I made this Paint Horse Pillow pillow last winter and blogged about it.
One of the things I adore about blogging is the people I have met. The friends I’ve made.
My friend Suzanne of Fairchild Farmgirl is an artist, mom to 8, wife to Big D, and surrogate mother to untold number of cattle, ducks, lambs, grape vines, the list goes on. She asked me if she could paint a picture of my horse in trade for this pillow for her daughter’s birthday. Well the answer was not yes, it was Heck Yes!
Here it is, and I must tell everyone that I absolutely love it! When I unwrapped the package I was so moved that I was speechless. It looks just like him! She captured his expression perfectly. She is so talented and creative. It’s a real ostrich egg. And the stand is a piece of burl wood that she found and polished.
I’ve been meaning to ask her if they raise ostriches too? It wouldn’t surprise me.
Where does one get an ostrich egg?
Isn’t Suzanne something?
How did she think this up? How did she learn how to do this?
I think she was born knowing.
I have it in my living room. I will treasure this forever.
Like I treasure him.
Thank you Suzanne !
Love, Cowgirl Red aka Terah
P.S. Gracie got the Paint Horse Pillow for her birthday. She called me on the phone to tell me how much she loved it. And she told me all about her own Paint Horse. I love blogging. I’m grateful for what blogging has brought into my life.
