The Tale of the Traveling Horn

So, yesterday, my mom sent me an email with the subject line “Always” and no text in the body of the email. There was just a picture. An awesome picture. Behold:

I have an awesome mother.

Naturally, I forwarded this around to several fellow SmartPakers and we all agreed it was amazing. Then a few of us decided it should become something even more awesome. So we went to the craft store and crafted ourselves a horn, and then promptly headed to the barn. And now I present this treasure:

We took approximately 42 images to get this one useable one.

Now the horn is off on an adventure, traveling around to various SmartPakers barns. There’s also a mini-horn, because dogs want to be unicorns, too. Check out more awesome “Be a Unicorn” pictures here and share your own on our wall at Facebook.com/SmartPakEquine!

    It’s called an alicorn. Real unicorn enthusiasts will look down on you if you keep calling it a horn. It’s more than a horn.
