A fabulously fun gift for child and adult alike, Minnesota-based Houndstooth Design creatively repurposes old Breyer models in poor condition into beautiful chalk board horses.
For each horse, Houndstooth curries out the rough seams with sandpaper, conditions the coat with primer, and then applies a finishing layer of chalkboard paint. Each horse comes with three pieces of chalk and is ready to be decorated by its new owner. A simple wipe down with a damp cloth is the only grooming needed to create a blank slate for each new design.
The horses come in a variety of breeds and poses and all look darling decorated with whimsical tack, lists and reminders, or good wishes. We think several grouped together and adorned with a favorite quote would make a great art installation in the equestrian home.
Please don’t buy them all before we have the chance to get one!
