Last week I posted a “whazzit” that I had found and asked for your help to identify it. Trivia extraordinaire, Ames of Girl Raised in the South, and others informed me that it was a metal comb used to groom horses.
Since I don’t have a horse, I decided to re-purpose it…..and I had an idea but I needed a magnet …..preferably one with a horse on it. Earlier that day I had seen a horse head pin that would be perfect. I knew I could make a magnet from it, but where had I seen it? Mom and I had been to several yard sales that morning and I had been blog-hopping before that, but I couldn’t remember exactly where I had seen it.
Later that day…..blogging again, I revisited Renee of Where the Grass is Greener. She was having a sale at her Etsy shop, Country Tag Sale, so I took a look through the items and….you guessed it…..there was the horse’s head pin. I ordered it immediately and here it is.
I attached a magnet to the pin and in combination with the grooming comb, I have the perfect way to Hold My Horses!!!

for identifying my whazzit and Renee for having just the right item to complete my crazy repurposing idea. Ames,
