Home Display of My Collection

My name is Jolie Davis and I have been collecting Breyer Model Horses for about 25 years.  Luckily my husband Paul has shared my passion and created this web site and also built shelves in our bedroom to display them.  Click here for my entire collection on display on our shelves  Display of Collection

I admit that the sentimental value of my collection far outweighs any monetary value, which of course makes it priceless to me.

On this page I would like to share with you some of my favorite and special models, along with explanations of why they are so dear to me.

907 Family Stallion Woodgrain.  Made between 1963 and 1967.  This Breyer is special to me because I always wanted a woodgrain Breyer and Paul found him for me on Ebay and gave it to me as a birthday present in 2007.
1279 Nokota Horse.  This Breyer was bought for me by my husband as an early birthday present at the 2007 Minnesota Horse Expo.  We were there with my Mother in Law, Berit and had a great time.  We were able to see these horses at the parade of breeds show.
This Breyer is special to me because it was given to me as a going away present from our foreign exchange student, Thomas.

These two are special to me because I got them from my good friend Michele and the Appoloosa Mare & Foal are my only Stablemates.

14 Proud Arabian Mare
When my grandma and grandpa passed away all of us grandchildren were asked what we wanted.  I of course had always been fond of the two Breyer horses my mom had given grandma.  I loved them and played with them constantly while visiting.  It was the only thing I asked for, and did so purely out of sentimental value.  The Arabian mare's two front legs were missing and had been for years.  I had her and her foal with my collection, she was propped up with cardboard.  It was much to my surprise when my dad came home and told me he had found one of her legs in my grandparents garage.  I was so happy, perhaps she would finally stand.  Dad continued to maintain my grandparents house prior to the sale, and I was in total shock the day he came home with the second leg.  After months of mowing, he had found it out in the yard, sun bleached and all.  My entire family was stunned and she has stood proudly with my collection ever since.  I consider her my special gift from grandpa, and proof of a small but very heartfelt miracle.

If you look close at the mare's larger photo when you click the small image, you can easily see where she was glued back together. You can even see her right "glued piece" is whiter from being bleached in the sun for years.

I had planned on buying Raven but when the clinic where I work was being sold I decided not to (I am a Certified Veterinary Technician).  Kim, the groomer where I work, insisted I buy it or she would.  Everything worked out with the sale and I've been glad to have him as part of my collection.

895 Bright Socks
Bright Socks was displayed at my cards and gifts table at my wedding.  My mom decorated the entire hall herself and "Socks" still bears the ribbons she tied around him in teal to match my wedding colors.  He is a constant reminder of that day and was a welcome sight at my wedding.
