Alborozo #711108 "Alborozo"



“Alborozo” 2008 Breyerfest Celebration horse, light dapple grey.

Sculpted by Birgitte Eberl. Unknown number produced.

Marked “2008 Breyerfest Celebration Horse” in gold on belly. Breyer/Reeves copyright mark on inside left hind leg.

The mold for this horse was destroyed after the mold run. Per announcement made at the 2008 Test Run Auction, there are a few bodies held back to be turned into one of a kinds, but there will be NO other runs (even small production, volunteer model type runs) produced.

I received this horse free as part of my compensation for volunteering to judge at Breyerfest Live. The 3 day ticket that year was $85.00 and vendors were offering between $50 and $70 credit for these at Breyerfest.

Ephemera: I have box back info card, 3 torn Celebration Horse Pick Up tickets, and the Breyerfest Trading card.

Condition: 3+ No rubs, some seams noted about the head and neck.

  1. We have this model on our website as well; he is very photogenic when the lighting and background are correct. If I am reading the information above correctly, you are also a Model Show Judge? How long have you been judging?
    Talk soon.

  2. I've been an active hobbyist for over 20 years, and a live show judge for the past 15. I have judged at Breyerfest Live several times, and did 2 years at North American Nationals. I also judge often at regional events. The next show I am judging at is Fantastic Plastic Live in Spencer MA in June 2009. I am a past president of the North American Model Horse Shows Association (NAMHSA)

    I have a fairly extensive hobby resume--the purpose behind this blog is simply to catalog the stuff I've acquired in my 30 (!!!EEEEE!!!) years of collecting.
