Guests loved our surprise Silver Charm models at our 25th Birthday Bash in 2014, and still talk about them to this day. In typical BreyerFest fashion, we decided to put a little twist on the theme for our 30th anniversary as well! We could have simply hid 30 pearly models throughout our Special Runs, but we decided to get a bit more creative.
Hidden throughout our Special Run models were slight variations on the originals' colorways with pearly basecoats to tie into our "pearl anniversary." We gave our guests a little treasure hunt to celebrate 30 years of BreyerFest!
Let's start things off with Bucky! He might look a little bit unrealistic with his metallic blue spots, but we have a soft spot for our 30-piece Bucky variation! We still love his traditional spots as well.
Banner made another BreyerFest 2019 appearance in a breathtaking blue/green Glossy Tortuga coloring reminiscent of a special run from our 20th Birthday Bash in 2009 - Gala the Five Gaiter! This 30-piece run was a great accompaniment to the original black and red model.
Instead of Pepper’s sassy Chestnut Sabino coat, you might have received one of the 30 Grey Sabino models instead. The "Salt" to Pepper, if you will!
Rocket was painted as a Light Dapple Buckskin, but 30 lucky shoppers walked away with a slight twist on his original color – a Light Dapple Buckskin Pinto.
And last but not least, Natasha’s Special Run had 30 Flaxen Liver Chestnut Pintos hidden amongst the Bright Bay Pinto models.
This year’s 50/50 matte/glossy split was Quill, with half of the run produced in glossy finish and half of the run produced in matte finish. For our 30th birthday surprise, there were also 30 extra-special Amber Champagne Blanket Appaloosas hidden in his run throughout the weekend.
Diana had a total of three variations! Roxy’s loose and braided manes made an appearance in this run. 50% of the Diana models were produced with hunter braids, and 50% were produced with a flowing mane and tail. We also couldn’t forget our 30 special models for Diana! A few lucky fans walked away with a glossy Bay Splash Pinto models with a loose mane.
