Meet Mystical. I made him for a sweet little girl who has just discovered horses. She’s been riding a broom around her yard, seeking adventure, and I thought it was time to take her interest up a cavaletti or two. And so, Mystical was born!
He is the hobby horse I would have wanted as a child – except mine would have been jet black. In making him, I was transported back to younger days. He’s a far cry from the sticks adorned with binder twine manes and tails that my sisters and I used to make. But those stick horses were an expression of our deepest passion, and we road them day and night until we got horses of our own.
I hope Mystical inspires a lifetime of horse fever in the heart of this sweet little girl. I hope someday we can ride together. Until then, may Mystical carry her safely on all kinds of fantastical adventures!
Happy Birthday, Darcy!
