Luke Barron, Littleton, Colorado
The world of Breyer Horses has evolved since Barron started collecting the model horses as a young rider. But the magical times they provided his childhood remain fond memories.
“As a child I was blessed/cursed with an active imagination,” Barron shares. “Breyer Horses inspired countless stories and imaginary adventures. My favorite was a Clydesdale (center-front) with red and white ribbons in his mane, all done up to be pulling a wagon. I’d seen the Clydesdale teams at the National Western Stock Show in Denver and on the beer commercials, and that Breyer Clydesdale looked just like the real thing—it was the coolest.”
Barron now shares his Breyer collection with is young son, Calvin, also a budding horse lover.
