Hattingdon is so pretty in pink in this Chanel inspired fashion hat. Vivian named the hat Harper. But there is much more to the story.
Harper is the second Hattingdon horse created by Vivian.
Curtis was the first and only Hattingdon for a long time — about two years.
Curtis merchandise did very well. We saw Curtis tee shirts all around the D.C. area, and eventually around the country and other countries too. This helped us immensely in raising the necessary funds to lobby and take action on behalf of horses who were in harm’s way.
For those of you who do not know Curtis yet, here he is — Mrs Farrell’s first and truest love!
Is he handsome . . . or is he handsome?
Back to the Harper story.
Staff continued to bug Mrs Farrell about creating another “Hattingdon”. So one snowy evening in 2009, two years after she created Curtis (also on a snowy evening), she created Harper — a sophisticated, very girlish Hattingdon— and that is how Harper “was born.”
Hattingdon Horses is the cartoon horses’ series name, and each hat is given its own distinctive name.
Happy Flashback Friday.
