We say it every year and it’s never any less true – BreyerFest would simply not be possible without the tireless efforts of our amazing volunteers.
For this year’s virtual celebration of Horse of a Different Color, volunteers created Seminar videos, Workshop videos, hosted live Workshops on Zoom, spent hours judging nearly half a dozen model horse photo shows, chatted with fans during our live Meet & Greet sessions, provided Hobby demo videos, assisted as BreyerFest Ambassadors on social media, and judged our costume and diorama contests. None of these is a small job and for that, on behalf of everyone at Breyer – THANK YOU!!
As a part of our thanks, in addition to receiving a super cool Breyer Ambassador t-shirt, this year’s volunteers also received a special model made just for them. Meet Thornycroft!
Thomas Thornycroft was a 19th century English sculptor and engineer that lived and worked in London and contributed many iconic works to that city’s landscape. But the one we were most inspired by was the colossal representation of Bouddicea and Her Daughters on Westminster Bridge, which features semi-rearing horses not unlike this handsome guy.
Our Thornycroft has been done as a stunning liver chestnut rabicano with four white socks on the Desatado mold, #721, sculpted by Kristina Lucas Francis. We are so excited to have this guy find his way to the homes of our amazing volunteers. The total number of models created will be released later this year in Just About Horses, but just seven of these fabulous models were glossed as a special thanks to our Volunteer Managers!
