Breyer Horse Collecting: Learning From Your Collection

March 23, 2015

Collecting Breyer horses is a hobby we all share. Large or small collection, we all share a love for horses and Breyers. Have you ever taken a moment to think about how things have changed since you started collecting? Chances are, every time a new model shows up from Golden Oak Stables, you’re doing a lot more learning about horses and your collection than you think!

With such a diverse collection, collecting every Breyer horse has long been a dream for many collectors and accomplished by very few. With all of this diversity comes another side of collecting, learning about horses you may have never heard of otherwise! Each year Breyer produces dozens of horses, from rare breeds to accomplished equestrian athletes from so many different sports. So, it’s no surprise that often collectors add horses to their collection that they didn’t know much, or anything, about before welcoming the horse into their collection!

Your collection also provides so many other ways to learn about horses. Interacting with other collectors is sure to get you learning things you probably didn’t know, whether it be Breyer history or real horse knowledge. Preparing for live shows can also help you learn about real horses and the models that you are collecting. Many live shows require this type of research prior to showing, so you’re sure to pick up some new information along the way!

The next time you glance at your collection, take a minute to think about how much you have learned since your collection started. What is the most interesting thing that collecting has taught you?

Breyer Horse New Releases: Deer Family

March 12, 2015

Breyer brought back a big surprise for 2015 that have collectors excited to see some of their favorite models back after many years. Golden Oak Stables  has opened its stable doors to a new kind of livestock and wildlife that hasn’t been seen by collectors in years!

Breyer has long been known for it’s model horses, but they also have a long history of making animals and wildlife models that are favorites among collectors and animal lovers alike. Some of the first Breyer models were animals, and date all the way back to the beginning of the company in the early 1950’s. The Boxer, Elephant, and Collie models were all released very early on in Breyer’s history, and since then many more animal models have been produced. Collectors of all kinds have fallen in love with the wildlife and animal models over the years and many collections have at least one animal model in it, if not more!

The Deer Family is a long time favorite for collectors since being released first in 1974. This set of three deer stand calmly and silently, all looking off to the distance. They have been painted in a light tan color with delicate shading throughout. The fawn even has the delicate white dotting of a baby deer coat still on her.

It’s easy to see why they would be collector favorites,  not only are they beautiful, but the deer family makes a great prop for traditional scale setups and dioramas. What trail rider hasn’t come across a deer in the woods?

Do you have any animal models in your collection? If not, the Deer Family is a perfect place to start!

Breyer Horse Collecting: What Does Collecting Mean To You?

March 9, 2015

People have been collecting things for thousands of years and for the last 50, horse lovers have been collecting Breyer horses. Collecting comes in many forms and each collection is different from the next. No two collections will ever be exactly alike and each is as individual as the owner!

Collectors all have different reasons for getting into collecting, but all Breyer collectors share a love of horses. Some find horses beautiful and want to express their love of horses through collecting beautiful horses. Shelves of beautiful horses fill so many collectors with joy beyond belief! Breyer makes it easy for collectors like this with their astonishing number of beautiful horses released each and every year!

Collectors that might find it difficult to spend their time with real horses also find joy in collecting Breyers. With a little imagination collectors can create the stable of their dreams in any, or all of their favorite disciplines. Champion horses can fill the stable aisles and beautiful tack can fill your tack room, making a fantasy come true!

Some collectors love to show their artistic abilities or their love for art through their horses and fill their collections with custom painted artist creations done either by themselves or others. This allows a collector to customize a horse, and their collection, to be exactly what they’d like!

Many more collectors do a combination of these things, or have another reason all together! What does collecting mean to you? What are your favorite parts of collecting Breyer horses? Golden Oak Stables would love to know!
