Since this was posted in 2012 I guess it is about time to get around for a little update!


Here we go, 2020 update:

I'm Annicken, or CC as I go by the rest of the time.
I was born in 1989, live in Norway with my American/Norwegian husband and our 3 boys; Luke, Ben Kenobi and Hans Solo <3
I have worked as a verger for the past 11 years.
I love wrestling, I love Formula 1, I love metal music, I love gaming and I love crafting. Always up to learn some new crafts, mostly right now I do polymer clay.

I have an instagram for my collection https://www.instagram.com/cannibalcow_/

I collect mostly g1 and g2. I will buy the occasional g3 and onward.
I am mostly selling my ponies now, only keeping the ones I really want, meaning cutting down from many many hundred to just a few hundred.
If I buy anything now it will most likely be a set completer or accessories.
Goals and grails would be Cherries Jubilee related ponies and merch I don't currently own.

Other than pony stuff I love Dungeons and Dragons and have a decent dice collection. I really, really love dice!
I have some balljointed dolls, other horse figures, Batman, Star Wars, gaming related stuff, just about anything I *really* like the look of. Having 3 kids cuts down on collection space though :p My weirdest collection would be one I have with my husband that we call the Magpie Jars. We pick up interesting things we find on the ground and see if they qualify to come home and be put in a jar. So anything from a button, a chess piece, a necklace, a keychain, a small figure, basically anything that is shiny and within the 'requirements' XD I really love that collection because it's also a competition to see who finds the coolest thing!

:CJ::CJ::CJ:

This is just looong rambling about my collection so feel free to skip:

http://instagr.am/p/BoM6PgmHr3b/
I got my first pony in 1992 or so, Daffodil, and after that I just kinda never stopped. My real love for horse toys started when I saw Starlight the walking horse made by Galoob at my cousins birthday party. Somehow she magically appeared at my grandparents house after that and to this day I have never seen a toy as beautiful as her :ponylove: I have been through a few different waves of collecting. I remember G1's being in the store, staring at them for hours while my grandparents did shopping and the lucky occasion where I got to pick one and take home. I got them for birthdays and christmas and my love for horses in general grew and grew. I started hanging out in stables and playing with ponies and horses with my horse crazy friends. When 'everyone' grew out of their ponies I ended up getting them all! So I had a fairly large g1 collection at the end.

When g2's came out me and my only friend who also still collected ponies had been asking when the ponies would come back at the toy stores for a while, and we were quite happy when they showed back up! I spent my own money on ponies then and I bought as many as I could. I really love g2's.

G3's came around and I still spent my money on them. My grandpa made a shelf that went along the wall near the ceiling where all my ponies were lined up nice under my glow in the dark stars :) I bought ponies at flea markets, got some from friends who had found some of their old ones and I found out there was a community for ponies online, but I didn't join because I was young and not confident in writing english to people, so I lurked every chance I had when I got on a computer :p

My room got redecorated, ponies went to the loft. 2-3 years later I got a visa card and did the only natural thing there was to do: Sign up for ebay and buy Daddy Apple Delight, one of the ponies I absolutely wanted the most as a kid. After that it was just a lost cause and I bought basically everything I came over.

In '07 I officially joined the TP and I have made so many good friends over the years <3 For many, many years I was actively doing art, adoptables, customs, buying and a little bit of trading and selling. Mostly just hoarding ponies though :tongue: I moved a few times, ponies packed up and each time it was just more boxes of ponies. In the end they went all the way to a storage unit and I had some time to reflect over my collection.

That started with a huge clearout which is still ongoing where I am trying to get rid of ponies I don't feel like I love just as much anymore, and buying a few ponies for sets I want to complete. My main focus now I would say is set completion and getting accessories and of course I have to mention Cherries Jubilee.

