Just when you thought they couldn’t get any odder… behold the doodle horses!

Thingamapony

Once upon a time there was a Doodle Pony so purple that not even the most stubborn of Marthas could figure out a way to make her appear correctly in photographs… (goldarnit!)

Thingamapony might be wearing her Dioxazine Purple points with a rather malevolent glee, but she’s got enough spark to spice up any bookshelf herd. Heck, she’ll even come make your office look that much more awesome if you let her!

This little gal is a shaded metallic purple (amethyst) with slightly darker points (evil dioxazine purple) that mimic a bay horse. As you can see from the ‘with flash’ photos, this little gal has a lavender mane, not the dark purple that shows up in most of the photographs. The base body color seems to come through without problems so I’m not sure why the points insist on being so much bluer than they are in real life.

Her silver doodle pony markings are bolder than the norm, but that’s because this little gal wouldn’t settle for anything less. She’s here to make a splash and remind you that purple is the color of royalty for a reason. (That reason being tyrian purple was crazy expensive at the time, but don’t tell her that!)
