Breyer Horse Classics: The Perfect Pony

April 10, 2017

Ponies have a reputation for being full of attitude with cuteness to spare. These perky, but tiny, members of the equine family are beloved by so many and unique as any other type of horse. Golden Oak Stables has a plethora of ponies, and a new sweet one that is irresistibly cute!

The Classic line is the second largest line in the Breyer stable and known for it’s horses that showcase many special breeds and types of horses and ponies. One of the newest sculptures, sculpted by the beloved artist Brigitte Eberl, is new for 2017 in a color that is unique and beautiful all in one.

Bay Pinto Pony may sound a little generic for a name, but she certainly is nothing but. This sweet girl walks calmly with a delicate expression to her that will make any heart flutter. Her long mane and tail are details that help give this marvelous mare a personality unique to only her. Her coat is a deep and delicately shaded bay with bright red highlights that shimmer as she moves. Large white patches, or pinto markings, make her one of a kind, and even more eye catching!

Every stable need a few ponies in it, and Golden Oak Stables has found the perfect one to fill any vacancy that might lay within your stable walls.

For five years now, Breyer has brought us a new classic scale sculpture to serve as horse of the year. These models have become collectible and anticipated by collectors, with much excitement for each every year! 2017 is no exception, and a few and feisty new horse is already galloping into Golden Oak Stables.

The Horse Of The Year Bella is a classic scale model that has been eagerly anticipated all around! Bella has come to us in the form of a beautiful buckskin Appendix Quarter Horse. The Appendix Quarter Horse is a beloved breed, that is a straight cross between a Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse, bringing the best of both breeds together. These horses can still be registered as Quarter Horses and maintain many of the characteristics of both Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds!

Bella has been sculpted in a full gallop, with her head down in strong focus as she heads towards whatever is catching her eye. A wide blaze and pink nose give her face a flashy look and striking contrast to her metallic, deeply shaded, buckskin coat. Gentle shadings fade into dark points on the mane, tail and legs, where on two of her legs, white socks sit!

This feisty little lady is a fun new sculpture that is unlike any before her. Let her gallop on into your stable today!

Breyer Horse Classics: Black Caviar and Her First Foal

November 9, 2015

In America we have racing super stars like American Pharoah and Zenyatta. In Australia, where racing is just as popular and stars of their own have started to take the world stage. One of these race horses is Black Caviar, a mare that has made a name of herself for an amazing record that will surprise and excite any racing fan.

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. Unusually large in her field, this 16.2 hand tall mare has been taking Australia by storm for the past three racing seasons. This dark bay mare finished off her career with a perfect 25 and 0 record, an unbelievable feat to say the least.

She retired in 2013 to begin her career as a broodmare where she has produced two foals, a filly and a colt. Golden Oak Stables brings you a Classic scale portrait of this beautiful mare and one of her foals! Your Classics collection will jump for joy with the addition of this deep bay championship mare and her bay foal. Black Caviar and her Foal are painted to perfection and showcase the beauty of this amazing horse.

There aren’t many mares like Black Caviar and there aren’t many Breyers like her either! Add this special mare and foal to your collection before it’s too late!

Breyer Horses Classics: Dun Quarter Horse

June 18, 2015

One of the most influential and popular breeds in not only America but the world is that of the American Quarter Horse. This uniquely American breed brings versatility and stamina to every ring it enters. At Golden Oak Stables, a little Classics version of this breed is sure to impress!

The American Quarter Horse is known for not only it’s popularity but also it’s versatility under the saddle. This astonishing breed can trace back to the beginnings of our country but was formally founded in the late 1800’s with the first sires including Steel Dust and Shiloh. From there the breed developed into a working cattle breed that helped to found the western states of the United States! Without this breed, our country would be distinctively different to say the least!

Today you can find Quarter Horses all over the world and competing in far more than just cattle work. The American Quarter Horse is known for it’s fast speed, gaining it’s name for running a quarter mile with speeds up to 55 mph! They are also known for their work in English and Western pleasure, show jumping, and as schooling horses!

The Classics Dun Quarter Horse is a lovely light dun incarnation of the popular breed created on the classic Quarter Horse mare. This lovely little lady shows her stuff in a soft loping gait and her calm expression is sure to give her rider confidence. Her light powdery dun coat is eye catching and beautiful and her dark points give her the perfect contrast.

Want to hit the trail? Or maybe just the schooling arena? The American Quarter Horse is the perfect mount!
