Lying Down Foal

(c) Janice Cox    (c) Janice Cox

The Lying Down Foal was introduced in 1969 with only the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp. In the early 1970s the "U.S.A." stamp was added, with some models also having the "B" stamp. In "unicorn" models the horn is separately molded and glued to the model's forehead, while the beard is a part of these models. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #245.

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.
