New Finger Puppets!

Puppets on Display!
Helllllooooooo big wide world!  Yes, I realize I have been completely neglectful of my blog, I do sincerely apologize!  But I have had good reason, I promise!  Here is my alibi:
Appaloosa Finger Puppet
Roman Horse Finger Puppet

Lusitano Finger Puppet
Thoroughbred Race Horse Finger Puppet
I've been working on getting together a good selection of finger puppets, trying to make as many one-of-a-kind designs as possible.  I have blue eyed,  light grey Lusitanos, along with snowflake appaloosas, palominos, race horses, zebras, and Roman horses with felt mohawks.  Phew!  So many to keep up with!

My very first race horse finger puppet is part of a package to be donated to Shadowbrook Equine Facility's "Tribute to OTTB (Off the Track Thouroughbred)" event coming up on July 10 in Berne, New York.  The rest of the donation includes a DIY Stick Horse Set, $15 gift certificate, and some brochures to be available at the event.   Proceeds from the silent auction will go to a rescue for thoroughbred ex-racehorses to support their retraining for second careers.  It's a wonderful program, and close to my heart, because although my Thoroughbred isn't an ex racer, I certainly can imagine the amount of training and effort that goes into the process!  For more information on the event, visit their Facebook Page!
