Hello,
around half of March, I've passed the philosophy exam, so I reward myself with new SM:
Best of British set, thanks to it I have G1 SM mold, Pony Gals Hanoverian, another LE for WEG '14 and mini Valegro. He is tiny compared to the other warmbloods. I'm so excited, I will add some unpacked photos later.

Thank you very much, Julie. The British set is definitely tempting, I'm happy I have it. And I'm also happy I've passed the exam ;-)

I'm too busy and lazy to get photos of the unpacked SM, so here are at least my April additions:
My first CM, I bought it on model horse show, it's repainted by the organizator of the show. She is one of the best Czech CM makers. I chose this micro mini cause I love the mold, it has nice head-shape and dynamic pose. I also like palominos. (I know they aren't supposed to have blue eyes, but the girl is famous with the blue-eyed CM and the tiny pupil is adorable):
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And I found one Czech eshop, with Cozmic One on Gilen mold... I was thinking of him about a month..cause "I don't have enough space for big horses" and I'm not a fan of race horses. But it's one of the Breyer's best foals and I want to have my first Traditional horse by Eberl. So I bought him. And he was the last in the eshop, so it was such a luck. He is stunning dark bay (in real like a chocolate, he is a bit purple on my photo) and stands perfectly despite only three tips of his hooves are touching the ground. I really love him.

Hurray, I got new camera, so I finally forced myself to take photos of unpacked SM. I hope I will be able to take qualite photos now Wink
Here we go.

First, my most wanted SM from the haul: "Mini Blueberry" - Valegro. New mold by Jeniffer Scott, there were walkaround by LeeAnn, so let me just share impressions from personal meeting. I really like they released him on new mold, which is detailed and nicely sculpted, but as everything has pros and cons.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I like how his head, neck and hidquarters are sculpted, the movement of piaffe is very well done, also the tail is elegant. They didn't forget to add his belly spot. He is smaller with thiner legs compared to other warmblood SM. But his legs is what I dislike on him. They seem way too small, mostly the hoofs, they just aren't developed. Also the right fore leg (the flexed one) looks short from the left side of view. Here is comparison with my other dressage SM. He is more detailed than the Hanoverian by Jane Lunger, but not as beautiful as Andalusian by Brigitte Eberl:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Second is the Holsteiner mare on Driving mold by Jane Lunger, it's my second LE for WEG 2014.
Big framed mare (actually bigger than Clydesdale) with strong legs. She's a bit schematic, but I really like her colours, the markings on legs are done more properly than on
most of SM. And she has golden undertones, so she is shiny. I called her Radiance. Compared to the first LE black Hanoverian mare.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Last warmblood, pony gals Hanoverian on G2 SM mold by Kathleen Moody. Well, I'm not a fan of Moody's schematic molds, I just bought him because he is Hanoverian and because I haven't grey SM before. This colour fits to the mold in my opinion. Compared with other Hanoverians.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And now, the tempting British set.
First is Suffolk Punch mare on G1 mold by Maureen Love. I'm really happy I have at least one G1 mold. It was sclupted in 1976, so the mold is even older than me! It is of course very schematic, or even plain, but definitely with vintage charm. I called her Apricot, cause she is so rounded and orange Very Happy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Second draught horse is the Clydesdale by Kathleen Moody. Another schematic mold, I like him least from the set. He should be bigger, and his head could be more convex and massive. But this dark bay colour really fits to the mold.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Shetland pony is also made by Kathleen Moody, her style is recognizable, but this little guy trotting with proudly raised head is really cute, especially in this skewbald/bay tobiano colour:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Last, but not least is the Highland pony by Jane Lunger, dapple rose grey variant in set. I really like this mold, she is tiny but still nicely sculpted. I already had a dun one on this mold, but I sold it. Now, I don't understand why. This dapple one is also nice, she looks very gentle, but she has overfilled eyes.

And just two better photos of Coz, one with halter I made for him:

Hi,
June was pretty hectic (because of school) and not very positive, but I successfully finished first year of my studies. So I gave a big reward to myself. Really big, as it's a Foalzilla! And SM painting kit.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

She is my first glossy, and I really love the sculpt by Kity Cantrell. And also first overo in my collection.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
And she is really huge, she can wear halters made for adult traditionals. I will make a walkaround and size comparison of these unique big little girl Wink

Hi,
after I've gone crazy and bought a Foalzilla, I'm back with my favourite scale - Stablemates (and few Mini Whinnies).
Around the half of August, I visited Prague, our capital, where new huge toy store called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] was open. It is REALLY huge, two floors with atractions such as a carousel and a tobogan. I went there cause I've heard they're selling Breyers. They had them, but I was quite dissapointed as they were expensive. They mostly had Classics, and Traditional Best of British series (as it is a British store). I thought they could have Blueberry, he is kinda "best of British" isn't he? I would really like to handpick him. But no Valegro or any other Eberl's mold.
I hope at least for some SM sets with mystery foals, mostly for those with Dungaree or Indigo. Unfortunately they had only some of 2015 singles. So I bought dun Highland pony, which I allready had, and selled (much cheaper than I bought at Hamleys'). But it was a year ago, before I've decided to start a SM collection. At least I could handpick one with nice painting. And I got also two blindbags with Mini Whinnies:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

In the first bag, there was a chestnut blanket Appaloosa on cantering Morgan mare:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I like the mold as well as the colour, though she has some tiny flaws. She will stay OF.

