I might be interested in some custom ones too, if the price is right...

For a good price, I REALLY want a custom set for the shows :p
Would you be able to provide both hard and soft brushes? I think you could make some cool custom grooming kits if so :)

Have you put a cover over them to protect the paint?

They sell it at craft stores. It comes in a spray can. You spray the protective coating on and it watrproofs the art, as well as keeps it from cracking.

I would definitely buy one if they weren't too crazy expensive! Have you thought about an Etsy shop?

Thank you all SO much for the all the awesome feedback!!

Usually the prices for brushes range $12-$30, but since I got so much positive feedback, mention that you saw my brushes on Horse Forum and the prices will be a bit cheaper. So here's the price breakdown (grooming sets will be a bit cheaper, so contact me for more details on a full set):

$25 for a large natural bristled brush
$22 for a large synthetic bristle brush
$ 20 for a small natual bristled brush
$18 for a small synthetic brush
$12 for a small face brush (synthetic or natural)

I will do custom brushes, with your horse's head on it, name, barn color, your colors...

Also, I make horse themed jewelry for horse lovers, so they make great gifts for your friends who don't own horses! Prices range from $12-$20!!

What a great idea! We like to keep seperate brushes for the horses and it's always a pain when they get mixed up. AND...what a great idea for Christmas and birthday gifts for friends!

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.

i'd love to get a set of brushes for my horse especially since most of his brushes are so old already. i might as well invest in something that's special made for him. what kind of prices are you giving for a complete set of brushes (stiff, soft, face, etc.)? also - where do you actually sell these? maybe i missed it - is there an online store or are you just selling through this thread?

I think they are darling!!! Don't know what kind of paint you are using but use the toughest paint you can get. I used to work for Sherwin Williams for 10 years so I know a little about paint! Their Duration paint is actually considered a "coating" and is tough as nails. It is expensive (approximately $20 per quart but ask if they have any "oops" Duration. You don't have the choice of color but it is generally about $5. Varnish it with their Deck stuff. It will be as tough as boots then.

It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
