Rugged Lark

(c) Elizabeth Emswiler   (c) Lisa Tilton

Rugged Lark was introduced in 1989 with no mold marks and is a portrait model of two time Superhorse Quarter Horse Stallion Rugged Lark. In 1989 or 1990 the " Breyer Reeves" linear mold stamp was added, and in 1997 a "'97" mold mark was added. Rugged Lark was sculpted by Pam Talley Stoneburner and is Breyer mold #450.

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.
