Lily would like to share some photos of her Breyer horse collection with you. To learn the names of her favorite horses you can visit her new blog littlemisssunshinecrafts.blogspot.com
A family of Appaloosas. Daddy isn't in the picture shown. Look how protective Momma horse looks.
A beautiful jumper
Socializing by the barn.
I love the accurate horsey expressions.
The telltale Breyer stamp.
All of these horses were purchased over the last few years at various flea markets and yard sales. Usually I take Lily to the flea market with me and give her about twenty dollars to spend there. Getting up early with her and going to the Flea Market together is one of my favorite things to do. She sometimes brings her own money to add to the pot. Her favorite TV shows are American Pickers, Pawn Stars and Project Runway. Oh and American Idol too when that's on. She is a girl after my own heart.
As you can see she has amassed quit a collection. We bought her first one when she was about four. We have never bought a new one as they are about forty dollars and we have made a point never to pay more than fifteen dollars for one. I've never found a Breyer horse at a thrift shop. The circle stamp you see above usually means the horse is from the 60's or earlier. The shiny finish on a horse means it's from the fifties to early sixties. The matte finish on the other horses dates them to the late 60's to the present.
