In the interest of generating some momentum and discipline, both of which I’m lacking a little lately, I’m beginning my blog in earnest . To start things off my plan is to make a cardboard horse everyday, monday – friday, first thing in the morning and post it ( and maybe some other stuff too). The horses are something I started a while ago and then slacked off on. They are little experiments intended to loosen me up, permission to try stuff, paralysis prevention. I’m going to make them until I have 100.

That’s the plan.

(I made 2 today, zeal of the newly converted)


Here are the others:


  1. Hi Ann,
    I’ve been working my way back through your horses to this first post about them and I think they are great. Well done on sticking with the discipline of it, I like the variety that it generates.

  2. […] This week there will be an unavoidable interruption of the hundred horse project. I have to go out of town part of the week and I’m overwhelmed with workish stuff. I’ll be back at it next week, only sixteen to go. […]

  3. […] My one hundred cardboard horses are done. I started, I finished and it was harder and way more work than I expected. It was frequently inconvenient, but no matter how much I sometimes didn’t feel like making one, it got my hands and brain moving in some sort of creative way, and for me, like a lot of people who work for and mostly by themselves that can be half the battle. So I’m glad I did it, I’d do it again, and I’m glad it’s finished. 100 is enough cardboard horses. I’m still not sure exactly what to do with them, but I’ll figure it out in the next week or so. In a couple weeks I’ll get myself on a new self inflicted program of some sort. […]

  4. Hello they’re beautiful, Ann./ do you midn me askign how they were made? are the buttons just stuck on or is the idea to have moveable parts – like Jacobin clowns that use split pins?
