Wow! Your enthusiasm about a Breyer Phantom is fantastic! I'll keep poking around for information, but if any of you have come upon a list of past Benefit horses, please let me know!
Have a great day,

Hi Terri and all!
I was researching Breyer horses and the only Benefit one I found was this pretty Palomino, http://www.e-modelhorses.com/p-14867-breyer-palomino-equestrian-land-conservation-benefit-model.html
I did not see any other benefit horses, or mustand benefit horse. Hope this helps!
P.S. Welcome back, Terri!
They've done three so far according to the Breyer guide...book...thing.:) What imformation do you want on them?
2005-Capella-Abaco Barb-Traditional Foundation Stallion mold in bay pinto
2006-Jingles of Pegasus Theraputic Riding, Inc.-Traditional Black Stallion mold in semigloss chestnut
2007-Nokota-Traditional Nokota Horse mold in black roan (side note: aren't black and blue roan technically the same? haha.)
And then in 2008 (I think it was that year) they did two horses for ELCR (Equine Land Conservation R???), a liver chestnut and a palomino.
And then there was a grey and a dun on the same mold for this year's ELCR benefit horse.
Hope this helps!:)
oooooh! I've ALWAYS wanted them to make a phantom breyer model!!!! that would be soooo coool
Here's one that was close "Capella" http://www.breyerhorses.com/products/product.php?item=1280
This is right on with the Mustang & Benefit Horse. A rather striking model, "Nokota"
The Nokota horse is a rare breed descended from wild horses that roamed the Little Missouri badlands in southwestern North Dakota for more than 100 years. Descended from early ranch and Indian horses, including horses the U.S. Army confiscated from Sitting Bull's people after they surrendered in 1881, the wild horses were accidentally enclosed within the boundaries of Theodore Roosevelt National Park in the late 1940s. When the badlands herds were removed from the park and sold in the 1980s, brothers Frank and Leo Kuntz of Linton, North Dakota, purchased many of them. Together with Castle McLaughlin, a graduate student and park ranger who researched the history of the horses, they developed the Nokota name and breed registry. The Nokota Horse Conservancy was founded in 1999 to preserve and protect this unique and historic mustang strain. Now, you can help this Honorary State Equine of North Dakota. A portion of the proceeds of Breyerâ€™s 2007 Benefit Model will be donated to the Nokota Horse Conservancy for the purchase of land, feed, water and shelter.
Go to BreyerHorses.com and search Mustangs or Nokota :-)
Side Note: Black and Blue Roan are not the same. ;-)
