Stablemates, at 1:32 scale, represent
what was for a long time the smallest scale of Breyer horses--now Breyer's
"Mini Whinnies" have that honor. Introduced in
1975, the same sixteen molds (referred to as G1) were used consistently until 1998-1999, when new molds
sculpted by Kathleen Moody, were added. In 2005-2007 additional molds (G3), sculpted
by Jane Lunger, were added. It's important to note that each of the sixteen
original molds was stamped "1975" or "1976" on the inside of one hind leg.
This is the date the mold was created, not the year the model was released.
As of 2005 Breyer no longer has the rights to make
the G-1 Stablemates, all of which were originally H-R molds sculpted by Maureen
Love. Unless a new agreement is made these molds will not be used again by
Breyer. In 2010 Breyer introduced new molds (G4) as a part of the
Equestrian Games Stablemates set.
