PostSubject: Cyhyraeth's Breyer horses   Sun Aug 21, 2011 9:30 pm

Once I've heard the idea that a true collector may sell a precious specimen from his collection to buy a more precious one. But all my horses (from a rather expensive Peter Stone to a rubber Bullyland figurine) are sth more to me, than just a part of my collection. Each horse in my collection has its name, sometimes it differs from the one given by the artists.
Each horse has its own story of how it appeared in my stables:) (And I will tell you some of those stories.) And I don't think that I can make myself sell any of them to get even a very desirable horse figurine.

Well, this is my Breyer and Peter Stone herd, the traditional size (scale 1:9) part of it:)
Red Rum, the Akhal-Teke mould.(replica of a real living horse) He wasn't supposed to be in my collection. To tell the truth, I didn't mean to get any Breyers at all, when I saw him. But one of the model horse collectors sold him, and I had some spare money. So I thought:"He's a handsome boy. Why not to take him?"
At first I paid no attention to him, he was just standing quietly on his shelf. Several times, when I had some financial problems, I thought about selling him, but every time sth prevented me from doing this. One day I was doing some model horse photos, and I put my blood elf paladin figurine from WoW next to him.. They both seemed to be so bright and looked good together. When I glanced at the pictures, I realized how I'm glad I have him in my collection. And, occasionally at the same day he got a name- Sweet William (my mother named him).

GG Valentine & Heartbreaker, traditional (scale 1:9) (replicas of the real living horses). She was the first mare in my herd. I dreamed of getting some Breyer or Stone mare for my boys-only company, but couldn't find any that would satisfy me completely. And than I saw Valentine. She was so well built, elegant and really life-like, that I couldn't resist.

And the mare separately.

Treasure Hunt 2007 Silver Dun Tobiano Mustang I'm fond of pinto horses, esp the tobiano ones. And I also like mustangs. That that was an ideal horse figurine for my collection. We call him Basilisk.

Cleveland Bay Tregoyd Journeyman
My fiance calls him Hippo because of his size:) - this stallion is one of the biggest Breyer horses ever made (his is higher than an average traditional Breyer).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
And a kind of joke=) I was looking for riders and grooms for my Breyer Traditional horses for years, but failed to find any. Those that I could find were not beautiful enough and looked like glamour barbi girls (which I hate greatly).
But one day I've glanced at Arthas, whose figurine was standing calmly on a shelf, and had an idea. His right arm was supposed to grasp Frostmourne, but I had no sword. So I decided to put sth else in his hand=) The result can be seen on the photos bellow:)
As long as his career as Lich King is over now, he may spend his time on things more useful and less harmful, like training horses on some distant farm, for instance:)
(I know that he should be standing in the middle of the circle, so that the horse has enough place to move around him, but unfortunately I had a lack of place in my room).

Bet Yer Blue Boons. I really like this red roan quarter horse. She's very accurate, detailed and she has an interesting color. I just got in love with her as I saw her performance in 2009 NCHA competitions. When I came to our local Breyer shop I wanted to buy a Rachel Alexandra replica figurine. However, I realized that she's not my cup of tea, as I examined her. And then I saw Bet...

Partly Cloudy Weather Girl 2011 Treasure Hunt, sculptured by Brigitte Eberl (her resin horses are well known among the model horse collectors all over the world).
She's so fabulous that I can't find any words to describe her. You should see her with your own eyes.
But we call her Fylgja (in Old Norse that means "someone that accompanies").
Although there are no pure blood pinto arabians, I decided to take her, not the black or palomino ones. And I'm completely satisfied with my choice:)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kind of bonus:) Fylgja meets the second equine in my fiancé's house -a small pink rubber horse (with shower gel:)
I hope they would make friends:)))

Flim Flam (a replica of a real living horse). I got him several days ago. His mould is old enough and awfully made- there are no muscles, his head is plain and his legs have different thickness. However, there's something very touching in him. Something, that makes me to hold him in my hands for hours.
I think he will be customized in the nearest future to become a gorgeous stallion. He deserves it.

