Black Beauty

Lately I’ve been on this weird Breyer-Buying kick, which is both fun (because new ponies!!) and bad, because space. Last year one of my resolutions was to limit the amount of horses that come in. Now I’m just laughing at myself.
Maybe this coming January I’ll make a resolution to BUY ALL THE PONEHS instead.

One newbie that I am really excited about is Black Beauty on the Silver mold.

Black Beauty was one of my favorite horse stories when I was younger. I had a simplified illustrated edition that came with a gold horse necklace. I have kept both of them over the years.

I wore the necklace ALL the time. The horse charm got so worn down that it broke and disappeared while on a family trip. Luckily I found it lying in a parking lot, after I figured that it was gone forever. I later fixed the charm’s loop, but I haven’t worn it since because I don’t want to lose it again. 😛

Over the years Breyer has produced several Black Beauty models. (here’s a nice overview of many of them) This particular one was a QVC special run, and included a copy of the movie on VHS.

After all these years I’ve yet to see the movie, but I want to even though it will probably make me cry.

This was one of those horses I figured I would never own, so I’m really happy to have him join the herd.

  1. The Black Beauty movie that came out in the 90s is by far my favorite rendition of the story. I owned it on VHS, and I had to buy it on DVD, as well. And yep, I cry every time I watch it. I also somewhat recently bought the book, as that was one horse book I never owned, I just checked it out from the library ALL THE TIME. Congrats on your new addition! I don’t own any Black Beauty models, but I think I might need to try to find this one… 🙂
