Hobo of Lazy Heart Ranch is the main character in the book "Mustang:  Wild Spirit of the West" by Marguerite Henry.  This revolutionary book had a great influence on changing the policies of the American Bureau of Land Management toward more humane treatment of Mustangs on the range.  Breyer had Chris Hess sculpt this model in tribute to the book in 1975.  He is one of the earliest Breyer molds that stands on only one foot, aided by a base.  The galloping Mustang wears the Lazy Heart brand on his hip and stands on a base that reads "Hobo of the Lazy Heart (in symbols) Ranch."  Because the weight of the models tended to warp these thin bases over time, resulting in the model toppling over, it's hard to find either model or base in good condition these days. 

This fellow is Near Mint with two tiny rubs inside his right knee, pinpoint rubs on his left barrel and hip, along with eartip and hoof edge rubs.  His biggest issue is actually a factory flaw - He has a smudge of tail paint on his right stifle.  His heart brand is only partially painted black.  Like most of these guys, he leans left, but stands well on his original base, which (unlike many of them) is still perfectly flat.

This model was donated to our charity account for Harvest Hills Animal Shelter, and proceeds from its sale will help the shelter care for dogs and kitties in need.  Thanks for your support!
