Saddlebred Weanling

Attached Tail Unattached Tail

The Saddlebred Weanling was introduced in 1973 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." and "U.S.A." mold stamps, with later models possibly having the "B" stamp as well. The tip of the tail was attached to the right buttock of the model until 1985. Models released after that time do not have the tail tip attached. The mold was sculpted by Marvin Morrin and is Breyer mold #62.

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.
