The sun was setting and it was just the perfect time for natural lense flares. So we put our breyer horses in a bag on our backs (carefully wrapped in towels of course) and went on a photo shoot on Kennesaw Mountain... while my little brother drove his R.C car.... We got tons of photos, so expect more on Model Horse Monday. :oD
This set was found at HobbyTown .U.S.A. I love the way that the tack is so easy to put on and the reins can pop on and off. However, I thought the figure was difficult to get on and I wasn't able to get the reins in her hands. I like these figurines for their realistic features and I love their scale... Not too big, not too small.... but..... I wish the people were posable.... and came in different skin tones ... Still, I am not sure which model horse scale I will build my barn in... Traditional Breyers or Schleich... Choices...
This photo was taken in my backyard. My mom, my brother and I painted these horses at BreyerFest 2014 in the arts and crafts booth. I love this photo because I can say " I painted those horses in that photo!" The horses names are... Black Hole - my brother painted and named that one.... Breezy - the dapple gray painted by my mom... Hay Face - the bay stallion painted by me ( funny story behind that name... that is what we call my little bother whenever he touches hay , his eyes get all watery... OK, well maybe that is not so funny ): ... and Captain Janeway the black one the front, also painted by me but named by my mom ... she kind of likes Star Trek XD
I found these great deals at Tuesday Mornings... only the best place to find Breyers at almost half off! XD Stablemates Mystery Foal Surprise, Lights & Siren Animal Rescue Set, and the New Arrival Set ...AWESOME !!!
In the Mystery Foal Set we got a palomino mare and a Bukskin stallion with a light palomino mystery foal. Yay! I like the mystery sets because it's so much fun to wonder what your gonna get! Almost like having a real foal :oD
The Lights and Siren Animal Rescue Set has a truck and a three horse trailer. There is a ramp that you can pull out so your horses can walk in and out the trailer. It also comes with a tack area, a light that really works, and a siren that makes an alarm sound. I love this set! I love the way the lights and siren make playtime so realistic ... Sometimes my brother "aciddently" scares me with it... Little brothers ;o)
The New Arrival set comes with... a sack of hay, a water bucket ( which is a little big for the scale when compared to the 1:32 scale people... just saying), a trough of hay, a tack box, and a fence. I think this set was great! The fence folds out in a square and your foal can play around til his/hers heart's content :oD This set has a black mare and a black foal... just happens to be the same mold as the foal we got in the Mystery Foal Set...but it is still awesome :)
These pieces are great and are a wonderful gift or toy for any girl or boy :)
so it is official... we are getting our first horse :oD
...but which horse should we get?
take a look at our horse shopping journey :oD
buying a horse is a lot of work! You have to drive all over the place to meet and test out horses... talk about a learning experience! Plus, we learned that it is a good idea to get a vet to check out the horse "before" you buy it :o/ which can cost from $200 to $500!!!! WHAT!!! I think I am going to be a horse vet when I grow up!
I was having breakfast at Cracker Barrel with my family .... Awesome Sunday afternoon :D and on my way out... I found these beautiful horse photos for only $24.99 and $19.99. I had to have them for my room so I asked my mom and she said yes!! ... YAY!!!
I Love these Fabsome new horse photos! They are prints on canvas stretched over a wooden frame. Both photos feature a close-up of a horse's face with his/her mane blowing in the wind.
If you have a horse themed room, want a horse themed room, or would just love to look at a pretty horse...then these would be a great addition to your room... And we hope to find more in the future :D....
P.S. Horse Photographer, if you are reading this .... then horse hooves galloping on a dusty road would be awesome... Just a suggestion :D
