Only upon reviewing the year, did I realize that 2012 was a bumper year for acquiring vintage art! Mostly large in scale.

I enjoyed riding at summer camp as a kid, but I was never one of those “horsey people”. What happened?! Look around my house and you’ll see, I’m not just the crazy bird lady, fawner of fawns, but now I’m prone to horse-hoarding. Let’s call it chronic equestrian assemblage, shall we?
