Horsing around: home-made stable for an AG horse

American Girl Doll Horse with hand-made wooden stable

Look what Grandpa made for my very lucky daughter and her new American Girl horse! We just love this beautiful wooden stable, complete with some hand-sewn accessories from Granny, including a horse blanket, straw bale and feed sacks.

Hand-sewn accessories: horse blanket, bales and feed sacks

I would highly recommend the American Girl horse; her coat and hair and so soft and just gorgeous to brush and the tail just had to be plaited immediately. The saddle and bridle are easy and fun to put on and take off too. My daughter did persuade me to make one adjustment, which was to trim the fringe of Coco and she is now known, so she could see better. I am resisting the pleas to add furniture sliders to the hooves so she can be dragged around more easily!

The doll featured is AG’s lovely Maryellen with a My London Girl riding helmet. We are feeling very lucky and very happy – definitely  one for the happiness jar!
