South African Pony Rooting - Restoration Complete
« on: August 03, 2018, 09:26:58 AM »
Well, my dream finally happened. Though not exactly how I thought it might: I finally discovered a South African Pony. Yes, indeed, I promise I did. And my world is now complete. However, the girl has no hair except one last remaining tuft in her mane. But I don't actually care, I love her!

What I thought might be interesting to others is this: it is now very easy to see the unique rooting of an SA Pony

Thus:

I will be rehairing her and as luck would have it I already have suitable hair. I can therefore also take a photo of the inside of her head and tail if anyone should be interested.

Ooh! This will be interesting. Such a beautiful gem, despite the condition. Congrats on getting her.  :heart:

Thank you so much everyone!

I found it tricky to get inside to take the photo's so ended up using my phone. I did take some with my camera, but have somehow misplaced the chord that allows me to download the photo's onto my laptop. I also took some comparative photo's of Paradise's rooting. A few things I noted: the weave is in the same direction and looks similar but is much 'messier' and looks looser. They also 'wrapped' it at the beginning / end (not sure which), which was not done on Paradise.

There are quite a few photo's, so I have put them in spoilers as that is what people like you to do  :)

Firstly, to start off with her head:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Now for her tail:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

And, finally, a comparison to Paradise who was handily near by and has a loose neck seam. Helpful pony!
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I hope you guys found that as fun as I did  :)

I can't wait to get started on restoring her, but it is going to be slightly tricky as her plastic has hardened quite a lot. From the smell of her she has spent the last 20 years in a container filled with crayons.

If anyone is interested, Cherry Pie from Dollyhair is an exact match:

Wow!  This is super informative, thanks for sharing.  These photos are as close as I will ever get to a South African pony!  Can't wait to see her once you've finished her beautification makeover  :D

Completely off the point but I love that that photo makes her look like a serious academic.

Thank you everyone!  :biggrin:

Yes, Taffeta, books are an all abiding life-long passion of mine. Those particular ones are very special to me as they have been in our family for a (very) long time. We altered a jacuzzi room to make it into a library instead. Who would want a jacuzzi when you can have more books? Clearly Heart Throb feels the same: she can't be doing with hair when there are books to be read  :lol:

I'm glad you were able to find a good match for her :) I think I used cherry pie on a custom I made of her some time ago ;)

I am really looking forward to seeing her look beautiful again :)

Love pkw xxx

Thanks for the pics, I would have never guessed it was rooted like that.
