I found a Windy at the thrift store today (exciting) but she’s either super faded or the UK variant. None of her paint or symbols look at all faded (she is very dirty-haven’t cleaned her yet).

Does anyone know off hand if they have different hoof markings on the UK versions?

To my knowledge the UK didn't get an alternate windy. There are some nirvana windy, but this lady looks like she might just be faded. I may be wrong, but it looks like some glitter loss on her symbol. That said, there is a white windy nirvana. Htf.
Yes. I highly suspect that she is very faded as I knew the white Windy is very htf. Then again some times when I look at her she looks white to me... wishful thinking. :rolleyespony:

The picture came out terribly in person the symbol looks much better or my eyes are just more horrible than I knew. Lol

I found UK variant on Strawberry Reef:

Oh, I believe you about the picture. I take terrible pictures, especially with my dad camera.

Here's the two from mylittlewiki

To me, I still think you've got a U.S. windy... due to the hair. The white one seems to have so much blue in her mane. I could still be wrong, though.

My advice, get a hold of a classic windy and compare! What better way to find out than by acquiring more ponies! Sometimes the UK versions will have all four feet stamped and the U.S. only two or vise versa. Research may be required. ;)
