The strong sunlight may make it hard to see that there are purple swirls on the saddle skirt. That's a gold bridle, too. The saddle seat is green. The mane and tail are copper bronze. Wow its bright out there! I think this project is done and good enough. I have another horse out in that garden area. I may buy another can of copper spray paint and give him a going over next. There are pumpkin plants and a tomato and a cucumber along with the tub of blooming cat mint there by the horses. I've never been a gardener who just planted plants. Got to have a little jazz mixed in, you know?

@rakski This is an ornamental warrior pony. He's retired from all kids.

@rakski If the chain and wire is heavy enough to hold up a kid, I guess it might be all right. I love to watch Silver sway in the wind.

@kobesbuddy I like that. A horse ranch. I wish I could find some other plastic critter but I guess only horses were ridden by the kiddos in the 50s and 60s.

@DianneN Thanks. I am not totally delighted with the gold paint on the bridle. It did appear to show more when it dried, though. In a way I wish I could find more of these horses so that I could do more color quilting. I've graduated from color books! Now if I only had the steady hand of youth.

@DianneN Thank you. I wonder if there were other animals besides horses? Such fun on Christmas morning, the kids getting one of those bouncy horses.

@JudyEv Next up is Silver's companion. I think I will paint that guy copper. Poor guy's tail fell off so I put some glue on. I hope the glue sticks well!

@sallypup Copper is a great name for a horse too. I hope you'll consider that as a name.

@JudyEv You're great at names. I guess the horses will be Silver and Copper from now on.

@Janet357 "Silver" pony is made of plastic. He started out as one of those ride on bouncy kid's toys- you possibly aren't old enough to remember those. They had a metal frame with springs attached. A child got on and had tons of fun bouncing on the horse.
