THE BEGINING


I have always have had a love for MY LITTLE PONY for as long as I can remember. I clearly remember playing with my ponies as a child, they brought me so much happiness and were my escape from the world around me which i didn't feel safe in. Ponies were one of the few things I really enjoyed about my childhood... I smile every time I remember playing with my little pony herd... I was 6 years old when I took my younger sisters first pony... I played with it every day and I didn't let that little thing out of my site. My mom noticed I was so attached to it, but she was always aware of my love for horses since age 3. My mother then bought more ponies from a yard sale and thrift shops, and I took those too. I was so happy. I remember some being written on and tail-less so the first thing i did was put a yarn tail on them so they could feel complete.


MY CHILDHOOD HERD:


  • G1 SURPRISE
  • G1 2 BABY SURPRISE
  • G1 MEDLEY
  • G1 TWILIGHT
  • G1 POSEY
  • G1 PEACHY
  • G1 FLOWER BOUQUET (ONLY PONY BOUGHT IN STORE... I REMEMBER THAT DAY SO CLEARLY IN 1988)


When I turned 11 I lost all my childhood ponies. I was playing with my neighbor LOLITA outside and my mother called me in the house. I started gathering my ponies and she begged me to let her play with them a bit longer. I was hesitant, but I went ahead and let her borrow them. That was the last time I ever saw them. when I came back to pick them up she said she had left them on the back of her big brothers truck and they were lost when he drove off. I was depressed for a long time... I remember looking in the street for them. Years went by and I never had a pony again. I eventually blocked it out and grew up.


A NEW START

 

In Dec 13 2002 my best friend at the time by the name of ANN surprised me with a My Little Pony. I was in shock and so happy. It brought so many memories back and I became completely obsessed with them all over again. She told me about EBAY and I went nuts buying tons of them. I was able to re-buy the same ponies I had lost as a child.


Now im a serious collector and I have meet other collecters from different states and countries and have become friends with a few who i am still to this day in contact with. I have also met people who collect ponies like i do from all over the world...

I am a local artist in the Los Angeles area. I'm familiar with all art mediums and I have shown in art galleries throughout California since 1998. In 2003 I began drawing and customizing ponies as a hobby. I still continue creating new pony art and customs to this day.
