Early this year Breyer approached me about creating the prototype for their 2020 Holiday Horse costume. I’ve always loved the fancy costumes on the holiday horses, so I was very excited to work on this project.

I do want to stress that the design and theme of the costume was put together by the creative team at Breyer, not me! My task was to create a 3D version of their design. I was granted some artistic freedom, but I tried to keep it as close to their design and instruction as I could.

Thank you Breyer for letting me play a part in this. ❤️ I am so excited to see the horse and costume together, and am thrilled at the positive response he’s been getting from collectors!

Georg

Georg, the 3rd release in the 2019 Premier Club, arrived early this week.

He is a Rhenish German Coldblood stallion sculpted by Brigitte Eberl.

I’m really, really happy with the color of mine. Usually the Premier models have flashier, more complicated coat patterns, so it’s refreshing to see a solid color instead.

He’s a little derpy looking from the front…

But he has a very sweet face and a gentle expression. ❤

His dapples are nice too. I’m not sure if Breyer’s using a new technique or not, but the dappling seems to be consistently nice throughout the run. (at least from what I’ve seen, anyway!)

It’s not without some imperfections though… mine has a squiggly “S” shaped dapple on his show side. I actually busted up laughing when I noticed it. It inspired an S name anyway… Samwise, from Lord of the Rings. 😄

I’m really pleased with him though, and am happy to see another draft sculpture in Breyer’s lineup. He’s going to look so good in different colors!

All 2019 horses together:

Lucien

Lucien, Breyer’s fall 2019 Collector Club horse, arrived this week.

I’ve been keeping an eye out for this one ever since he was revealed at BreyerFest this year. I’m also glad he’s available to all CC members instead of a limited SR you’d have to be drawn for.

Another pinto? Yes please, I’m totally ok with that. 😍

As far as I know, he is still available on Breyer’s website, but who knows for how long. You do have to be a member of the Collector Club to purchase him though.
