Today I'm posting my bio, so that you can all get a feel for the person behind the posts.
As I said in my short intro last Wednesday, my name is Lynn Weber. I have been on the NAMHSA Board of Directors since May 2009 when I became the Website Manager, and I was appointed to another term beginning in May 2012. I enjoy being on the BOD and seeing the inner workings of the organization. I've been in Region 5 since 2000, and prior to that I lived in Montana and held three NAN-qualifying shows (Big Sky Live) there. I typically get to 2-3 shows a year and usually get to Breyerfest and NAN in even years. I have been judging for three years in Texas, and judged at Heart of the Rockies Live in Montana.
I got my first Breyer sometime before I turned 8. I think it was the palomino Western Horse, but Misty and Stormy have been with me for a very long time, I don't remember a time without any of them. I collect a little of everything now, I have just under 600 models. My collection is about 5/6 OF, with about 2/3 of that being Breyer, and the rest Stone and OF china/resin. The remaining 1/6 is spilt between resins and customs. I have a penchant for the Stone Pony (English only, please!), G2 appaloosa and saddlebred molds, and love all stock horses and the colorful warmbloods and ponies. I show in all divisions, including performance, but I only dabble a little in it. I paint/pastel a lot of my customs and resins and I find equine color genetics fascinating.
In my home life, I've been married for over 21 years, and have a 19 year old son, and 17 year old daughter with Silver and Nakota mold addictions (yes, she shows too). I work from home part-time doing web site design, which is why being NAMHSA's Web Manager, and now Facebooker and Blogger, is a great fit for me.
