Lucky (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Standing Pony)

Lucky - Custom Safari Ltd TOOB Standing Pony - Martha Bechtel - Left

Lucky is a Safari Ltd. TOOB standing pony painted to a bright green tobiano with darker points, realistic brown eyes, dark green hooves, and a glossy 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!)

His green is actually a bit more shaded than it appears in the photos, but I’ve had a heck of a time getting the camera to capture things properly. He’s got a tiny bit of hover-hoof going on, but he stands fine so I didn’t bother making him a base.

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 fella was started waaaaaay back in July 2017 and finished up in April 2021 during my Paint ALL the Things! extravaganza. He’s actually the second green horse in that herd, Gáire Maith beat him out the door by a day or so.
