My name is Kristian Beverly, and welcome to my new blog!
Since this is the first post, here’s a bit about me.
I’ve been collecting model horses, particularly Breyer horses, since I was in the single digits. I’ve gone on to travel to Breyerfest, judge, and show. Performance and tack making are my favorite aspects of the hobby but over the years I’ve partaken in pedigree assignment, photo shows, and customizing. The hobby is vast so there’s something for everyone.
Eight years ago I created Five Paws Studio. It’d been born from lots of poking from my friend Madison.
In the years of having the blog, I graduated from high school, graduated from college, made lots of tack, participated in many shows, and lost four of the five pets that’d made up the whole Five Paws part.
This year it really hit me that I’d outgrown the Blogger platform. Initially, Blogger had a more controllable platform for creators. It also had a phone app. Things have slowly simplified and now I want more control (and a phone app). Hello WordPress!
This blog will be similar to Five Paws Studio. Plastic pony talk and tack. But there’ll be more book talk! I read a bit of everything. Nonfiction, fiction, teen, middle grade. If it’s good, I’ll give it a try.
So hello 2020s. May the odds be ever in our favor.
