Unfinished SA Moonstone - photo's added
« on: April 30, 2019, 06:57:48 AM »
Hi everyone,

Very exciting: a friend of mine has acquired an unfinished SA Moonstone. She has no tail or mane holes. I did look in the gallery, so I see that she is not the first to be found like that. What I wanted to ask is what would her value be? My friend is thinking about selling her you see  :)

I do not have photo's yet, but will upload shortly.

Well, here they are:

As you can see, not only is she unfinished she has no horn. She therefore must have Bowtie's head and not her own - does everyone agree?

In addition to that my friend has indeed decided to sell her. So much so that she is currently up for sale on a local South African auction site. The auction will run until 21 May, I'm not sure as to the rules? Perhaps people can search for it? Am I permitted to post the name of the auction site? It is not my auction.

Oooh! Thank you so much for sharing her with us. I’d love to add her to the nirvana gallery :heart:

It certainly could be Bow Tie’s head. There do seem to be some odd half finished South African ponies, there are a few in the nirvana gallery.

The value, that’s a difficult question to answer, especially with an unfinished, one of a kind pony.

Unfortunately, you can’t share a link to the auction as it’s not your sale :(  even though I know you are helping your friend out.

Thanks pkw, I know I can't share the link but was asking about the name of the website? But I won't share that either if it isn't allowed, don't worry!

I will arrange to get photo's for you, no problem.  :)  The ones I currently have are on WhatsApp, so not the best resolution. I will ask my friend to email me some better ones and post in the donations thread when I receive them.

The reason I said Bowtie is that she is the only blue non-horned SA pony I am aware of so I reckon it must be her? I had a look through the gallery quickly, but didn't see one like her. She's the first I have seen like that anyway.  :)

Wow, she's a beaut, although it's so strange seeing such a smooth, unhaired pony!

She's quite lovely. Would be fun to make a custom of her, but with hair... Though I don't think Firefly's head fits on Moonstones body so well at the neck line.

Is it a well know South African auction site? I think our members know which one it is if so ;)

Yes, you are right, Bow Tie is the only pony to have that pose head in the colour blue. With all the mismatched heads and bodies it gets confusing :P

The other unfinished Moonstone appears to have a white unicorn head!

Here is Bowtie for those who haven't seen her :)

Yes indeed it is the well known SA auction site. I shall leave it at that  :)

Still waiting for the photo's but will post when I have them.

I also noticed the difference in head/body colour with the 'other' Moonstone - interesting!

No problem waiting on the pictures.

These half finished South African ponies are really strange, the Firefly with the green head, Parasol with no eyes or mane and this girl!

Reminder to all: Auction is ending on 21 May.

One thing not to be surprised about on the "Well Known SA Auction Site" that this pony is being sold on - it includes software to stop snipe bidding. So if someone does try to put in a last second bid the auction will automatically reset to give others a further 2 minutes to reconsider their bids. Good luck everyone  :frolic:

PKW, I have received the photo's, could you please let me know in what format (size, etc) you would like them?

Oh thank you so much! Please can you send then as a JPG and the original size/large :)

I can't wait to add her to the nirvana gallery and best of luck to your friend.

Oh no, I'm sorry! I know the last time he had an SA pony for sale someone also had a hard time registering. They contacted the help desk of the site and they were able to assist.

There are still no bids, so either someone is going to get her for a steal or he can just, you know, give her to me (hopes in vain  :lol:)
