A Peek Into My Day

I’ve spent the last 6 months working on several properties (coughJurassiccough) and luckily have had the pleasure of giving some anatomical input on Spirit models and art.

Seriously, it’s like these people have never seen a horse before. I’ve pulled out my phone to show them how horses look (plus then I get to share all my horse photos! Win-win!!).

What I still can’t wrap my mind around is how the Breyer Stablemates go for $3.99 (blister pack OR blind bag) and the Just Play figures, bling bag only, are $5+!

I mean…look at the quality difference:

Chica Linda sporting that clubbed foot that’s so in fashion.

I don’t know about all of you but I know which one I want to spend my money on.

The majority of our product is pretty nice (I mean, look at that sexy T. rex) but these little Spirit figures really bug me. Interestingly enough the larger toys look great because Breyer designed them and then sold the designs to whoever is producing them now.

Flaca is pretty cute for a floofy horse with a tongue-in-cheek name.

And of course I’ve watched the whole show for work purposes. It’s not amazing but it’s definitely the horse show I wish they had on tv when I was a kid.

Anyway, I really wanted to share those awful little figures with people who would get how bad they really are. Hope you enjoyed that little slice of my life.

If you want to see something else I’ve worked on in the last couple months, just google #AmazonFindsAWay for a pretty fun Jurassic promo with Amazon where they’re delivering the largest shipment ever. I’m pretty proud of all the Jurassic stuff coming out that I’ve helped produce.

Baby Aria Pictures

Bored in LA last week I decided to stalk Aria’s previous owner on FB and found a wealth of 2yo Aria pics!

Her mane was definitely longer than it is now. I need to up my mane care game. Like…Valeria has a gorgeous long Andalusian mane now and I don’t know how to maintain it from 150 miles away beyond Cowboy Magic once in a while.

Last but not least I found the Craigslist photo that made me inquire. Can you believe how ugly she looks here? Luckily her previous owner followed up with professional photos via private message.

I’m supposed to have a lesson tomorrow (YAY!) and plan to write about that as soon as I can.

Right now I’m just praying for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom to hit theaters so I can catch a break on my current Dino workload.

Growing Up!

Holy cow. If Catalina doesn’t reach 16h I’ll be shocked. Valeria sticks at a conservative 15.2 last time I checked.

She’s living up to her nickname, Moose, at 1 year 2 months old.

I’m horrified by the rubbed out mane. It was so beautiful. RIP mane.
