I've heard breyer horses are pretty fragile in that the legs can break off easily. Dd age 6 wants some really bad for her birthday but I'm afraid her younger sister would be a little rough with them and I can't exactly keep them away from her. Maybe the bigger ones are less fragile? We would be getting the classic version (which is the second biggest.) Should I wait a few years or do they hold up well with moderate play?
They hold up well! I had a set as a kid, but I was about 10 or so. I think with the bigger ones, the little one wont be able to break them very easily.

I had a set growing up. I usually got one as a gift each christmas, so I have quite a few. They will survive moderate play-- only the super tiny ones of mine ever got broken. I loved them though, and was careful with them. It is best if they are stored standing up-- perhaps on a high bookshelf or similar.
For 6yos, those legs break. A lot. Shall I count how many we have with broken legs? Never mind. But the girls still love them.
