The Cow Pony




The Cow Pony Detail


Dancer started out as my trail horse in 1991. He was like riding a rocking horse and he had the best personality. He eventually became my husband's #1 roping horse, and what a time they had together. I have videos of the two of them in the arena roping horns and feet. Dancer earned the name Cow Pony because he loved cattle so much. When he wasn't in the roping arena, you could find him out in the pasture surrounded by a herd of yearling cattle. This is known as being "cowy."

I have always believed in the healing benefits of creating art.
Working on this Cow Pony Quilt helped me through a difficult time in my life, and in the end healed me of my grief over the loss of Dancer.

Gorgeous quilt.

What a great quilt. Sorry for your loss but I'm glad the quilt helped get you through. My Dad raises arabians and was a champion team penner so I totally understand. My Mom loves sunflower quilts so you'd totally fit in with us.
