I had forgotten about the free/bonus Stablemate in the Premier Club until I saw others appear on Instagram. Mine arrived earlier this week, so here are a few photos of him.

Charleston is a brand new mold sculpted by Laura Skillern Sailer.

He is such a cute horse!

Like previous PC stablemates, he is a mini-me of one of the releases. He shares the same pattern as Hamilton:

I’m not really a Stablemate collector, but I’ll enjoy this guy for a while longer. ❤️

2019 in Review

I hope you all had a good Christmas. ❤️ I gave myself permission to not worry about any holiday related model horse stuff, and I’m so glad I did. This month has been weird and stressful. I’m happy the holidays are (mostly) over.

Sooo with a new year fast approaching, it’s time for another rambly year-end post!

2019 was a pretty good hobby year. I got to go to BreyerWest in Oregon…

Splurged on so many Breyers…

Fell in love with micro minis…

Made some tack…

Improved my blankets…

Had some fun photos published in JAH…

And worked on a cool project for Breyer.

I’m so grateful for every opportunity I’ve had this year. ❤️

As for 2020…

I’ll be going to BreyerWest in Colorado this February. I’ve been focused on working on pieces I’ll have available for sale there, which I’ve been randomly posting on social media.

I’ve started downsizing my collection, so I’m hoping to continue that. Space has become an issue that I can no longer ignore!

And lastly, I want to create more for myself, whether that’s tack, props or miniatures. (or maaaybe try painting all the nekkid micros I accumulated this year?!)

I hope you all have a very happy new year, and I’ll see you in 2020!

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:
