I asked a horsey friend, Donna, to design it for us. She is a graphic designer and I knew she would do a great job. I basically told her I wanted to incorporate horses and oxen and stick with the green color. I think her design is perfect. It took a few tweaks, and she was very patient with me, and I just love it!
We did the horse in a dressage frame, even though I would identify myself as an eventer. Dressage is the basis of all training in my eyes, so dressage it was. And I love her idea to use the yoke as the way to indicate we have oxen instead of trying to design the right looking ox Plus we would need two of them, since you yoke them together in a pair. So a dressage horse, jumping horse, and two oxen would be just too much! The four leaf clover obviously comes from the farm name, but it also is a nod to my husband's years in 4-H and we both feel as though we have been especially lucky in our life together. So it really is perfect! :-)
