Snowdrop's hair is more of a salmon paste colour. (Yes, LAW, I went there again :D)

The pictured pony looks more like Munchy colour than Snowdrop as PKW said. It's not Snowdrop's hair and as PKW pointed out, the rooting style is wrong. Snowdrop, like most other ponies of that time period, has single length hair.

My sister's pony isn't in the best shape, but for comparison...

Clearly not the same rooting style or shade. Also she's a lot more heavy on the eyeliner.

I think it's too dark to be any form of factory pink Posey. I have seen some intensely pink Poseys, esp magenta symbol Poseys when on card, but it's still not the same as that.

I am thinking at the moment that it is a repinked Posey head and tail. The head looks mildly different in colour to the body (which could just be vague mismatch but Posey and Trickles are not the same colour overall, and Posey's body is more translucent, which the head appears to be, and the body not).

Posey and Trickles both I think have green eyes. Also, the rooting inside the head would be still pink and it looks lighter than the hair on the outside, which seems a bit contrary unless that's closer to the original colour. I'm guessing but that's my theory right now. I have seen repinked ponies in that shade before.

The mane does look longer than my loose Posey, but the MOC Posey image I have on my site suggests a longer mane for her, so I'm not sure if the length is consistent. The hair looks very new so could be a reroot, but it's particularly hard to get a rerooted forelock to behave like that...

It would be great to have better comparisons of the heads/eyes...?

It looks a bit like someone nabbed the coral hair of nc Tickle in the factory and just used that.

It looks like a posey head that was repinked to me. The slight off color of the head versus the body makes me think that.

I happened to open a Gypsy the other day to rehair her and the way the hair was sewn in was just as neat as the picture of this Trickles and she was definitely not a rehair. So that’s making me rethink this is a legit variant or factory error after all.

And the hair does look a bit lighter on the inside but I think that’s because of the shine from the camera flash/photo and not because of a dye job.

The lie of the hair suggests its an original root, but I am still sticking with a dyed Posey head. I've seen similar results on actual Poseys in the past, but I would be interested to see a closer comparison of the heads...and the match up with head and body. As I said before, Posey is more translucent in the plastic, and that head looks translucent as well.

On another note - while finding new variants is always awesome, nothing should ever be signed off or assumed to be a variant until every. single. other possibility has been ruled out.

I disagree with that.. I'm terrible at explaining, but I am making a judgement on how the flash is blowing out the hair that's on the outside. The inside is not blown out (or over exposed) at all -- and some of it is even in a shadow.

Hmm yeah, actually I agree, on the 2nd and 3rd pic it looks very light and the neck ring has some suspicious pink staining.

I have looked again at the pictures and I think she is possibly a dye job  :|

The roots inside her head are not a colour match to her hair, it is much to pale. Also as others said you can see what looks like dye on the neck seam?

I still think the hair looks long though :huh:

I still can't quite decide.

I finally found a good picture that illustrates what I said before about MOC Poseys and longer hair...

If that can happen, the pony in the photo definitely has hair within Posey limits.

I'm still persuaded she's a redyed posey head and tail on a Trickles body. I hadn't noticed the pink on the neck seam, but the shade of head to body is different enough to make it probable that's a Posey head.

Thank you Taffeta! Wow her hair is longer than normal. I have not seen her before, all the Posey's I have had through my hands have had regular length hair.

Posey was issued a lot of times in a lot of places though. Batch variations are thus really likely.
