"Santa Pony" Snow Globe by Jackie Thompson - Nothing says Merry Christmas like Santa Claus, Music, Snow - and a Painted Pony dressed up to look like Old St. Nick himself.  This sparkling, new, holiday creation is exquisitely sculpted and hand-painted, and at the twist of a switch plays the melody, "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Stands 8.1" tall.

"Santa Pony" Story: Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Santa used a horse to help deliver toys to children around the world, in addition to reindeer? Would he be dressed in holiday finery? In a bright red Santa suit, with fringed leather leg wraps? Would he wear a hat just like his jolly old boss and have a bag of goodies, filled to the brim and overflowing with toys? The artist who created "Santa Pony" dreamed about just such a Pony when she was a little girl, and has created a Christmas Painted Pony as memorable as Rudolph.
