Pacer

    (c) Reeves International, Inc.

The Pacer mold was introduced in 1967 and has the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp, with some also have the "B" stamp. Many models have a small nub of plastic on the near fore hoof in order to stabilize this notoriously "tippy" model. Other models have this front nub sanded off and off hind hoof flattened for apparently the same purpose. Its halter is a part of the mold. The Pacer was sculpted by Chris Hess, and is Breyer mold #46.

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.
