Finn the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club Gambler’s Choice Mule
The Breyer Stablemate Club began in 2016. Each year features a Gambler’s Choice Special Run. 4 different colors on the same Stablemate mold are offered once per year, these are referred to as Gambler’s Choice models as the color you receive is random. The Breyer 2016 Stablemate Club featured Diesel, tbe G4 Reiner. Diesel was offered in Glossy Grulla, Glossy Bay Appaloosa, Dun and Wedgewood. At the time, we had 4 separate Stablemate Club Memberships and were thrilled to receive 1 of each color (unlike the Bouncer Christmas Pony, eek!)
The Breyer 2017 Stablemate Club featured Fylkir, the Icelandic Pony. Fylkir was offered in Glossy Silver Black, Bay Splash Pinto, Dunalino and Bay Roan Appaloosa. I had my heart set on the Glossy Silver Black but received a Bay Splash Pinto (trade anyone??)
For 2018, Breyer offered Finn on the mischievous mule mold. Finn is offered in Grey Grulla Pinto, Dun Appaloosa, Glossy Sorrel and a Rainbow Pinto. Finn is the model many were waiting for and at long last, he is now available for Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club Members to purchase. The total cost of Finn shipped to any US address is $25.95. Here is the pricing breakdown:
Cost of model: $15
Credit Applied For Club Deposit: $5
US Shipping: $5.95
I love my Breyer Prism and I’m hoping for the Glossy Rainbow color on Finn as well!
Finn must be paid for by 10/22/18 (for procrastinators like me!)
Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club Members can access Finn’s page directly using this link. Here is what Breyer says about Finn:
Meet Finn! He is offered as a gambler’s choice, as four exciting colorways grace this delightful mule. You will randomly receive one of the following: A shaded grey grulla pinto with a matte finish, a shaded dun appaloosa with matte finish, a shaded chestnut with a high gloss finish, or a shaded rainbow pinto decorator with a high gloss finish. Finn comes in a miniature Traditional-style window box.

Breyer Sapporo – Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club Special Ready To Order
Whip out your wallet Breyer Stablemate Club members, Sapporo is ready to order! He is a new Stablemate mold and is a miniature version of the Brishen mold. The current release on the Brishen mold is the Gypsy Vanner. Just look at how well this fellow translated to miniature!
What’s not to love about Breyer’s Brishen mold? Sure, he might not have the most realistic sculpting but goodness is he ever handsome! I am delighted that Breyer chose to add a Stablemate sized Brishen to the lineup! Speaking of, have you heard about the mini ALBOROZO mid year release? Can you hear me squealing? How about now?? Yes we will have these complete boxes of the Breyer 2018 Stablemates Mystery Unicorn for sale but we don’t yet have the exact price worked out. Helloooo Alborozo! Oh yes he will be mine…
The cost of Sapporo is $15 plus $5.59 for domestic shipping which includes a $5 credit for the Stablemate Club Membership fee. This brings the grand total for Sapporo to $35.59. If you are a current member of the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club you can see Sapporo at this link. Here is what Breyer has to say about Sapporo:
The Third Release in the 2018 Stablemates Club
Sapporo embodies the joyful demeanor of the Gypsy Vanner! His coat is a warm shaded dapple grey that evokes the feeling of cool, snowy mountains. This is only the second time this miniature of Kathleen Moody’s Gypsy Vanner has been released, and it’s exclusively for Stablemates Club members! Sapporo comes in a miniature Traditional-style window box

Breyer Kohana – First 2018 Stablemate Club Horse
Kohana, the first release in the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club was released earlier this month. I just now got around to purchasing my personal (and only) copy. He is the Breyer Stablemate G3 Mustang mold with sculpted on feathers in his mane. He is a beautiful bay roan pinto with yellow and red ribbons.
He comes packaged in a minature Breyer box which I will be sure to take pictures of when he arrives. Kohana’s color was designed by Franceyn Dare. I am a big fan of Franceyn’s work and I own a number of Breyer Custom Horses which were made by her. For fun, here are 2 of my customs by Franceyn:
Kohana’s cost from Breyer is $15 (plus a $5 credit from the membership fee.) Domestic shipping is $5.95 which brings the total cost to $25.95. If you are a Breyer Stablemate Club Member and haven’t ordered your Kohana yet, you have until February 28th. For members, her is the link to Kohana. This is what Breyer has to say about Kohana:
The First Release in the 2018 Stablemates Club
The American Indian name “Kohana” means swift, and this mustang certainly looks like he’s living up to his name! Designed by Franceyn Dare, Kohana has a flashy bay roan pinto coat that’s enhanced by mapped markings. Exclusively designed for 2018 Club members, he also has a new feature never before seen on this mold: beautifully-detailed molded feathers adorning his mane! Kohana comes in a miniature Traditional-style window box.

Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club Open Enrollment
Yup, it’s that time of year again! Time to pay all the new Breyer membership dues! Today is the first day to join the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club! Next year’s models will be packaged in tiny boxes. Hobbyists have been producing tiny boxes like this for years and Breyer has finally decided to follow in their footsteps and offer official Breyer boxes for the Stablemate Club models!
I adore the boxes but I’m a bit nervous about potential box rubs. I very much liked the little satin bags that the past year’s Breyer Stablemate Club models have come packaged in. The bags worked wonderfully for storage and there was no chance of paint rubs caused by the packaging. The first Stablemate Club model of 2018 will be Kohana. He is the G3 Mustang mold which was sculpted by Jane Lunger. He is painted as a flashy bay roan pinto with mapped markings and Indian feathers in his mane. His color was designed by Australian artist Franceyn Dare whom I own several Breyer Customs Stablemates by. To my knowledge, Kohana is the first Breyer model that Franceyn has designed. How exciting!
I am in love with the new Mini Brishen mold. He truly looks to be a miniaturized version of the Traditional Scale Gypsy Vanner which was sculpted by Kathleen Moody.
The cost to join the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club is $30 and must be joined by December 31st, 2017. There will be six Stablemates released with one of them being the Gambler’s Choice Model. The Breyer 2017 Stablemate Club was Fylkir. I received the bay pinto.
The new sculpt for the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club will be an Arabian by Tabitha Pack. The $30 deposit will be applied towards each model which brings the price for each horse to $15 + shipping and handling. You must purchase every model or you will lose your spot in the Stablemate Club.
Here is a picture of all of the Breyer 2017 Stablemate Club horses.
Here is what Breyer has to say about the 2018 Stablemate Club:
Good things come in small packages!
The 2018 Stablemates Collector’s Club begins with Kohana, a stunning bay roan Mustang! Designed by talented Australian customizer Franceyn Dare, Kohana has MAPPED overo pinto markings and Indian feathers in his mane!
The Club will have six releases, one every other month, and will include a Gambler’s Choice (you’ll receive one of four colors, randomly selected), a mini me Gypsy Vanner, and a brand new Arabian sculpture by Tabitha Pack!
In addition to the great models, members will also receive insider information, and the opportunity to enter a raffle for a unique Stablemates collectible!
