Breyer Horse Collecting: Thankful For Breyer Horses

November 19, 2012

This week as Thanksgiving rolls nearer we reflect on things in our lives we are thankful for. Friends and family are often the two things that sit near and dear to our hearts, but what about those amazing horses that bring so much joy to us?

Breyers bring joy to millions all over the world. With their realistic nature and their beautiful artistry, there’s no question why horse lovers all over the world adore Breyers. Breyers allow those who can’t be around real horses for one reason or another share the joy of horses. No other horses allow you to bring the most famous horses that have lived throughout history into your lives. From famous historical horses to the most popular equestrian athlete, Breyer brings these to your very own stable where you can have the barn you’ve always dreamed of!

Breyer horses also involve a wonderful group of people collectively known as Model Horse Collectors. These collectors are often friendly, kind and excited to share information with others. Many people meet some of their very best friends through collecting Breyer horses. Without these horses thousands of connections between people never would have happened. There’s no question as to why we should be thankful for that!

Breyer horse collectors also learn so much from their models. Everything from horse anatomy to the rules of an equestrian sport can be learned through a Breyer horse. Many people have learned horse anatomy from their Breyer models and even more have learned about different breeds, sports and how to care for a horse. A Breyer may be simply be a plastic horse, but the knowledge they hold is immense!

Many artists find their creativity through their Breyer horses. Many famous horse artists started off drawing for photographing their Breyer horses and many other artists are very successful with careers customizing Breyer horses. These creative outlets are special to the artists and their fans and wouldn’t be possible if not for Breyer!

The next time you get a new model from Golden Oak Stables take a minute to think about what Breyer horses have brought into your life. You’ll probably be surprised by how thankful you are for them!

Breyer Horse Collecting: Displaying A Collection

November 15, 2012

Whether you have one Breyer or a thousand, you’re going to need to display them! Then comes the tough question of how to! With a few tips you can find easy and fun ways to display your Breyer horse collection for all to see and for you to enjoy.

Breyer horses are some of the most beautiful horses in the world, so there’s no question that the next time you get a new model from Golden Oak Stables, you’ll want to display it.  The question comes down to, how do you want to show off your horses?

Some collectors find a way to work their horses in with the home decor and have them throughout the house. Tucked into bookshelves and sitting on side tables are easy and fun ways to integrate your collection into your home! Having them throughout your home is a fun way to see your collection all the time and get to live with your collection wherever you go in your house and also add a bit of an equestrian feel to your home decor.

Many other collectors have specific spaces set off for their models. Whether it be a whole room for their models or a few bookshelves in an office, displaying your collection in mass can have a stunning look! When all your models are together it’s not only easy and fun to see what they look like all together but you can also see just how large or small your collection is. It also makes it easy to tell what models you have and which ones you still need.

It’s not uncommon for collectors to not display their entire collections either, so if you have some models that are hidden away or in storage don’t feel bad! Finding a way to show off the models you do have out can make room for more and help you truly enjoy your collection!

However you choose to display your collection remember to keep them out of bright sunlight, away from heat and to dust them every so often to keep your models in tip top shape! Your collection is your own personal way to celebrate your love for the horse, display it with pride!

Breyer Horse Collecting: Celebrating Veterans With Breyer

November 12, 2012

This Veterans day we celebrate and honor those who have given us the sacrifice of giving their lives to the military. Those heroes span every generation and every barrier with one thing in common, they have devoted their lives and in many cases, given us the greatest sacrifice to keep us safe. Alongside those heroes many horses have also served. From cavalry to front lines, horses have long been a part of our military. This year Breyer has celebrated two horses for their lives given to the military.

Sargent Reckless was a small mare with a big amount of courage. Fighting her way through the Korean War  she became a hero to the wounded soldiers she transported and all of the soldiers who received supplies and ammunition from her. Standing only about 14 hands tall she was truly a little mare with a lot of heart. For her time in the military she was honored by the Marines with nine awards including two Purple Hearts. Sargent Reckless spent her retirement at Camp Pendleton in California! With her own Breyer she’s sure to live on through another generation and remind us all of the sacrifice that our military give.

Old Bob was also created by Breyer this year as a portrait of Abraham Lincoln’s prized mount. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War Breyer brings you a stunning portrait of our president’s horse. Old Bob was known as the family horse of the Lincoln family and brought Lincoln to his job as a lawyer before his presidency. Often thought to be his favorite horse, Old Bob was given the honor of following his hearse in his funeral procession.  Breyer’s Old Bob has been created in astonishing detail, even down to the blanket he wore to his funeral.

With Golden Oak Stables you can celebrate history as well as remember our Veterans this Veterans Day with a few historical horses! Bring home a little history today!

Breyer Horse New Releases: Vintage Western Pony

November 1, 2012

Collectors old and new can get excited about a new release for 2013 with a vintage feel! Second in a series, Golden Oak Stables brings you a mold that’s long been a favorite of collectors with a new and striking feel sure to capture the attention of collectors everywhere!

Introduced nearly 60 years ago in 1956, the Western Pony is one of Breyer’s first molds! Very similar to the larger Western Horse, the Western Pony has long been a favorite for collectors. The Western Pony has always come with a molded on bridle, chain reins and a saddle of his own. These details were popular in the 1950’s for both play and display. Collectors still love these charming details that the Western Pony sports. With his vintage feel and long history, the Western Pony became a collectors favorite many years ago but now collectors new and old can add a new one to their collection.

The Vintage Western Pony is the second in a series that aims to make vintage new again! Created in a stunning spotted appaloosa pattern the Vintage Western Pony is sure to draw attention wherever he goes. With a beautiful shaded splatter chestnut coat his color is both interesting and realistic. His blanket appaloosa design gives this little pony the right look and feel for a horse out on the ranch. His saddle and bridle have been painted in shades of brown with golden details that make them shine in the sun. A heavy gloss coating gives him the vintage feel collectors will remember from that time period. Before 1970 most Breyers were coated with a heavy gloss coating, this has become a favorite feature for many collectors. Lastly he comes with a blue ribbon sticker giving him the final vintage detail.

The Vintage Western Pony is a fun way to go back in time with Breyer and bring a wonderful new, but vintage piece into your collection!
