Breyerfest 2016 Horses!

My box of Breyerfest horses arrived, all safe and sound thank goodness! A box from my friend arrived on the same day, containing this adorable classic (Ariat 2007 limited editon) She has really beautiful shading such a sweet face!



I’ll start off with my first special run time. I was ticket number 67, and they pulled 110, so I was WAY back in the line. I was certain my first two picks, the Samba Surprise and Bozeman would be long gone, as my time was also at the end of the day. To my surprise… I got them!!! πŸ˜€

Bozeman is such a beauty, Breyer did a magnificinet job of his roaning and even put pinking on his whites. His eyes are so cute, just a stunning model overall. Mine has no issues at all!


Next up is my Samba Surprise. Mine is the rarest realistic colour, second rarest overall and is limited to 627! He has very nice dapples and gorgeous eyes, and again no major flaws woohoo!


My second special run time was one of my favourite memories of Breyerfest! I again was number 67, and they pulled… Number 67!!!!!! I was so surprised, and it was so special to be first in line! I may have shrieked a little lol. I honestly can’t believe they pulled my number out of everyone’s tickets πŸ˜€

I got Mamacita y Chico and Sheila,  my third and fourth picks. Mamacita is stunning, and the sculpt is so beautiful and feminine. She has lovely subtle dapples and shading!


Chico is such a sweet little thing! They’re both sooty buckskins but of course Chico is very light as he’s a baby πŸ’• I’m so happy I got this set and am able to have them in my collection πŸ™‚



Sheila is beautiful, a very nicely shaded chestnut. I didn’t like her markings at first, but now they’ve grown on me and give her a lot more character. The mold is really nice and she has an adorable expression! 


My last special run was Namid, I bought her on Sunday when they were doing the free-for-all! They actually did a half matte and half glossy on her, which was cool! My mum bought her for me (I bought the rest of my horsesπŸ™‚) and I got matte, which I’m very happy with! The halter was given to me by a lovely little girl, and doesn’t it suit her? 


From the Mercado I bought Copabanca and Chiquita, and also got a t-shirt! Copabanca is very unique and done very nicely, and Chiquita is also well done and ADORABLE! I also purchased Amapa, the single day stablemate.

I only bought one store special, Diablo DC as I wasn’t a massive fan of Dag Dia. I was pleasantly surprised that they still had Diablo in stock, so I picked one with subtle dapples and nice eyes! He is absolutely stunning ❀️

Backtracking a little, the Clarion was an incredible experience amd I got some great deals! On Thursday I bought 2 more stablemate TWH’s for my conga (now at 10, yay!), A King’s Mount Breyer resin, a PS Pony, Oleary and WindtalkerπŸ’™ 


The Peter Stone pony is Wolfman’s Classic, a model that has lots of variations. I got the gelding with one blue eye and the belly spot, and I’m in love with him!


I had arranged to buy Oleary a few days before Breyerfest from someone on Instagram. I’ve wanted Oleary since I first started collecting Breyers, and I’m so thrilled to finally have him! He has some scratches and marks, but nothing major or very noticeable. Last night I made him a halter, dark green with light green crystals.

 
I made the decision to conga the Smarty Jones mold after I bought Windtalker. He was the first traditional horse I bought at Breyerfest, and I got him for a steal! He has a few little scratches but no overspray whatsoever on his markings, and a gorgeous blue eye!


I went back to the Clarion on Friday night for the Instagram meet, and met some really nice people! Afterwards I walked into a room, just browsing, and I saw Sato and Rushmore! Sato had been on my list and was a decent price, so I was going to buy him but before I could get him another girl bought him. I decided to buy Rushmore instead, and a girl reached up and pulled him off the shelf. She looked at him and put him back, so I grabbed him as fast as I could! I thought she put him back because he was too expensive or had some flaws, but I checked his price and it was half of what I expected!!! He had no major flaws and I’m incredibly glad to have him and bring my conga up to four!


The celebration horse is very nice, but so skinny! He isheavily dappled  and has interesting eyes, plus a pearly finish which is quite pretty.


At Breyerfest I bought some stablemates, the Competing at the Games set, some foals for $1 each, a TB foal for $3, American Pharoah and a beautifully shaded running TB for $2! 

My Best Buy from Breyerfest was when I went to the Clarion on Sunday and looked for a final horse to buy. I didn’t see anything I really wanted, as I was looking for another Stone. I went into the Black Horse Ranch room and looked around. I was just about to leave when I decided to have one more look, and saw a chestnut Old Mold Morgan sitting on a shelf. His price tag said 15, and I snatched him off the shelf and checked him over. He was absolutely flawless and I’m not kidding, I skipped over to the cashier and paid for him! I ended up paying $10 as they had a sale πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜€ It was a great way to end Breyerfest! I’ll post another post about Breyerfest later πŸ™‚

  1. Cedarwood, I love your blog. Like you, I have both Breyers and Sleich. I was wondering what barns you use for your Breyers. Thanks!
