Breyer Horse Contest Time! Halloween Photo Contest!

August 30, 2010

As fall rolls in Breyer has rolled out a stunning Test Model that will be awarded to the top prize!

The adorable Halloween Pony Gift Set is the perfect addition to just about any collection, this adorable blue roan pony is the absolute pinnacle of sweetness. Dressed in a ghost costume she is frighteningly ready for a barn costume contest, or better yet, a Breyer contest. With her faithful witch companion dressed to the nines in orange, green and black she is ready to lead her pony right into the winner’s circle.

Breyer has comprised a great contest that puts this set in center stage! Breyer is asking you to create a Halloween scene using the Halloween Pony Gift Set and your own imagination to come up with a photograph that will scare the horseshoes off of anyone! Bats, pumpkins, spooky trees, nothing is off limits when it comes to your creativity!

The prize is an amazing Legionaro mold done in a test run color similar to a previous Halloween Horse “Merry Widow”. This one of a kind model will be given away to the winner and two runners up will win this year’s Dealer Special Run “Bats in the Belfry”!

From Breyer:

Win a Test Model in our Spooktacular Scene Contest

We have a frighteningly fabulous test model of the 2003 Halloween Horse, Merry Widow, to give away to one lucky winner! Done in sparkly metallic black paint on Legionario (mold #68), “Merry Widower” features a spooky spider and spider web pattern, perfect for Halloween! Entering is fun and easy! Just purchase the Halloween Pony Gift Set (#1427), create a spooky Halloween scene and send us a picture of your creation. With our rider doll masquerading as a witch and her playful blue roan pony posing as a ghost, a spooky scene should be a piece of cake…or at least pumpkin pie!

Restrictions, terms and conditions apply. Click here for complete details.

So spook on over to Golden Oak Stables to pick up your Halloween Pony Set and then dust off your camera and get started! Time’s ticking away!
