a goat bell for a horse

When I was out shopping last week, I found a little goat bell.  It was inexpensive, I think $4.00, so I picked it up.  I initially envisioned using it as a Christmas decoration, with some evergreens, etc., making it into a small wreath.

The leather was really dry, but a little Hemp Oil hydrated it and made it pliable again.

As soon as I finished photographing the bell, a thought hit me…  I bet this would fit on my rocking horse!  How cute would that be?

And sure enough, it’s a perfect fit.

I will add some live greens to make it a bit more festive for Christmas, but I love it as it is, too.

Some things are just meant to be…
