Request of the Week - Horse with Christmas Wreath

Diane P. from Alabama noticed that horses weren't getting equal billing as a Christmas animal, so
she requested a horse with a wreath around his neck. Great idea, Diane! Horses are the animals
that not only dash through the snow, but diligently pull the sleigh over river and through the woods
to Grandmother's house at Christmas time. 

In order to make this horse particularly festive for the season, he's decked out in a wreath around
his neck and his feet, too. A perfect addition to quilts, denim shirts, towels, and more. Thank you
for your fantastic suggestion, Diane!
 

Available in two sizes:
4.84"X5.12" and 3.63"X3.85"
