Vivian is experimenting with Hattingdon art posters. We are getting a lot of interest in it.
For fun, she created a multi image poster using the Splash hat design, and adding a black border so we can see what it might look like framed.
What do you think?
Vivian is very busy deciding on what print-on-demand company to use for Hattingdon products. There have been a lot of changes lately among the vendors we have used — some good; some not so good. And some new ones. So she is ordering samples, and hopefully will make a final decision very soon. Stay tuned!
Greetings and salutations. There is some big time nostalgia going on here today. Both of these designs launched Hattingdon Horses, and made them the incredibly popular cartoon horses they became.
Let’s get down to business. Here are Vivian’s selections.
When this hat was created all those many moons ago, neither Vivian nor any of the rest of us had any idea just how cherished the Savannah hat would become. Hattingdon Horses really began with Curtis, Savannah and Star, and of course, Belle. They were our Fab Four in our early years.
The Savannah classic hat is created in the most luscious shade of lipstick pink with three white lilies dancing across the across the front. Simply sweet . . . . adorable.
Then there was Star.
Star Hattingdon wears a black cowboy hat with a blue hatband, and a white star.
Curtis launched Hattingdon Horses and will forever be an icon. However, from the moment of his appearance, Star became a superstar for oh so many years, and is still going strong today.

UPDATE! Seems like December is “logo” month. We reported earlier this year how very happy we were to find a nice, simple, easily identifiable logo for Hattingdon, as we had toiled off and on for years trying to come up something.
We finally came up with this one. Pure and simple. A single letter ‘H”, in Hattingdon’s signature brown and font. But we have a new one, but we are also keeping this one. They work well together. You will what we mean in a few moments. So keep going!
We hope you love it as much as we do. It only took us about 10 years or so. Hahahaha!
We will be using both but predominantly the single letter H in Hattingdon Brown. It has really taken off with everybody. Thank you for your input and help.
Mrs Farrell, the creator of Hattingdon® Horses, has made many, many hats for the popular cartoon equines over the years — hundreds of them. Amazingly she never seems to run out of ideas. The ones that are shall we say — a bit “extraordinary” — always seem to be her favourites. Here is an example.
At the beginning of last year, Farrell opened Photoshop, selected one of her basic templates, and began adding layers of lines and boxes and rectangles until she had what you see below.
It has a sort of Deco / Japanese flavor to it, doesn’t it?
See you again soon!
P.S. Wondering about the name Kimora? Combining Kimberly and Ora, it has American origins and means “the golden meadow.” This stylish name is shared with American model and designer Kimora Lee Simmons, who founded the Baby Phat clothing line. Source.
