When you were young did you ever pretend to be a horse at recess? Maybe galloping around the playground with your friends? I tried it once, but it wasn’t my thing. I was more of a swinger. My mom, however, was “king” of the horses on her playground as a child. She has always loved horses. So for her birthday this year I made her a horse terrarium. I decided to make one with a mom and a baby horse. As I prepare to be a mother myself, I am increasingly grateful for everything that she has done for me and the welcome advice that she still offers. She is a great example of what a mom should be.
For details on how to make a terrarium, see this post. To hold the horses in place, I wrapped wire around their hooves and made a little spike that could be pressed into the soil.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of horses and not think of this song. Have a listen if you feel like it!
