50th Anniversary is here and Breyer is celebrating with
their Bonanza Portrait Model Horse series!
Countless Americans grew up
on this classic Western television series, which debuted in
1959 and ran until 1973. The series, which featured Lorne
Greene, Michael Landon, Dan Blocker and Pernell Roberts,
chronicled the adventures of Ben Cartwright® and his three
sons on their sprawling Ponderosa Ranch in Nevada Territory
during the 1860s.
Ben Cartwright's Buck was a handsome 15.1 hand horse with
classic buckskin coloration - a tan coat with black on the
legs, and a black mane and tail. Buck's beautiful color,
smooth gaits and gentle temperament made him the ideal
television mount for Lorne Greene, who portrayed Ben
Cartwright, head of Bonanza's all-male family.
