Well it’s that time of year again when we can start horsing around at halloween and dressing up everything and everyone around us. So to really get you in the mood I did a round up of some of my favourite horsey halloween pictures, I hope you enjoy some of these strange and wonderful (albeit slightly weird) ideas.
Horses are quite well know for their spooky nature and fleeing at scary objects (such as plastic bags) so imagine the time and patience that was needed to put together some of these designs and then convince the horse it was OK to wear it.
Black horses definitely come into their own at halloween, so much easier to paint on spooky skeletons.
For those of you that fancy something a little less scary how about some of these ideas, ranging from law and order to no order whatsoever in the hippy era.
However one of my favourites has to be the Harry Potter theme, horses at Hogworts that would be magical sight.
Of course it wouldn’t be halloween without the old pumpkins or Jack ‘O’ Lanterns and the art work has really taken off over the last few years. Here’s a couple of horse designs that really stood out for me.
Of course real fruit doesn’t last long so how about a more permanent pumpkin
The creative use of horse shoes has been a feature of this blog site before, in Horse Shoe Art. And talking of horse shoes, you can also paint them even if they are still on the horse.
I hope you enjoyed this collection of halloween images and if you have any of your own to add just include them in the comments below that would be great. There is also an art stall on the Equine Market page with more great ideas for art and equine gifts, which is courtesy of our link with Society 6, an online gallery and curator website.
