Breyer Halloween Horse Jack O' Lanterns!

For the last couple of years, I've posted photos of our annual Breyer Halloween Horse Jack O' Lantern.  This year, I thought it would be fun to look back over the ones I've done.  Enjoy! This is the guy that kicked it all off.  I made it several years after he was released, but fittingly, the first Halloween Horse was my first Halloween Horse pumpkin.  Still one of my favorites!

Horse Music

I was recently thinking about the background music in our store.  Specifically, I wanted to get rid of the radio, which has poor reception due to our being in a hollow between mountains.  If I'm going to upgrade our music, it ought to be themed, right?  So I set out to build a playlist of horse-themed songs. There were several lists online of songs "containing the word horse."  However, most of them included sad songs, like "Yellow Stud," where the bucking horse dies to insure he never gets ridden.  Not the kind of music we want to play in our...
