Early versions of the Fighting stallion have only the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp. Beginning in 1970 the "U.S.A." stamp was added, and some of these have the "B" stamp as well. Early models have correct stallion genitalia, but by sometime between the early 1970s and 1985 the scrotum becomes a solid bar, rounded only slightly on the right side. This model is almost identical to the Classic scale Rearing Stallion, but at roughly 12" is much taller and has a slightly more tucked head. Until the early 1970s Breyer attached foam-rubber pads (in pale orange or yellow and occasionally green) to the hind legs and tail to prevent scuffing furniture. It was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #31.

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.
