Jump ideas?

So... Rich was really interested in building some jumps for me, and he really liked the looks of the jumps featured in this thread:
I have a question, since I am completely atristically challenged.. what sort of (wild and weird) jumps would you like to have?
Rich suggested stuff like:
On the Standards: Firefighters or Fire hydrants
Poles: making the poles look like a fire hose stretching between the two standards
On the Standards: Nightstand
Poles: Make them look like a bed

... I'd love to hear your ideas for some cool jumps! Rich is very skilled and artistic, so don't worry about complexity ;)

I love crazy jumps! We've got an american flag jump, witht he poles painted red white and blue and flag-like standards. We have a rainbow jump, with the poled all the colors.
The fire hyrdrant idea is cute. :)

You guys have some really good ideas but I am used to building cheap jumps which means barrels and wood but I will try to think up some ideas.I have always wanted to. How about like having something to do with tack or grooming tools and like a lead rope for the fence part ? I am not sure how it would look but it could work. Or maybe like carrots and apples and salt blocks and horse cookies on one? Or you could do something with your riding gear like a pair of boots or half chaps or a helmet and you could use a crop for the bar on the fence? I am not sure if you even would like these ideas but they might help are you going to post pics of the jumps once they are finished? I'd love to see what ideas you use

I just thought of one last night at 10:30 how about a breakfast one that has bacon or sausage as the rails and eggs on the side? I will keep thinking it really is fun!

Ok... What about for a smallish jump A couple fancy/bright colored chickens at each end with a row of eggs in the middle.

"@>ooooooo<@" like this only with legs

I LOVE schoolng really scary looking jumps, they're so much fun and when you get to the shows the horses won't spook

Anyway how about a beach jump, like palm tree standards and surfboards planks for the cente

Ill try to come up with more ideas

What about having a horse jump? One standard could be the head to the front legs. The other standard would be the horse butt, and instead of having poles, have planks and have the rest of the horse's body.

Since you're in Canada, have the jump part of it the Canadian Flag and have some thing else for the standards.

Hmm, i'll have to think of more..
