Thumbs up The Model Horse Thread

Hey all you betta loving/Model horse loving peeps! I decided to make this thread because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Models and am *trying* to make a Model horse series. (Conquering Tide by CinnamonMewMew from YouTube inspried me, go check it out it's A-W-E-S-O-M-E) Anywayssss...
I made this thread so you could all show off all your pretty ponies and trade and such. I really can't make ANYTHING but crazy stories and plots that usually involve my girl with the loose arm getting her arm thrown off in crazy ways... (LOL sorry) I have had Breyers since I was young and most of mine are kinda beat up so I have never shown, and don't plan on it, but perhaps we could make an online model show in the future? Maybe?? Wadda you think???!

So basially use this thread for:
-Chatting about Model Horses
-Selling, searching, or trading tack, horses, accessories, paint jobs, books, ect. (I am NOT NOT NOT responsible in any way, shape, or form for these transactions, use your common sense and stay smart!)
-Sharing Photos
-Sharing stories or videos
-and anything else you can think of! :)

RULES:

-No cussing
-Please don't tell anyone their tack/horses/photo/story/movie/anything else is awful/bad/stupid/dumb/ugly. BE NICE
-Use common sense and don't come crying to me if you get ripped off. It's not my fault. Bummer. :/
-Only post appropriate things. If you would not want a 5 year old to see it, don't post it!!! We will report you to a mod!


Sorry for all the rules and general grouchy-ness, I just don't want this forum to becomce a 'he said, she said' kinda thing!

So... ENJOY!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D

PS - If anyone sells cheap tack and halters, please PM me or post here! I may also be in the market for someone to custom paint 1-2 of my models.


Thanks!!!

Rock on and Peace out!!!

Ohhh this sounds intersting ;) Ive had Breyers for years now, and I've always wanted to make my own ! I think out of my collection I have Arab mare and foal, Phar Lap, a Grullo and some others I can't remeber without going through my cupboard! BTW, a great Breyer parody on YouTube Is by Twisted Stables! It's super funny. I just can't remember it's name....

I used to be heavy into models about 40 years ago, the hobby sure has evolved since the internet. I hope you kids post some photos of your horses!

Back in the day we used to have to take pictures of the horses and send them in to shows and there was just one newsletter that I knew of. I was stuck with a cheap instamatic camera so I hardly ever won anything but it sure was fun for a horse crazy kid like I was.

I even remember boiling my Breyers in order to soften the limbs to change their postions Oh! and I used to add real manes and tails

good times, good times......

I sold them all at a yard sale, along with my ceramic doggie collection, when I was in my 30's, I wish I had kept a few but I moved so often after that, I had to scale down.

I have a few Breyer horses but I am more of a My Little Pony collector. I have close to 1,000 of them from around the world. Sometimes I customize them too but I haven't made one in over a year

I have been hauling BOXES of ponies around the country for the past 10 years. Its a bit...annoying

Has anyone ever gone to breyerfest?
