I have been drooling over all the gorgeous pics of people's ponies, so I thought I would start a thread to show off the small collection I have. It is wayyyy smaller than what I have seen so I definitely need more ponies :D

First off is my version of Violet (the Aussie/UK version), one of my childhood ponies. My birthday isn't in feb but I don't remember why I chose her lol

Sea Flower, an opshop find some years ago. She had cut hair, so I've replaced it with hair rescued from a fakie (blue) and a trimmed Cotton Candy tail (which I derusted and opened out to get the length). It isn't perfect, but I'm pretty happy given I have only just started on rehairing.

Last for today is Swinger. She was/is in extremely baity condition (again an opshop purchase). Her pink flower at the front was missing, entire mechanism was rusted, tail and hair cropped very short and she has weird hole/marks in her butt. I removed all the rusted stuff and gave her a new mane and tail (new hair, but very very straight and resistant to curl, plus it is two lengths which I didn't realise when I bought it). She currently has a piece of wood supporting her head on her body and still has a hole in the neck. She was practice rehairing. But oneday she might be practice custom, I'm not sure.

I hope you guys like my pics :)

Please tell me if the photos are sized ok too?

Lovely photos! February Violet is gorgeous, I would love to have her in my collection as well (my birthday isn't in February either ;)). I have Seaflower, mine had very frizzy hair which I was able to de-frizz a bit. Your re-hair job looks very neat!

You got me drooling over your alternate birth flower! So pretty! You may have a smaller collection but you got some beautiful ponies and a pretty rare one too! Very nice!

Maybe it isn't such a small collection afterall! I had about 20 (only G1 and a couple McDonalds G4s) until the bug bit again late last year and I have maybe 40 or so now. But it does feel small to some of the collections I've seen :O

I hope you don't get bored of the garden background, because I did go a little snap happy yesterday, but I thought I would spread the pics out instead of bombing you all at once :)

Today I thought I'd share my twinkle eye girls, all two of them, which I got as a kid.

Speedy (she of the darn Button's pose) who I think has regrind or something weird going on (pale spots on her back).

Tic Tac Toe - look at that gorgeous mane, she definitely has to be one of my favourite ponies.

And the girls together :)

Ohhhhh, I had to share one more :D

Bow Tie, although maybe she should have a name change to something musical :/ She is another op shop find and I have no idea why someone stamped music notes on her, one on her forehead and another below her tail. I can't get them off so she just has to go with it. She was another one with a short cut tail (her tail unfolded also went to Sea Flower), but look at the super swishy one she has to show off now :) It is quiet long and I'm pleased with the colour match. It is peony coloured synatra which is apparently in between nylon and saran in feel. I just chose it because of the colour lol

Been a dreadful couple days here! No sun :O Managed to stab myself in the eye with a stick so optometrist, drops, ointment, etc. Just a bad scratch thankfully. Lots of rain too and a powerline down across the road so redirected going to town.

So time for some pony goodness, sunshiney photos from the other day :D

Today it is my three Sundae best girls.

Peppermint Crunch: She is a childhood pony that the pink on her icecream cone rubbed badly and I tried to fix with nail polish (wayyyy back when). I'll have to eventually clean it off and repair properly. She still smells pretty though :D

Banana Surprise: I think she was an opshop find. I love her aqua coloured hair.

Coco Berry: Her pink hair has faded, but I think the white looks quiet pretty against her body colour. She may or may not get a hair replacement one day. And I dunno where the crown/headband thingo came from or what it belongs to, but Coco thinks she wears it well ;) She probably came from an opshop or garage sale or something I think and she too smells pretty still.

And a pic of all three together, just because they are a pretty bunch :)

If you do come across her and she has her dress, Coco Berry may be able to keep her crown because the necklace is attached pretty hard to her body. Well, mine is anyway. Her whole outfit is stuck to her body because her horn and dress light up. I can only assume Coco’s past owner took Lily apart or just figured out how to get the necklace off
