When I was 10 years old, I remember going to a horse show and picking up a miniature Breyer catalogue from one of the sponsor booths. I was fascinated by all the detailed models of different breeds and various famous horses and carried that booklet around with me for months. I never actually owned any of those models though, and I eventually forgot about them until I started reading reviews of them over on Traci's A Wild Review Appears blog.
So when some discounted figures popped up on Zulily a few months ago, I decided to order a couple of them and see what they were like.

|Set #2, containing the second book in the series.|
|The back of the box.|
|The inner packaging.|
|Horse #1: front view.|
|Horse #1: side view|
|Horse #2, who has the less dynamic pose of the two|
|Horse #2: reverse side view.|
I don't know that I'll be adding more of them to my collection, since now my curiosity has been sated, but I'm not sorry that I picked these up - and I'm sure my 10-year-old self would have been absolutely thrilled with them.
