Fixing Up My Horses!5:35 PM
Hey guys! This week I decided to fix up my Our Generation doll horses.
I'd like you to meet my new horse, Ghost! Only five dollars at Goodwill...score!
Smokey has only made a few appearances, so if you haven't met him yet, this is Smokey!
We start the restoration with a simple wiping. ;) I am using the Target brand disinfectant wipes, but it honestly doesn't really matter.
Ghost's hair was getting in the way, so I put it up in a fashionable high bun thing.
After I wipe down both Smokey and Ghost, I cut a piece of a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and get it wet. I then rub off marks on both horses. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers got rid of almost all of the scratches!
Now, we move on to the main attraction- fixing the manes and tails! I removed the braid that was in Smokey's tail, (it was in for months..yikes!) and fill up my sink with water. (Temperature isn't really important, I used warm water, though.)
I used the conditioner that was just in my bathroom.
Once the sink is ready, go ahead and get the tail wet, from bottom to the top. Put conditioner on you hand and work it through the tail. (More is better than less!) On super tangled areas, I put conditioner on the tail, rather than my hand. Use the same procedure for the mane!
Both mane and tail are now conditioned and ready!
For Smokey, I used curlers, as I wanted a slight curl to his mane.
For Ghost, I braided it, and I put curlers on the end.
I let the mane and tail air dry overnight.
Ghost before- fresh out of GoodWill- a few marks, but very, very horrible hair.
Ghost after- Absolutely no marks, and gorgeous hair. I don't think I can even convey through pictures how absolutely lovely Ghost's hair is now. It is really amazing.
Smokey before- Horrible tale, plenty of marks.
Smokey After- Gorgeous mane and tail, and no marks!
The change in my horses are amazing! I can't wait to do more photostories with them!
I posed the horses in front my dollhouse as a sneak peek to what's to come...dollhouse tour posts!
