Blaze (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Running Pony)

Blaze - Custom Safari Ltd TOOB Running Pony - Martha Bechtel - Portrait

Blaze is a Safari Ltd. TOOB running pony painted to a mulberry bay (technically not a thing, but it feels right!) with realistic brown eyes, a blaze and a snip, a grass base, and a matte finish. I trimmed up his seams a little, 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!)

The Running Pony mold has all the tipping issues and this little guy was no exception. His base is a bit of wood that has been painted green and then covered with train grass. The grass is attached with wood glue, so it’s pretty sturdy!

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 January 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 getting distracted… this little dude was one of those victims.
