The Sir Wrangler Breyer


Wrangler has now been immortalized as a Breyer Model, available 1998 and 1999.  He is portrayed as he looked during his show career.

Our daughter, Linze Bard, collects Breyers.  At the NW Breyerfest show in Puyallup, Washington in 1996, we listened to Stephanie Macejko explain how they recruit new models.  Linze asked me to submit Wrangler.  He would be a perfect role model, being the leading sire of youth horses.  Breyer gets 1,000 requests a year.  I sent Stephanie  information and color photo copies of him and his progeny in all facets of life.  She explained that their line was set for the next year but she would keep the information in her file.  However she put one of the photos on her wall!


The next Breyerfest I had more information plus a Breyer model painted like Wrangler.  I gave this package to Stephanie.  She called back one month later and said OK!   They chose a running model that originally was the Black Beauty mold.   What an honor!

Puyallup, Washington Breyerfest

August 8, 1998, Wrangler was Guest of Honor at the Breyerfest in Puyallup.  Joe and I signed models and let people ride Wrangler.  Young and old alike - everyone was thrilled!  


Wrangler was guest of honor at the Couer D'Alene, Idaho, and Puyallup 1999 Breyerfests.



Also a Wrangler filly, Wild Bay Be Blues, and her mother are on the horse stamps made about 10 years ago.  This was the model for the little Hagen-Renaker porcelain statues and postcard puzzles.

Year 2000 Wrangler became a Golden HorseShu trading card.  Published by Stellar Corp.  and available at many western stores and magazines.
