"Native American" Helmet

We collected some Canada goose feathers at the park, and gave Miss Mackie a custom brain-bucket treatment.

The first time, the feathers were just stuck in loosely, and they blew away as we rode home. Each loss was a tragedy. So we returned and collected more feathers. This time I used an old tube and cut some tiny holes in it to anchor the feathers underneath the visor. It seems to be doing the job quite nicely.

We put some miles on it this afternoon, to visit and feed carrots to our pony friends, and a quick stop at a tractor store. Mackie was thrilled because the horn on the tractor worked.
