State of the Carpet Herd 2021

Awareness of the outside world. BreyerFest Artisan’s Gallery 2020. Sales pages, but it doesn’t cost anything to look.

Classics, i.e. what you think of when you think of a Breyer model. Only one (two) new, La Molina & Masella. Silver filigree mare with blue filigree foal.

Freedom, i.e. the middle size that seems neither fish nor fowl to me. One that I won in a raffle and am hoping to rehome. Two model lines is enough for me to keep track of.

Stablemates, i.e. the little dudes. At first, I was only tracking the big horses. Therefore my Stablemates records are spotty. Valiantly resisting the urge to get lost in a data update. These are the ones I know are new within the year.

Tempus Continues To Fugit
Real-life intrudes on the model horse world.

Breyer is saddened to hear of the passing of Janice Cox, a longtime model horse hobbyist best known for being the creator and webmaster of the reference site Identify Your Breyer.

Breyer – My Collector Story: Janice Cox

Spoke with her once by email. After citing IYB extensively for the 2020 post, I asked if she had a donation button. She said no. Quotes and credit were fine. [Carpet Herd 2020]

Stay safe. Stay sane.
