Stuffed Horse

I will be turning 54 next week and I still love stuffed animals.  My favorite stuffed horse has been with me since before I can remember.  He is a 9" tall Steiff stuffed horse, which at the time he was new was quite a toy for a young horse crazy girl.  He has been through all my life experiences and struggles as an artist including numerous jobs, moves, divorce, remarriage,  family loss and birth.  He managed to survive an attack from a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy that took his ears, tail and mane and also left him without a chin.  I love him and the memories he holds inside.  The other day I was in a local gallery where I have work displayed and saw this little stuffed alpaca horse for sale.  I fell in love again...I think my older horse could use a young companion to help him through the upcoming adventures in his life.
