Mini Hazel

I recently received my copy of Morgen Kilbourn's Mini Hazel, and she's gorgeous. Simply stunning. The cast is beautiful, second only to the clean casts from Sarah Rose, and by just a tiny hair.

Mini Hazel has me smitten, but she's a BIG girl. She's going to need her own patterns, her own tack, her own props. Morgen lists her at 1:30 scale, and there's no way she can share with some of the other large mini performance horses out there.
