Love of Breyer is Family Tradition for #BeInspiredByBreyer Winner!

5/1/14

Congratulations to S. Brown, of Dewey, AZ, who won the #BeInspiredByBreyer Instagram Contest!

 

Here's what our winner had to say about how she is inspired by Breyer:

2

"A black Stablemate mare and her foal. Those were my first Breyers, given to me, twelve years ago, by my gorgeous, artistic grandma. Six years ago, she passed away, but the passion she gave me has lived on and flourished. I have collected Breyers since those first two and am consistently amazed with their craftsmanship and the joy they can bring me. Not only do they bring back precious memories of my grandmother, but they inspire me to draw, to photograph, to explore the world in a different, visual way. As I have grown, my love for Breyers has grown with me. Through the years I have collected and played, and have always been inspired by these precious model horses. Thank you for my passion, Breyer, thank you for my dreams, my joy, my hope, and for giving me a way to connect with special people over the beauty you provide."

My mom had collected breyer since she was 5 and i think she was born in 1970 or 1971 so i have a lot of vintage models and im a big fan of the vintage models. All of my life i've played with them and have always collected breyer. Congrats to the #beinspiredbybreyer contest winner. :)

I meant to say "ex race-horse" not "ex-horse" LOL. In reference to the 21 year old mare.

Congratulations!! What a great story, I remember the first Paint Mare & Foal I bought about a year and a half ago. The were really pretty and the first time I looked closely at Breyer's. After I got home and searched the internet for others, which in turn opened the door on a new hobby for me. I'm not the typical collector, as I'm a 34 year old male, but I have a huge love horses and everything about them. I have 3 Paint Mares myself, two 12 year olds and a 6 year old. Also a 21 year old Thoroughbred Mare(she was an ex-horse) that clung to me now. All are SPOILED rotten but their worth it. My collection of Breyer's today is 112 and still growing. I love the detail and quality that goes into these models. I find myself attached to several of my Breyer horses. Horses to me are 'mans' true best friend and I couldn't imagine life with out my girls.
