Greetings from all of us at Hattingdon & Co. We are in celebration mode here!
Today is the 10th anniversary of the creation — or birthday — of our beloved Harper Hattingdon.
Our very first Hattingdon was of course Curtis Hattingdon.
We introduced our second Hattingdon, a brown female version of the original cartoon wearing a Chanel inspired hat in fashion house pink and called it Harper.
Vivian Farrell, the creator of Hattingdon Horses®, didn’t know at the time she designed Harper that she would eventually make literally 100’s of hat designs for this version of the cartoon.
Over time, Vivian began calling her simply Hattingdon and giving individual names to the hat designs instead.
The Harper Hattingdon design has become iconic and one of the most popular designs in the Hattingdon Horses® line.
The only thing that has changed over the years is her mane. When Harper was originally created she had no mane! But that’s another other story. If you are interested, check out our Hat-Story to learn more.
Happy Birthday Harper! She’s a real beauty isn’t she?
See ya later birthday celebrating alligators.
