Wheelie Wednesday - The Rocking Horse Collection

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
A couple of months back, mom got a box from gram and it had her entire rocking horse collection in it! Gram has been collecting rocking horses for years and years!
We haven't counted all of the rocking horses but there are a least a zillion and they're all shapes and colors and sizes and from all different countries!

What I want to know is who is going to dust this thing? I sure hope it's not me!Mom made the one that's right in front of my nose! She made it a long time ago and it's hasn't fallen apart yet! He needs a rider, mom!
This is the whole thing without my fuzzhead in the way!
Well hello! Mind if I climb aboard and go rocking with you?!
Thank you so much for sending us your life-long collection, gram! It's sensational!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn

WOWZER! That's an impresive collection of rockers. Do they have names like John, paul, george and Ringo? They're rockers. Our sissy sarah's husband, da Beel, has a collection exactly like that, only the rockers are all little police cars.

They are lovely rockers. Maybe you can use your tail to dust. Mums collects snowmen an she brings them out end of Nov ready for Christmas cause it doesn't snow then so she can pretend.

Oh, I am so jealous! What a great collection. I'm so glad it's being passed on and admired and I'm sure it'll be added to. Maybe you can find an Airedale rocker to add.

BRUTUS said...

How nice to have a collection like that, especially since it is from your gram! We agree that dusting them is the only drawback of having such a fabulous array of little horses!!

Boy! Sorry it's been so long since we visited! That box of rocking horses is absolutely stunning. What a wonderful collection of beautiful and (some) probably quite old rocker horses. Beautiful (but would not want to dust!).

RILEY AND STAR said...

Wow! Too cool! That was really nice of your Gram! And priceless too!

You don't have to dust, just blow on them but not too hard or you'll knock them off their horses!

Luv,
Riley and Star.
