BreyerFest 2012 - Mariah's Boon

 

Is anyone else planning on attending BreyerFest in June 2012? Have you all seen the Celebration Horse for this year? Since the theme of this year's BreyerFest is British invasion, they picked the breed best known for carrying the Queen's drums. It's one of my favorite breeds – the Drum Horse. Specifically, it's modeled after Mariah's Boon, an American Drum Horse from Moonlit Acre in Florida.

 

The Drum Horse is actually a mix between three breeds: Clydesdale, Shire and Gypsy. They're beautiful examples of a work horse with grace and beauty. If you look at the pictures of Mariah's Boon, you'll see the qualities of the ideal Drum Horse, with lots of feathering, bright eyes and good bone structure. He was the perfect inspiration for this year's BreyerFest Celebration Horse, at least in my opinion.

Breyer Clydesdale Stallion...Look What You Started

"Every trip to the hobby shop, I would stand and drool over the Mare (#83) and her foal (#84.)"

Way back in the 1970s, there was this little model horse. He was a beautiful Clydesdale - my very first Breyer horse, ever. For those of you interested, he was the Clydesdale Stallion #80, all dressed out in red and white bobs. I got him for Christmas, after drooling over my sister's Breyer collection and complaining to my parents that I didn't have any.

I treasured Clyde, but he wasn't enough. For months I saved up my allowance to add some stable mates for him. Every trip to the hobby shop, I would stand and drool over the Mare (#83) and her foal (#84.) I just needed a few more weeks of my whopping $.50 a week allowance to get the foal and then, his mama. After all, back then the smaller horses were much closer to a grade schooler's meager budget. In the meantime, I would clutch my little Clyde, feeling the curves of his flanks, as I daydreamed of one day having a real horse.

Flash forward a few years. Now I own a farm big enough for more than a few dozen real-life Clydes. Unfortunately, I'm not much bigger than my 1970s self, so riding a huge draft horse would be a comical sight. However, I do have my sights on a gorgeous pair of Halflinger draft ponies. Oh, and this beautiful registered Paint. And then there's that Tennessee Walker and buggy I've always dreamed of since my long-gone bell bottom days.
