Q: How many ponies do you have?
A: I'm really not sure, but perhaps somewhere near 3,000.
Q: How long have you been collecting?
A: I've had my first pony (Cotton Candy) since as early as I can remember. I've collected off and on since then.
Q: Where did you find all these ponies?
A: Very few of the vintage ones were actually purchased in stores. As well as it being a side hobby, I scour yard sales, flea markets, and online auctions,
where I sometimes find opportunities to add to my collection.
Q: Why do you collect?
A: Ponies were an integral part of my childhood, and they have always brought me a feeling of nostalgia and joy. My collecting hit full speed when I was
diagnosed with a serious lifelong health condition in my teens, and the hobby provided me with an activity and
a passion that I could participate in without risking my physical health in the process. It all sort of just came together that way, and
since meeting some wonderful fellow collectors over the years who are also now my long-time friends spanning decades, there
simply wasn't any reason to stop!
Q: What is your collection worth?
A: I'm not sure, but fellow collectors have estimated at least enough to buy a new car.
Q: Where did you get that giant "life size" pony?
A: Scroll down for more info on the giant pony.

1986 Lifesize My Little Pony Commercial Prop
This "life-size" My Little Pony stands at 49", or just over 4 feet tall. It is made from a strange plastic compound that weighs close to 250lbs including its base. It depicts a Sweetheart Sister Pony which looks very similar to Spring Song, with added embellishments to her mane and tail, and a headdress of flowers. Through the body of the pony is a spiraling wooden post, used in its original purpose as a carousel post.
This pony, as well as its two fellow handmade one-of-a-kind yellow and pink counterparts, was used in a 1986 commercial for My Little Pony. In this commercial, three girls sit upon these giant ponies on a spinning carousel in the commercial's opening. After production, the ponies were stored in a warehouse and untouched for about 20 years. In 2007, during a cleaning out of that warehouse in Orlando, FL, these ponies were discovered and put up for sale. Each had to be shipped through freight. I purchased the purple one because it happens to be my favorite color.
This pony is NOT for sale.
I will not acknowledge, entertain, or accept any offers.
