As soon as I saw this sweet little image at my local scrapbook store, I just had to have it. When my girls were youngsters, My Dad, my sister, and my two girls would go out on horseback into the woods, to get a Christmas tree. The dogs went along too, and Dad would bring a section of rope and tarp and drag the tree home.
My Dad was always great at making something out of nothing...I am sure he just sort of routed round in his garage and found some twine and something to make the "tree sled" from and off they would go. The girls were always excited to be included. Dad always got a couple extra trees...one for their house, one for my house, and one for anyone who came by and needed a tree!!! He would always stick the extra tree into the snow bank alongside the driveway in the front garden.
So you have to imagine the horses. They are standing off to the side...just off the edge of the card. Two are ponies of course! Now you know my Christmas tree tradition, you will understand that my grandaughter, Pony Girl 06, comes by her name honestly! I would like to try this image again as a step card, and then perhaps I can fit a pony or two on it!
