Happy Horse Christmas

This is the story of a horse that was handmade 25 years ago as a special gift to me from my dear father-in-law.
This sweet little horse was starting to show his age and desired a new look.
After cleaning him up and giving him a new mane and tail, he's now happy and ready to go.

He' making the trip to PA to wish my granddaughter a Happy Horse Christmas.
My father-in-law is now 89 years young and is thrilled that his horse will be passed down to his great granddaughter. It's definitely a Happy Horse Christmas for us all!

Awwww, such a cute horse! I love that you are passing it down through the family. I love that sort of thing (as you probably could tell by my Hoosier cabinet post haha). I'm sure it will continue to be passed down for many years to come!

Oh Cindy, she is going to love it! What a precious handmade heirloom. I love the new mane and tail. So happy that it has stayed in the family. My FIL made a little cupboard for our oldest when she was 5. Her daughter used it. She is now 12 and the only child. They are saving it for her daughter someday. Thanks for sharing your tale of the "Happy Horse Christmas" with Share Your Cup.
