I'm 21 and live in the midlands in England, I've been collecting Julips amoung other models for as long as I can remember! I was on the previous j club forum and recently stumbled across this new one (I didn't even realise it existed anymore-oops!) so it's nice to be back!
I started riding when I was 8 and have owned a couple of horses but due to lack of time I don't have one at the moment I do however have 2 dogs, a rabbit and a tortoise.
I'm Janneke, I'm Dutch and I have a little crush on Julips, (thanks to Christine's blog and Deviantart) although I don't own any yet. But that's hopefully going to change soon, as I'm right now in the process of getting a portrait model of my dearest mare.
I used to have a pile of Grand Champions (still have them actually, they're just safely tucked away). I've always been a creative one: I love drawing, crafting, photography, sculpting and making jewelry. I really liked making little tidbits for my ponies, so I'm pretty sure I'll end op replicating my horse attire in miniature form to match the Julip.
I've studied biology, am now working as a science journalist and photography and plan to go back to university to start my phd next year.
Like I mentioned above I've got a lovely Dutch warmblood mare that I compete with in midlevel dressage and soon in showjumping. All very exciting!
And yeah. That's it for now. Really looking forward to exploring the forum further and glare over all the pretty Julips and tidbits all of you own.
Welcome to Julips! We have a couple of things in common as I studied biology and am just trying to finish my PhD - my work took me to the Netherlands for a month back in 2011 and I loved it there Looking forward to seeing you start your Julip collection!
I started collecting back in 1980 with Thelwell models now last year I came back to model collecting and have Schliech, Equorums, Breyer, Collecta and waiting for my first Julip to be posted out to me this week. I have been involved with ponies since the age of two owning my own and working in stables through the years. I also have shown Shetland Sheepdogs and now have a small herd of Guinea Pigs that I show. Joined the forum a couple of months ago but not posted much but now joining the Julip collectors I will be able too. My favorite models are Schliech, Equorums and Julip. I used the name Dantelsh as its a mix up of Shetland but my real name is Gail
yes you can quickly become over run with Guinea pigs some of my friends that show and have shed have around 60 (Gulp!) I like to keep up to 15 as i can manage that got 10 at the moment. its funny but in the real pony world a lot of people have pigs as well as horses/ponies. and yah for equorums
i can see i will fit in well here nice to meet you all
