Look-Alikes: G1 Thoroughbred Mare

The G1 Thoroughbred Mare has a nice assortment of look-alikes, though she does have a heavy case of the "browns" as is typical with the G1 molds.

Since we always start with the browns, this time we'll have the grey's first.

Conga! G1 Throughbred Mare

The original ceramic Hagen-Renaker mold, #24 Mini Thoroughbred Mare20, was sculpted by Maureen Love Calvert, and leased from the company by Breyer for production in plastic. The Thoroughbred Mare mold was released in 1976 and was discontinued along with the other Generation One molds at the end of 2005.

I love it when things divide out evenly - Breyer released seven regular runs and seven special runs on this mold, putting her in a tie with Citation for the third least used mold.
