Hi guys! Sorry I have not been posting lately, I have been busy making crafts for my local fair (the money I get from prizes goes towards riding lessons).
Anyways, today we are going to venture into the random tack box! *dramatic fanfare!*
The box I found at a flea market, and originally, I stored Taylor’s tack in it; but now it holds all of the random tack that no one has claimed. First, we have two saddle pads.
They were made simply from felt, but I haven’t used them a whole lot. Next we have a sling.
I made this after I watched a Schleich horse series on YouTube, and decided I had to make one.
It was basically made from felt and a bit of ribbon on the sides. Even though I don’t you it much, I still really like it because it looks really nice, and because it fits very nicely on all the horses (this picture featuring Dallas).
Also, we have a bandage/polo wrap.
This was made from the top of a old (clean) sock.
And then there are the hoof picks.
These were (sort of) from a tutorial by the lovely Nichelle.
And then the halters. Those beautiful halters.
Shasta and Nickers’
These were from a tutorial by Schleich Horse Lover 200. Although I sadly can’t find Abelard’s now, and he looked so perfect in it!
Any ways, there are also some braided lunge lines and lead ropes.
These were made from embroidery floss. I can’t say I borrowed the idea from any where, because most Schleich collectors make braided leads.
And last but not least, the jolly ball.
I love these! I have tons around the stable (okay, maybe just eight, one for each stall). They are so awesome for boredom breakers and butt scratchers (yes, Majesty, I saw you do it.) *muffled whinny*.
Anyways, I think that is all for today. Backdrop curtesy of Lucy, as Melinda made her take everything out of her room for these pictures. She did put up quite a fight though… (Muffled yelling from Lucy) I will get you Towaco! I will get you! Whatever.
(Muffled yelling from Melinda) Do not read this!
Hello, this is Carlos. You know? Carlos De Vil? Anyways, I hope you guys are ignoring Melinda and reading this. Yes I know, I look a lot like Nelson, but I’m not Nelson. Okay, maybe I am Nelson, only, Nelson is my cover name. Anyways, stay tuned all this week for awesome stuff by me and my friends.
(Muffled yelling from Taylor) NELSON!
Got to go! Don’t forget! Stay tuned for more by me and the VK’s.
