Birthday Breyers, part two

Most of the horses went to American collectors, but I shipped a few overseas. One was an original bay Cigar that went to a young hobbyist in Australia. She wrote me the nicest thank you, in which she told me that my Cigar was the first Breyer she'd ever touched. I thought that was really cool.
I've heard similar stories from international hobbyists during the prize phase of NaMoPaiMo. It always makes me so happy to send Breyers to places where they aren't common, to people who wouldn't be able to get them otherwise.
My second Birthday Breyer giveaway is for hobbyists from far off places, where Breyer horses are hard to find. If that's you and you would like to win Nazruddin or Brass Hat, please send an email to braymere@comcast.net with "International Breyers" in the subject line. You don't have to write a novel, but I'd like to know who you are and where you come from. Tell me how about your hobby history and what kind of models you have in your collection. Most importantly, let me know which of these models you like the most.
Entry deadline is midnight, January 17. I will announce the winners on my birthday, January 18. And again, if the winners are also NaMoPaiMo participants, I'll include a selection of NaMoPaiMo goodies with the prize model.
Good luck, everyone! I can't wait to give these horses away!
