I immediately searched for patterns and found an adorable one here. For a mere $5 I bought the pattern, and got to work. The pattern itself is not too difficult. As long as you're familiar with crocheting in a round, single crochet, and adding/deleting stitches it's not too bad. The downside? It's pretty time consuming. I started making these ponies and naturally shared them on social media. After all, I love a good brag. While I thought they were adorable I was pretty surprised at just how much everyone loved them and in turn, wanted one! I made them for a few little girls I babysat for, and then Kate from The Adventures of Lucy asked for a Lucy pony. How could I say no?
|Then this happened.|
Not only was Kate amazing enough to blog about it, she even posted about it on COTH. To my disbelief, people from all over the US (and Canada!) were emailing me about them. This made for a very busy pre-Christmas season, but I couldn't be happier. I seriously love making these little guys and have loved modeling them after real life horses.

|A birthday present for a pony-obsessed girl I babysit.|
|This is Mini-Nash. He was flea bitten gray and had a half an half mane.|
|My favorite color scheme thus far. It screams little |
girl and I wish I could carry it around myself.
I hope you like the ponies, please feel free to ask any questions about them! And keep your eyes peeled for a contest regarding these little guys in the very near future :)
