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!!! 😀
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!
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 😀
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!
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 horses🙂) 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 Windtalker💙
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!
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 😊😀 It was a great way to end Breyerfest! I’ll post another post about Breyerfest later 🙂
