10 Model Horse Half Term Projects

If (like me, loving this school holiday work schedule) you are on half term right now you will suddenly find yourself with lots of spare time (unless you have exams of course, in which case why are you reading this? You should be revising! Go make a cup of tea and get back to work, YOU CAN DO IT YOUNG POTATO).

OK inspirational exam talk over. Let's have a look at some fun projects to keep you occupied over the holidays :)

1. Cataloging

It needs doing! Stop putting it off! Get that collection catalogued. If you want to learn how to put together your own spreadsheet check out this tutorial here:

2. Create a FB Page/Website for your Models

What could be more fun than your own website/blog/facebook page devoted to your model horses! Maybe you will do one for your custom studio or your stud or maybe just a fun place to share images of your models. If you do create one let me know and I'll share it with the followers :D

3. Write up Your Show Results

Dig into that body boxes, or those boxes and boxes of tack and have a bit of a clear out. Maybe you could put some items to one side to donate to a raffle at your next show? Or sell off some unwanted projects to raise some money for a new horse!
