January 29, 2015

Breyer introduced animal models very early on in the 1950’s as companions to their horses. Dogs, cats, cows, even wild animals like bears and deer have been created over the years and have become collectors favorites by so many. Collectors have embraced this subsection of collection with excitement and enthusiasm and after years of asking, Breyer has brought some of the animal molds from retirement and into collectors hands!

The Cow and Calf Gift Set is a set of a two Holstein cows that so many of us will recognize. This familiar dairy cow is so memorable and so easy for us to recognize with it’s patchwork black and white pattern. The cow’s calm expression is sweet and knowing and her calf turns curiously to one side. They have both been painted with delicate grey shadings around the hooves and soft pinking in the ears and nose area that gives their stark black and white coat coloring a beautiful touch.This new and detailed paint job is the most detailed that these calves have seen and that collectors have had a chance to add to their collection.

Open up that paddock and get ready to add a little livestock to your barn, this Cow and Calf is just waiting to graze in your pastures and start, or add to, your Breyer Animal collection!

Breyer Horse Limited Editions: Glitterati

January 15, 2015

Breyer horses have a long history and interesting history that stretches over 65 years with thousands of horses in between. Celebrating the 65th anniversary of Breyer, Golden Oak Stables brings you a model that combines the amazing artistry of Breyer today with the beloved mold that started it all.

In 1950 Breyer Molding Company was based out of Chicago Illinois and was a lot more like any type of manufacturing plant than the company we know it as today. Creating everything from steering wheels to clocks, Breyer produced plastic injection molded pieces and products for companies all over the world. In 1950 they were commissioned to create a western themed clock for the F.W. Woolworth company along with a horse standing beside it, this would end up being the first ever Breyer model. When Breyer saw the popularity of the clock, they decided to produce just the horse due to popular request. This horse was affectionately known as Western Horse, because of his molded Western style tack. The original palomino Western Horse was produced for over 50 years, being eventually retired in 1991.

New for 2015, Breyer has created a twist on the beloved Western Horse that already has collectors excited. Glitterati is a perfect creation showing the intricate detail that Breyer is capable of along with the classic and beloved Western Horse. This old favorite has been painted in a detailed and delicate bay Appaloosa with intricate spotting and beautiful shading. His tack has been hand painted in both gold and black with ever iconic gold chain link reins. He has been finished in a stunning high gloss just like vintage Breyer horses were finished in, giving him the perfect finishing touch!

Ready to add a bit of history to your collection? Glitterati is a perfect way to bring both something old and something new into your collection!

Classic models are the second largest scale of Breyer horses and measure approximately six inches tall.

Now the classics stable is full of lovely horses and new models and molds are always being added!

Liam lives up to his honor as Horse Of The Year with his beautiful appearance and calm demeanor. This stunning strawberry roan Quarter Horse features a delicate paint job that has been executed in the loveliest of ways.

You can see him trail riding or as a favorite lesson horse, or maybe even as a trusted cow horse.

Whatever Liam will be in your stable, Golden Oak Stables has him ready to head out to you! Do you have room in your stable for Liam? If not, it’s time to make some!
