Here is what Breyer has to say….
“Hailing from the Scottish Highlandds and Islands, the Highland Pony developed into a hardy breed from its origins on the moors and mountains. Its coat can be many colors and is often seen in shades of dun with a dorsal stripe, such as this cream dun pony. Enthusiasts today, including HRH Queen Elizabeth, enjoy the Highland Pony for riding, driving and packing.
Breyer® is proud to celebrate the heritage and beauty of Britain’s most iconic native breeds.
