So after some shopping on ebay and amazon, I found a nice v-shaped brow-band and some pretty crystals and brooch. The actual shopping for items took a few weeks, but putting it all together took me one afternoon.
Here it is! Max's first bling-y brow band!
And on the model himself:
I rode in it Thursday night and it held on pretty well. However after I took some pictures today, he did one huge head shake and off fell the brooch. Seeing how it's kind of large and dangly anyway I decided to take it off and just make it a plain ol sparkly brow band. Please excuse the wrinkly table-cloth!
Today we did some small jumps to get him back into things. He really loved hopping over them and running around. Then we hit the trails where he freaked out a bit, spun around and starting running back to the barn. Well I wasn't having that so we did some (very small) circles and then we marched right back to the trails and completed it. He can be such a cheeky devil sometimes!
Oh, and before I end this post, here are obligatory ribbon pictures, and a few of his pompadour resulting from his careless owner forgetting to undo his forelock braid for two days!
