I was nuts about horses when I was a kid -- didn't have any, but I loved to read and fantasize about them. (Well, and there were a couple of horses nearby, that I could go and visit.)
Breyer horses have been around at least 60 years, so I'm kind of surprised that I never got any. I would have absolutely loved them! They're so incredibly beautiful.
Pictured is the Breyer Arabian Best in Show available from Amazon. It's one of the items on my Squidoo lens, Gifts for Kids Who Love Horses.
