I wish I could ride, I really like horses, just not being on them. My MIL and FIL both keep and ride horses, and so does my niece, she also does shows and thingies. I made her a hangy thing for Christmas that I tried make look like her horse, and woodburned her horse's name on it. It was my first time trying anything like that, so all things considered, I was happy with how it came out. Let me see...
Here's my little niece on her horse:
Fine, maybe she's taller than me, whatever. She's still my little niece. Here's the thingy I made, could be a lot better, but I think it could be a lot worse for a first try, too, so I'll take it. I used a scroll saw and a dremel. She puts her horse's hair in little knot things for shows, which is what I attempted to do on the thingy. It for hanging stuff on.
Nova / BFM - I didn't have any moisture issues with sand in the brooder, it was quite absorptive, clumped and scooped well. Couldn't guarantee it on a large scale without trying it out first, though.
HH- Too flippin cute!!
