2015’s Spring Brick and Mortar Breyer Model Horse, Argyle, (SOLD OUT) is a dappled rose grey with three white socks and a grey mane and tail with white tips.
The back of the box reads:
Shires are among the largest of the draft breeds and are renowned for their size, strength and wonderful temperament. This beautiful Shire, sculpted by Breyer master sculptor Kathleen Moody, is a collector favorite! Argyle is a dappled rose grey with three white socks and a grey mane and tail with white tips. His sweet face has kind eyes, a white snip and a ‘kissy’ spot on his pink muzzle. His feathered hooves are shod with painted silver shoes. Shires were bred in England as working horses and were imported to the U.S. in the mid-1800s. Today, their numbers have dwindled since the rise of the industrial age and increased mechanization. The Shire is considered “at risk” by three conservation societies due to low population counts and they are primarily for farming and forestry, as well as recreational and promotional pursuits. Still, these giant horses continue to gain admiring fans thanks to their tractable nature and awe-inspiring size!
Argyle is available now on our website. Quantities are limited. We will not be able to order more once Argyle is gone.
