Scratching Foal


The Scratching Foal was introduced in 1970 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp. In 1970 or 1971 the "U.S.A." stamp was added, and some of these may have the "B" stamp as well. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #168.

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.
