Posted by Summer on September 8, 2014

   I just returned from a weekend trip to tour a potential 2015 Fair site. I was very impressed by both the location, amenities offered, and the friendliness and excitement of the staff about the possibility of hosting our event. I put in a call earlier this morning to the local business licensing office to get the details for their licensing process. After the hoops I had to jump through last year in Franklin, Tennessee, I want to be sure that the process is straightforward. The run around that I had to deal with last year was exhausting.

For those who may be anxiously awaiting the location announcement, here is a hint:


Anyway, I'm very excited about this location and I really hope that it works out on all fronts. Mary and I had some terrific meals and some great buys from our impromptu shopping trip to the local outlet mall. Overall, I think our visit was a success! The Fair has grown so much in the past few years and it requires me to start planning for the next year earlier and earlier. While I love having a break to sit back relax, and reflect on what can make the next event even better, it is nice to hit the ground running and get things organized early instead of rushing around.

Here's to successful 2015 Pony Fair planning!

Posted by Summer on August 20, 2014


One of the perks of running the Fair is the ability to be able to have lots of Pony conversations with the Guests of Honor. It is crazy the little tidbits about Pony that both Bonnie Zacherle and Liz Knight have shared during our conversations. One such fact was why the G1s have tail washers.


 According to Liz (and Bonnie confirmed this), when they first made the original 6 Ponies(Cotton Candy, Minty, etc.) they noticed that they kept falling over on their faces because their heads were too heavy and the Ponies weren't balanced. To solve this issue, someone in the office suggested putting a weight on the inside of the pony near the Pony's back legs so it would stand upright without falling on its nose. The end solution was the tail washer, which was also incorporated into how the hair was installed to make it appear fuller (so the tail washer ended up pulling double duty of the first six ponies!)
I thought this was a pretty neat little Pony fact. :)
* I found this photo that illustrated perfectly what a tail washer is and its location in a pony on Sail-Away's Harbor. There was also a step by step tutorial for removing a pony's head and tail, but thankfully not how to dissect a Pony into halves. :)
