This is a story about a pony. Well, it’s a story about a mural with a pony.

I was walking by this hair salon called “The Proudest Pony” @proudestpony I noticed a woman working on a wall. This is her – KitKat

A week later and there is that pony again. But no KitKat !

Then, I talked with KitKat some more and got her to pose – she kindly obliged.
And she posted on her Instagram that very same day:
“re-mane ✨ WIP. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed working on a project more than this. Forever grateful for the opportunity ✨”

About a week after that.. she was still working away and we chatted some more.
5) June 11, 2018 – 8:11 pm
I found out later that she was working on this mural after work. Which, it why I would always see her in the late afternoon ! Ah ha !

She kept adding details every time I would pass by.. sometimes I would see her.. sometimes I wouldn’t.

I felt bad taking so much of her time.. but she always managed a smile.

I thought it was complete but she was still adding more details to the background.
9) July 15, 2018 – 5:41 pm
Then, I think this was the last time I saw her on what I remember was a very warm day. Sometimes, when I would walk by here there would be a small audience watching her painting.

Interestingly, later in August I was walking on the other side of the street; I saw this woman posing in front of this mural. I am guessing that was her Instagram husband.
January – 20
Then on KitKat’s Instagram she posted:
“So. I have no idea why I haven’t posted this yet. I finished it during the summer and I couldn’t be more grateful for having had the opportunity. Every second I stood in the sun to chip away at it and chat with passerby’s was an absolute pure joy. Proudest pony. ”
March – 4
Then on my Instagram I posted
So, I have no idea why I haven’t post this yet ! It was great talking to Kitkat and watching this mural progress ! Thanks for brightening up the neighbourhood with your “Proudest Pony” !