In the other one, there was a palomino QH:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Mold is nice, but his painting is awful, one eye overfilled, the other one is much smaller with a rub, so he will be repainted to a buttermilk buckskin overo.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And now the dun pony:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
She is just gorgeous! Mold is beautiful (but it could be heavier for a Highland pony) and I absolutely love the typical dun colour.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I hope she will be succesful in show ring. Here she is compared to my other Highland pony. I love them both, the grey one looks gentle, but the new one has better eyes and paintjob in general.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And at the end of August, together with Bullyland El Santo, Safari Arabian mare and some CollectAs I got this gentle giants set from MPV:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I purchased it mostly because of Friesian and the drafter in upper line:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I'm happy I finally have the Friesian mold by Jane Lunger. He has the typical long head of Friesians and is sculpted in a characteristic long trot. Thanks to the tail which is touching a ground, he has even two legs in the air. He is the fifth Friesian in my collection, but the first of a heavy type.

Second horse I really love is this sorrel Belgian on a drafter (aka vaulting) mold:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
He has a beautiful massive head, typical for a drafter, with lot of details. On IDYB there is a question mark with Kathleen Moody as a sculptor. If he is really sculpted by Moody, he is her best SM mold I guess.

The only lady in a set: a dark dapple grey Percheron on a Belgian mold:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
At first, I didn't like the painting, but I got used to it very quickly, it reminds me of a marble, and it gives her an old-fashioned look. I allready have a pinto on this mold:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Aren't they divas? But as the pinto one has scratches and broken ear, only the Percheron can be my show-girl in a drafter class.

Last horse is Moody's clydesdale in red roan. I'm not a fan of this mold and colour, the dark bay variant fits to the mold better in my opinion. But they look nice playing together:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And finally, my very first Peter Stone horse, Chip (similar to SM) Jade Morgan from gem stone series:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I like the sculpt, he has really nice head with realistic expression, and thin legs (which could be thicker actually). He was sculpted by Kitty Cantrell, who sculpted most of Stones, and also some Breyers - for example my Foalzilla. As for the colour...well it's interesting in a way, and the idea of gem stones is nice, as these horses are kinda jewels. But I'm not a fan of decorators. I bought him because he was the only one for reasonable price, and he will be repainted to a bay.

Thanks for your attention, I hope you're not exhausted by this long post Very Happy

Oops, I did again...I got another big foal Very Happy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It's no. 1366 Creamsicle, palomino pinto on Clydesdale foal mold by Chris Hess, which was introduced in 1969. So the mold is very old. I always wanted some vintage Breyer mold, and the previous owner sold it for very good price.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It's a cute chubby girl, I like spotted horses and combination with palomino colour makes an unusual horse from her. I will show her as a (North) American Spotted Draft.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Lovely face, and a handmade halter I won on my first Live Show fits her very well (not only the size, but also the colour).

She is in very good condition, without rubs or scratches, but it seems to me her basic white colour is a bit yellowish. Here compared with Foalzilla, whose white is just bright. (just a mobile phone photo and please ignore the dust on the desk Very Happy )
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Together with this traditional foal, I purchased an unpainted SM shetland for my experiments with repainting (SM activity painting kit from summer is still waiting to be painted Very Happy ).

I have feeling that this is not the last big horse in my collection, because Christmas is coming...and a package from MPV as well Very Happy

I find the off-white more natural looking than the bright white.
But that's just my opinion. sunny
It's a lovely foal for sure. She looks very pretty and self-assured.
Very nice halter as well.

I agree, -  the bright white is perfect for the new borne foal , but they never stay so white for very long. Anyone who has had a white horse will know what I talk about   Laughing

Thank you ladies Very Happy
I see what you mean with the unnatural bright white. It's ok on Foalzilla, what is a very young foal, but this older one is better as it is.

