Walter at model show

Not once, but twice!

Walter, a real live horse, has been invited to attend the West Coast Model Horse Collector's Jamboree and introduce his own model likeness.
Humbly, he has accepted.

The Jamboree, in it's 11th year, will be held from August 16 to 18 at Fairplex Building Five in Pomona, California, and will attract model horse collectors from all over the country as well as Europe and Asia. Last year Walter was selected by Jamboree officials as a new model horse because he had just "written" a book, Walter Spills The Oats." Since the book is still selling very well, Sheryl Leisure, show producer and sculptress of Walter's model, thought he should have a second appearance so show goers could see first hand how much the model resembles the live horse.

Walter, a six-year-old black Quarter Horse gelding, lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with his owner and trainer, Don Blazer, internationally known author of horse books as well as the nationally-syndicated column, A Horse, Of Course. Walter's opinions or advice often appear in the column. Blazer admits Walter had a little "technical assistance" with his book since Walter has yet to master the computer keyboard.

Walter will have his own corral at the Jamboree and will be available to pats and pictures from fans and new acquaintances. His book will be packaged with his model and sold together at the show. To learn more about Walter, visit him on the Internet at
