    • I bought a tube of toy farm animals at the craft store. The pigs and a sheep are about the right size for 1:24th scale, my scale. The horses were a bit to small. I think the tube of them was like $2, I don't exactly remember, but I know it wasn't much.

    • If you can find them, Toys R Us has their 50% sale going now on Schleich Toys, tons of horses in various poses for G scale (1/32 to 1/16 scale)

      If I posted them, they wouldn't be secret.

      Beware the animal secrets...

      Oh my, the last 2 cells are twitching, oh no! brain cramp.

       

       

      Unfortunately, those don't appear to be draft horse poses. Perhaps better in a coral next to your wagon ... none of them looked resigned to pull.*

    • A couple days ago, I bought a pair of horses from Just Plain Folks while at ECLSTS. $35. Seems quite steep, but they're Safari brand, and nicely detailed / painted.  And I need a nice team for an ore wagon I want to make.

       

      But, for garden variety horses... I was poking around and saw that Walmart offers a dozen plastic horses. These appear to have much less detail & paint quality than the Safari horses I bought. And no scale is stated. However, for $36 +$11 s/h, maybe they're looking purty good.

      Digging deeper though, the same set can be had by the seller for $13 + $5 s/h. And they declare the size to be about 4.5" long, which is good enough for me.

      So I just ordered a couple sets (24) for $31 total. I'll let you know whether or not this was a tragic mistake....

       

      Anyway, feel free to post here about your secret animal resources...

    • Includes most scales except 1:29.  No 1;13.7, either.  Still, pretty good.  

       

      Bookmarked.

      Maybe Boomer can learn some new tricks from that article .

    • What a coincidence that Ken should say that. Yesterday I received a registered letter from the SPKC (Society for the Prevention of Kindness to Chickens) reminding me that this place is limited to one "Rooster" by international law. Now ain't that the darnedest thing you ever heard of?

       

      It also included a great recipe for chicken and dumplings.....

      I know your already doing him ...but you could do a crazier version ... for another prize ..you did say it's easer doing them together.. 

       

      I thought Rooster was crazy enough already, you probably mean a more sane version.
