Customarily Breyer included a Collector's Manual in every box. (I believe they stopped the practice recently, in last 5 years or so?) [I just read somewhere that they are still including catalogs but are going to stop this year.]
Although Breyer began producing animal models in the 1950s, to my knowledge, 1969 was the first only the 2nd Collector's Manual. I've seen black & white copies of earlier Dealer's Catalogs, but I don't recall there being an earlier Collector's. If there is, it's extremely rare. (I really should do some research on that.) [There is a 1968 Manual. I created a thread to show it.]

1969

(oops, i see that the Running Mare is "chestnut," contradicting what i said in Anna's thread about her old Breyers. As i recall, they later changed it to "bay." I forgot about that little quirk in Breyer history.)

1970

The Brahma was sculpted by Edward Boehm.

His company is still around: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Boehm also sculpted the walking Hereford, walking Angus, Poodle, and Boxer.

It's probable all the Boehms were unauthorized copies, given that at the time Boehm's work was being acquired by the top museums around the world and places like the Vatican and various palaces. (and knowing that Breyer had more than one spat with Hagen Renaker over unauthorized copies.)

Thanks for showing the catalogues! I had Breyer's back in the early seventies(Gave them to friend for his daughter in the late eighties).
I loved my Clydesdale, Grazing Mare and foal, Yellow Mount, Man O War, Misty, Jumping Horse, Western Horse, Running Stallion, Old Timer as well my Boxer(With nicely cropped ears) : )
As said before brings back great memories!

I never knew about Breyer, since i started to collect Schleich, and came in contact with horse-people... Laughing
But they made great models through the years, real pieces of art sometimes, and quit a few of them would not be bad in my collection... Shocked Cool

Yes Breyers did some great animals beside horses.I have the Brahma Bull,Texan Longhorn Bull,and the Simmental Bull and love them!Got some of the older horse models as well and they are really great.It used to be so easy to get them in shops but alas this isnt so anymore and also sad that they are not giving the catalogue with the models anymore.

One question: were those animals made in hollow plastic at that time? Because I seem to recognise a few of the horses...

Yes, they are all hollow. the Basset Hound and Kitten weigh so much you might think they're solid, but they're not. All the Traditionals and Classics are hollow; the Stablemates are solid; I'm 99.9% sure the Little Bits/Paddock Pals are hollow too, but I don't want to swear to it.
