Annabel's Blog
Last batch of Spares

Hazel, Nat & I made our last batch of horses shortly before Laura took over which I was supposed to take to Lydia's Julip Live at the end of September. Unfortunately a nasty virus prevented me from attending but they are still available. I am currently maning and tailing them. Please phone 01460 78961 or email for more information.


11th November 2012

Both Hazel & Annabel are writing the blog today, on this day of Remembrance, which we at Julip observed on the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month. May those that gave their lives for our freedom, rest in peace. We will remember.

It's been go, go, go here! Julip Originals are well and truly back in full production, impressively we were up at 7:00am (going some for a Sunday!), but what a herd is being created. We've just been working on the next batch of spares, 10 4-legged friends and 3 young riders, alongside all of your Christmas orders. Hopefully we'll be taking pictures a bit later to show you all! Annabel has been going a bit mad with her special sculptures, there's a rather Araby looking Arab Stallion, dropped head, very dish face that is coming along nicely, along with a dropped head Welsh Pony amongst others. It is rather exciting! Also we are preparing some rather unique Christmas foals for the attendees of the Julip Chirstmas Party, ho, ho, ho!!!

If you'd like any more information please do not hesitate to contact us. Call 01460 78961 (yes we will answer the phone even though it's Sunday), or email

Julip Christmas Party Schedule


Hazel and Annabel have been planning the first Julip Christmas Party!


As you all know, Annabel is rather keen on her dioramas, so we have many themes for the Christmas party classes. Section 1 includes the ‘Scene’ Classes, Section 2 Ridden and Inhand Classes and Section 3 Christmas Fun Classes. We have a few themes for the ridden and inhand classes too, especially ‘From Russia with Love’; we’re thinking snowy backdrops, Cossack hats, Faberge, Anastasia, opulence! This day will be all about having fun, playing games, eating, drinking (non-alcohol if you’re driving), singing and making sure you and your Julips have the best Christmas day out ever!


Section 1

‘Twas the night before Christmas’

The Nativity

Boxing Day B movie (Hazel’s favourite is ‘The Black Stallion’ and Annabel’s ‘Towering Inferno’ and ‘The Poseidon Adventure’!


Section 2

For the ridden classes:

‘From Russia With Love’

Olympia (encompassing anything from the show)

Boxing Day Ride



Best dressed Christmas Julip

Santa’s little helper


Section 3

Christmas pudding (blacks/browns)

Cinnamon (bays)

Mistletoe (white/pale Julips)

Frost (dappled and other grey)

Brandy Butter (cream/palomino)

Holly Berry (chestnuts)

Christmas Tree (patches)

Starry Skies (spotteds)


On top of all that fun, we are also having a PYO Christmas foal (provided by Julip, and it certainly will be a one off, expect plenty of glitter!), we are also giving a prize to the most tasteless Christmas accessory worn on the day, a pass the parcel with a super surprise in every layer, Christmas charades, and we are also asking you to provide a hand-made Christmas decoration for our tree! For those who arrive the night before, we’ll be organising our usual supper in the Fox and Hounds, where we will also be making paper chains to decorate to hall the next morning. The show starts at 10:00am, but we’ll open the doors at 9:00am, and those that come early will be obliged to eat mince pies, sing carols and decorate the tree! As ever, a Christmassy lunch and refreshments will be provided. In case you hadn’t realised, we can’t wait! All you have to do is get here.


Silly Santa hats most welcome!



Hazel is back next weekend, so more updates and a full schedule with times to follow! Email anytime with any questions, and please don’t forget to let us know you are coming! We’ll need to book supper at the Fox and Hounds early so please email asap if you would like to come.


Although this is a Julip Show, we would welcome all family and friends that would like to join us. The more the merrier!!

Well, Nat has been here again this weekend and has delivered some more of her beautiful riders for us! They have been posted on our flickr site here or here


Please email for details or to be emailed a picture if you can't see this one. There are a side saddle lady, a huntsman, a show rider and an event rider. There are also some lovely model horse spares on their way, but at the moment they are bald, poor things! Hopefully Hazel will be back down soon to finish them off for you!

11th March 2012


Hazel here again. Well, Nat has come down this weekend, so I have been busy painting rider bodies for her to turn into Julip people! She's managed to finish 3 of them for us so I'm on to list them for sale!
