Well, I ain't never been a horse owner so I pro'lly have no right to post in this thread, but I need to add something.
...Just because I admire the beauty of horses does not mean that I go gaga over every horse picture/book/toy/knickknack on the planet! Yes, I do collect them, but I'm VERY PICKY about what I add to the collection.
No, I don't want that ugly resin made-in-China dollar store yellow rearing stallion with human eyes! Ugh. Nor do I want that 23 year old well-played with, scuffed and Magic Markered Breyer with broken ear tips and a severely bent leg standing on my shelf. I also don't want that horsey picture book intended for three year olds (that my well-meaning sister actually gave me *facepalm*) Or most likely practically any other horse-shaped object you can find. 98% of "equine collectibles"/books/jewelry/movies/etc. simply do not interest me.
There, I said it.
