MIB Spooktacular Photo Show


Spanky
Your horse is weird, dude.

The Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show was the impetus I needed to get involved in photo showing again. The last photo show I entered was decades ago! The fun class list and fun prizes were too hard to resist. I only entered the halter division, but I had fun with the themed classes. Here are my best efforts at making creative entries for the various classes.

Breyerfest Sales



I had actually planned to go to Breyerfest in person this year with my daughter for the first time in a long time, but I'm loving the access to all the workshops with virtual Breyerfest, and there certainly hasn't been a shortage of shopping! 

To that end, I've listed lots of medallions and micros for sale on Model Horse Place over Breyerfest weekend. All have special Breyerfest buy-it-now pricing and free USA shipping!

Bert & Ernie - 2020 Customs Contest Theme Entry

Bert and Ernie
2020 Breyerfest Customs Contest Theme Entry by Danielle Feldman


This is my first-ever entry for the Breyerfest Customs Contest.
When I learned that the Theme division this year was "Pairs Well Together" I instantly knew
that I was finally going to customize this pair. I've had the idea kicking around in the back
of my mind for quite some time and even had the Breyer bodies for it. From there, the idea grew to
include this scene. Call me crazy, but I've always wanted to make an in-scale tree!




Original models
Breyer Classic QH Foals

First step was to cut and heat the models into position. 

Next step, dremel down the excess plastic and 
insert a stable rod to replace a hoof.

Sculpting in progress. I used sharpie to mark bony landmarks or areas that 
needed to be dremeled down or filled in. Lots of back and forth.

More sculpting in progress with mane and tail armature added. 


Handmade dandelions using laser sheets by Mary Kinloch.
They are time-consuming, but I am hooked!

My husband's and my initials are carved into the tree. ❤

Every leaf was hand stamped and individually glued. I am exhausted!

Sometimes they squabble just like their Sesame Street namesakes.
