    Hand-hewn pegs and made from trees we recently cleared to make room for a horse barn. Here's a close-up of the Sebright, Annabeth, enjoying the new perch:

    Now, if I knew for certain that my husband could hand hew something, without hewing his hand, I would show him this. But, he may get ideas.
    It is really pretty. He is artistic! [​IMG]
    and Annabeth looks like she is appreciating it, exactly in the manner in which it was intended to be appreciated.

    No patent - I'm sure he would love to have a knock-off of it in New Zealand!
