The Family Arabian Stallion (abbreviated FAS) was introduced in 1958 with no mold marks whatsoever. In early 1960 a partial round “Breyer Molding Co.” stamp appeared, followed later in that year by a full round stamp. In 1970 the “U.S.A.” stamp was added, with some also having the “B” stamp as well. Early models have correct stallion genitalia, but by sometime between the early 1970s and 1983 the scrotum becomes a solid bar. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess based on the Hagen-Renaker “Amir” sculpted by Maureen Love. It is Breyer mold #7.
Woodgrain models, first issued in 1959, are made from regular Breyer plastic which has been painted to resemble carved, polished wood. Some have hand-painted details such as black eyes and white facial markings while others are a solid woodgrain. Popular with collectors, the original woodgrain models were in production through the early 1970s. They are also found on lamps made by Dunning Industries made in the early 1970s.
