The following are selected images of the personal model horse collection of Karen Grimm.
Lots of photos to load so be patient!
Hello and welcome to the model horse wing! The current display area is a total wing on our house, aprox. 1250 sq.'. I have on display, the majority of my own collection, with most Breyer, Hagen-Renaker, Beswick, North Light, and BHR Collection. I own over 7,000+ model horses, and can arrange for visits if you call me in advance! Enjoy the photos, and these are just a sample of them.

OK, so there is the upgraded Model Horse Tour!
Mind you, I do not have room to display ALL my collection, and many of my favorites are not out until I either build an indoor arena with a mezanine to put them in, or find another place for them. These include Leftons, Peter Stones, Metlox, Melba Ware, Dodge Foundry, Mortens Studio, and other china horse manufacturers. Also not shown is my dog and cat collections (mainly ceramic), the famous "ugly chicken collection", and large cattle ceramics. For the moment, this is all that this wing of the house will hold.
Thanks for being patient while images load, and for visiting the Model Horse Room!
Let me know what you think of it.... Modelhorse
