Horsin' Around



Seeing as how we live in Chester County PA, where our equine friends reign (rein--pun), it is right and proper that we have a room devoted to the species. In our case, it's the den and the accompanying powder room.

Both are filled with trophies, paintings, prints and accessories of equus origin. Over the years I have pulled waaay back on the horsey paraphanalia (ditched the saddles, for example) but am still comforted by the faint leather aroma from the old Chesterfield sofa and the other items.

Sir Fox was picked up at a horse show in the mid-90s. Think you can find similar ones online.

Cheers!
