Western Horse, Black Pinto w/Reins
Breyer's Western Horse was available in black pinto only from 1954-1973. Being so long retired, finding one in good condition for your collection can be a challenge. He wears rounded white pinto markings in the same pattern that he shares with the chestnut pinto release, four socks, white mane, black tail with a white tip, and airbrushed bald face. They saw some changes during their run, mainly to their saddles, which went from high-rivet snap saddles to low-rivet snap saddles, to slip-on saddles, during their time. When a saddle is present, it can help date the model.
This guy is in Excellent condition with a scratch on his back, ear edge rubs, and a scattering of tiny rubs overall. He shows mild yellowing that you should be able to correct with a week or two of sunbathing (these older guys take longer because they're denser). He is missing about 20% of the gold paint on his breast collar, but his bridle paint is 90% intact. He sports grey inner ears, and has the bump on his back that shows he's an old guy - It was originally put there to help keep the saddle in place.
