Well, what can I say about Horace?
The head of the family, he proudly owns the biggest, fattest, thickest, beard in the family so far. He is very proud, but absolutely adorable.
He has a very kind heart and gentle nature, and leads the family with a quiet, fair hand, but, if anyone starts to overstep the mark, he will firmly put them in their place, and stop any nonsense getting out of hand.
He is looked up to by all the family, from the youngest with only a few hairs on their chin, to the oldest who......also only have a few hairs left on their chins!! All the girls love him of course.
But his garden is his passion, and so he chose a dark blue body, and light blue hat, and asked me to make a bouquet of flowers from his garden to go onto his hat. It was an honour. With just a couple of others flowers on the other side of his hat and the tip, he was a very happy gnome.
All the male gnomes are basically the same size. (Don't tell them!) They all stand approx 9.25"/23.5cm tall and have a waist of 12.25"/31.5cm. BUT no two gnomes are exactly the same. Well they wouldnt be really would they, we are all different!
Their bases contain 500g of rice, so they are quite weighty and therefore I would always suggest that they are lifted by the base.
They enjoy having their beards brushed to look their best at all times. (Well you never know when a good looking lady gnome might come visiting!!)
They can be made to work as door stops (ignore their complaints about 'The Crimes Against Gnomes Act' or, like mine, are just allowed to be ornaments, being preened and living the life of luxury.
