    Jesus, I'm 27 and I still want one! I was the kid who built a stall in the garage for my bike, groomed it every day, and two-pointed over speed bumps...

    Where was this when I was a kid?! I would have looked less ridiculous, at least . . .

    I am so glad it was my little niece's birthday last week. No bike for her from her Tante Coreene, but I have to say it is VERY difficult not to pick up the phone and at least check out the price. because the black one with the pink saddle - oh my, she'd swoon. So would I.

    And, yes, I had a stall in the garage for my bike, too.

    Life is great when you can hug a horse.

    Coreene - if not the bike - did you get her Breyers? New jodphurs? A new helmet? Certainly you enabled her horsey addiction in some way?

    I'm going to buy one and put it away for future grandchildren. I'm not anticipating any any time soon, but at least I'll be ready when they get here!!

    That black one was EXACTLY what my bike (aka wild black filly) looked like on my way to and from school. Except I hate pink & would demand a realistic saddle but I digress. My amazing filly jumped everything in her path, from trees to signs to cracks in the pavement. She was an Olympic level filly. Occasionally I see her following the car and jumping fences, overpasses & tall buildings in a single bound. Wish she'd kick all the idiots in front of me off the road...

    Oh do I wish I was 3 again!

    My niece got a fat-assed check into her college fund. But for Xmas she got two Breyer barns from me, one for her house and one for my parents' house for when she is there. And a retro Lazy Acres 45 year old barn like I had when I was little. Sadly she is ALLERGIC TO HORSES.

    Oh my, these are just adorable.

    I didn't have a stall in my garage, but I did two point and "jump" my bicycle. My parents had wanted to buy me a blue or green bike but I wanted the bright brown one instead. I named my "chestnut" mare Ginger and she was 3-gaited (aka a three speed).

    Default not to worry...

    allergists have gotten awfully good these days. ponykid is allergic to horses but has had ponies/horses for 8 years. we board out, which i think is good for her (and allergic husband, who is not so willing to suffer for the experience) but she is good as long as she takes her meds. she's perfectly happy to do shots if it becomes necessary. of course, i do think it's good for them to get a little older so they can make that choice on their own...

    Yeah, but can it jump?

    Actually, it needs a "horn" that whinnys.

    Wonder if they can make me a Mountain Bike with Endurance saddle etc. like this. My bike was a horse when I was a kid. "Silver" for the Lone Ranger's horse, even though he was blue. Now I'm dating myself... Even tried to fashion reins attached to the handlebars so I could steer with them. Not.
