Weekend Assignment :)
I'm going to be at a writers' conference all weekend, so I won't be writing to you, but I have a huge
favor to ask! One of my readers, BRILLIANT Elizabeth, had an outstanding idea. She suggested that we contact Breyer about making a model of the Phantom and having him be the BENEFIT HORSE OF THE YEAR --- to spotlight the M U S T A N G
If any of you have time to do research on this, please share with me!
Most importantly, I know Breyer has done mustang models, but have they ever done a mustang Benefit Horse of the Year? If not, it's soooooooo time.
This is a way we can all help the horses!
Talk to you on Monday,

I've always wanted Breyer to create a Phantom model and I agree with Elizabeth that they should!! I would buy it right away if they did! I think it's a great idea to have him as the benefit horse of the year too! What a great idea!! I'm not too sure how to go about contacting them directly about it (being a USA company) but the main website is www.breyerhorses.com ... there's bound to be something on there?
All the best
I came across this in the frequently asked questions on the Breyer site:
Q21: I have a great idea for a new model and/or accessories. Can I submit my idea(s) to Breyer so that you can create it?

They have done mustangs, but never a benefit Mustangs. I highly suggest it!!!
I believe they have had a mustang HOY. Though I still like the idea of a Phantom breyer. A friend of mine told me she'd suggested the idea once :-)
That would be cool if there was a Phantom Stallion model! And oh, what about one of Hoku from Wild Horse Island???
Wow! Hoku would make a wonderful Breyer horse, wouldn't she? With that star on her chest, she'd be unique, too!
YES! THAT'S AN AMAZING IDEA!!!! I've always wanted a Breyer to make a Phantom model. That would be amazing! Especially if it would benefit the wild horses! and Hoku would be cool too!
