This pony statue may be small and cute, but he comes with a big price tag that’s more than you’d pay for a dozen quality horses.
Do you have an extra $133,800 to spend? If so, then we’ve found the new addition that you absolutely must have in your stable. His name is Marley the Pony. He’s 53.9 inches high, features a crazy looking mane and tail, and is completely fake.
But don’t be fooled – this pony statue by Hermes carries a price tag that’s more than you would pay for a dozen quality horses.
Marley the Pony is made of taurillon Clemence leather. He features cute ears and a round muzzle, but the rest of his body is obscured by long strips of leather fringe. And now, Marley is ready to join your family.
Don’t worry, he doesn’t eat much. Actually, he doesn’t eat at all. And you won’t have to worry about cleaning up after him.
He doesn’t require grooming, aside from a gentle untangling of his fringe and maybe an occasional treatment of saddle soap. He’s quiet, doesn’t kick, doesn’t crib, and will never throw you off.
So if you have $133,000 to spend, consider Marley. This pony statue makes the process of horse shopping a breeze. You know exactly what you’re getting, you can confidently skip the pre-purchase exam, and his age really isn’t relevant.
Breeding, registration? Not an issue. And perhaps best of all, you won’t have to worry about saddle fit, training issues, or ending up with a pony with a, well, pony temperament.
But then again, despite the challenges that go along with riding, it’s all worth it in the end, isn’t it? Horses teach us so much, and they push us to do things that we never imagined we would be able to accomplish. They’re confidence builders, sources of inspiration, and best friends. They may take a ton of work and cost a small fortune, but if you ask us, they’re worth it.
