Announcement    Welcome to the home of the original hand painted stick horse here on Etsy!

I have done a bit of redesigning to my horses, and they are even more real looking than before! I have been taking pics as I go, so please bear with me...the horse you see in the picture may or may not be the new design with sculptured nostrils, a defined mouth, and real looking eyes. The horses that are featured in the top row of the store are the new design.

ATTN: My horses come standard WITHOUT a stick..the stick is a long fragile item, and the postal service and other carriers have made it their mission to break them as often as they can, which means more hassles for both you and I. I now just sell you the head, and give you these instructions: the stick is a simple 1/2 dowel rod that you can purchase at any hardware or craft store, and paint it with water based acrylic paint, if you want to. Then you just glue it in with white school glue. Easy enough to do,and honestly, it's less expensive than buying one from me. :)

When I was young, my wish was to have a horse of my own. I lived and breathed horses. I drew them constantly, and even had my own made up ranch in a notebook complete with pictures of all the horses who lived in it.
My father said when I was sixteen, I would want a driver's license. I wanted a horse.
Although I never got one, my love for the animal has never been stronger.
I have found a way to satisfy my want for them. Creating these beautiful horses brings back fond memories of my childhood, and I get to have as many of them as I want!

Modeled after the beautiful Arabian breed, these stick horses are truly unique. They are cut from hard pressed particle board, and sanded smooth. They are painted with acrylic paints, and sealed with Krylon sealer. Their manes are made of high quality Kanekalon hair, rooted firmly and guaranteed never to shed. Each horse stands approximately 4 feet tall. Reins are optional.

As all of the horses are hand painted, no two are ever the same. It will take approximately 7 days (sometimes less, depending on the work load) for your horse to be customized. You can choose a horse from the gallery, or feel free to come up with your own color combination.

Children of all ages, and adults, too, are welcome to fall in love with one of my horses, however, I will say that it's probably not best to give one to a toddler. Being on a stick, the head is top heavy, and after crashing to the ground several times...your horse will have some damage to his nose.

Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ:
Q: If I purchase a whole bunch, do I get a discount?
A: Unfortunately, no. The same amount of creativity still goes into each horse, and it is more difficult to package up twelve horses than one.

Q: Can I have it shipped with just the head, and no stick?
A: Yes. My horses come standard as just the head....you can purchase your own stick, or buy one in my shop.

Q: Can I choose a color I don't see in your gallery?
A: Feel free to make any color combination you would like, as long as they are colors you see in the pictures. The artist is open to any suggestions you might have.

Q: Can you tell me how you make the horses?
A: The artist went through a lot of trial and error to get to the finished product. It would not be fair to give away secrets....

Q: Can I have it made bigger, as in adult size?
A: Yes, however when it is made in a much bigger size, the material it is made of must change, or it would be way too heavy. Adult size horses are made of heavy duty styrofoam and look just like the small ones. Only the price changes.

Q: I need 20 horses in less than a week. Is this possible?
A: Maybe, but there can be no guarantee. There is shipping time to consider, and as these are a custom item, it takes some time to complete them. The artist has blanks on hand. When an order comes in, the artist can then finish the painting and add the mane and ears.

Q: Can you make a custom painted horse from a picture?
A: Absolutely. Just email the picture.

Q: Do you offer wholesale pricing?
A: The horses are each handcrafted by one artist, and are already reasonably priced. No wholesale prices are available.
