Davy (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Rearing Pony)

So… I don’t suppose anyone remembers The Monkees? I was trying to think of a good name for this little spitfire and Davy Jones popped to mind! 😅

Davy is a Safari Ltd. TOOB rearing pony painted to a bright orange bay splash overo with realistic blue eyes and a glossy finish. I trimmed up his seams a little and removed her logo, but this pony was meant as a fun shelf piece and not a Live (or Photo) Show competitor.

(This is technically a mare mold, but I’m pretending he’s an undercover gelding. For reasons!)

He’s roughly 2.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches high, so bigger than a Micromini or Mini Whinnie (1:64 scale) and smaller than a Stablemate (1:32)– so maybe 1:50ish?

This little guy was started in July 2017 and finished in March 2021 as part of my ‘paint ALL the ponies!’ craze. I have an incredibly bad habit of starting things… and then wandering off and this little dude was one of those victims. He was mostly finished in 2018, but his paint job had some flaws so he got a touch-up in March.
