Heather the Pony

 I am so excited to post this... I wish I could remember where I got the pattern, but I started it so long ago I have since lost the pattern. This is not a work in progress, but it too me soooo long to finish it I thought I should post it today!

    Here is the story...

   When I married Mike and his (then) 4yr old, Raegan,  in 2008 I knew I wanted to make her something special. She loves horses... I mean LOVES! So this was a perfect project to do. Like I said I started crocheting it in 2008 and at the time I didn't know much about crochet and didn't really know the difference in a slip stitch and a single crochet, so the whole horse is done in slip stitches. Looking back, I don't know what I was thinking... and needless to say, it took forever. After finishing over half of the horse and realizing I was doing to wrong stitch I got discouraged and mad at myself, so consequently I put it down and didn't work on it for a long while. I stopped and started this project easily a dozen times. As Christmas rolled around last year I decided once and for all I would finish this frustrating horse. I worked like crazy to finish it in time and I love the outcome, so did Raegan!

   Last night my sister and I had a pony photo shoot and I love how some of the pics turned out so much like Glamour Shots!!!

    I love how she tells a story with her eyes thru the next few pictures!


    I loved how her hair and bow turned out, she looks so dainty!

     Oh this is one of my Favorites!! So dramatic!

    I have to post this picture again because I love it so much!
