I’ve added way too many horses to the herd.

First, Catch Me:

I’ve been waiting for a RR on this mold! He looks like such a great performance horse.

Dominante is next… I’ve also been waiting for a RR on this mold! This color suits him so well. The real horse, Dominante XXIX, is the sire of Gozosa SCS, so of course I had to have him so they could be a family. ❤️ (I’m such a weirdo I know I know I know)

Unfortunately mine came with a pinpoint box rub on his off side arghhhh.

But he’s still really pretty and I love his face and oddly shaped blaze.

Protocol I picked up on the last day of BreyerWest. (thank you Aidan’s Toy Trove!) Many of the other 2019 releases were gone at that point (I figured that would happen…) so I was really happy to be able to snag this set.

I used to own a Strapless years ago. She was the Appaloosa Sport Horse and I picked her up at Equine Affaire in So CA in the early 2000’s. I ended up selling her later and of course, regretted it. Until recently, prices on any run on the Strapless mold have been really high.

Protocol is a benefit model, with a portion of her sales going to Danny and Ron’s Rescue. Since 2005, Danny and Ron have rescued and found homes for more than 11,000 dogs.

She comes with two dogs, which oddly enough, were the two dog molds I was missing from my Breyer dog pack. (on a sidenote, my one-of-every-dog-mold collection is complete WOO!)

This one is really cute:

I’m not sure how I feel about this one:

The Icelandic I also picked up from Aidan’s Toy Trove at BreyerWest, after falling in love with the real Icelandics there. This is one of those molds that I like so much more in person.

And last but not least, here’s a Radar I picked up off of ebay after watching his auction forever. He’s a 2010 BreyerFest store special. In 2009 or 2010 I submitted a request for an updated chestnut on Roy for Breyer’s “Collector’s Choice.” (whatever happened to that?) This guy was definitely a coincidence (he is a portrait model after all) but it was a fun coincidence to see anyway!

It’s been go go go ever since I got back home from Oregon, so I’m sorry if I’m being kind of slow to respond to emails and such. This weekend I had time to get some photo editing done. Here are some photos from the BreyerWest open model horse show!

It had been five-ish years since I last went to a show. Unfortunately nervousness took over, so a lot of the photos I managed to get didn’t turn out because of how badly my hands were shaking. Hi anxiety, so glad you could make it. 🙄
When I did manage to mellow out I was more content to just watch and admire all the beautiful horses that were there. I did get some phone photos, so apologies for the not-so-great quality!

Three of my dozen horses placed, (a 6th, 4th and 2nd) which was better than what I was expecting. The classes were very competitive and at times gigantic (my Alborozo got 6th in a class that had to be split because it was so big) so any placing at all was exciting!

Enough of my rambling, on to the pictures!

All in all this was a really great, well organized and smoothly run show. Special thanks to Erin Corbett, to Kat and Heather at Breyer, to all of the judges and everyone else who volunteered their time and energy to make BreyerWest possible!

I felt super-motivated to start the new year. We’re two weeks in already and everything’s gone quiet on my blog. Ok not really but I always feel that way when I don’t post for a couple of weeks. This happened last year too, what gives?

Even though it’s been kind of quiet I am working on new stuff. Mostly, I’m trying to get ready for Breyerwest because HEYYY six months has magically turned into two-ish! WHAT HAPPENED. This doesn’t really surprise me BUT STILL.

(I blame everything on my job)

I have been participating in a January photo challenge on Facebook/Instagram, which has been fun and given me something to post when there hasn’t been anything else ready to share yet.

Aside from that, I’ve been re-working ribbon rosettes. These were inspired by NAN and Breyerfest:

My desk is a ribbon factory at the moment…

I really want to remake a full set like this, just need to make time!

A secret project got put together…

As well as some other things…

Magical prints… and plaid for the Muggles 😛

I got all giddy over Breyer’s website update the other day:

I will not stop being excited over this #sorrynotsorry

And Leah (who is awesome) of Shoestring Stable surprised me with a NIB Justify, which was super sweet and very generous of her. Thanks again, Leah!

Squee!

Breyerwest really is my main focus right now, (I’m not quite in panic mode but almost) so things will probably continue to be quiet around here. We’ll see!

Is that it? I think that’s it. Back to work.
