Welcome to Little Horsepower

 

This site is all about my favorite childhood toys--Johnny West and The Best of the West!  When my parents moved our family down to Florida from Canada in 1969, I was unable to bring my whole collection of Johnny West stuff.  Parting with my favorite toys was hard.  Once in Florida and through the years, I had many other things to worry about.  Now that I'm older, I found I was longing for that connection to my youth.  It all started when my husband of 27 years got me a Johnny West doll and the Covered Wagon with the wheeled horse for Christmas in 2012.  It's his fault :) ...I'm hooked again. I have managed to get back almost all the pieces I had when I was a kid, and then some.  I used to repaint horses (Breyers mostly) but did some Marx horses, and find that I enjoyed doing that; so I have started doing it again.  Pictures will be posted as they are complete.

Enjoy your visit here.  

What's new in the 1:6 scale cattle department?  I painted these two sculpts made by Luis Aguilar (below).
You can see more photos on the links on my Cattle 1:6 Customs page.

My brother, Billy, made props for me back then; and he's made more for my Johnny West clan making 1:6 scale props.  The tack was made by me back in the 70's!
