Well, I guess if you....

.... can't afford a real one:



  1. Really cool. We would have loved to gave one of those as kids to go with our cap guns.

  2. My Mom used to make 'stick horses' from an old broom handle and a sock with button eyes for the head... :o)

  3. We had stick horse brooms & mops...this would have been awesome!!

  4. Yes, I had stick broom horses too - her little 'bissel' carpet sweeper had a black handle that would screw out from the sweeper. That was Black Beauty to me! I look back to those years and loved the child's imagination I had! I never had my own personal horse, but I grew up as immersed in horses as I could be - I was what is now called a 'hot walker', for an Arab farm near me. Oh! I did it for free, in fact, I could ride 1 hour for every 2 hours I spent helping in the stable.

    Oops. Gone on too long, but what a neat-o memory! Haven't ridden since I was 42 and now at 67, a bit too old to bounce!
