Running Foal

(c) Janice Cox (c) Janice Cox

The Running Foal was introduced in about 1961 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp only. In about 1973 the "U.S.A." stamp was added with some also having the "B" stamp. Some older models have the off side hind hoof pared flat, presumably to help with stabilization. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #130.

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.
