Domino (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Rearing Pony)

Domino - Custom Safari Ltd TOOB Rearing Pony - Martha Bechtel - Left

Domino is a Safari Ltd. TOOB rearing pony painted in a black tobiano with realistic brown eyes, a wide blaze, tan hooves, and a matte finish. I trimmed up her seams a little, removed her logo, and glossed her eyes, but this pony was meant as a fun shelf piece and not a Live (or Photo) Show competitor.

The Rearing Pony mold isn’t quite as prone to balance issues as the Running one, but this little gal still needed some tweaking to keep from tipping over! I bulked up the right-hind goof with a little Apoxie Sculpt, which is somewhat noticeable and she’s still got a slight lean, but she’s sturdy now and still makes a nice shelf piece.

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 April 2021 as a custom request (because Buster had already sold) and finished June 2021. I also did a walking version (Magpie) to see which they liked best! 😁

Medium: Liquitex White Gesso, DecoArt Americana Acrylics (DA077 Desert Sand, DA163 Honey Brown), Apple Barrel Acrylics (20258 Melted Chocolate, 20503 White, 20504 Black)
