Hello all! I could not resist Jen Buxton's Winter Photo Challenge, though I fear my time challenged universe may leave this as a late entry. Anyway, enjoy it--I wish I had more time to retake some of these, but the vet gods weren't taking my hobby time into consideration this week.
These are my very first Breyer models. I got them for my birthday when I was 5...so they are 40 years old! Their names are Blacky and McTrot, and you can see they are well loved.
Everyone thinks of unpainted resin. Few consider them pole dancing.
Me too, drafty mare, me too....
I See Spots
I am consider blowing this up as a print for my living room
Model horses, wacky performance set ups, veterinary medicine...yep, all passions.
The rarest of them all. International multimedia superstar Beowulf, the most famous horseless head in the land.
I don't have a photo of the real Harpo, but he was a charming and patient Belgian/thoroughbred cross owned by the DC of my pony club. Harpo was not much of a looker, but he was kind and gentle, and I always admired him. My Harpo exudes the gentleness of the real one. Of all my models, I would choose Harpo to ride.
THE GREAT CIRCLE OF ALBOROZO. No, I do not own all of these, they were a conglomeration among my Breyerfest roomies
The Great Outdoors
Snowy Silver Winter Wonderland
Best in Show
This one was my hardest pick. It is my favorite horse, Polka Parr T with just some of his awards in his 15 year show career. No, I will never retire him.
This was super fun, and I hope that someone offers more of these to do!!!
