Child's Jumping Pony

Rio Taió Calavera Catrina

Calavera is a flea-bitten grey Child's Jumping Pony from some time in the early 2000s. She was an anniversary present from my husband; our anniversary is Oct. 31st and since she arrived on Nov. 1st, I decided she needed a Día de Muertos name. Being an elegant, mostly white mare, what better than to name her after the beautiful icon of the Day of the Dead?

I rehaired her from nylon to mohair and added rosebud decorations.

She was likely made sometime around 2008.

When I first started collecting Julips I decided the CJP would make a wonderful Black Beauty's Ginger, and I think I was right.

Spirit is a special order from 2017 with a wired neck, which allows her head to turn a bit.

I picked her and the rest of my Black Beauty set up at Lake District Live, where she won the colour championship and reserve overall champion.

I lost out on Queen Mab's ebay auction a year or so ago, so I was delighted to see her come up for sale again recently.

She and her foal have been rehaird from nylon to mohair by their previous owner.

They were both a special order from sometime between 2007-2009.

At Lake District Live 2019, I picked out a bay dun Cob Mare and a dropped head bay pinto New Forest.

A little later I noticed a black CJP among the unpurchased spares which I had somehow missed in the spares frenzy.

I actually liked her more than the pinto New Forest, so Miss Laura was kind enough to let me swap, and made me take a bunny to make up the difference in price.
