Years ago, I painted a folksy version on my then dog on a crock. After that, my sister had me paint her pets on crocks too (Dauer was half mine and quite a dog!).
The only animal I had yet to immortalize was her horse. It took me over a year to find a crock-- got this one at a thrift store. Guess I should have ordered some cheese spread myself! Anyway, I finally painted a certain bay Quarter Horse late last year.
