A Horse of Course

Walter's for sale!
by Don Blazer

But Walter, a black Quarter Horse, honorary author of Walter Spills The Oats, and a frequent subject of writer Don Blazer's nationally syndicated column, A Horse, Of Course, has no intention of leaving his happy home with Blazer.

You see, what's on the market is a sculpted, perfectly-detailed resin model of Walter.

Not only is the model of Walter available on the Internet, but his resin likeness will be introduced at the 11th annual West Coast Model Horse Collectors Jamboree to be held August 16 to 18 at the Fairplex Building 5 in Pomona, California. The event will attract model horse collectors from all over the country as well as Europe and Asia. Walter will be there in person to show how the model resembles the real live horse.

Sheryl Leisure, noted model designer and producer of the collectors Jamboree, spent weeks immortalizing Walter's equine likeness. First she took photos of Walter in motion. From the photos she made sketches of Walter in different poses, then selected the pose she wanted for the model. Leisure then turned the sketches into a clay figure. She added and took away clay until Walter looked just like himself. She sculpted the horse figure and cast the master mold.

Walter has earned his recognition by expressing his opinion about horse owners, horse shows, horse health, horse history and famous horses through Blazer's column. In addition to his literary fame, he's been a movie star, a retail promotional guy, a college course assistant and a performance horse.Walter's model, with a copy of his book, is $75, plus postage, and $65, plus postage, without his book.

Walter's exact image is 12 inches long and 7 3/4inches high. He is wearing a red blanket with his name embroidered across the side. The model is packaged in a clear blister tray and the blister package is sent in a special shipping carton.

Pictures of Walter and his model can be seen on the Internet at

At present, Walter's model can only be ordered on the Internet or by sending checks, plus $9 postage, to Success Is Easy, 7119 East Shea Blvd., Ste 109-271, Scottsdale, AZ 85254. Models cannot be shipped prior to August 20 due to Walter's agreement to be at the Jamboree and introduce his model and sign his book.
