#1843 - Theo - Ardennes
Regular price $46.00
A powerful draft horse native to France, the Ardennes is one of the oldest draft horse breeds. Originating in the Ardennes region of France and Belgium, these horses had to be hardy to work the rough terrain which was laden with forests and hills. They also provided transport for several military campaigns. The muscular and heavy-boned Ardennes stands just 15-16 hands, yet can weigh up to 2,200 pounds!
There are toy horses, and then there are Breyer Model Horses.
Traditional Series models are the largest and most popular Breyer model size available. Sculpted in every color and breed imaginable, the Traditional series offers unmatched realism and breathtaking hand-painted detail. Traditional models are a 1:9 scale and measure approximately 12"L x 9"H.
The Freedom Series, formally known as Classic, are 1:12 scale models. These are hand painted and feature the same true-to-life details and unsurpassed quality as Breyer’s Traditional Series. The 1:12 scale horses are approximately 9"L x 6"H.
Breyer Stablemates miniature models are just as detailed and authentic as the larger Breyer models. Stablemates are a 1:32 scale and horses are approximately 4"L x 3.5"H.
Paddock Pals, also known as Little Bits, is the legacy name used for Breyer’s 1:24 scale models. They are not currently in production outside of unpainted activity sets.
A retired model is one that has been discontinued and is no longer in production.
Breyer has been producing a special Holiday Horse each year since 1997. Every year is different and spectacular.
CollectA models are vinyl, hand-painted models with a high degree of accuracy in both conformation and color. They are both affordable and almost impossible to break and have been around since 2006. Sizes of CollectA models vary from small (averaging approximately 3 inches tall) to the Deluxe (1:12 scale, averaging approximately 7-9 inches tall.)
Breyer showcases the inspiring beauty of horses and invites everyone to create and bring to life their own vision of horse beauty by styling, grooming, and creating magnificent braids. Breyer Mane Beauty Styling Heads have long, silky, no-tangle manes, and are realistically sculpted and decorated with diverse colorways.
Usually used as shorthand for “decorator”, a type of model that is painted in an unrealistic color or pattern that isn't possible on a real horse.
Horse of the Year, a limited edition Freedom Series (formerly Classics) model that debuts a new 1:12 scale sculpture in a striking coat color. Horse of the Year models are only available the year they are produced.
