The Shetland Pony has a round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp on its' belly, and some early models have a "CHess" inside the right thigh, as well. Some time between 1970 and 1972 the "U.S.A." stamp was added, and some models have the "B" stamp as well. The "B" stamp was removed in about 1983.The Shetland Pony was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #23.

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.
