 First Edition Collectible: Trail of Painted Ponies~TWILIGHT HUNTERS

This very cool pony "Twilight Hunters" 1E 3827 (First Edition) from the 2008 Herd of the Trail of Painted Ponies.

Note: This special pony is made by the original maker "Westland" and not from the newer maker producing it now. This unusual pony is brand new and in mint condition in the original box.

By Creator Lori Musil: It's a crisp, icy evening and there's a scent on the wind. The cold silence is split by a piercing chorus of howl, followed by the shuffle of padded feet crunching through the snow. The pack picks up the pace. Their breath makes small clouds. The twilight hunters are prowling for prey in the last light of day. With this scene in her mind, this New Mexico western and wildlife painter has created a contemporary tribute to the wild wolves of the West.

 First Edition Collectible: Trail of Painted Ponies~~STARDUST

This wonderful pony "Stardust" 1E 4490...(First Edition) from the 2007 Herd of the Trail of Painted Ponies. Note: This Stardust Pony is made by the original maker "Westland" and not from the newer maker producing it now.

This lovely pony is brand new and in mint condition in the original box. The creator of this pony Janee Hughes, an artist and writer from the Pacific Northwest as gifted with a pen as with a brush, writes: "From stardust we have come, and to stardust we shall return. Between times, many have gazed in wonder at the night sky and thought they’ve seen figures in the arrangement of stars and galaxies. In centuries past, fertile imaginations have even gone so far as to conjure gods and heroes and tell their stories in terms of myths. Many involve the horse, our respected companion on earth, our friend in the heavens….” Janee Hughes is a former art teacher and award-winning painter who also writes and illustrates children's books and stories. She spent four years painting hand-carved wooden horses for Salem, Oregon's Riverfront Carousel. She has owned horses for many years and understands how they act and move, and how they show their feelings - which is why more of Janee Hughes' designs have been crafted into figurines than any other artist. The base of the horse is 7 1/4" long from front to back and the figurine is 6 1/4" tall. I removed it from the packaging only to photograph. This would make a very nice gift item for any horse lover or welcome addition to your own collection.

Set of Diana Tuorto's horse novels for children, each told from a different horse's point of view.

The Set Includes:
 Spirit of the Saluda River (for ages 6-8+) is the story of Spirit, a blind 20+ year-old Shetland pony rescued from an island in South Carolina's Saluda River. Despite a difficult past and obstacles in his recovery, Spirit goes on to become an inspiration, particularly to deaf and blind children. Based on the true story of an incredible pony rehabilitated by Palmetto Equine Awareness & Rescue League (P.E.A.R.L.). Offered in paperback, this book is illustrated by 13 year-old artist Emmi Gordon.

My Desert Sun (for ages 8-14+) is the story of Cayuse, a young, free-spirited mustang who lives in the desert and mountains of the American Southwest. While life in the desert is often peaceful and serene, Cayuse spends many days merely fighting for survival. However, he soon learns that survival among mankind is much more difficult.

Janie's New Legs (for ages 8-14+) is the heartwarming story of Silver, a shy pony, rescued from abuse and neglect, and Janie, a fragile young girl, paralyzed from a car accident. Janie meets Silver at a handicapped riding facility, where she goes to escape the constant confinement of her wheelchair. An extraordinary friendship soon develops and the two gradually begin the road to healing and recovery together.

Luck of the Draw (for ages 8-14+) is the story of Lucky, one of the slowest racehorses the world has ever known. Even though Lucky gives racing his all, he never manages to win a race, and soon finds himself working as a jumper and dressage horse. No matter how hard he tries, Lucky seems to fail at all disciplines, but remains hopeful that he will find his purpose.

 Each book has been autographed by the author with a special message to HRU supporters.

The entire set normally retails for $40.
