Black Stallion

(c) Hilary Hurley

The Black Stallion was introduced in 1981 and represents the equine star of The Black Stallion novel by Walter Farley and its subsequent movies. The mold has a round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp, and early models have the "B" stamp as well. The Black Stallion was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #401.

A symbol means that I don't yet have a picture of that model. If you can help, please see the Help Wanted section. Clicking on any photo below will open a larger version of that picture.
