Real Life Breyer Horses: All About Draft Horses

September 8, 2016

The gentle giants of the horse world have always had a way of capturing the hearts of horse lovers. These beasts are far from what their size implies, and vary so much beyond just their size. Beloved by so many, it’s no surprise they are a favorite among Breyer collectors and horse lover alike!

Breyer’s first draft model came to collector’s hands over 50 years ago in the form of the beloved Clydesdale Stallion. This mold showcased the beauty and power of the majestic Clydesdale horse, and made draft fans of Breyer collectors. A Shire would follow after as well as a mare and foal for the Clydesdale Stallion. Collectors have made these favorites and the molds have seen dozens of colors and incarnations over the years, making them collector favorites.

Today there are a myriad of draft breeds have been brought to the Breyer stable. Percherons, Belgians, and Spotted Draft Horses are just the beginning of the wonderful breeds that have been brought to collectors through Breyer. Several more have been brought to Breyerfest as Celebration and Guest horses. Collectors have found them to be just as lovable as their real life counterparts, earning the title of gentle giants once again!
