While Barbaro was spending his 207th day in his stall in the intensive care unit of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s George D. Widener Hospital at New Bolton Medical Center on Dec. 13, his replica was being exhibited in the hospital’s Woerner Amphitheater, along with a check for $114,710 presented to New Bolton by the model’s creator and manufacturer Breyer Animal Creations, the world’s top-seller of equine-themed toys and collectives.


The Barbaro models have been on the market–on eBay, in retail stores, pet stores, and equestrian shops etc–for several months. Breyer, in an effort to assist New Bolton in saving the lives of horses in much the same manner as they did for Barbaro, have based their donation on the total amount of models sold, plus $10 for each model.