And the last one- and most beloved.
This is a Peter Stone Arabian, Murphy. (Limited run, 30 pieces). He also wasn't supposed to become a part of my collection. At first I wanted to take a Peter Stone chip Arabian Minime Thunder Clap, but failed to get him (ordered to late, when all of them were gone). And my comrade drew my attention to this traditional size Arabian. And so several months later he joined my collection:)
His home name is Al Azif (the arabic word for the night cries of the cicada and other night insects. In the arabic folklore these noises were named 'the demons talk').

WOW!
Wonderful, wonderful horses, and great, great stories cheers

If I should pick a favourite, it would be Basilisk, but they are all SO great.

You have got the most perfect horsemen training them, - nothing will scare them after that affraid lol!

AND that Pater Stone I love you - funny he is called Al kasif.
My saluki ( Arabian gazehound)´s name is Al Aziz Fidda, - sounds almost the same Wink

Stone's name is Al Azif:) Not Kazif Wink

As for the grooms- well, now they have a ghoul, who's helping Arthas, so their company is even funnier than it used to be:)

And your saluki- was it you who named her this way? What does her name mean?

Oh, yes, typing error : Azif !
Fidda´s kennel name is Al Aziz. I got some choises for names when she was a puppy.
Fidda means silver, - and my first dog`s name was Silver, so Fidda was an easy choice Very Happy

I don`t know what Al Aziz means, It is really too bad, I have to check it Wink

ooooooooo! I love them!!!!! Well, except Flim Flam... the Roemer mold is one of my least favorite Breyers ever. It, John Henry, and Rugged Lark were a big part of why I stopped collecting Breyer horses. But at least Flim Flam's color is gorgeous.
Your Red Rum and your Stone are breath taking.

I have to go to bed now ( Sleep ) but i intend to spend a lot more time admiring your herd.

A friend of mine who has a lot of Stones is probably going to be thinning her herd. Her horses are all in excellent condition and she usually sells pretty cheap (she's crazy that way ) so if there are any particular Stones you are looking for, i can find out if she has them.

yes, Weather Girl is beautiful. She seems to be one of the most popular Breyers ever.

Yes, she's really gorgeous. the only thing I dislike about her is her mane/tale. Anyway, they are being customized now, so soon she's gonna to be perfect)

HKHollinstone
Yes) She's also from B.Eberl (the same artist who made the arabian mare, and Bullyland Il Santo).

Mastiffcat
I don't like the original Roemer mould too, but there's something in him.. I don't really know what exactly...
I hope that customizing would help him.

As for Stones- that would be great!
Could you please ask about the following horses:
Minime Thunder Clap (Chip Arabian) / or maybe some other chip Arabian with pinned ears
ISH mould (old version, with a detailed head)
Some traditional size thoroughbred in grey/bay colour
Emory (Palouse mould)
New Year's Resolution (Arabian mould, dapple gray, with pinned ears)
Wish come true (pebble dapple gray arabian)

It would be great if she has at least one of those mentioned for sale.
Thank you in advance sunny

Hope to see Eberl's warmboolds in plastic one day bounce

Well, today I'll share with you some photos of my Breyer Classics, scale 1:12. :)

The first one is Breyer Classic Appendix Quarter Horse. A very nice mare. I came to our local Breyer shop with a strong intension to buy a buckskin morgan mare, but then I saw her.. She got a name Dancer, because her movements are so light that it seems she's dancing.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
She's one of my favourite mares in the whole collection.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Funny thing about her color- in the sunlight it seems she's having freckles;)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Breyer Classic Arabian
To tell the truth I don't really like this arabian mould because it seems to be not that well done as it might have been - it has roughness, the paint covers the body badly, and the mane/tail are very schematic. It's a pitty, because the mould itself is quite good, and the pose is particularly arabic. So I was disappointed when he came. Anyway, I'm not sure I'm able to sell him away or even remake him. And his eyes make some warm feeling grow in me :)
I call him Baltazar.

