Breyer Horse Collection - Mercury's Flight, The Story of a Lipizzaner Stallion by Annie Wedekind In 1930's Austria, life for Favory Mercurio, a Lipizzaner stallion bearing the crest of the renowned Piber stud, begins with the loss of his mother. From that moment on, the young horse feels different, as if he has a missing piece, even though he has talent enough to be accepted into the famed Spanish Riding School. Mercury perseveres through the rigors of his years of training, but then, as war bears down on Vienna, his beloved trainer, Max, is suddenly gone, and Mercury is alone once more. Will he become one of the great Lipizzaner stallions, or will he lose the people, horses, and home that he loves?
