The Merrylegs mold is based on the pony of the same name in Anna Sewell's Black Beauty novel. The mold has the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp, with later models also having the "B" mold stamp. While made on the Classics scale, this mold has also appeared in Traditional scale sets. Merrylegs was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #3040ML.

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.
