A plug for the kid…

Many of you know that my daughter, Hilary, has been drawing and sculpting horses for well nigh her whole life. She was commissioned to make a model for a company that makes model horses in both resin (polyurethane), which are pretty much made by hand, and plastic which is a mass-produced two- or three-part steel injection mold process. The resins have sold out and can only be purchased from the few lucky buyers who glommed onto them at light speed, and wouldn’t give them up even if you pounded their heads with nerf bats for weeks on end. The plastics, however, are slowly being made available at premium prices before the model is finally cranked out by young slaves in China till everyone on earth will own at least two of them, maybe three. Right now, if you act fast, you can find one on eBay. (I bought one!) They’re eighty bucks plus shipping. Out of the original 150, only about a dozen remain. Act now!

Thanks for the plug!

It doesn't really affect me if the world consumes two or two billion of those at this point, but it would be fun to see them on shelves at the local feed store and Wal-Mart and Starbucks!

I can't wait to see the one you bought. I haven't seen that sculpture since I placed it into the hands of Peter Stone himself, at least a year ago. I hope they didn't ruin its finesse with their solid steel injection molds and Chinese manufacture of billions. Everyone in the world will own at least two, or even three.
