Fighting Mesteño

(c) Reeves International, Inc.  (c) Janice Cox

The Fighting Mesteño mold was introduced in 1994 as part of the Messenger Series and has the linear © Breyer Reeves mold stamp. This mold is nearly identical to the Sombra, with (among other things) the Fighting Mesteño having both hind hooves flat on the ground while the Sombra has its near hind hoof cocked. The mold was sculpted by Rowland Cheney and is Breyer mold #4811ME.

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.
