Breyer Horse New Releases: 2013 Models Are On Their Way!

October 29, 2012

Each year Breyer creates new models that capture the spirit of the horse and the amazing world that they live in! This fall Breyer has released their first group of new horses for 2013 and it’s an exciting group to say the least! From real champions to collectors favorites, this group will have you galloping into Golden Oak Stables for your chance to bring them into your stable.

Breyer has long brought real stars of the equine world to collectors and horse lovers all over the world. From champion eventers to race horses, these horses come to find their way to glory through  becoming the best horses in their sport. This year is no different, Breyer brings both the racing legend Native Dancer and cow horse Topsails Rien Maker to collectors! Both of these horses have made their way into the history books and each are waiting to come home with collectors.

A horse that is no stranger to being in the history books is Sergeant Reckless. This little pony is famous for her work in the Korean war carrying ammunition and wounded solders. She may be small but this little mare was a big part of her division and shows just how close the bond between man and horse is!

Collectors will be overjoyed by the addition of an old favorite into the lineup a Western Pony! One of the very first Breyer models, this mold has long been a favorite of collectors. He’s been painted in a fun and flashy appaloosa pattern that is sure to catch eyes all over!

That’s not all though, there’s also a new classic mold for 2013, a dapple grey Morab Mariah who is the horse of 2013! Collectors will also be excited by a collection of six new stablemates in bright, bold and glittery colors!

Bringing a fun new group of models to collectors, Breyer is already making 2013 a year to remember! The only question is, where to start?

Breyer Horse New Releases: Black Caviar

October 25, 2012

It’s no question that in the past few years, the ladies have been lighting up the thoroughbred racing world! From Zenyatta to Rachel, the fillies and mares are truly making a name for themselves! Now a lovely lady comes all the way from Australia to the world with a Breyer of her own and bringing an unprecedented 22 undefeated races with her!

Black Caviar is a six year old dark bay mare that has taken the racing world by storm! This stunning Australian bred mare was foaled in August of 2006. Unlike the northern hemisphere where all Thoroughbreds are given the birth date of January 1st, in the southern hemisphere they are all given a birth date of August 1st. Having just turned 6, this mare has caused a great stir in her time on earth. Unusually large in her field, this 16.2 hand tall mare has been taking Australia by storm for the past three racing seasons. Black Caviar finished off her third racing season in a big way, at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Stakes where she came across the finish line by a head! It’s not clear if Black Caviar will race for a fourth season, but either way, she’s truly a mare beyond compare!

Breyer has created a portrait model of Black Caviar for racing fans all over the world. Black Caviar pays homage to the mares that have gone before her being created on the Ruffian mold. Shown in her final stretch towards the finish line, Black Caviar shows the determination that a horse needs to have a record like hers! Her deep bay color is striking with light shading throughout. Without any white markings Black Caviar is a big bold mare that is beautiful as she is eye catching!

Bringing the world of horse racing together with a truly amazing champion, Golden Oak Stables is proud to present Black Caviar. There’s truly no horse like her!

Breyer Horse Collecting: Sentimental Horses

October 15, 2012

As collectors every horse in our collection is important in one way or another, or else they wouldn’t be in our collections! Everyone has at least one horse, some have many,  that stands out from the rest for one reason or another. Maybe it’s a favorite real life horse or a gift from a special someone, either way, these sentimental horses have a very important place in our collections!

One of the most exciting parts about collecting is the memories our collections hold. Many  people have strong memories of their first Breyer. These horses often find a special place in our collections forever because of their sentimental memories. The first model in your collection is an irreplaceable model that should be cherished for as long as you hold it dear.

Many customizers and artists find that the first model they ever worked on is an important model to them. These are reminders of the talent we started with and what it can become! Even as artistic ability improves, it’s always important to remember where you started from as inspiration for what you can become!

Breyer makes so many world class equestrian athletes that it’s easy as collectors to bring these famous horses into our lives! With the chance to add these exceptional athletes to our stable also comes the love for the real horse. Your favorite race horse or show jumper might be out of reach but with Breyer you can bring a bit of them into your life.

Gifts are also often models that become sentimental to collectors. These tokens of esteem from friends or family are sometimes the most special horses of all. It’s easy to see why a collector would get sentimental about a gift. There’s no better way to remember the person who gave it to you!

No matter what, we all get sentimental from time to time and our horses become sentimental too! What horses make you sentimental? The next time you get a special horse from Golden Oak Stables there’s no question that you’ll be getting a little sentimental!