I have a love for the g1 brides and birthday pony, but man oh man do I love me some Cherries Jubilee! I'm closing in, if not crossed the 100 mark of CJ's in my army. Plus a bunch of customs, art and other things. I have as a goal to get every CJ and CJ merchandise I possibly can. Now, I have long since stopped buying any of the regular CJ's, but they just kinda keep appearing anyways :lolpony:

Hi everyone,

My name is Clare but most people online call me Nat or Nattie (or the cheeky sods who've known me for good awhile call me Auntie Nattie! ):lolpony:. I've been a mod here since 2004 and a member since 2001.

I live in a land even further away than CC but it's not cold over here! I'm an Australian, but let me assure you that there's no Kangaroos hoping down the main street contrary to what some people will insist! :p

I'm fairly quiet and do most of my modding behind the scenes but I am always available if you need any help and I promise I don't bite.

I have been collecting since ponies began but only have a very modest collection, mostly of G1s with some MIB (mint in box) G3s in the mix as well. At last count I had around 130 ponies. My favourite is most certainly the yellow variant of Moondancer who I've had since I was a child (and who looks rather the worse for wear!).

My other great loves are horses and dogs. I'm no longer able to ride and have been horseless for a long time but I still love them. I have two dogs, a rough and a smooth collie. They are mother and son, we do various dog sports together and dabble a little in the conformation show ring.

Please feel free to contact me if you need anything as after all that is what we're here for.

Nat.

Hello, TP'ers! :D

I am known as Jewel or MustBeJewel throughout the pony world. I'm from the state of Maryland in the USA, and I have been a part of the collecting community since 2000.

I have been collecting ponies for as long as I can remember, since the first Cotton Candy which was given to me before I could even talk. Since then, my collection has grown from my childhood herd of 45 to over 3000 individual ponies from all over the world, some of them truly one-of-a-kind items. Click the link in my signature to take a look!

Since 2003, I have been the hostess of the annual Maryland Pony Meet, a steadily growing gathering of pony collectors mostly from the eastern shore of the US, though in recent years, collectors have attended from clear across the country!

I became a moderator here at the Trading Post in 2005, and as of 2019 I have become the new owner of the site. I really love interacting with and getting to know the people here, and I greatly look forward to doing all I can for the community. :)

In my non-pony life, I earned my degree in Film, and I currently freelance in videography, editing, voice acting, and photography. In 2011, I completed my first documentary, (unsurprisingly) called My Little Obsession.

In short, collecting ponies has opened up a crazy, quirky, wonderful world to me, both in my own personal experiences and the strong, lasting friendships I have made with fellow collectors. If there's ever anything I can help you with here at the MLPTP, or if you just want to say hi, feel free to drop me a PM anytime! ;)

Hi, everyone!!!

My name is Karina / Peppermint Truly. I live in the San Francisco bay area in California USA with my dog Diesel.

I work at a mobile app/web startup and I enjoy painting, PONIES (duh), horror movies, vintage cars, and many other things. I first showed up in the online pony scene when Mexican ponies first showed up and I've loved and been part of the TP ever since. As for ponies, I especially love foreign/variant ponies from all over the world.

My favorite pony: Peppermint Crunch - and Truly
My holy grail: Spanish Milky Way
Afraid of: BBE Ponies
Favorite FiM character: Pinkie Pie cracks me up, Fluttershy makes me wanna squeeze her to death (in a cute, non-evil way)

This is some of my collection with Diesel Husky:

Greetings Fellow Pony Pals!

Let's see, I guess pony interests first. I've been collecting ponies for pretty much my whole life, growing up in the 80's I had lots of ponies and they were my favorite toys. As I got a little older even though most of my toys were lost to yard sales or given away I always hung on to my ponies. Eventually they ended up boxed up and in the attic through most of my teen years. When I got into my late teens and people were starting to actually have computers in their homes and I discovered eBay in around 1999 my interest in ponies was reborn. I still remember sitting there looking for stuff on ebay when the idea popped in my head to search for MLP and my jaw dropped! I saw so many I had never seen before! Shortly after I learned about the collector's guide (Debra Birge's) and I ordered one of those too. I sat in my room going though it in awe of all the ponies I'd never seen before and I wanted them all! So then the ponies came down from the attic, I had about 50 from my childhood and I started buying them here and there off ebay and would look for them at thrift stores and such. Now 20+ years later I have somewhere around 550 I think (haven't counted in a while) and I am proud to say I have a pony room :) I collect G1 exclusively and really have a soft spot for merchandise. My grail pony was the Argentina Feliz Navidad pony and I got her several Christmases ago (greatest Christmas EVER!) I've been a TP member since 2006, I remember thinking I was original and odd for loving MLP like I do and then the internet showed me I wasn't alone. Yay, for other crazy pony people!!!

