Early models of the Running Mare have only the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp. In 1970 the "U.S.A." stamp was added, and some of these also have the "B" stamp. Beginning in 1983 or 1984 and running through 1993 the mold had a flattened off (right) side eye, with less definition to the corner of the cheekbone as well. In 1994 this flat eye was fixed, although the area around the eye remains flawed. The 1994 eye is larger and sticks out more than pre-1983 models. The Running Mare was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #130.

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.
