you can blame my grandma for introducing me to Breyers. I got my first one when I was 5 years old and my mom didn't want me to get it because the box says ages 8+. But my grandma told me to put it in the cart and I got it. His name is Hershey (because he's black like a hershey bar)
After that I got Chocolate Chip.. a rearing stallion. Then I got a small rearing pinto.. it was Chocolate Chip's son. After that I lost track.
My christmas and birthday lists used to be ALL breyers, until I got older and wanted different things.
Last year Tom got me Impress Me Shanon (Vega's daddy). My collect has come to a halt, only because I don't have any room to put them all.
I think I have well over 100 breyers, most of them are in their orginal boxes.
And I still have Hershey...He did chip an ear and broke one of his legs, but my daddy fixed his leg. :)
I also collected grand champions but nothing could compare to my breyers.
Sorry for the story... just thought i'd share.
