From the Trail of Painted Ponies Collection: "Five Card Stud"
The word "stud" inspired Gerri Mattson. As we know horse breeders are very conscious of who they use for a stud. The artist
then thought about 5-Card Stud, a gambling game. So our "stud" is two-fold: a magnificent horse and a game. The mane is five
playing cards - five cards that would make a great hand! On the pony's body all sorts of gambling games are depicted. A very
ingenious Painted Pony. The Ceramic pony is 6-1/4" high. Base is 5-1/2"L x 2-12/"W.
..This is a retired piece and priced at just $35.00 for now. Price will increase soon as these horses are becoming
very hard to find.
S&H for the pony is $12.00 US
