Memorial Benches for Horse Play, Inc.

Postby pjalbert » Tue Sep 24, 2019 6:02 pm

Recently, I was asked by Horse Play, Inc to carve the names of horses into the backs of two steel frame benches that had been made by FerroDesigns in Tullahoma. A different font was used for each horse that more or less matched the horse's personality. These horses served in the equine therapy program offered at Horse Play and have been retired. This community service project was forwarded to me by John Hartin at the June Wood Club meeting. In the near future, a story about Horse Play and the memorial benches will appear in the Tullahoma News.
