My son has a rodeo day coming up at school and part of his "homework" for kindergarten is to make a stick hobby horse and dress up as a cowboy for the day festivities! Now I could make a simple horse with a yardstick and a cutout head from paper, but I wanted something that he could play with for more than just one day! I kept seeing all these "sock" horses on line doing my research as to what I could make for him and that sparked the idea of using the burlap stocking I had in my stash for the past 3 years!! To me burlap and cowboys are a perfect match!!
