Yeah, it's definitely a US card, you can see that the artwork is US. I guess it might have had an import release somewhere else but in Europe at least they tend to be translated when it's the US artwork? It's the UK art that appears in Scandinavia without translation. xD.

And yeah, that was why I first mentioned the longer hair thing, only that picture on my site is tiny (><). I don't have a MOC Posey of any kind so I went looking for a bigger one. I guess it proves that it's across borders though...that card would also be 1985 not 1986..?

Now I have my eye in I can clearly see the long hair vs. regular hair!

I had a look in my files and found I had saved this image from an eBay auction in 2009, I don't remember anything else about the auction, but it must have been UK eBay.

And so I'm back!
I got delayed and then the Arena broke down and I couldn't post any pictures but here we go.
Compared to two different Trickles (because one is never enough) and a very light Posey. I have plenty of Poseys too if we need more of those.

The "regular" Trickles I am using here doesn't have as red symbols as the one used in the previous photos.

As for the eyes they're like a mix between Posey, Trickle and Spanish Trickle but definitely not close to Snowdrop.

Sorry for the blurry pic- I couldn't get the camera to focus where I wanted it to.
The tailwasher was really stuck in place (as with regular ponies) and I had to push and squeese and use pliers to have it let go of her bum xD Tail color is pretty solid though.

The last strands of hair in here are white. But the rest is pink ( or salmon or whatever we are calling her hair color) inside her head.

OH, right, and about the comments on the hair.

I am not the hair wizard, my friend Brittany is.
She can literally turn frizzy pony-fro into silk.

Those are great pictures!

She looks nothing like Snowdrop at all, so we can rule a head swap out with her :bigups:

The hair last white plug at the bottom of the mane is weird!

Have you tried matching the hair colour of her hair with any other ponies in your collection? You may have already tried this (I am sure you would have)

I have a friend who is a hair wizard as well :lol:

Can she be white hair Posey's head and tail and they been repinked? Otherwise it would be odd to be white inside head not outside.

You can see the white hair inside and outside of the head. There's a thin piece of white at the very bottom, near the neck.

From the pictures it does appear like white is either intermixed with the pink, or some other weirdness. The color doesn't appear uniform.

Is it possible that someone just grabbed a yellow pony in the same pose and gave it fading pink hair, then put it in a Posey package?

And somehow when it became faded someone repinked it?

Thank you for adding so many pics!

I still err on the side that she's been repinked, because of the single white area and the unevenness, like it sounds as though it hasn't taken properly? I've also seen people repink to that shade before, though it's not an absolute answer. In any way, I still feel that is likely. The pink rim inside the head also feeds into that probability, and it still looks like a Posey head to me, and a head/body mismatch suggesting a headswap.

We're talking about Posey head and tail if dying is what happened.

The unevenness of the hair colour could also have been contributed to by washing and styling if the hair colour isn't original.

Symbols can vary and so can the tone of the body between batches, so that doesn't answer the question one way or another. I think it's known that the 2nd set of rainbow ponies had at least 2 batches, as one set discolours quite easily with age and the other is more robust.

It probably is real pony hair and originally rooted, I am just not persuaded that it's originally that shade and that this isn't some kind of hybrid someone has created for whatever reason.

It doesn't sound like the neck was sealed when the pony was acquired either though I didn't see whether that was confirmed or not (sorry if I missed it, I just went through to check but didn't see it).

So my vote is still with custom. For whatever reasons.

She's still pretty though.

I also think she's been repinked.  I think someone creatively swapped the head and tail of a faded-to-white Posey onto Trickles and repinked the hair.  That would be a classic "early custom" move because originally not many people knew how to reroot hair.

Edit:  Also looks like her eye has been painted?  Not the whole thing, but the iris (colored part) and part of the white portion on at least one eye?

You can see it best in this pic:

Which could point to this previously being a bait-box pony who was given new life.

Totally off topic! But actually, the US cards weren’t translated in Scandinavia either, or not in Norway at least. I couldn’t say for sure about Sweden/Denmark;)

Exciting reading about Trickles! I wouldn’t know either way- but it is always interesting following these posts!
