The smallest scale in Breyer’s stable is also one of the most exciting! Standing at just about an inch tall (1/64th scale) , Mini Whinnies are a fun line of model horses from Breyer that are not only adorable but also just as realistic as their large counterparts! 2012 brings three new sets of Mini Whinnies to Golden Oak Stables in fun colors that will add excitement to anyone’s collection!
Socks ‘n Snips is a group of five Mini Whinnies that show off with their high white sock and their lovely blazes. A chestnut Thoroughbred stands tall and regally with his high flashy white markings. Next is a buttermilk buckskin Spanish horse that looks lovely with her high action. A rearing bay Arabian shines with his deep red bay coat and catches all the attention. Two foals finish out this set, a playful chestnut filly and a bay roan Draft horse!
Ready for a little flashy fun? Spots n’ Patches is a group of Pintos that are bright and flashy as can be! A black and white American Saddlebred starts the set and is parked out in perfect Saddlebred style! Western lovers will go crazy for a fun and flashy red roan cutting horse that is right in the middle of the action. A bright palomino sport horse shows just how versatile pintos can be as he lands from a jump. Last but not least two little pinto foals finish this set, a red bay scampering foal and a bay grazing foal!
Finally, Happy Appy’s is a set of Appaloosas that will have lovers of spots going crazy! A bay blanket Appaloosa is first up and is calm and temperate as all good Appaloosas are! A roan blanket Appaloosa comes next and calmly walks as she heads on her way. Not to be forgotten is a high action leopard Appaloosa that is sure to catch attention as he spins like the best reining horses out there. Two foals also finish out this collection, a high action prancing and a playful seated foal both shine in bay blanket Appaloosa patterns.
Mini Whinnies are a fun and easy to collect part of the Breyer stable that will have you filling up those tiny stalls quick! Affordable as they are fun, there’s no question as to why you shouldn’t bring a few home!

The smallest Breyers aren’t Stablemates as you might think, there is an even smaller scale that has just as many possibilities as their larger scale counterparts! Fun to collect and easy to acquire, Mini Whinnies are a blast to collect!
Standing at just around an inch tall, Mini Whinnies are small as can be and beautiful as can be. The Breyer Mini Whinnies line was sculpted by the talented Candace Liddy who is a well known Model Horse sculptor that has been a favorite for many resin artists for many years. Her Mini Whinnies are just as realistic as her larger pieces and just like any horse in Breyer’s lineup, Mini Whinnies are perfect little horses!
Since their inception, Breyer has created a ton of fun accessories and playsets for their Mini Whinnies line that are great for a fun time! With barns, fencing, riders and more all in one little playset, Mini Whinnies are fun as can be! Breyer also has sets of Mini Whinnies in various breeds to fill your stables out quickly! Another fun thing about Mini Whinnies is that you can find them in other Breyer sets too taking the place of a scale Breyer model for the Breyer Traditional and Classics lines!
Mini Whinnies have a ton of possibilities too! Breyer has created a Mini Whinnie Painting Kit to give you a leg up on customizing with paints and unpainted Mini Whinnies all packaged together. Mini Whinnies can be quite competitive in the show ring as well! Custom Mini Whinnies can often be seen at shows and while painting one could be a little more difficult because of the size, but can be big winners if painted with the same care as a larger scale model.
Another fun thing that can be done with Mini Whinnies and a lot of patience is Mini Whinnies performance! Creating tack that is correct and in such a small scale is quite difficult so if you do it well the rewards can be large!
Take a moment to visit Golden Oak Stables and get to know the Mini Whinnies line! They are a blast to collect and easy to acquire! Don’t bypass this wonderful scale, they can be a lot of fun for anyone in a myriad of ways!
