Suckling Foal

The Suckling Foal, also called the Nursing Foal, was introduced in 1973 and is designed to nurse from the Thoroughbred Mare. It has the round "Breyer Molding Co." and the "U.S.A." mold stamps, and some models may also have the "B" stamp. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #3155FO.

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.
