I hope you guys will enjoy this tag that I made in honor of IMTM, International Model Tack Month!

Here are my answers:

1. I started making tack in November of 2018! Daisy Stalls and Schleich Horse Lover 200 were my inspirations. 
2. I use a variety of materials, felt, ribbon, faux leather, real leather and cotton fabric!
3. I make Schleich 1:18, Breyer Traditional 1:9 and Breyer Classic 1:12 scale tack.
4. The biggest tack set I've ever made is a green english riding set that I made in 2019.
5. I enjoy making halters the most! But I do like my new style of blanket, and saddlepads too.
6. The easiest tack piece to make is leadropes XD
7. I prefer using buckles because they are more adjustable and more realistic.
8. I make my own hardware!
9. I have a lot of favorites, but probably one of @infinity_breyer's stablesets or a stableset by @rostagno_arts! 
10. I like making realistic tack over fun, non-realisic tack!

That's a wrap!

Welcome to my new blog!

Hi everyone! My name is Kaycee, and you might know me from my Instagram , and my tack shop, TNT TACK . I seriously started collecting model horses in November of 2018 and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Currently I have 60+ models in all scales, but my main focus is, Schleich. I'm sure you've heard of Desktop Stables , and her love for horses, in miniature! When I first found Nichelle's blog, I was astonished with the craftsmanship of her work, and also the inspiring and comical posts. To this day, I enjoy reading her BreyerWest updates, and seeing her experimental tack pieces.  In honor of this, I wanted to give back to the model horse community and share some of my knowledge to hopefully inspire some collectors just like Nichelle did for me! Be sure to share my blog with your horsey friends, and maybe drop a comment down below.  That's a wrap! ~Kaycee😁

Showstring Organization

Happy Wednesday! I’m sure pretty much every single person reading this post is most likely in quarantine and you are most likely bored out of your tree. Whether you are a photo shower, live shower, or just a collector of plastic ponies, you should have your collection organized in some way. This post is more directed to showers, but maybe this will bring some inspiration to some non-showers as well. About a week ago, Kristen from @bluemountainstable (go checkout her social medias!) did a live video on her Instagram story showing how she's organizing her ribbons and collection.  I got instantly inspired, so that's what I decided to do as well.  I began by getting all of my ribbons together and sorted them into piles for each model that received each ribbon.  Then, I grabbed my laptop, and opened up Google Sheets. I made a page that is my Model Horse Showstring. I split it up into my OF Models, and my CM models. Just a tip, organize your models in alphabe
