogs, some more often than others, but my current favorites include: Breyer History Diva, Desktop Stables, and Braymere Custom Saddlery.
I bought new horses from fellow collectors for the first time,
and have begun to prepare for a live model horse show in my area (Pocono Ponies Live for those who need to know!).
Incidentally you can search for and find live model horse shows through North American Model Horse Shows Association (“NAMHSA”) as well as through Model Horse Blab.
So.. I’ve got a challenge posted WITH photos to go with it. I’m so proud. More tomorrow!
