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!

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.

Out of the Box

I purchased a Justify model on Black Friday, and he’s remained in the box ever since. Part of me wants to keep him in the box forever, but another part wants to take him out.

Keep in box or unbox, that is the question!

This week I couldn’t take it anymore. He is free!

I haven’t seen very many in-hand photos of this model yet, so here we go…

I love his color.

One of the things I love most about Sue Sifton’s sculptures are the faces. The Carrick mold has such a sweet face!

I’m glad I unboxed him… but is it strange that I kind of want a second one to keep in the box? 😄
