I love carousel horses. I have a nice collection of them. There are plenty I've passed up that I'd love to have, but I've got some that are really special. Sure wish I could afford one of the real figures. ...If wishes were horses beggers would ride. Anyway, I'm going to get some pictures of my collection up sometime. Same ol' problem of actually getting film developed. They're just not the type of thing you can scan right in.
In the meantime, check out these links:
- For anyone who loves carousel horses, their first stop should be at Carousel!. Art, museums, music, stamps: if it has to do with carousels, you'll find it here.
- If you want to find a way to support carousels, check out The American Carousel Museum. Benifits of a museum membership include: Free admission to the Museum, Museum newsletter, Carousel Curator, 10% discount at the Brass Ring gift shop, use of Museum reference library and archives, carousel animal identification assistance, and preview of new exhibits.
- A Carousel for Missoula is a fairly recently built wood carved carousel. You can also take a look at a description and photo of the Missoula Carousel's Pony of the Month.
- A collector can never have too many horses. If you're looking for something really special to add to your collection, or if you you just want to dream, take a look at Exquisite Carousel Creations. These horses would be welcome in almost any carousel collection.
