Roundapony?

It's been a long time since I've allowed myself to devote an entire studio day to customizing, but that rough Roundie was just too tempting to ignore.  I've spent a happy afternoon sanding seams and filling holes.  He looks and stands much better now, and I'm relatively certain I could have him fully prepped by the end of the week.
However, a thought occurred to me while I was prepping him, and now I can't seem to let it go.  You see, I don't really collect classic sized models.  For various reasons, I was willing to make an exception for Roundie, but maybe I don't have to.  After all, he is just the right size for my pony rider doll...
What if Roundabout turned into Roundapony?  
Ok, I know my photoshopping skills are not the best and the mane should probably go on the other side.  Those things aside, what do you think?  Would this work?

  1. Oh, yes! I second some other model horse people out there. He just doesn't appeal to me.

    He looks better with a mane, forelock, and improved tail. The feathers would add just the right touch to the model. Excellent!

  3. I agree, he could be a cute, round pony with wafting forelock, mane and tail! I can imagine that he'll look perfect with your young rider girl and your smart tack! Best wishes, Doreen from Germany
