Petunia (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Rearing Pony)

Petunia is a Safari Ltd. TOOB rearing pony painted to a flaxen purple with realistic brown eyes, a wide blaze, and a semi-gloss finish. I trimmed up her 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.

She’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 gal was started in March 2021 and finished in April 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.