I live in VA, have been here my whole life. I'm married to my high school sweetheart. No kids but love dogs. I'm the office manager at a doctor's office. I love to cook/bake and I'm usually in the kitchen. I love holidays...all of 'em but especially Christmas. I go all out decorating for most everything and I love everything about it!

I'm generally a home body, I prefer reading a book or working in the yard, watching TV, whatever but I'm not very social honestly. It's not that I don't like people it's just that I like being home in my PJs!

I also collect/like The Little Mermaid, Eeyore, Charming Tails, most 80's toys, Garfield and Peanuts/Snoopy.

Hey friends!

You can call me CJ (that's actually my for-real nick name from childhood) and I now live in the state of Arizona. I am originally from the Pacific NW and have also lived in New Mexico and Michigan. I am a dance teacher and choreographer and have been on faculty of university and college dance programs in many states, as well as private dance studios. I primarily specialize in ballet, but I also love modern dance.

I have collected MLP since I was young and have my entire childhood collection (100+ ponies) as well as a ton I have added in adulthood. Actually, I can blame my resurgence of collecting (and my membership on the TP) on my husband who purchased a Dream Castle and Paradise Estate as Christmas gifts for me several years ago. In his search for them he stumbled across the TP and I ended up joining after Christmas.

In addition to ponies, I love to sew and craft and love animals - birds in particular. We have two green cheek conures and a small flock of finches. We also have a very large, fat orange and white striped cat named Fezzik and recently added a flame point Siamese cat named Jackpot. He is half Fezzik's size and weight and they have become firm buddies.

Uh oh... this little mod hasn't posted either. Derp! I'll be back when I have a brain to type a bio!

Edit: 2-20-2019. YEARS later I have not added info. I almost want to leave it like this again, then come back a in few years and make another excuse, but I gotta do this sometimes. So here we gooooooo!

I'm da evilbunnyfoofoo. I bop fieldmice. I am not sorry for this. They all had it coming, regardless of what some Hairy Faerie wants you to believe. And now for the rest...

I am a freelance artist, and I run an animal shelter, caring for a multitude of critters, including a passle of real life ponies, one very spoiled horse and a llama who hates my son Action Hank, who is also a board member. My partner of 18 years is a Pony Fiend as well. The family that Ponies are never phony, or something that sounds clever... I'm relatively harmless unless cornered. That's probably all you need to know.

My journey started when I bought my little sisters the Dream Castle and a Pony each for Christmas with babysitting money wayyyy back in the stone age, right after Ponies has just evolved from primordial ooze. My sisters loved them, but I coveted the toys I bought my darling siblings, I wanted to steal them. So, I tried to do the honorable thing and buy my own. And I did, for years. I loaded up on colourful equines and loved every minute of it. However, sorrow entered my world in 1999 because during a move, my huge tub of all my Ponies was stolen. I have never replaced them all, but I work at it here and there. Mainly I buy whatever bits I find at thrift stores or new releases. My ponies still mainly live in tubs.

Where they plot my death.

If I stop posting for too long, you know I am dead. DUN DUN DUNNNNNN!

Otherwise I love to look at everyone's collections (even though I admit sometimes being very envious!) and chatting with all you great guys and gals. I am up all night, so if you need the late night mod with a fluffy bunny bod, I am your surly sod! PM me whenever you need!

I am so stinking rhyme-tastic!

And THAT is what I did for summer vacation. The end. I swear I wrote this sober, no matter how it appears otherwise.
