Mairzy Dapples (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Walking Pony)

Mairzy Dapples - Custom Safari Ltd TOOB Walking Pony - Martha Bechtel - Right

Sure, sure, you know Mairzy Doats, but have you met her sister? πŸ˜‚ (I am both silly and old, I embrace this!)

Mairzy is a Safari Ltd. TOOB walking pony painted in a dark bay splash overo with realistic blue eyes, tan hooves, and a matte finish. I trimmed up her seams a little and glossed her eyes, but this pony is definitely meant as a fun shelf piece and not the show ring.

She’s roughly 2.5 inches long and 1.5 inches high, so bigger than a Micro mini or Mini Whinnie (1:64 scale) and smaller than a Stablemate (1:32)– so maybe 1:50ish?

This little gal was started March 2021 and finished April 20201 as part of my β€˜paint ALL the ponies!’ workbench frenzy. I’ve been trying to jumpstart my painting muses so I can work through the enormous body box of magnets and model horses that lurks in my storage bins!
