Trail of Painted Ponies "Gingerbread Pony" 1E/1,616 & 2E/3074
Pony Story: Come Christmas in artist Lynn Bean's home, baking gingerbread cookies was a cherished tradition. "As my mother rolled out the dough, my sister and I would press the cookie cutter designs of stars, bells, animals and people. The yummy smell of gingerbread baking would fill the kitchen. After the cookies cooled we would add frosting and decorations. Then we would eat the rejects, making enough to take to Grandma's house or for friends at school." With these magical memories in mind, Lynn designed a Pony of frosted cookies and candies, complete with a Christmas country scene of an old barn and a gingerbread family leading a pony among the trees and bells of the holiday.
