Breyer Juniper is the Third Release in the Berries Ponies Series. He is the popular Flash mold in a blue roan blanket appaloosa. At first glance, I’m not wild about him but he might grow on me. I do like ‘Flashy’ colors <groan>! Juniper is available by lottery to Collector’s Club members who may enter once a day from today, May 10th 2016 to May 15th 2016. What are your thoughts on this fellow? Will you be entering?
Breyer says this about Juniper:
The Third Release in the Berries Ponies Series
With a bright blue roan coat and lacey Appaloosa blanket, Juniper gallops his way in as the Third horse in our Berries Ponies series. Much like the plant itself, Juniper’s lacey Appaloosa markings mimic the sharp yet delicate needles of the Juniper plant while his rich blue roan coat is the perfect match to the wild berry he was inspired from.

It’s hard to believe that the weekend is almost over. To say that the weekend passed in a blur would be an understatement! On Friday, our order or 163 pounds of new Breyer stock arrived 🙂 Unfortunately some of the horses were damaged but we do have plenty of new horses being listed including the highly sought after #9170 Connemara Pony from the Best of British series with the loose mane variation. Boy is he handsome!
The only other new Breyer that I had time to list was Valegro sculpted by Brigitte Eberl. Sadly, a number of our Valegros were damaged in shipping and we have a very limited number of them to sell.
We still have a number of new Breyers to list. Some of them include: 1753 Vanilla Banks, 1752 Rhapsody in Black, 1757 American Pharoah, 9180 American Pharoah Resin, 1761 Hickory Hill, 1760 Babylflo and 1720 OT Sara Moniet.
The sculptor of the new Premier Club Shannondell, Karen Gerhardt, posted some beautiful pictures of the original sculptures to her Facebook. Be sure to check them out! Shannondell Sculpture Gallery
It appears that a chestnut Idocus will be made as a 2016 Mid Year Release. 500 of them will be released with blankets. His name is Brunello and he is designed after the real horse.
If you haven’t heard, we are looking to purchase BreyerFest Tent Special Run tickets and the Celebration Horse Redemption Tickets. We are paying $35 for Tent Special Run tickets (any time slot) and $20 for the Imperador das Aguas tickets. We can pay securely with Paypal.
Have a great end to the weekend everyone!

Collector’s Club members, have you seen the lottery notice for the Breyer Rodney?! He is the Bighorn Ram mold in a cute spotted brown and white. I think this is the first time the mold has been offered in a spotted color 🙂 He is an exclusive Micro Run of 40 available by lottery to Collector’s Club 2016 members. Be sure to get your daily entry in if Rodney is a must have for your collection. I think that he is super neat and I will be entering for him. Perhaps we can start a daily reminder post so noone forgets to enter. I wasn’t drawn for Dugan but I did manage to hunt him down on the secondary market. Breyer has this to say about Rodney:
An Exclusive Collector Club Micro Run!

Breyer just announced an exciting new horse, the Breyer Premier Club Shannondell! He is a brand new dappled bay Shire sculpted by Karen Gerhardt. Premier Club members have the choice of a plaited mane and tail or a free flowing mane and tail. Decisions decisions… Which will you choose?
Breyer says this about the Breyer Premier Club Shannondell:
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 finishwork 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![envira-gallery id=”2577″]

Breyer, it’s what’s for dinner! Or should that be dessert? These are the horses that got unpacked and cleaned today. They will be next up on the sales block. I hope we don’t need the oven any time soon. Or the counter, or the sink, or the kitchen table… If it is a flat open space, it’s fair game for model horses. Thank you hubby for unpacking and washing these horses. There was an impressive amount of packing tape and bubblewrap and quite an array of creative words involved :p
