Horsen' Around The World Comes to Triple Mountain!

In case you missed it, there's a Breyer Proud Arabian Mare, nicknamed Pammy, who's traveling all over the place, gathering stories, and decorations, along the way.  This fun project was begun by Julia in Massachusetts, USA, in August of 2015.  Folks signed up to take part at that time, and stop by stop, Pammy has moved around, suddenly appearing on collectors' doorsteps... even once being handed off at BreyerFest!  At each stop, the collector takes her on a little tour of their area, posts pictures of her visiting, and then gives her a little decoration (some call them tatoos) to...

This past Sunday, June and I (June is my good friend who helps out at Triple Mountain, for those who haven't met her yet) took a field trip to Skyline Farm Museum in Yarmouth, Maine.  Skyline Farm is a non-profit organization working to maintain and display their 150+ piece antique carriage and sleigh collection, as well as preserve the open fields around the museum for equestrian and agricultural events. Last Sunday was their fall pumpkin celebration, and despite the cloudy sky, lots of people came to see the giant pumpkin catapult run by Andy Cole and his assistant, who are...

Doing Good:  Model Horses Helping Texas

We believe that every business has a responsibility to the people, animals, and environment.  As part of our Doing Good pledge, from now through September 30th, 2017, we will donate 10% of the sales of all current regular-run models to the Red Cross for helping the folks in Texas, many of whom lost everything and will need a lot of help to survive and recover following Hurricane Harvey. We have friends and customers in the affected area and our thoughts and hearts go out to them.  We have heard from some of them, and hope the rest are okay. Please...

It's a New British Invasion!

Seventy-three years and two months (almost to the day) after the Beatles appeared in the US on the Ed Sullivan Show, we have a new British Invasion!  This one goes by the name of Copperfoxmania, and since it centers around horses, we're loving every minute of it! We're amazed how many people "camped out" to order their models at midnight, and now we're busy packing as many as we can to ship out today.  Here are some pictures of them set up at our store:   Order yours now right on our Copperfox page here or choose Copperfox from our...
