Hurray for new horses!

I actually bought him on Tuesday, but didn't get around to removing him from the box until last night.  hehehe.  That's very unusual for me, for sure.  Anyway, I bought a new horse on Tuesday.  It's one of the mid-year releases from Breyer and is sort of a portrait horse of a real one.  They've done him before, but as a special run through Toys R Us.  I wasn't collecting at the time and apparently missed out on a lot of neat horses.  But I got the new one and it's on a mold I already collect so now my mini-conga has grown by one.  So, without further ado, here is Snowman...

Snowman is on the Idocus mold.  I still need Idocus.  hahaha.  Oh well.  Anyway, this guy is a lovely flea bitten grey with very nice shading on his muzzle.  I really like him and wish I had a huntseat saddle set because I think he'd make a good mold for that.  So, now I have 4 models on this mold...
Wapiti, Ravel, Buttercream and Snowman.  Yay!  I'm not sure if I'll try to get the others on this mold, we'll have to see.  I imagine I will get more, but we'll see.  I may just decide to get the newer ones as they come out, although there's past ones I wouldn't mind having.

So, three days in a row last week I looked up and saw I'd had a collapse...Thursday...
and Friday:
Saturday I photographed with my cell phone and the photo was bad.  It always involved the same three 2 Roxys and Mistral Hojris.  I could not figure out what was causing them to fall and it was driving me nuts because it never happened in my presence.  Until the 4th day.  The top drawer of my dresser was open and one cat was  lying in it and the other cat was on top of the dresser.  The one on top of the dresser wanted to get on the bed so he jumped over like he usually does and when he did so he bumped the shelf unit, which caused the horses to fall over.  I know that the day before the dresser drawer had been open as well, so I at least know what happened those two days.   So I guess the lesson here is...when you have one cat who likes to jump...don't let the other one lay in what he likes to jump off of.  hahaha.

Thank goodness it's Friday!  My oldest friend (we've known each other since 1978 when we were in 3rd grade) will be in town for an NFL game so we'll hopefully get to spend a couple of hours together.  She's coming with someone else and I've never met the other person before.

My heart goes out to the people in New Jersey and Colorado.  It hasn't even been a year since Hurricane Sandy and they were working to rebuild after the devastation at the Jersey Shore when tragedy strikes again...

I think it ended up being an 8 alarm fire and firefighters from 30 neighboring cities came to help put out the fire.  Apparently it started in a custard shop.  One business that was destroyed has only been re-opened since July.  I feel bad for them.  And then there's the flooding in Colorado.  Many communities have been affected.  I know people in the area, but they're all okay as far as I know.  I can't imagine what they must be going through.  Currently the death toll is at 3...hopefully it won't go up any.  <sigh>

I hope everyone has a good weekend.


  1. Snowman is finally out! Yay! He's the one I want of the new Breyers this year. He looks beautiful. Thanks for sharing your guy.

  2. Yeah. I'm not real sure when he came out. Initially I had been told the end of the week but when I called Monday to give them my new phone number I was told that both Snowman and Trooper were in. I think Snowman is my favorite of the 4 I have on that mold. His flea bites are really nicely done and are pretty realistic as far as painted on spots go.
