Lickitysplit (Custom Safari Ltd. TOOB Running Pony)

Lickitysplit - Custom Safari Ltd TOOB Running Pony - Martha Bechtel - Left

Lickitysplit is a Safari Ltd. TOOB running pony painted to a bay tobiano with realistic brown eyes, grey hooves, 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 July of 2017 and finished in July 2021 as part of my ‘paint ALL the ponies!’ craze. He was one of the ones done in spray sealer, so he’s missing some detailing but I think he still came out nicely. I have an incredibly bad habit of starting things and then getting distracted… this little dude was one of those victims.
