Black Stallion ~ Ofir, Sire of Witez II - SHRINKY
The handsome Ofir was a well-known Arabian stallion born and bred in Poland prior to the Second World War. He is best known today as the sire of Witez II, on whom Chris Hess based the iconic Breyer Proud Arabian Stallion mold. During the war, Ofir was taken by the Russians to their Tersk stud, where he sired one of Russia's most famous Arabian mares, Mammona. (His son, Witez II was brought to America about the same time.)

Breyer's portrait model is on the Black Stallion mold, and was only available at Breyer Tour Stops in 1994. He is a plum bay with four socks, a star and snip. Only 2350 were made.
This fellow is a shrinky, and what a shrinky he is! His eartips only come to halfway up the jaw of a regular sized model. He doesn't present any odor or wet spots (although he may develop them while wrapped here, waiting to be adopted), but he is definitely showing the odd, lumpy appearance of a shrinky. Paint-wise, he's Near Mint with just a couple of tiny rubs on his left foreleg and a black speck on his left front hoof. His color hasn't faded like many shrinkies, except that we see slightly uneven coloring in a couple of places if you look closely. His whites are bright. Whether you adopt him for entertainment or out of pity, he's sure to be a neat conversation piece!
