A horse-buying trip to Walls, Mississippi, led the gospel singer and King of Rock 'n' Roll to a 65-foot tall, white cross on a cattle ranch with a "For Sale" sign out front. Elvis bought the ranch, renamed it the Circle G (for Graceland), and found a smooth gaited horse to ride along its fence line: a prize-winning, flat-shod black Tennessee Walking Horse gelding, named Bear. Elvis would saddle Bear up before breakfast and together they would explore the ranch's 163 acres. When it came time to return to Graceland, Bear came too, and fans were accustomed to finding the pair – the glossy black-coated gelding and his rider, bedecked in a black leather jacket and chaps – riding along the estate. Whether galloping along the fieldstone walls of Graceland, checking on cattle at the Circle G, or quietly waiting as his famous rider signed autographs for fans, Bear earned a special place as a partner and friend among all the King's horses. Includes Elvis' signature and Bear's name printed on the model's belly. Traditional 1/9 scale; approximately 9" tall.
