I think you mean "orchid"... the tropical flower, right?  Where do you live?  There's very few locations where they will grow outside.

How about lilies?  They can look kinda sort similar...

Okay, I don't know if this counts, but I recently got married and had my horse fancied up as a "wedding horse" with flowers in his mane and ribbons in his tail.  I think he turned out great!





Okay, apparently I can't post pics because I haven't posted 10 times yet.... any ideas? Can you see it on my profile?

I know this is an old post, but maybe for next year... ideas for crafty horse things to make:

Horse grooming brushes can be handpainted with the horse's name, owner's name/initials, or with a horse the same color as your mum's.  Or you can decoupage stuff on the back.

A nice groom box to hold brushes, fly sprays, etc.  I've seen some really nice custom ones from wood.  You can woodburn name/initials into it and stain it a nice color.

Halter/bridle/tack tags - I haven't done this yet, but I plan on making nametags for my horses' halters and bridles from Sculpey. 

Sew a nice saddle pad - if you are talented at this and know of a particular pattern or design she might like.

I'm always looking for new horse crafts!

Okay, I know this is a really old thread, but just in case anyone else is interested... this past weekend I made horse cookies to use when clicker-training my horse. 

Basically I mixed together oatmeal, corn bread mix, molasses, applesauce, a little bit of oil, 2 eggs, flour, cinnamon and sugar, and enough apple juice to make it into a sort of dough.  Rolled it into balls and baked at about 325 until hard (I didn't time, just kept checking).  Turns out my dog loved 'em, and I came home later to find my boyfriend eating some and sharing them with the dog!  (he KNEW they were supposed to be horse treats, but I made the mistake of telling him they were made with people-grade ingredients.)

I've made these before, and basically you can use any number of ingredients mixed in proportions to make the right consistency dough.  Sometimes I've cleaned out the pantry this way... old boxes of cereal or cake mix that won't be used can be tossed in!  Also, you should always add an egg or two, as it acts as a binder to help hold things together. A bit of oil in the mix seems to help too, although now I can't recall why. Here are some things I've used in the past:

Dry stuff: Oatmeal, corn meal, Bisquick, cake mix, gingerbread mix, powdered or regular sugar, brown sugar, cream of wheat, wheat germ, rice crispies, crushed cookies or graham crackers.

Moist stuff: applesauce, any flavor baby food, cooked and mashed carrots, fruit juice, molasses, honey, mashed banana (my dog loves dried banana chips)

If the mix is really sticky, it helps to use wet hands to roll it into balls.

NOTE:  Although many dogs love chocolate (as do people), do NOT use it, as it's poisonous... especially cocoa used in cooking. (Just in case someone reading this post isn't aware of that)
