Do you have one of those bumper stickers or license plate frames that says, “my other car is a horse?” Horse owners and lovers are proud of our bond with horses. As a youngster, I drew horse heads on all of my notebooks and collected model horses and horse postcards. Now, I go on horseback riding vacations as often as possible to share my love of horses with kindred spirits. The folks at Grillie.com sent me one of their horse head ornaments to share with my readers.
Trucks and horse trailers
If you own a horse, there is a high likelihood that you own a horse trailer, as well as a truck to haul that horse and pull the trailer. If you want to let the world know that you own or simply like horses, why not attach an auto grill ornament to the front of your truck? Grillies are a hybrid of the hood ornaments popularized between the 1930s and 1950s.
Cast in solid metal with a protective Pewter finish, there are several Grillies that celebrate the horse lover, horse race enthusiast, equestrian or cowboy.
Horse head mailbox ornament
For those of us who ride motorcycles or have spouses who do not believe in grill or hood ornaments or bumper stickers on vehicles, I found a new use for the horse themed ornament. My metal horse head spruces up my mailbox and was very easy to attach.
Where to Buy:
The horse themed ornaments retail for $49.99 each.