Breyer Classic Grulla Pinto Mustang Stallion, (Three Piece Family Gift Set), mould discontinued in 1999.
He's come to me at last. I've been looking for him for years (in this particular color), and now my dream came true)))
He's left his native prairies, crossed the Big Water to take his place among the other steeds in my stables) He's a newcomer, so has no name yet. After receiving this guy I feel like collecting all the Classic Breyer Mustangs. Two are already on the way to my stables:)

It's great you like them, really) My collection isn't that big, but I love every horse from it.

MartinH
Thanks)
It's not hard to make good photos of those you love and admire:)

HKHollinstone
Thank you) Below are some more photos;)

So, my other Classics:)
A Thoroughbred stallion, Breyer Customizing Kit.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I'm not sure about his future colour- I suppose it would be sth like liver chestnut or mahogany bay. But I never painted figurines of such scale, so I'm a bit afraid of doing it myself.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
An Arabian stallion, Breyer Customizing Kit. Artist Anna Chernetsova (Russia). His home name is Dervish. This horse came to me unexpectedly. When I saw him for the first time I just couldn't afford to buy him that time. So, he entered some child's collection. Few months later I saw him on sale once more. But- he again passed by, as I had no spare money. I nearly lost hope to get him, when he appeared on sale for the third time. He looked not that great (children, who possessed him, tried to play with him, braided his mane, etc), and was a bit cheaper in price. "That's it!" I thought and bought that horse. His mane needs some repairing, and there are few little scratches on his body- but this all' s nonsense, because now he's mine at last. Anyway, things might have turned much worse to him.

Breyer models are made of hard plastic*, but it's not brittle.** They used to use Tenite plastic, but newer models feel different to me, so i'm sure at some point they've changed what they use.

Breyer started as making plastic parts for machinery, and the story is, in the 1950s they were hired to make a horse to go on a clock, but the client didn't pay for them. When Breyer sold the horses themselves, the response was so good, they moved into making model animals. There's more to the story than that, but i don't know what it is: it seems Hartland was also involved in making the horses.

*When people talk about Breyers, they generally mean the four sizes pictured on this page
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] although as you can see from the index, the company has branched out to include plush, "toy" horses etc. Actually, Breyer didn't branch out; it was acquired by Reeves Int'l a huge toy maker and they stuck the "Breyer" name on stuff most Breyer collectors don't consider to be Breyers.
Breyer used to be run by Peter Stone, who left and created his own company to make the Stone horses. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

**the Stablemates now seem to be made of a different kind of plastic that at least sounds and feels more brittle.

Martin
They are made from polyurethane, I believe. Some are porcelain. And there's a number of Breyer resins as well.

Baltimore zoo
Yes, on average he's rather handsome.
Susanne
What exactly would you like to know?) As I've already said, they are made from polyurethane, resin, and there are porcelain also. There are three main scales - traditional (1:9), classic (1:12) and stablemates (1:32). There are also paddocks (1:24, like Schleich) and Minni Winners (about 1 sm high), but they are less popular. The first line also represent world's famous horses- Ruffian, Seabiscuit, Salinero, etc. They all are highly detailed and well painted. Classics at times are worse detailed, but they have many interesting poses.

HKHollinstone, widukind
Thank you)

Wildheart
I'm glad someone paid attention to my WoW figurines! cheers
Yes, it's a Blood Elf Paladin (DC Unlimited) and the Lich King (Blizzard). I also have a ghoul and waiting for the troll preist's and the undead warlock's arrival:)
I'm a huge WoW fan Embarassed
And what about you?:)

Welcome) Some more photos will appear soon.

