Stick Horses


For National Adoption Day, Darling and I made some simple felt stick horses. The pom poms beneath the googly eyes and pipe cleaner manes were Darling's idea. I was going to use wool from the sheep for manes, but the pipe cleaners turned out just too adorable. I think I'll use them as a fund raiser for Mustang U. Not sure, though...should we raffle them off? Or do a sealed bid auction?

There are a couple of finishing touches that need to go on them, though. We need to put 'freeze' brands on their necks, and big ribbons on them, too, don't you think?

I need to bring one to the post office to see how much shipping would be. Wonder if there's a hitching post for me to tie one up at?

Tracey, too darned cute! Yes, I agree with everyone else the freeze brand is a must for them to be true mustangs! Good luck, hope they bring lots of money for the wild horses.
