These pictures are from some of the lessons Brailey had with Roshny this summer. They are fun, because you can see the improvement as they progress. We are so grateful for all we learned from her, and frankly, I am thrilled to my toes that we can mesh the dance and riding. I love full circles.

Britt decided he wanted to clean Tex's feet. Yes, the boy who "doesn't like horses." He is slowly coming to terms with the fact that maybe he does. He loved every ride he went on this summer, and even roped the dummy with Brailey a few times. There's a glimmer of a cowboy in there, whether he wants to admit it or not.

She signs them all with her initials, since they are, in fact, a work of art.
The Daisy Can is her first special order. It turned out so well! The girl told her exactly how she wanted it. It is much cuter in person, because you can see the detail on the petals. The customer loved it! It is the medium size.
From there, she made this great Tulip Can for a birthday gift for a special client's sister. This one has the tulips going all around it. It is so bright and cheery, you wouldn't believe it! This one is a large one.
And then our beloved friend and trainer, Patsy Hayes, wanted a small one with a picture of her boot and spur. Brailey painted this in a day, and I swear the boot looks just like the one Patsy sent to her. So super cute! This is a small can.
The Feather Can is my favorite so far. It is a small, and I had her make it as a gift for one of our friend's for her baby shower gift. We filled it with diapers. Her nursery colors are turquoise and red. Hopefully she will be able to use this even after the baby grows out of the nursery. So cute!
And Brailey's favorite and a design all her own she was dying to do, the Indian Headdress Can, which is turquoise and glitter. You can't see the glitter in the picture, but it is so amazing! She is selling this one. If you are interested, please let us know. It would be a darling grain bin, dirty clothes hamper, shoe storage, pet food storage, recycling bin... The possibilities are seriously endless!
