Gypsy Vanner, Egyptian Arabian and Indian Pinto Pony
Another new design! As of a couple weeks ago, I introduced the Gypsy Vanner (Drum Horse, or Gypsy Cob) to the Painted Pony Shop family! His name is Nomad, and he has some very special features! In addition to high quality, genuine leather ears, Nomad has a 2x thick mane, that almost envelops his neck and face, as you would see on a real Gypsy. His mane is made from super soft black and white yarn, and alternates according to the patches on his neck. Nomad's stick body is painted black, with a white "sock" at the end and, *drum roll please*, adorable yarn "feathering" just like the four-legged Gypsies! It's made from the same yarn as his mane, thick and soft. The yarn is free flowing, so when ridden, Nomad's feathers, mane and forelock billow out behind him and swirl around in the wind. Beautiful! :)
Two of the designs that have been revisited are Cricket the Pinto Pony and Raja the Arabian. Raja has had a bridle makeover, so that it no longer contains any metal parts, and now sits high on the nose as a real traditional Arabian bridle would. Available in white or red, the bridle is made from thick, decadent woven fabric trim, dripping with tassels, with smooth ribbon or shimmering gold cord reins. Very pretty! Cricket also has a bridle makeover, her padded nose band now comes in either "rabbit skin" or "bear skin", with plenty of beads and feathers. As always, she has bright, colorful hand painted Indian symbols scattered across her face and neck, that are different and personalized on every horse. Don't they look great?