Hi,
at the end of November the commissioned repaints of some additions from Agust have arrived.
MW palomino Quarter from blindbag is now the buttermilk buckskin minimal overo paint (based on my reference sketches)

I love his asymetric face from frontal view, and here is my miniherd of Mini Whinnies, OF girls and CM boys. I definitely have to get more of them Wink

The second commissioned repaint was the green Jade Morgan to a stunning bay:

I'm excited how the repaint turned out, cause I love bays and this colour highlights the qualities of a sculpt:

And the precisely painted eyes with an amber reflections are just adorable:

Together with them the artist offered me a repaint of Schleich Percheron mare, beautiful mealy bay, you can see her in my Schleich thread Wink

Me too! I just don't get it scratch but it's definitely awesome that there's someone who can make it and who is sharing her art with other collectors Wink

Hi,
last year was for me, as for a collector, very successful. I got many beautiful additions.
I was planning to add Traditional Valegro, it would be pretty symbolic to get him in the year of his triumph in Rio and in the year of his retirement from competition. But the only official Czech seller of Breyer still does not have 2016 novelties in store (actually, seems to me like they're quiting the importing new horses). So I've changed my mind, and purchased another famous dressage horse by Eberl from MPV - outstanding Totilas, cause he should be retired from Breyer collection since 2017.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm super excited about this amazing and detailed sculpt, the movement looks alive. He is big and quite heavy, but Foalzilla is still little bit higher!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

He is solid black, what could seem plain on less detailed horse, but he doesn't need shading, as he is full of details and areas providing lot of shades and reflections. He looks like monumental bronh statue.

And just few shots of his magnificent head. I especially love it from this side:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

From the other side the eye white is little bit bigger than necessarily:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The details, the wrinkles, the concentrated and slightly sad expression, the wide open nostrils...He will definitely appear in my drawings.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

BUT, after unboxing him, I was studying more infrormations about him. I had known before, that he is KWPN (Royal Dutch Warmblood) by Trakehner stallion Gribaldi, Toto's grandad was famous Trakehner Kostolany. And I had known he was ridden by Edward Gal and later sold to Germany. What I didn't know is that he was trained and succesful thanks (or rather due) to controversal rollkur, known aldo as low, deep and round, or hyperflexion of the neck. It made me quite sad, that by purchasing him I kinda supported this abusing method. Maybe, that's why the model has a sad expression, cause these horses are often mentally broken Embarassed
So I will treat my Toto, who is my first Traditional adult horse. As you can see, I bought this realistic rambo blanket for him, to prevent cold (and mostly dusting Very Happy ). He will also get a handmade halter and riding tack.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And he will also get some friends, cause today I've ordered Fantasia Del C and Gozosa! Traditional Andalusian mare and foal by Eberl from this year Wink

Toto was last model that arrived in 2016, but during Christmas holiday I found an advertisement with this handsome guy, who arrived few days after New Year:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It's Classic, Fun Days limited edition from 2010, oficially called Onyx - his colour reminds the mineral, to support that, he is glossy.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Though I prefer matte finish, cause it's more realistic, there can be some expections. First was Camila, and second is Onyx, his glossy appearance definitely enchanted me.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

He is supposed to be a black going grey, so he has some lighter grey tones here and there (tail, mane, flanks/hips), his face is light with dark marking on forehead. Mine has blurry marking, more like a map.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The mold is "Show Arabian" originally released with mohair mane and tail, later models plastic ones were added. So the mane looks like separate layer of plastic glued to the body, what looks realistic, just a thick mane lying on his neck.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Previous owner took care of him very well, he has no rubs or scratches, he was only a bit dusty (he is a dustcatcher, on that dark gloss surface every single piece of dust is visible.)
His eye-whites are accurate, not oozing out of eyes as on many Breyers, but just delicate crescent, helping to define the eyes in dark face and giving him a curious and vital expression.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I also love his dished face and long elegant neck (in our country, we call this type of neck "swan neck")
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

He is my first Breyer Arabian, I'm not focused much on them, but I definitely love him.

I always had a soft spot for this one Very Happy I hate this mold with mohair but the molded mane/tail looks great!

Definitely! I also dislike the mohair variants, and whole Best In Show collection in general, only the Thorougbred with braided mane and tail looks quite real.

Onyx was modelhorse number 111 in my collection, and yesterday, models number 112 and 113 have arrived! Fantastic Fantasia with adorable foal, who is actually "GozosO" instead of "GozosA", as Breyer haven't resculpted the original male of the mold. I love them, happy to have Eberl's Andalusians.

I will add some unpacked photos later.

Congrats! I'd love to have the foal but not keen on the mare - is she bare plastic or basecoated white?

Thank you!
I'm not really sure wit her white scratch it seems to me a bit different for example from white on Toto's leg markings. Also, on the C brandmarking on her leg is something looking like a rub, and it is more shining. And when I look very close to her, I can see a structure of tiny white points, so it's seems to me like she is sprayed in white. I'm sorry, but I can't tell you for sure, as I don't have any other grey/white Breyer to compare. My other most white one is Creamsicle, but she is yellowish, so she can't help me to identify. (But when I look very close to Creamsicle's white areas, they are smooth, no structure). Is there a key or a trick to identify whether is she painted or bare plastic?

That's okay! It's hard to tell if you're not really familiar with it - if it's basecoated white the model will have a chalky appearance, very stark, bright white. Bare plastic will look like any of the markings on other models, duller, shinier, and will yellow with time - now it's very bright white but I'm sure you've seen on your older models they're not super bright white anymore Wink

I'm stopping by my dealer today so I'll have to check her out in person!
