Many of you might recall that I had recently written a series blog posts for Chinese New Year and that this year is the year of the Horse. In the Chinese zodiac, the horse came in seventh out of the 12 year cycle of the animals. If you would like to find out more about the Chinese zodiac animals, click here to read more. Why does the horse come in seventh in the cycle? Legend has it that the sneaky Snake hid itself on the Horse’s hoof. Before crossing the finishing line, the Snake frightened the Horse and took the 6th spot and left the horse in 7th.
If you were born within these date, you are from the Year of the Horse:
So which Chinese zodiac year were you born in?
Schleich have a range of farm animals and these are one of it horse range – Trakehnen Breed (Equus ferus caballus). They are pure-bred warmblood horses that are often used for jumping and dressage. They can reach a height of 160 cm to 170 cm at the withers and have many colours.
This set contains 3 horses, a mummy, daddy and a foal. These are aimed at girls and boys aged 3+. They are very well made high end horses. Each horse look very realistic with a solid body.
Ms C was so excited this morning when I opened up the package. I made use of the boxes to make a stable for the horses and with a bit of Ms C’s help to decorate the stable with her flowers and signage for the stable.
I also used the green DuckTape to make a tree to go along with her stable. Simply paste the green DuckTape onto the cardboard and pop it into the tree trunk. So now she has a stable to keep her horses!
