She's a brunette, but she's what's called a 'two tone' Skipper, because her hair is rooted with a combination of brown and red hairs.
It looks great.
|"Do you think these jodhpurs make my butt look big?" The cool barn is by Melissa and Doug. I think the horse is a Barbie horse. The wooden manger hanging in the barn is a guinea pig feeder from the pet section of Ollie's.|
Learning to Ride coordinates with Barbie's Riding in the Park, from 1966-67.
|Riding in the Park.|
|They liked these outfits so much they had their pictures put on a case wearing them! (That is, they were wearing the outfits. The case wasn't...)|
Learning to Ride consists of a sleeveless red shirt...
|Don't confuse this shirt with the sleeveless red shirt to Skipper's Sledding Fun. That one has a turtle neck.|
...and hat,black gloves...
|I only have one.|
In spite of owning this really keen riding outfit, Skipper can't actually sit on a horse...
|This involved some weird sideways splits to achieve.|
|"Well I hope you understand that I can't actually ride you. But you had a nice brushing, right?"|
|Sorry about the riding thing."|
|"Are you mad at me?"|
|"I can't help it. It's a 'straight leg' thing."|
|"I'm sorry. So are we still friends?"|
|"You know I love you."|
|"Aww. Good guy."|
|"Ok. Now come on and get back in your stall."|
|"Right in there. Yeah, come on."|
|"You are seriously not going to get in your stall? I said I'm sorry."|
|"That's more like it, Good boy."|
|Now for the least fun part of owning a horse...|
Tomorrow is the big doll show in Columbus, (Ohio). I'm going to try to get some sleep because I have to get up super early to get there in time to have some pre-opening shopping time after we get our table set up!
