Breyer Premier Club Shannondell
The long awaited Breyer 2016 Premier Club model Shannondell is ready to order! I chose the free flowing mane and tail. I wish I could have chosen both versions! Shannondell is a brand new Shire sculpt by the talented Karen Gerhardt of Westerly Design. Shannondell is priced at $175 plus $17.50 domestic shipping (ouch)! Here is what Breyer has to say about Shannondell:
The Second Release in the 2016 Premier Collection
Your Shannondell model with free flowing mane and tail is in stock and ready to ship!*
The second release in the 2016 Premier Collection is Shannondell, a stunning dappled bay Shire. This impressive English draught breed typically stands over 17 hands tall and weighs over 2,000 pounds and is known for its tremendous strength and good nature. Often black, bay or grey in color, the Shire has plenty of feathering and is a striking sight. Shannondell was both sculpted and decorated by the talented hands of artist Karen Gerhardt. Karen’s mastery of the equine form is evident in the work she creates in both resin and ceramic. Her horses feature kind expressions paired with exquisite finish work and shading. Breyer fans will know her for her beautiful sculpture of the Cleveland Bay. Karen has captured Shannondell in action, moving forward with fluidity and obvious strength.
This Shire gelding is not only impressive in his stature, but in his appearance as well! His golden bay coat is accented by a lovely blaze, high white markings on his legs, and belly spots. His coat features delicate mapping, and his lifelike expression is enhanced by his detailed tri‐eyes. Shannondell is ready to enter the show arena, or to be hitched up to a parade wagon. Each Shannondell in the Breyer Premier collection is a hand‐painted work of art, and no two are exactly alike!

Hi guys. I apologize for the radio silence. The family is finally all back from BreyerFest after what can only be described as a rather grueling BreyerFest and return trip. There has been a lot going on here and not all is model related. I know a lot of you have real horses. I have a wonderful Andalusian mare named Baya. I have not been able to ride with any frequency in years. She is a very sensitive horse and is becomes depressed when she isn’t being lavished with attention. She thrives on human contact and thoroughly loves having a […]

Have you seen Triton, Breyer’s newest Web Exclusive? He is the Classics Shire A mold (opposed to the Shire B with the tucked head.) Triton is a glossy black leopard appaloosa with shading and blue mane and tail ribbons. I do have some Tritons on order and I’m excited to see how he looks in person. I suspect that Breyer’s stock photo isn’t doing Triton and favors. Here is what Breyer has to say about Triton: With his proud pose and loud leopard appaloosa coat, Triton is sure to catch everyone’s eye. He sports blue bows in his mane and […]

Hi guys. Just a quick note to say that I am back from Kentucky! I had a flight cancellation and ended up spending the night in the airport waiting for the next flight out. I arrived home later than anticipated and slept the day away yesterday. Today I’ll be working on listing BreyerFest inventory. I don’t have an exact count as the BreyerFest horses are being driven back by car and won’t be here in California until Saturday. There are several Samba Surprise horses that haven’t even been opened yet. We have Dag Dia and Diablo DC available for $135 plus shipping. We also have the Copacabana, The Girl from Ipanema, Auriverde and all of the single day Stablemates (sets and individuals). We have extras of all of the BreyerFest Tent Special Runs. I know we are very low on Namid and the Zebu so I have not added them back to stock until I have an exact count.
Also the Mid Year releases are all here minus Poltergeist who was damaged when he arrived at my distributor. I’m working on getting the Mid Year Releases listed as well. The eBay store is open for business and I’m working to get all of the relists relisted that expired during BreyerFest. All of the BreyerFest preorders shipped on Monday save 2 and those people have been contacted. If you did not receive a tracking number, please message me and I will look it up. The website requires them to be uploaded manually and it seems I missed uploading a few of them.
I best get to packing and shipping today’s orders out. Thanks everyone!

Breyer posted a sneak peak of the BreyerFest 2016 Auction Lot #27 on the Breyer News Page. The model is Cinza the Saturday Raffle model. He is the Valegro model in a beautiful grulla appaloosa. I really like this horse! Breyer has this to say about him:
2 days until BreyerFest!
BreyerFest is almost here! Next up is Lot #27, a Grullo Semi-Leopard Appaloosa on Mold No. 737.
Breyer also made the very disappointing announcement that The BreyerFest 2016 Celebration Horse Imperador das Aguas JM will not be attending BreyerFest. He is showing signs of laminitis and his owner are trying to keep him as comfortable as possible. They are however sending some other Mangalarga Marchadors in Imperador’s place. Here is a link the the article about Imperador das Aguas JM that Breyer published today.
I do have some Imperador das Aguas JM presales available but I cannot guarantee shipment on July 25th for orders placed now as I brought limited packing supplies with me to Kentucky.

Today we have Lot #26, a walking Thoroughbred Bay Pinto on Mold No. 724.
Love the horse but can’t afford him? I have some 1759 Cortes C for sale with free domestic shipping.

Breyer posted a sneak peak of the BreyerFest 2016 Auction Lot #24 on the Breyer News Page. She is the Blue Grass Bandit mold in a yellow dun pinto. I can’t say I’m crazy about the color but I’m sure someone will love her. She is a popular mold after all!
5 Days Until BreyerFest!
Next up is a Yellow Dun Pinto on Mold No. 585 for Lot # 24.