Unfortunately, the two previous owners were little girls, about ten-twelve years old. They tried to play with him as with the Barbie horse, so he got some scratches, and his mane came in a mess.
I was lucky enough to get him, as his last owner tried to get rid of him (I suppose she understood that he wasn't for playing, but she had no money to repair him. I'm very glad that she didn't try to restore him herself).
Quote :

I hope his life in my herd would be long and pleasant for him. He's in loving hands now.

Unfortunately the situation with the model horses in our country is rather poor now. There are very view serious collectors, and sometimes (not very often, but there has already been a number of cases) really good customs or interesting LE figurines enter such children's collections. The main problem is the fact they don't know what to do with them. They try to play with them (as they got used to), scratch and break them, then- at times- try to repair them and thus ruin them completely:(

The Appendix mare is well done, yes, maybe because her mould isn't that old. The chestnut Arabian is older, ut, anyway, there's sth in him, I think. Even some old moulds are great (like mustangs).
However, some artists may make wonderful equines even from those old plain figurines)

And the last part of my collection (for now Rolling Eyes )
Breyer Wind Dancers (scale 1:24). as long as I'm fond of different fairy creatures, including the Fairy Folk and Fairy Horses, it was almost impossible not to get a pair of Wind Dances to my collection. Bellow- Sumatra (the pale one) and Kona (the dark one). Their butterfly wings are magnificent!

Peter Stone Pebble Arabian Mare Celeste, LE (special run for an Equine Fair in Columbus). I have no words to describe her- you should have a look with your own eyes.
And those gorgeous dapples!

I love your collection! I see some I have and several others I want (very jealous of your classic Mustang, that mold is very high on my list of grails).
I'm also a fan of the wind dancers series, simply because they're great models - something you don't often find in the pink 'n' sparkly section! Very Happy I'm still hoping for Breyer to put out realistic (as in, wingless and with sculpted m/t) versions of the same sculpts, because they badly need a new midsize line.

As for Mustang- well, he was also in my wish list for ages, and now he's mine at last)) However, I seldom see this mould (but in other colours) on Ebay, in good condition or even NIB, sometimes- with his family. And at times he's not very expensive:)

Yes, they are quite good, though I sometimes feel like taking away their wings and manes/tales, and turn them into normal horses with mohair manes/tales.

Celeste is beautiful! Such a lovely paint job!
This little mare is one of the prettiest molds ever made, i think, whether Breyer, Stone or Hartland. She is the only Stone or Breyer horse i have ever been truly tempted to buy after i stopped collecting horses. At a Stone Horse sponsored event here a couple years ago, they were raffling 3 models, a big Arab, a Chip and this mare in a lovely bay tobiano. i couldn't resist and bought a raffle ticket and won! You know which one i picked! But she was too dangerous for me to keep her - i didn't want to set a precedent! - so i gave her for Christmas to my friend who collects. i visit her every time i go over there.

oh great, now that i've been looking at these, i want to start collecting this mare--- she's so pretty! What a Face

You have a great collection :)

Tregoyd Journeyman and Flim Flam were my first Breyers along with Misty and Stormy. Flim Flam just has this charm about him, I can't explain it but I picked him from all the others.

I like your Boons, I have a custom on that mold and I love it very dearly, especially as it was a gift from a friend.
You also have a model which I would love very much, The Palomino Andalusian ! I conga the G2 Andalusian but still have a few missing.

I don't own any Peter Stone models yet but my first one is on the way to me Very Happy A pinto Thoroughbred called................ Rio ! I've always wanted a Stone model and when I seen him and his name, well I had to buy him ! Plus it's rare to see a Stone model being sold in the UK because they are expensive to ship over here.

