                                             "Trail of the Painted Ponies"

                                                                             "HAPPY TRAILS" 

                                                              Base No.- ** 1E/2822 ** 

1st edition B/Box Pony. Made by Westland Giftware.- 2nd "HERD" Release Summer 2003 & Retired July 2009 at 8E/7517.

By having a regular 'Retirement' program "Westland & TOPP" ensured that over time editions valued making  them a popular sort after collectible. 

*****From 2009 Westland Giftware no longer supply these "Pony" collectibles. *****

 I have classified this pony as a "USED"- 'Black box' edition with 'Black' Tag.  This is a 'Resin Pony'.

"Happy Trails" is in "Very Good Condition" condition.  Tag, styrofoam insert & packaging are all in "very good" condition. B/Box is showing 'regular storage wear'.- please see 'all photos'.

I purchased this pony from a 'deceased estate' & have had it stored for some time along with a few other 'Black box' edition ponies. I have no knowledge of its display time or if it ever was.

Artist -  "Nevena Christi"

Story behind piece- 'Happy Trails' is so much more than the wonderful song sung by Hollywood cowboy and television legend Roy Rogers in his famous Western films from the 1940s and '50s. Happy Trails is a wistful way of wishing people well as they travel life's trails. "Happy trails to you, until we meet again. Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then. Who cares about the clouds when we're together? Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather. Happy trails to you, 'til we meet again." Life is a journey, enjoy the ride with Happy Trails!

This 'Painted Pony' reflects the style and costumes worn by Gene Autry and Roy Rogers in old Hollywood westerns -- '30s and '40s cowboy retro, in other words -was the initial dream of this fine artist and former fashion designer. To give it an edge, she also wanted the horse to look like it was made of tooled leather, with a vintage saddle cinched on its back. 'Nevena' now lives in El Paso and runs Rocketbuster Boot Company, where some of the wildest cowboy boots you will ever see are handmade.!

This is a great B/Box 1st edition for any 'Trails" collector.

Items will be double-boxed & packaged for postage safety. 

"AUSTRALIA POST" does not provide a "Fragile Service". "PARCEL POST with 'Tracking & Signature" is used as it provides a 'tracking number, a signature confirmation on delivery & $100 insurance'. (Items sold above this limit, I am happy insure to the "Purchased price" at my expense)

# "SIGNATURE on DELIVERY  attracts a $2.95 charge extra on top of the 'Postage price' that 'you see' on your box & a 'Signature Required' sticker is attached to 'BUYERS PARCEL'. This charge is added & recorded when posted at the Post office- (on Seller's payment receipt only when lodged).

# After a few difficulties of "BUYERS" not making any 'contact' & not providing 'Payment' on 'Items' purchased, I have added these "Revisions" to my "Listings".
