Today marks the beginning of a new year and for AG fans such as ourselves, that means one GOTY leaves and a new one takes her place. I originally planned for this to be an ordinary photoshoot, but I think it can be more than that. This is a special photoshoot just for Saige. To tell her that we will always love her 🙂
Saige looks absolutely stunning in her Sparkle Dress. This outfit is so much better in person. The pictures do not do it justice.
These boots are just the cutest little things! The detail is amazing!
Here you can see the detail of the necklace and the dress. Both are so gorgeous!
And of course, the hairstyle adds to the outfit. Saige’s hair is curled and pulled back with tiny black clips. A cute style for any day!
Being the horse-lover that she is, Saige wanted Penny to be in the last couple of pictures 🙂
Saige giving Penny a kiss, aww!! <3
Do you have Saige?
Today I wanted to get out my sister’s AG Doll Bin and just look through her stuff. Whenever I get it out I always look at her old catalog.
This is a picture of the front of the catalog. It’s the 1998 Holiday Catalog!
Who is that? Could it be? Yes, it’s Felicity’s horse, Penny in the Girl of Today section!!
She was called “American Girl Horse”. In this catalog Felicity doesn’t even have Penny or any stable-ish things, just her riding outfits.
I think it is SO weird and kinda cheap of AG to use an old Girl of Today Horse to be Penny. Why don’t they just make a brand new one?
Just in case you wanna know, here’s what it says about her:
“What a beauty! Braid her thick brown mane and tail, and stroke her velvety coat. Then position the royal blue saddle blanket and leather saddle, adjust the stirrups, take up the reins, and you’re off! Don’t forget to give her the name you’ve always dreamed of for a horse of your own.”
She sold for $58.
I just looked at a catalog that has “Penny” in it. Here’s something else interesting:
She is still called “American Girl Horse” and was sold for $75.
The description says:
“This beautiful horse looks just like Penny! Includes attached reins, a royal blue saddle blanket, and a faux leather saddle.”
This is all just so weird.. and can you believe how much they raised the price of her?? It’s ridiculous!
What are your thoughts about this?
It was a busy day in the stables today. We were getting a foal and Felicity, Saige, and Annika were making all of the preparations.
Just when Saige was going to ask, “When will she get here?” mommy (me 😛 ) called out, “Girls! One of you needs to come out and get your new foal settled!”
Saige- “I’ll do it!!”
Annika- “I’m so excited to meet her! I wonder what she looks like…”
Felicity- “Probably adorable and beautiful!!” The sisters giggled with excitement!
Saige- “Here she is!”
Felicity- “Oooooh! Look at her eyes! She is so pretty!!”
Annika- “She’s adorable!!!”
Saige- “Isn’t she?!?” She sighed, “Girls, we have a problem. When we were leading her out of the trailer she stumbled. Her leg got scratched.”
Annika- “Oh, poor little thing! Don’t worry we’ll fix you up.”
Felicity- “I’ll lead Penny into the fields so you can have more room to work. Let me know when to lead her back in.”
So, Annika and Saige set to work!
Saige- “Easy, girl- easy!”
Annika- “Come here sweetie, I have to bandage you up.”
Annika- “There you are- good as new!”
Saige- “We’ll have to keep an eye on that leg, but she should mend in no time at all!”
The girls groomed her until she was nice and clean.
Annika watched her eat while Saige and Felicity talked about her injury.
Felicity- “Awww!! They look so sweet together!” She said as they watched Penny and her new friend eating.
Saige- “They sure do! Hey, what are we going to name her?”
Annika- “I have a suggestion.”
Felicity- “What is it?”
Annika- “Well, I’ve been reading the Lord of the Rings books and there are lots of interesting and beautiful names in there. So, today when I was reading there was a mini story about the Lady of Luthien. Why not name her Luthien?
Saige- “Oh, I love it! It’s so pretty!”
Felicity- “I think it’s unanimous, cause I love it, too!”
Annika- “Alright, Luthien it is!”
All of the girls love little Luthien 🙂
Today me and my mom went to Target. I was planning on purchasing a Laptop set from OG for $7, but they didn’t have it. When I saw this foal I knew I had to have her! She is a Morgan horse (which is the breed I ride), beautiful, and she came with a lot of accessories for only $18.99!!
I had such a hard time trying to decide on what to name her. I knew I wanted to name her something from LOTR. I wrote down a lot of names and I finally decided on Luthien. If you’re wondering how it’s pronounced it’s said like this:
Looth- ee- en
I’ll be doing a review on the whole set soon 🙂
Do you have a horse for your doll(s)?
