Then they offered us Cosette - the Classic Arabian Mare in Chestnut Pinto. Another Hagen-Renaker mold. An apparently open-ended run, too - though limited to two per customer - but still available on the Breyer web site as of my writing this. Well, maybe that one could have been warehoused too, but I was beginning to have my doubts.
Ooh, a new chestnut Carrick! The Zodiac Collection that they hinted at a while back? I’m cool with that. Fan-niversary - is that what they’re calling the next Exclusive Event, or is it just another themed anniversary promotion? Interesting; whatever it is, I hope the Western Horse is involved. The Maureen Love Story…
Whoa, wait a minute. Does that mean what we think it means?
Then we received notice about the offerings for next year’s Vintage Club:
Rats, just when I thought it was safe to start upgrading my Proud Arabians!
While everyone is squealing in delight over the Proud Arabian Mare’s return, the model that made me melt into a puddle was the Quarter Horse Gelding. In Black Splash Spot Leopard Appaloosa, like the Western Prancing Horse? Oh, goodness.
The full lineup, in case you haven't heard:
- Black Splash Spot Leopard Quarter Horse Gelding
- Gloss Red Bay Pinto 4-eyed Misty and Stormy
- Gambler’s Choice Decorator Running Stallions
- Gloss Palomino Pinto Proud Arabian Mare - Yellow Mount pattern
- Bonus Model: Dark Dapple Gray Loose Mane Cleveland Bay, aka "Murphy"
- Gift Stablemate: Gloss Alabaster G3 Rearing Andalusian
So signing up for the Vintage Club this coming year gets you a rare and lovely PAM, and a super-scarce (125 piece) Decorator? Sounds like a pretty good deal to me!
There goes my hard-earned Paypal balance.
