Today I thought that I would show you the Sindy horse that Naomi got me for my birthday last week.
Sindy has had several horses over the years although her “Pony Club ” outfit preceded all of them. The first horse appeared in 1966 and was issued in grey flock then later in brown plastic. There is quite an interesting piece in on the Sindy Museum website about the manufacture and distribution of this horse which you can read here . The article mentions that the horse was named “Peanuts” after a competition in a comic book. Although the article does not say so this would be “June & Schoolfriend” a comic which featured a lot of Sindy advertising. Incidentally”June” and “Schoolfriend” were originally separate comics which merged sometime in the early sixties. I remember this comic as our older cousin used to get it while I had “Bunty” and “Judy”.
