I heard back from our distributor today. We will be receiving the Breyer 1757 Xavier, the Mystical Unicorn on the Wintersong mold. We should also be receiving a very limited quantity of the 1783 Gold Valegro. As expected, we will not be receiving any of the Breyer 1767 Glorioso on the Kathleen Moody Andalusian mold. We are not taking preorders at this time.

We received the Breyer Mid Year Releases while we were away at BreyerFest. I feel like I am finally recovering from BreyerFest and here come the Breyer Fall 2016 Releases!
1767 Glorioso is on the Andalusian Stallion mold sculpted by Kathleen Moody in grulla. Goodness is he handsome! Glorioso is limited to 2,500 pieces and his expected ship date from Breyer is in September. He will be available exclusively at Brick n Mortar Stores and Breyer has specified that he is not to be sold online. As such, I do not think that we will be able to acquire any Gloriosos. However, I will be looking to add one to my personal collection!
1771 Xavier is on the Wintersong mold and has been modified to a Mystical Unicorn. He is a pearly white color with lavendar shading. His run will be limited but I do not know the exact run size. Xavier will ship from Breyer in October.
I am perhaps the most excited about the 1783 Gold Valegro. The real Valegro won a Gold Medal at the 2012 Olympics and a Gold and Silver Medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. In honor of Valegro’s outstanding achievement, Breyer is making a limited edition gold Valegro. He will be limited to 3,000 pieces worldwide. The Gold Valegro will ship from Breyer in December.
We do have a number of Breyer NIB 1756 Valegros in stock. Valegro is one of the greatest horses in dressage history. His price is postage paid and we will ship Internationally for $15 additional.
At this time, I do not know if we will be receiving either the 1771 Xavier or 1783 Gold Valegro. I have messaged our distributor to see if any of the Fall Releases will be available to us. I do not think that we will be receiving any of the 1767 Glorioso. We are not taking preorders on any of the Fall Releases at this time.

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!
Here is a link to my original Shannondell blog post:

Breyer announced the Fourth Release in the Berries Ponies Series! Her name is Honeysuckle and she is the Icelandic Pony mold that was sculpted by Kathleen Moody. I’m not sure what to call her color but it looks a bit like a roan palomino. Honeysuckle is limited to 350 pieces and is available by lottery to Collector’s Club members. Members may enter the lottery once a day starting today July 7th with the final entry day being July 11’th at 11:59EDT. If your name is chosen, the price is $150 plus shipping and handling. Breyer has this to say about Honeysuckle:
The Fourth Release in the Berries Ponies Series
The fragrant and sweet tasting Honeysuckle was the inspiration for the fourth horse in our Berries Ponies Series. With her soft warm roan coat and swirling mane and tail, Honeysuckle embodies the delicate flowers and berries of her namesake plant. She is sure to be a sweet treat to any collection.
