Hi,im new here
« on: April 13, 2012, 05:25:44 PM »
Hi,my names james and just found this forum.I loved follfoot as a child,BUT our nanny would never allow the tv to be switched on for me to watch,so the only episodes i did watch was when we were on holidays from school and our nanny was away on holiday.I,because of my back ground was always on doras side,her family were like ours and i assosiated with this.I am from a very wealthy family,i do have the horses,stables country estate and castle.As a child,when at home we did not have too many friends,and even less horsey ones so all 4 of us would watch FF,then get the video camera and re-inact the episode with our horses.I became quite good at falling off and getting the horses to stand as i got off or fell off,just like dora and steve did.I wish i could find the videos,they are around some where.I remember my friend debbie playing the part of doras mother and she had a wig on made from flaxen horse hair.She also played dora,complete with copper,he  was called barney,and realy did look just like doras copper.Our stables look just like the ones at doras uncles house, we have 40 stables with the same glass overhang and the same rought iron and wood stables with brass hay racks etc.We have the lake,etc etc etc and had a great time acting out all the scenes.Anyway,thats me and i hope to read all of your experiences with follyfoot to.  JAMES

Welcome James - lovely to have you on board.   >44<  So glad you've found Follyfoot again after it being such an important part of your childhood.  :)   The re-enactments must have been fun.    ;)

Hi James. Very glad to know you are a fan and a warm welcome here. Dora's care of horses obviously impressed you very much. Was she your type, or is that a silly question?

Don't worry James, Mr Loopy feels the same as you about Dora.
