How to Start Your Own Collection of Model Horses
Collecting model horses isn't just a hobby...
Collecting model horses isn't just a hobby... it's a passion.
Anybody who collects model horses is a horse lover; Especially if
they're a model horse hobbyist. In this article, I'm going to use
Breyer Horses as an example because they're the most popular model
horses to collect. Even though Breyer horses are expensive, they
will not allow you to go broke if you collect them the right way.
A hobby is something you do in your free time. Whenever you collect
something, most of time, it is considered a hobby.
Starting a hobby is fun, but gradually becomes even more fun when
seeing how far you've come and improved on something you've created.
Find out what Series you want to collect whether it's Traditional
(most popular choice), Classics, Paddock Pals, etc. Some people
choose to just collect the plush, limited editions, or pegasus they
come out with. Personally, I like to collect the Traditional Series
because not only can you customize them to your liking, but there's
a bigger selection.
See Breyer Horse Size Chart.
Make a special place you want to keep your horses whether it's
shelves in your room, a closet full of shelves dedicated to just
Breyer Horses, or a special room for them.
Buy 1 horse a month. Most Traditional-Sized Breyer horses can be
between $25 and $39. 1 horse a month equals to 12 horses a year,
adding to 36 horses in 3 years. If you want to spend more money, you
can buy 2 horses a month, which equals 24 horses a year, adding to
72 horses in 3 years. Family members and friends will most likely
get you one for your birthday, Christmas, or special holidays.
