These have been a very long time coming but I finally finished posting all of the BreyerFest 2016 Stablemates to the website. The BreyerFest 2016 Single Day Stablemates were all number 711235. They came packed in colorful Stablemate sized boxes. We have all of the BreyerFest 2016 Stablemates in stock and available for immediate shipment. I do anticipate offering some for sale as a complete set but I haven’t gotten around to making a listing for that yet. Please inquire at email@example.com if you would like to purchase a set. There are links below to the individual horses.
Which Single Day Stablemate is your favorite?
I think the my personal favorites are Amapa and Bahia. But I am a big fan of the Spanish breeds and I am also naturally drawn to Para. Breyer did a great job on their Stablemate selection this year at BreyerFest!
I anticipated having problems acquiring the Breyer Mercado store Special Run 711248 Copacabana. But I think the brutal heat and humidity brought down the number of people willing to wait in line for him and I was able to snag some. It’s a bit hard to tell in the pictures but he is the G3 Mustang mold in a purple decorator with vibrant orange and red flames.

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 job. I put out a single halfhearted ad offering her out on free lease as either a riding horse or as a broodmare. I received one response from what sounds like the perfect lessee who would like to use her as both a riding horse and as a broodmare to breed to a Friesian stud for a Warlander foal. I have already been down to visit the facility where she will be kept and the gal’s personal references gave glowing green reviews. I am pouring over lease contracts now and trying to make sure that they are as airtight as can be. Once the contracts are finalized and the horse insurance is in place, Baya will be headed 90 minutes south to her new temporary home near Eureka, California. This is sort of bittersweet to me but I do feel it is the best option for my mare.
On a model horse related note, we have most of the BreyerFest 2016 Exclusive Special Run Models for sale but I have been slow to list them. We have one of all of the glossy Samba Surprise horses available except for the palomino. We have most of the Mercado Store Specials as well as the Single Day Stablemates. If there is one in particular that you are looking for, please feel free to inquire. The Breyer 2016 Mid Year releases arrived. Sadly, Poltergeist was damaged en route to our distributor and it looks as though we may not be receiving any Halloween horses this year. Bummer!

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.

Breyer posted a sneak peak of the BreyerFest 2016 Auction Lot #26 on the Breyer News Page. He is the newer Carrick mold in a lovely bay pinto with a custom swishy tail! I think this guy is quite dashing!
3 days until BreyerFest!
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.