Cleveland Bay is one of the most beautiful and gorgeous Breyer moulds, I think.
I understand what you mean, concerning FF. I guess it was the same reason why I got him)

Thank you) In fact, all of those figurines from my collection- from Schleich to Breyer- are more than just figurines to me. Every has its own story, name, and I remember how it entered my collection. So there are lots of stories about them- some funny, some rather sad- that I can tell you:) All that I need- a person who's interested in such stories :)

As for Basilisk- yes, there's something about him. He's one of my favourite traditional horses, and the only one from the Silver mould (except Silver himself) whom I wanted to get very much, for any sum of money.

Well, I think you've found the right persons to talk about your figures, stories, sad and happy moments and how important are every figures for you! :)
It's nice to look at a figure and see much more than a figure! Not only a piece of plastic but a piece of our lifes! sunny

My Breyer classic mustang stallion finally got his lady!
She's a bit too tall for him, but they do look quite good together, I think:)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Her name is Honeymoon, she's shaggy, and a bit thin, I believe. But she's very, very cute. And her building reminds a little the one of the Lokay horse.
So, here she is- Breyer Classic Mesteño's Mother buttermilk dun, Alona and Damita Set . The funny thing is that she has no markings or stamps on her body or legs, like some very old Breyer horses.
And yes, she has primitive markings and the dorsal stripe!:)

She came together with a rearing stallion, who was kind of bodyguard for her during her long way to our part of the world:)
So, welcome him- Breyer Classic Fighting Mesteno blue roan, Azul and Fausto Set
I dreamed of getting this mold (and in this particular color) for ages, no finally he's mine:)
We call him Vipolzen' (in English it's sth like 'Crowler'). He got this strange surname because he looks very much like the 'creeping girls' from the Japanese horror films, who's big fan I am=)
I like this stallion very much, as he seems to be carved from stone. There's sth very ancient about him...

It wasn't me, but, anyway, I'm interested in Breyer Classic Mustangs very much (they are most beloved from all the Breyer horses):) Could you please give me some details on the one you've found?

Roger
Yes, they are! bounce And to tell the truth I like some old molds even more than the new ones- they are full of individuality and charisma. The mustangs in Classic size are my favourite))

Then you'll loooove this photo from Karen Grimm's collection of the original Hagen Renaker Mustangs, which the Breyers are copies of. They are sooooooooooooo beautiful!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The Breyer Mustang stallion is at a store 2 hours away in the Mojave Desert, which has a lot of older Breyers (older as in late 90s, early 2000's). if i remember, he was pinto. I don't recall the price, but it wasn't outrageous. Someone was asking about Breyer dogs on another thread, so if there's interest, i'll figure out how to see what they have. Cece will go by there in January or December so she can check things out then, if not before. (i wouldn't be too worried about it selling before then as this store is literally in the middle of no where. It's very bizarre.)

Got a number of Breyer horses yesterday- two trads (1:9) and several stablemates (1:32).

The first one is Breyer Traditional Prince Jester. He has a very interesting colour- dark liver chestnut. It's particularly common in the Morgan horse, and may be indistinguishable from true black without very careful inspection. Often confusingly called "black chestnuts", they may be identified by small amounts of reddish hair on the lower legs, mane and tail, or by DNA or pedigree testing. What's funny, I thought that he was black, and found out his true color only as I came home and got a few pictures of him:)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He has dapples (not easily recognized, however), and I haven't decide yet, whether I like dapples in dark colours.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The other one is Breyer Traditional Sato, LE 2011. He seems to be very interesting because of it's colour, uncommon for TB horses- he's sabino palomino. What's more, according to the DNA-research, genetically he is dominant white:) Such a strange and rare horse:)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
To tell the truth I'm a bit disappointed. I do not like they way Breyer does pinto colour in the last few years (they live the white parts unpainted). I have a strong feeling that the paint would be scratched away if I the edges it with my nails:(
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I like the way his head is sculptured, but the painting isn't really great- esp the line between the neck and the mane.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
It seems that Sato and Red Rum mold were made by the same artist.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Anyway, there's sth about him. A golden horse:)
