Breyer Animal Creations has chosen Suzy Stafford's National Championship and Hall of Fame partner PVF Peace Of Mind (Statesmans Signature x JPR Have Mercy) to be a part of Breyer's mid-year 2017 release of new model horses, and also has been invited to perform for thousands of fans as a featured participant in the upcoming Breyerfest celebration in Lexington, Kentucky.
Breyer Animal Creations began as the Breyer Molding Company, a Chicago-based plastics manufacturing company which released its first model horse in 1950. Over the last 67 years, Breyer's iconic handcrafted and hand-painted creations have been renowned for the realism, authenticity and detailed accuracy of its models, and inspired a worldwide hobby of collecting model horses by children and adults of all ages.
"When I first heard the news, I couldn't help it - I went right into giddy schoolgirl status, jumping up and down with excitement about my new 'toy!'" Stafford exclaimed. "I will never forget the impact that Breyer models had on me growing up, and it's such an honor to have 'Hunny' join the Breyer roster as such a beautiful model to represent the Morgan breed and Driving Sport for everyone to enjoy."
Coinciding with Breyer's announcement is the news that Stafford and Hunny will join an all-star lineup at this year's Breyerfest celebration, being held July 14-16 at the Kentucky Horse Park. Now in its 28th year and host to more than 10,000 guests annually, Breyerfest is the world's largest festival for model horse collectors and everything equine, and is THE place to have fun with horses and model horses. With a multitude of activities for fans who converge upon Lexington from around the world, BreyerFest provides a great way for horse lovers to learn more about them from experts in both the "real" horse world and the model horse world, for an experience attendees will never forget.
