The reason many pink and orange ponies get regrind is because the color red is the least stable. But LBS is right, it can happen to any color pony.

As far as yours goes, they look like transfer marks to me. Or maybe from ponywear.

That makes sense with the red color.
Thank you so much for your suggestion :)

regrind can happen to any color pony , it's how they mixed the vinyl pellets in the first place at the factory

But they were pink marks on a blue pony? Never saw that as regrind before

So I tried this to show a photo.
It‘s definitely not rust.

Oh and in the lot with her was a blue Tassles who also had some of these. I think the regrind thing only happens to kind of pink ponies?

That sounds like regrind to me, or the result of a child with a marker.
I use Imgur to upload my photos and copy the links, then you use the [img/]http://[/img] tool to create the images.

Galaxy‘s and Lady Flutter‘s are regrind I think. But Sweet Clover‘s is definitely different.
I will try that website and try to upload a photo tomorrow :)

The marks on Galaxy and Lady Flutter definitely sound like regrind. Sweet Clovers sounds like discoloration, if they are mainly by her hooves and ears. Have you opened her up?

Yes, these two have regrind I think. But Sweet Clover‘s looks different.
No, I haven’t open her up…wanted to avoid this as she didn’t smell moldy.
I will try to upload a photo tomorrow :)

Thank you everyone for the suggestions and tips!

She doesn’t show any signs of rust or mold and she doesn’t smell like mold or anything like that.

I would love to show photos but I still can’t figure out how  :blush:

They are spots and ligns, very uneven and on the tips of her hooves and ears. She came from a lot where some of the ponies had also spots and others didn’t. And there was a Sugarberry with the bright red hair in the lot so I first thought it was maybe from her?

Oh and I know these spots can be on pink ponies. I have neon spots on Galaxy and Lady Flutter but these look different. Sweet Clover‘s aren’t round like the spots on the other two.

Hello everyone :wave:

I got a beautiful Sweet Clover recently but she has a few pink marks on her body that didn’t come off after normal cleaning.
I read on a restauration page that these pink marks could be highlighter or also fungus! So, how is it possible to tell apart?
And any tips of getting rid of them? I don’t want to sun fade her because of her fading pink hair.

There’s a seller from Europe that’s listing shipping to the USA for one pony is $100. $100!  One pony!  And I don’t even think it’s insured.

The cheapest shipping from Germany to the US with insurance is $52.
And there are definitely countries in Europe with more expensive shipping rates (like France for example)
So it’s not that unrealistic.
From the US to Germany I have seen prices anywhere between $20 and $70

Shipping is insane!
I already spent a fortune in the last month just for shipping things from the US to me in Germany :(
And it’s not always EBay international shipping program that is the most expensive. I now bought a few things from the US and the EBay Program was less expensive than Fiirst Class Mail.
And I have to say they are pretty accommodating when there are damaging while shipping.
I am always so so happy when US sellers on eBay make up special listings for us international buyers so we can save on shipping costs.

It’s definitely not mold, it smelled like nothing  :lol: Maybe just dirt because it came off really quickly and it didn’t affect the plastic in any way.
Maybe it’s better not to think about what it could be :blink:  :lol:

Oh that’s a great site, thank you so much!

Also the idea with the nail polish is a good one! Never thought of that :)
I already opened her and the weight looks pretty good, not really rusted. But she had a lot of nasty black stuff inside so I am not sure if it was from the weight or if it was something else  :lol: On the outside she looks great!

My first ponies were all made in Italy.
I have to check my Posey, you said there are also different ones? Like different tulips? Didn’t know that!

That is interesting! I am quite sure my childhood Italian Cherries Jubilee came in the same set like Bow Tie and Applejack in the shy pose. These were my first ponies and they were bought in the same store at the same time. Does this make sense?

Hello :wave:

I am not really into adult seaponies so I don’t have an idea of how much they are worth right now.
Could anybody tell me what price Italian Seaspray with her shell (suction cup missing) and brush and comb would be fair?

Thank you :)

Also, do you keep the tail weight? Or do you take it out and replace it? With what? It’s my first time cleaning an adult seapony so any advice would be awesome :)

Hello pony peeps :hiya:
I am looking for some accessories for the Dance‘n‘Prance ponies:

Swinger‘s hair clip and earrings
Twirler‘s earrings :)

Would be happy if someone would have any for sale
Thank you!

Also backcards of any US ponies would be amazing!!

Oh that’s a good one! Curious for the answers :coffee:
Because I can’t decide between Polaris and Aurora!
I am not a fan of the Tootsie Pose so the other two don’t count for me :blush:
