Apple Bloom

Apple Bloom knows a lot of tricks despite not having her cutie mark yet and she surely doesn't need the help of the cutie pox just to be good with a loop-de-hoop. Although her highly developed tail dexterity probably rubs off from her big sister, Applejack who in turn is phenomenal with a lasso.
The figure is carved out of Philippine mahogany while the gears are made from Narra hardwood. The loop-de-hoop is made from hand beaten copper. It is painted in enamel and protected by clear lacquer. Apple Bloom stands at 4 1/8" while the whole piece measures 6 3/8" high, 2 1/4" wide and 4 3/4" long. She is one part (of three) of my CMC automaton series which altogether took 116 hours to make.

Wish I was, but sending the pieces alone was costly enough for me.

I was thinking about it but thought otherwise as she mentioned she plays with a loop-de-hoop even before that episode happened.

This is so cool. I still don't understand how the loop de hoop works, probably by voodoo magic, but it's still awesome.

I had to watch the video intensely for about 50 seconds before I understood how the heck you made that loopty hoop go around.
Bravo, my friend. Bravo.
