Pony Story: No matter where you are in the world, the autumn of the year is the time for fall festivals.

Lovey Dovey
Lovey Dovey

Pony Story: Lovey Dovey is an expression we associate with affection and sentimentality, so it is appropriate that this Appaloosa pony is red - a color traditionally associated with love and passion - that it is graced with two white doves - beautiful birds that mate for life, share the work of building a nest, sitting on the eggs and raising the offspring, which is why they are often released at weddings - and is embellished everywhere with fancifully rendered hearts.

Pony Lover
Pony Lover

Pony Story: An avid animal lover from an early age who was always sketching horses, dogs and cats, this Canadian grew up in the city with a fantasy that someday she would wake up and run to the window, and in the front yard would be an awesome, beautiful and wonderful Pony waiting for her. Later, when she grew up to be an artist, she played with the idea that maybe, if she actually drew and painted the Pony of her dreams, what she pictured in her mind might someday become a reality. So she picked up a brush and went to work, and when she was done, the result was "Pony Lover."
