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:

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! ;)

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 white and gray kitten named Gremlin. She earned the name...

The powers that be say I must tell the tale of Skybreeze and her journey into the pony world.

It all started on a cold winter day in the middle of a terrible snow storm in the 1980's when a small baby came roaring into the world. This small but strong child grew up through the greatest (in her opinion) era for children's television and toys. Thus starting her life long obsession with cartoons and toy collecting.

As long as this little pony can remember she had always wanted to do one of two things in her life. The first was to work for "Mr. Disney" and the second to work with "aminals." When secondary education came a knock, knock, knocking on her door, she felt going the way of animals was in her best interest at the time. But this gal did not give up her talent of the arts. While she was being educated she worked freelance in the early days for Neopets, Ettapets (no longer a thing) and Anatheria. While also maintaining a part time job at a thrift store. Upon graduation Skybreeze has had the great honour to be a veterinary technician (nurse for animals) and later got her registration. She has worked in all aspects of critter medicine including in regular practices, emergency and referral/specialist clinics. (She was even on tv a few times because her emergency clinic had a show that aired on Discovery Channel many years ago now.)

Growing up as an only child in the 80/90's, Skybreeze had a natural knack for collecting things of her past that brought her joy. Since the wee age of three she's been collecting G1 MLP and would buy ponies with her allowance whenever possible. Over the years she's collected many a treasures much like Ariel. Her collections have gone from, Barbies, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Ghostbusters, Tigger, Care Bears, Rainbow Brite, Precious Moments, Lady Lovely Locks, Fairy Tails Birds, Keypers, Plushies, Tweety Bird, Backstreet Boys & *N SYNC... Collecting is deep rooted within this pony's little heart. To this day she still collects
MLP (G1, G4 & G5), Lady Lovely Locks and Fairy Tails Birds.

With her love of collecting and extreme anxiety disorders Skybreeze decided to bring two of her loves together, MLP and crafting. These two things have always been a good stress relief and have brought peace into Skybreeze's life. So, she started making MLP custom ponies, right down to simple restorations, re-rooting and completely customized ponies. She has since moved on to working with Fair Tails Birds and working with new crafting mediums including sewing, resin, sculpting and mould making.

Skybreeze currently resides in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She shares a home with her two dogs (Shih Tzu's). When not working, you can often find her out on one of Ontario's many beautiful hiking trails with her puppers, enjoying the many cultural food options in the city, swimming at the cottage, catching a stage show or newest musicals, binge watching her favourite tv shows or movies and travelling the world.

Anywhoot, this must appease the pony gods now. If there's anything more you'd like to know or if you have questions, please send me a message! I'm always happy to meet and chat with MLPTP members!!

My Name Is

I hope to become great friends with you!

My story begins with horses, yes, just plain toy horses. I did not want ponies.
I didn't want these color little princess ponies.
Nope, just good ol plain horses for this girl.

Growing up, I wasn't really into ponies. I did like Sunny Daze though from G3.
So she was able to live amongst my herd of Grand Champion Horses.
(though she stayed in box, I never played with her lol)

You may be wondering where my love of ponies actually came in, don't ya?

Well, here comes g4 in 2010 and I boycotted it!
Why you ask? Because they did not have my beautiful Sunny Daze of course!

Here comes year 2012/2013ish and I was perusing Youtube mindlessly like a lot do.
I came across this fan made video of Pinkie Pie and all her friends having an eventful picnic.

Well, you know how the videos pop up on the side? I some how found myself watching g4 from episode 1.

And that is the birth of my pony craze!

---------------------------------

General Info About Me!

Born, raised, and still living here.

90's baby!
1991

I do collect all generations g1-5
(all accept for G3.5)

I have not counted how many ponies I have because I have a whole room of ponies!

A few of my favorite ponies:
Jenny, Munchy (army 1), Baby Frosting (army 2), Sunny Daze, Rarity, Coloratura
and of Course Po-Nay, my own little pony.

I created Po-nay in 2013. I generally just sketched a pony, but I fell in love with her.
So I finished out the sketch with full digital color (my profile picture)
She has never changed in style since I made her.
I love her dearly and wanted her to be real,

so I have commissioned many artists to do just that for me!

My other current collections are: Maneki Nekos, Pusheen, Skeletor,
Budweiser Beer Steins (because I LOVE the Clydesdales), Meowchis from Tastey Peach Studios,
And Various other do dads I find that I absolutely need!

I do not have any children, but I do have one of the best men in the world!
His name is Shark.
He totally takes care of me and is a HUGE supporter in my Pony Collecting World!
He even buys me ponies (like Jenny!)


I have had many pets over the years and I love and cherish each moment I have had with them.
Those pets range from fish, cats, dogs, a racoon, chickens, and a goose!

I don't really do much, but when I do, these are the things I do:
Going to the movies, Thrifting, Generally Spending Money, Haha.,
Going to a new place to eat, go walk down by the lake,
go for an evening drive with my boyfriend.
I also like to take pictures of my ponies with his
BMWs so that I can combine both of our collections.

---------------------------------

If you would like to know more about me or have any general questions,

don't be afraid to send me a personal message!
I am here to help make the MLPTP a warm and welcoming place to be!
