$100 & $10 S&HI'll admit to being a bit of a spoilsport about stuff like this, but even though I desperately wanted to go for a carriage ride in Central Park, I insisted on picking a driver who was kind to his horse. You see them shoving and yanking the horses into a parking line - never patting them, never talking to them, never making eye contact. Yeah, that's right, I said eye contact. Ever since I was a child I sort of blurred the lines between people and animals - and the term 'beasts of burden' just makes me cringe. I see that we need animals to help us with things - but it doesn't kill us to be kind or grateful that their lives are subject to our will. OoooooooK! Getting off the soap box!
I loved the design of this, and the straps were something I didn't notice until I started painting. I actually eliminated a couple of straps and checks - really - do we need to tie their heads in 5 ways? But this is Maggie, and her driver was caring and kind to her. Just why there was this pouffy thing on her head I don't know, but it did catch your eyes!Pin It
