Sindy And Her Horse: 1976
On my site hay-net.co.uk there is a great forum topic at the moment where everyone is talking about their early childhood memories with horses. It brought it back to me today about when my lovely dad (who I miss terribly) bought me in 1976, a Sindy and her horse. I was in hospital for a few days having my adenoids out which seemed to be fashionable I think to whip them out in the seventies. I remember clearly sitting in bed coming round and all groggy from the anaethestic, with my dad beside my bed holding a big Gamleys bag.
Imagine my utter delight when I saw inside a Sindy and her horse. It was just like this one posted here. I honestly think that this was the first sign of me getting the horse bug. I played for hours with Sindy and the kit that came with it. This came complete with a red curry comb, a nose bag, bucket, broom and a rosette!
