Halfpint (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Standing Pony)

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

Halfpint is a Safari Ltd. TOOB standing pony painted to a mealy bay with more primitive dark points, along the lines of an Exmoor pony, but not quite as contrasted. He has a short blaze, one tiny sock, glossed eyes and nostrils, 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!)

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?

As is common with this mold, he had some leg issues which means he got a nifty green grass base to keep him stable. (puns!) It’s 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!

This little gal was started back in January of 2021 (new year’s art resolutions!) and finally finished up in April 2021 as part of a Paint ALL the Ponies! bonanza.
