Big Red
Big Red

Pony Story: A culturally diverse and worldly fellow, Santa has many interpretations and different names: Father Christmas in England, Kriss Kringle in Germany, Pere Noel in France, Saint Nicholas in the Netherlands.

Destined to become a classic, “Big Red” is a lavish and loving example of how the symbol of Christmas is no longer just a decoratedChristmas tree, but is now all about artistic expression.

From the ribbons to the bows, from their heads to their toes, this is a celebration of Christmas, kitten style! It seems that the holidays are never complete without sharing them with our favorite companions, and so we wish you a pretty, kitty Christmas. About the Artist: Departing from the traditional and conventional, I portray my artwork and Painted Ponies in vivid colors and designs that bring out the power and the soul of each and every one. Each painting or pony is 'alive with color' and has a unique story to go with it. With more than 35 years of professional art, graphic art, photography and design experience, my passion for artistic endeavors has never waned. I believe that an artist's career requires an extremely high degree of dedication to the ongoing process of research, study and mastering techniques in many diverse art fields. The rewards emerge from creativity, from learning and from sharing what one has learned with others through my art. My work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, Australia, Asia, Europe and many public art projects. I am very proud to be an official Trail of Painted Ponies artist.

Gingerbread Pony

Pony Story: Come Christmas in artist Lynn Bean's home, baking gingerbread cookies was a cherished tradition. "As my mother rolled out the dough, my sister and I would press the cookie cutter designs of stars, bells, animals and people. The yummy smell of gingerbread baking would fill the kitchen. After the cookies cooled we would add frosting and decorations. Then we would eat the rejects, making enough to take to Grandma's house or for friends at school." With these magical memories in mind, Lynn designed a Pony of frosted cookies and candies, complete with a Christmas country scene of an old barn and a gingerbread family leading a pony among the trees and bells of the holiday.

Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh
Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh

Pony Story: The story of the Magi is celebrated each Christmas. Three Wise Men, or Kings from the East, followed a radiant star that guided them to Bethlehem, where they laid rare, precious gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, before the baby Jesus. Many believe that these precious gifts brought to the Christ Child by the Three Wise Men, may be the origin of the custom of gift giving at Christmas, which has become universal. About the Artists: Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh is a collaboration between one of the largest dealers of Painted Ponies in the state of Oklahoma, and her best-selling artist. For years, Kami Cain has been the owner/operator of Kokopelli Trails, an art gallery located in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Aloma Wolfington, a native Oklahoman well known for her detailed treatment of Native and Western themes, is a close friend and the creative force behind the figurine Rolling Thunder. Kami had been waiting for a holiday Pony to come along that featured a nativity scene, "because that?s the reason I celebrate Christmas." And one day she could wait no longer. She approached her friend with a name, the concept and a rough sketch, and Aloma took it from there, bringing the idea to life with inspiring beauty.

Let it Snow
Let it Snow

Pony Story: "During the holidays as a child, all I wanted for Christmas was a big fluffy snowfall so I could build a perfect snowman, decorated with a hat and scarf, sticks for arms, a carrot for a nose and big black buttons of coal. Living in the Midwest, coal wasn't readily available, so Mom always had a tin full of buttons for the occasion," recalls Vickie Knepper-Adrian. Now, as an adult, this Iowa artist still finds something magical about "big fluffy snowfalls," and created the Let It Snow Pony, designed to take everyone back to a time and place when they, too, waited with anticipation for the holidays and the chance to build that perfect snowman.

Penguin Express
Penguin Express

Pony Story: Penguins, the subject of several popular movies, have achieved star power. Their current appeal almost rivals the appeal that the horse has to people. Watching them waddle and slide around the ice and snow of the Antarctic in their "tuxedos," it's easy to see why. So it was natural for Idaho painter Maria Ryan to combine the two, and to imagine a scene in which a holiday Pony transports a penguin family across the ice in a snow storm.

Santa's Surprise

Pony Story: When she was little, all this artist ever wanted for Christmas was a horse. She had all kinds of toy horses. Her room was covered with posters of horses. She showed her parents pictures in books of the kind of horse she wanted. When they took her to see Santa, she would tell him "Please, please, bring me a Pony for Christmas." Then one Christmas morning her father handed her a present he said was from Santa. She opened it and let out a scream. It was a new halter with the name "Domino" engraved on a brass plate. She ran to the window and a beautiful bay Pinto was waiting outside for her, saddled up and ready to ride. "Santa?s Surprise" is her gift to every other girl who has had the same Christmas wish for a Pony.

The same little band of angels was so excited at witnessing the birth of Christ, that they burst into a song that reached the heavens and was so melodious it was heard all over the earth. A host of heavenly angels joined in, singing, "Glory be to God in the highest, and on earth, peace and good will to men." Celebrate the beauty and inspiration of the season with "Song of Angels."

Victorian Christmas

Pony Story: No era in history has influenced the way we celebrate Christmas as much as the Victorian Era. Lavish amounts of evergreen boughs, holly, ivy and mistletoe were brought inside to symbolize prosperity. Roses were mixed in as a tribute to the legend of the little girl who happened upon the stable in Bethlehem, was upset because she had no gift for the Christ child, and as she began to cry, her tears turned into beautiful roses. Candles placed in windows during the twelve days of Christmas, carolers singing joyfully on snowy nights, many of our favorite carols, and ""Victorian Christmas"" are all Christmas inspirations from the Victorian Era.

Then you bring in color and sparkle, dressing each figure in the primary Christmas colors of red and green, and sprinkling glitter to make it seem as if it's snowing. And when all the notes are ringing in harmony, you have a masterful, one-of-a-kind Holiday Painted Pony named Village Christmas Cookie that looks so tasty you almost want to bite into it.
