This blog springs forth from the age-old model horse hobby pastime of noting "Breyer Sightings"; instances where Breyer model horses (and other beasties) are used as props or set decoration in films, television shows, and even print ads. It's harmless fun, and intriguing as to the many places these treasured collectibles find themselves! Enjoy!
Been watching every episode of "The Office" (USA version) on Netflix, and for 69 episodes I've been checking out the backgrounds just in case (you never know!). I about jumped out of my chair when this respectable Breyer collection appeared in Episode 9 of Season 5, "Frame Toby"!
This is supposedly the character Jim's parents' house...so it's my assumption his mom is the Breyer collector! Kinda neat that she seems to like draft horses. But then, they are in Scranton, Pennsylvania... maybe some Amish heritage!
This may be the Greyingham Lucky Lad?
And the sabino Clydesdale Mare
In later scenes the house was cleaned out, so I only imagine the mom carefully moved her collection to their new home. How many husbands would tolerate Breyers on the end tables! What a great couple they must be!
Okay, this is about the LAST movie on Earth I'd think would have a Breyer Sighting, but sure enough! About 45 minutes in, the dying mother's hospital room has been decorated by her Alzheimer's patient mother (what a happy film!!!), and what did she put on the window sill but the Breyer Classic "Black Stallion" in Palomino!!
By the way, this was a very good film. Made "Schindler's List" look like a happy musical. Watch it, but with plenty of Kleenex!
