Grazing Mare

(c) Wendy Hick    (c) Wendy Hick

The Grazing Mare was introduced in 1961 with only the round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp. Sometime around 1970 the "U.S.A." stamp was added, and some of the also have the "B" stamp. She was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #141.

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.
