This is Porthos. Porthos is a flashy Lippizaner colt with spunk to spare! All Lippizan horses are born dark brown or black, and then fade to grey, and finally white as they age (sorry, this particular pony will not turn white the longer you have him ;) ) That's why Porthos is still so dark - he's not done growing yet! But he's ready to start his training in his new forever home. His reins are black ribbon, his ears are made from high quality black leather, and his mane is made from extra-thick black and grey yarn . His beautiful face is accented with a white exclamation point, as if punctuating his bold personality. The stick is painted grey with coordinating bold dapples. As with all other horse designs, all of Porthos's markings and features are hand painted, without the use of stencils or templates.

**Please note: Listing is for actual item shown, as is. All horses are one of a kind and this specific horse will never be created again. If you would like a custom order or variation of this horse, please convo me!**

Porthos was made from start to finish by Maine artist Emmaline Sullivan, from local materials. The head was cut from a solid piece of clear Eastern White Pine, selectively harvested using sustainable forestry methods. His face was carefully hand painted, then finished with a water-based sealant to protect from whatever adventures are to come. Porthos measures about 36" from forehead to the end of his Poplar dowel body.

These stick horses are especially rugged, and made to be loved for generations. The heads are made from high quality wood and measure an 1 3/4" thick - extra sturdy and ready for outside play. The ears are a high quality leather, sourced from a company in Maine, and nailed firmly to the wood for extra security. The dowels are a sturdy 1" thick, safe for rough riding and real imaginative play!

All hobby horses are signed (woodburned) by the artist. Custom orders available!

* Recommended for children three and up, because of reins and other various accessories.
