Hamilton arrived this week!

Hamilton, an American Saddlebred stallion, is the second release in the Premier club this year. He was sculpted and designed by Jennifer Scott of Aspen Leaf Studios.

I was so excited when this guy was fully revealed! Jennifer’s sculptures are beautiful and this guy didn’t disappoint. He is gorgeous.

Hey Breyer, can we have more horses by Jennifer, please? ❤ We have been so SPOILED with all of these new sculptures in their line and I love it.

My favorite thing about him is his tail. I’ve read that it was designed as a counterbalance, and this is true. He’s not tippy at all, and stands very sturdy. He even stands on my CARPET, and I have thick carpet that very few of my horses will stand on.

Here he is compared to Breyer’s American Saddlebred Stallion:

They’re very close in size:

And here’s a shot with my dorito horse Five Gaiter:

I can’t wait to see him in more colors!

Rhian and Cadell made it to Montana this week!

These two are the first of the 2019 Premier Club horses, and were sculpted by Josine Vingerling.

They are adorable. I love their soft color and detailed eyes. The mare has very subtle dappling, and both have a white basecoat to give them a more chalky appearance.

I can’t get over how cute the foal is.

They are both pretty small. Here’s the mare with Bouncer, who is similar in size:

And with Copperfox’s Welsh Cob:

I’m so glad I decided to join the club this year and I can’t wait to see what’s next!!

Even though I really am out of room, another new pony made it’s way into the herd. (and Breyer keeps tempting me with new releases too… I mean have you all seen the Breyerfest horses revealed so far???)

Anyway, this is the Connemara from the “Best of British” series, with the loose mane/tail variation.

Most of the loose mane versions I’ve seen haven’t had any dapples, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover mine did. In person they’re a lot more subtle than my photos show.

I ended up ordering a replacement stand for him by Towns End Art, as his “wave,” while good for display, would get in the way for photos.

It was kind of amusing to see him on it for the first time. I’m so used to the Newsworthy mold on the wave that he looked like he was flying! (I think his name will be Peter Pan because of that, haha) But at the right angle the acrylic practically disappears, and since it’s small editing it out of photos will be easy.

I also got one for my jumping horse – he can fly too! XD

Today I set up my indoor arena to get some photos. I wasn’t positive on where to place him with the jump, so forgive me if I’m way off! I tried to get an idea of it by watching slow-motion videos of jumping horses, and that seemed to help some.

Like I thought, editing out the stand was fairly easy, and much, much easier than trying to get rid of the wave!

Here’s a quick shot with a Jr. Rider I have in progress:

Now he needs a saddle and pad and bridle and… >_<
