Appaloosa Ponies

Original Appaloosa Pony

Original Appaloosa Pony

Months ago I made a pony using various contrasting yarns so that it had the effect of a wild pony. What kind of wild pony was it? I googled and discovered that the beautiful ponies who have large patches of bold color similar to the one I made (above) were called Appaloosa – I love that word! What a name! Since the original Appaloosa Pony I have made several that are loosely based on the idea of being bi- or tri-colored in bold patterns.

Here is my latest ‘appaloosa’ style pony knit in most green and then the addition of a fancy yarn that has the tiniest tufts of ribbon thread in various colors from blue to pink. We will keep this little one, he sings to us!
