Hi Breyer fans,
I wasn't able to keep my thread updated, but my Breyer herd keeps growing.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
This one has run in in last December.
It is a G1 Stablemates "Seabiscuit" repainted by a Czech hobbyist.
The mold is really vintage, it was introduced in 1976, scuplted by Maureen Love originally for Hagen-Renaker, so it is maybe even older. Because of the age the mold is of course less detailed, but it has very nice dynamics, proportions and expression. Let him show you:

Overall very nice figure, I love the vintage charm, the energy of the sculpt and the paintwork the hobbyist gave him. Recenty I realized it is probably based on the famous Czech racehorse called 'Železník' (meaning something like Ironman, Made of Iron), but I'm calling him Pumpkin Very Happy for two reasons: 1. he is orange 2. few days after getting him there was film on TV about real Seabiscuit who had "stablemate" named Pumpkin.

Here are my two only G1 Stablemates, Apricot and Pumpkin. The chestnut colour somehow pushed to named them after orange fruits. Hope to add more of them soon. But G1s are rare where I live.

See ya later, with my January additions Wink

Congrats on your new additions! They are lovely models. I personally adore the G1 stablemates. And to be honest, I am pretty jealous over your G1 drafter Very Happy

Thank you Andreas [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]!
I agree, that G1 Stablemates are adorable, they have so much vintage charm. I guess the G1 drafter is still available, it is from Best of British pony and draught set, maybe they still have them on MPV.

You are correct, they still have them on MPV, I am slightly tempted to order a set, although I am slightly tempted to order more blind bags stablemates as well, I am obsessed with them....

I'm currently awaiting my second blind bag, I hope for Eberl's Andalusian or Django. I already have the dressage pinto. I wouldn't mind also Rivet and Cantering WB, rest would be sale pieces (and maybe etched before selling).

Hi there, finally managed myself tu update this thread.
In January I held my tradition of getting mare and foal set (by Eberl).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
So these two trotted into my herd.
I remember I always adored them since I discovered Breyer many years ago. So I finally got them.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
They may look basic, common bay warmbloods, but that's maybe the special thing about them - perfect representatives of most common equine type and colour. Plus the touch of Brigitte Eberl makes this duo rather special. (At least for me). I love foals, and even more mare and foal sets. I love the colt trotting by his mother's side:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

They're supposed to be portraits of champion hunter mare called GG Valentine and her 2010 colt Heartbreaker nicknamed "Frisco".
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I really appreciate they don't have eye whites, their eyes have vital expression:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Especially the mare's ones:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The molds are called Giselle and Gilen, I already have one Gilen, so the mare was new for me. And I'm really excited about her.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Her pose is beautiful, nice relaxed trot with decently flowing mane and tale.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I guess there are more of my favourites features about her - my favourite equine gait is trot, my favourite colour is probably bay and I like (brood)mares the most.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I like her rich bay colour and her shading, though she could have more shading/grey tones around her muzzle.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Her head is stunning, isn't it?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Real GG was imported to USA without her parents being known, but one thing is clear - she was marked as a Mecklenburger. So the Breyer GG has its brand-marking: crowned capital M.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm not sure what is the breed of the foal then, as the dam's parents are "mystery". His sire is famous show jumping Belgian WB stallion Oh Star/Olympic Star.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
They're gorgeous anyway, and as I hope you could see later, not my lasts on these molds Wink
Have a nice weekend!

Hi again,
GG and Frisco wasn't my only January additions, I got also two of my favourite scale - Stablemates.
First is my 3rd special edition for WEG 2014 (each limited to 750 pcs):
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Handsome white grey stallion, it is said Selle Français on the box. He is really elegant in this light shade of grey.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I bought him particularly for being SR and particularly for my conga on the G2 warmblood stallion, he is my 5th. (but not the last Wink )
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I really appreciate he is not just bare plastic with some shading. He is basecoated, what is visible mostly on his head, where he has a large marking. (and one tiny next to the nostril, I guess accidental)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


The other one is from blind bag. Breyer released lot of blind bag editions this year, with some treasure hunt rare ponies (or unicorns). I guess it was smart step (for business) and it is really a hunt for collectors, especially when Breyers are not available in your area, so you can't go to a store and touch the bags to get one(s) you want. When you have to depend on online shopping, you could purchase a dozen of these blind bags. But you still may not be able to get what you want the most. I was after grey Andalusian by Eberl the most. I tried just one bag, he wasn't inside...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I didn't mind the horse I get, it is one of my rather favourite molds in striking black and white combo. His paintowork could be better though.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
He is too dark and too shiny.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Even his eyes are not visible at all, he is hard to photograph.
Recently I purchases few of these bags from a store, when they "cheat" a bit and they offer them unpacked. So I could purchase the Andalusian Wink

Thank you for your comments, Andreas and Susanne!
Susanne, the pinto from the blind bag is a regular Stablemate. I'm happy you like my conga, there is one more to update it with. So stay tuned Wink

Good evening, I'm back again with my final January addition. As he stayed in his box for a while, he trotted in the herd in March.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It is Best of British Shire (in Traditional scale), new for 2018. He is a splendid gentle giant!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The mold is Shire gelding sometimes called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], it is quite new - it was introduced in 2016 as a part of Premier Collection and was scupted by Karen Y. Gerhardt. This is first RR on this mold.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The mold itself is available in two versions - loose mane and tail or braided. I'm so happy they chose braided version for this model, it is such typical for British horse shows.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
He is full of details, muscles and wrinkles, but they're quite lost because of very thin paint. If it was thicker it would highlight the qualities of the sculpt. Also he has sculpted horsehoes, but not painted. His subtle dapples are beautiful though.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
He is sturdy, but not very tall, of average Traditional height. I unfortunately have no comparison photo.
I really love him. I focus mostly (almost only) on Eberls in Traditional adults, but he was definitely a must have.

Great new Breyers, particularly the shire. I've seen this one in stores and was quite surprised by how short he was. Nevertheless, he's still a very worthy addition to your collection. The sculpting on him looks amazing!

Thank you, Andreas and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
I agree it is quite a shame he is too short for the breed, he would be truly impressive if he was huge. Anyway I definitely don't regret of getting him, he is stunning and full of details.

Thank you, Anna cheers he is beautiful. I have to say I would prefer dark bay colour, but this colour tourned out really lovely, he was my first dapple grey Breyer. It would be nice to see your Robin in those subtle light tones Wink
