He is tall at 17 inches.. 20 inches if you count his fuzzy ears.
He is dressed in a lined Red Herringbone and silk vest.
He is made with Mohair, soft Alpaca wool and white Shropshire wool.
(I will tell you about this wonderful wool in another post.
Horatio Hopalong is his name and he is jointed in arms and legs, so he is able to wave his arms about, and he can stand...
OR he can sit on his fuzzy bum.
He has pink toes, whiskers and eyebrow hairs.
His large amber glass eyes see everything.
His head and neck are articulated and able to move in ANY direction.
I really like him!
It requires a good deal of time to create a bun.
He is perfectly kissable.
He's my new buddy.
I wanted you to see him, because this is how I am making my rabbits, squirrels, rats and cats.
In the Spring, many of my characters will be ready to hop to new homes. I will put them on my website and bring them to shows. You may want to adopt your very own Hopalong, Fuzzyfoot, Whiskerkin, Bunwinkie or Featherweight.
Fondly from the Hollow, Jeri and Horatio Hopalong
