LEGO for the Horse-Mad Child

Updated on April 26, 2014

LEGO Horses and Stables Keep Children Happy

Lots of children go through a horse-mad stage, but not every parent can afford to indulge them with a real pony. I raise cattle but have a few horses and four little ponies. I find that when the weather is good and you put a child on one of them they have a great time. However, if you expect them to catch them, brush them, clean their hooves and saddle them it is a different matter entirely. And then there's the weather - too hot, too cold, too windy or too wet.

While the real horses and ponies are getting fat out in the paddock, the horses of the LEGO set Heartlake Stables get a good workout whatever the weather. LEGO friends kits are aimed at girls, hence the pinks and purples, but I've found boys like this one too.
