Here are answers to the commonly asked questions about where to resell Painted Ponies, and what their current value is:

When collectors choose to resell their Painted Ponies, we recommend doing so on eBay. There is also a Facebook group, which was set up by Painted Ponies collectors and is not monitored by The Trail of Painted Corporate Office, where you can offer your Painted Ponies for sale. Here is a link to that Facebook group:

To find the current perceived value of your Painted Ponies, we suggest searching on eBay for the same figurine with a similar edition number. If you have an eBay account, you can look up what that particular figurine has sold for recently, and that will give you an even more accurate perceived value.

I have many older and retired painted ponies. Is there a guide that can tell me their approximate value?
Response From Trailmaster:
I'm afraid there is no guide for the approximate value of retired Painted Ponies. There are too many factors that come into play. Its physical condition, edition number, how popular it was, how many were produced, does it come in its original packaging, are there others currently for sale... to name just a few.

Yes. Please go to our Official Trail of Painted Ponies Store where you will find our Mothers Day recommendations.

I purchased a figurine with the number 6E/2945 but I cannot locate it on your website. Can you tell me more about this one? Thank you.
Response From Trailmaster:
The number you reference is the edition number. There should also be the name of the Pony on the bottom of the base. You can learn more about that particular piece by tracking it through our website.
