Ever since I can remember I have loved horses. My grandmother is a massive horse fan, and, as she was my idol as a child, I'd imagine that some of her love for these beautiful creatures rubbed off on me. Over the years, my passion for horses has waned a little. I am less fussed now about purchasing items with a horse on, or wanting to go out to the local stables than I was when I was younger.
I loved to ride, and collect all sorts of horsey related items. I has everything from the gear to wear whilst at the stables and riding the horses to ornaments to cuddly toys to clothing. Most of it has been sold, or passed on to a new generation of horsey lovers, but I still have a small collection of horse items in my sideboard at home.
I will always consider horses to be my favourite animal, but my life has changed, and my priorities with it.
These days my focus is my daughter - whose favourite animal is giraffes!
