I'm sure many of you are in school and if you don't mind sharing, this discussion is about how you stay connected to the hobby while buying yourself with education. Do you share your passion for collecting openly with others, close friends, or no one at all? What do model horses mean to you and how have they helped your life.. if at all?
I began collecting 10 years ago at the age of 10. I was never shy about my passion for model horses, and even now I will discuss my interest with anyone who will listen. I began live showing my models 6 years ago and that has become the sole purpose for my collection. The knowledge gained through competing with my models aided me in the equine portion of my Farm Animal Skills course during my senior year of pursuing my Veterinary Technician degree. I plan to collect well into adulthood, most likely for the rest of my exsistance!
