Horsing AroundI'm not usually a horse person.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love all animals but I was never one of those girls who dreamed of a owning a pony. This one caught my eye, however.
I came across an auction for this bronze mid century horse during one of my regular trawls through ebay.
Here is a picture of the Brady horse as it appears in 'A Very Brady Sequel'.
And a shot of it in season one of the original television show:
(If you're wondering why Bobby is looking so dejected, he's been wrongly accused of taking Cindy's Kitty Karry-All. Aww Shucks!)
This horse also seems to have appeared in Bewitched and the 1958 film Bell, Book and Candle (See Harpie's Bizarre for more details).
Although the Brady horse has a definite kitsch factor, I much prefer the highly stylised bronze ones for that retro chic look. And the patterns etched into their skinny little figures give them that extra touch of grooviness.
Both of these are still available on eBay right now - click on the pictures for a link to each auction.
