All these are pretty much going to the same family. Maybe not the same home, but it started out with my horse died and he needed a cross. The horse had been in the family long enough to raise all this mans children. So I made a cross for the horse Cowboy’s Luck. I also found a simple picture of a horse head and put it on the top. Then he calls and says that while I was at it he needed one for a dog that had died earlier. So The cross Shadow was made. Ends up he took the cross, Cowboy’s Luck, to show his son, since it was actually his horse, who lives in another state. So after that I get another call that the sons dog died and he needed a cross too, Elway. He liked the horse head on the top, so he asked me if I could do a lab dog. I asked what color the lab was and found a pattern that I thought would look good.
Elway is the cross I just finished. I made the lab raised out of the top and then glued it so it would stay. The horse was just cut out. All three are done with cedar fencing pickets. I thought they would withstand the weather better. I then put a product I had been reading about on all three as well called Penofin. Its suppose to be great stuff for projects that are in the weather and UV protected too. I also reinforced the backs with basically another cross to to make doubly sure they would last for awhile.
I enjoyed doing something for someone that had meaning to them.
Thanks for looking.
