Ruffian was introduced in 1977 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp and some later models have the "B" stamp as well. Ruffian was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #606.

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.
