Lisa from Arizona wrote on November 29, 2017:
Did signed ponies always come with a COA? thanks
Response From Trailmaster:
Signed Ponies purchased through The Trail of Painted Ponies Official Store did, yes. Sometimes artists signed Ponies independently and these may or may not have been accompanied by a COA.

I have the retired Trail of Painted Ponies Medicine Horse without a tag telling the story behind the horse. Could you tell me the story behind the horse. Thanks
Response From Trailmaster:
Check out the Registry, which is under the Collectors drop-down menu. If you go to the Collectors Guide section you can look up the story and information on any figurine crafted to date.

I have collecting painted ponies for years. Where can I find retired painted ponies, that are sign with sign paperwork to purchase?
Response From Trailmaster:
Some artist-signed Ponies are available on eBay. We also have some artist-signed Ponies on the Official Trail of Painted Ponies Store. As well, if you contact an artist directly, they may have some of their retired figurines they would be willing to autorgraph and sell to you.

My sister said she saw a mardi gras horse in a magazine. Did you make tose and can we still get it?
Response From Trailmaster:
Unfortunately, the image your sister saw was not an Official Painted Pony. We have not created any Mardi Gras Ponies.

I have 2009 and 2007 Christmas painted ponies. you said we could sell them on eBay, is there any other way to sell them? And how much are they worth? Perfect condition, box included?
Response From Trailmaster:
I'm going to let my answer to this question be a response to a number of other Ask the Trailmaster questions that have come in. First, it is impossible to say exactly how much a retired figurine is worth. We do not have a way of determining a set value on older Ponies. It all depends on how rare it is, its condition, whether it was signed by the artist, what the demand is, how much a collector is willing to pay to add it to their collection. Some figurines may be worth the retail price you paid when you bought it, while someone who wants to add a particular Pony to their collection may be willing to pay a significantly higher price. Many of the retired earlier Painted Ponies, with low numbered editions, are selling for hundreds of dollars. The highest price we are aware of paid for a retired Pony was $1,200. Secondly, we are in the process of developing a place for people to buy/sell rare Ponies, but for the time being the best place to go is eBay, or, additionally, a new place that has just been brought to our attention. It has a long address but may be worth your checking out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PaintedPoniessellbuyswapauction/

just obtain two pictures of black and white ponies with some red painted on burlap with the artist name bibi. it is numbered.
Response From Trailmaster:
This doesn't sound like an Official Painted Pony. There have been several knock-off painted horse lines and perhaps this picture is one of them.

Lu Ann W Turlington from North Carolina wrote on November 14, 2017:
Do all painted ponies come in a box. Some have that they come in laminated boxes others say nothing about being boxed.
Response From Trailmaster:
When purchased new from a reputable retailer, or the Official Trail of Painted Pony Store, all legitimate figurines come in a laminated box.
