Hagen Renaker Early Horses


This page features horses that were designed by Helen Perrin Farnlund and Tom Masterson. Helen Perrin Farnlund started work for Hagen Renaker in 1946 so she designed many of the early pieces. Tom Masterson designed most of the DW dogs for Hagen Renaker, but he did design other pieces too. These early horses aren't as realistic as other HR horses but they are just as hard to find. Many unauthorized copies were produced of these early horses.
