No Pasture? Check Out These Life Sized Stuffed Ponies!

This is the oversized plush pony that seems a stunningly lifelike sculpture, but which is every bit the children's climb-on companion. Constructed entirely by artists' hands and requiring 45 man-hours to complete, its cushy padding and custom-designed fabric "hide" make it comfortable to squeeze, while its structural steel frame supports equestrians (up to 150 lbs.) for imaginary bareback rides. The 104 individual pieces that make up this horse are hand sewn in an old-world "inside out" method to reduce visible seams, while the carefully situated fabric stuffing is sewn in place to replicate a realistic musculature beneath the surface. The fabric coat is meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, then airbrushed for delicate variations that make each equine unique. Details such as the pony's soulful eyes, silky mane, and bushy tail attest to the artist's skill and enhance the creature's lifelike appearance. 51 1/4" H x 17 3/4" W x 59" L. (28 lbs.)
