Ghost (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Walking Pony)

Ghost - Custom Safari Ltd TOOB Walking Pony - Martha Bechtel - Portrait

Ghost is a Safari Ltd. TOOB walking pony painted a cremello with four white stocks, blue eyes, a small blaze, and sealed with 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.

I haven’t painted a cremello in a long time and it was a lot of fun to figure out how to get just the right shade of ultra-pale tan! Ghost has very subtle pinking in areas and her very narrow blaze is a subtle color change.

She’s roughly 2.5 inches long and 1.5 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 July 2021 as a custom request and finished in the same month.
