Nuts

Eight days ago, the Chronicle of the Horse published a story about equine jock straps.

Long used by harness racers, this specialty tack item has now found its way into the international jumper ring thanks to Katharina Offel's mount, Quebracho Semilly.

For reasons I will never understand, certain people in the model horse hobby saw this article and thought of me.
At first it was kind of funny...  
but it quickly became annoying.
By the time I went to bed, I was hoping to never hear the words "equine jock strap" again.
Then I woke up the next morning and decided I had to make an equine jock strap.
Sometimes it's like that. 
Behold:  the world's first 1:9 scale equine jock strap.. 
I know you're probably wishing this baby belonged to you, but sorry.  It's now property of Erin Corbett.  Merry Christmas, Erin!  I expect to see that in the ring at Breyerfest Live!

  8. If it makes you feel any better, a bunch of people on Blab were saying Char should make one. :)

    You did a gòd job on it and I'm so glad I'm not a show jumping stallion. Yikes!
