Misty (#20)

The Misty mold on Identify Your Breyer

Model Run: 1972-current, One of Breyer's longest running models. Sculpted by Chris Hess. Palomino or chestnut pinto (depending on model) mare.
Three versions of Misty have been produced with two different pinto patterns. Misty's model has also been produced as a flocky and in porcelain. Misty and Stormy were produced in a boxed gift set from 1972-1981 (#2055). In 2007, Misty and Stormy were released into a boxed set (#1286), and were no longer sold separately.
1. "4 eyed"-1972 only. This version was the first, and is also the rarest. It has white spot around the right eye and a brown spot on the left. Marguerite Henry didn't like the circle around her right eye so it was changed. This version was produced in glossy with matte versions being very rare.
2. "3 eyed"-1973?. The second version is as same as the first but it does not have a spot around Misty's right eye. The pinto pattern is strange and is nothing like the real Misty. Marguerite Henry did not approve of this version as well. This version was produced in matte with glossy versions being rarer.
3. 1973-2006. The third version is common and sports a different pinto pattern. It was changed to closer resemble the real Misty, but it is still not correct. The model still has the brown spot around her left eye, which the real Misty did not have.
4. 2007-current. The fourth version is common and is the same as the previous pattern, but has a shaded and darker paint job.

Performing Misty (#79293)

Model Run: 1993. Ceramic palomino pinto "shaking hands" on a stool. Sculpted by Maureen Love Calvert. Commissioned and sold by Breyer from Hagan-Renaker. This model is fairly rare as it is breakable ceramic and was only produced for a year. The model resembles the real Misty and is performing a trick that she used to do.

Misty II, Black Mist, and Twister (#3350)

Model Run: 1996-1999. This was a set of three models released for Misty's 50th Birthday. The set included Misty II, a granddaughter of Misty, and Black Mist and Twister, two of Misty II's daughters.

Misty II-Chestnut pinto on the Ruffian mold. The markings on Misty II's model are accurate compared to the real pony.

Black Mist-Black pinto on the Swaps mold. Black Mist's model's markings are correct, but she is portrayed on a stallion mold.

Twister-Palomino on the Mesteno the Foal mold. The real Twister's full name is Misty's May Day Twister and the mold is a male foal while she is female. The real Twister has a blaze shaped like a tornado and only has on white foot, while the model has a vaguely marked bald face and four white feet.
