Sharing What I Have Leaned
Sometimes I feel like Macgyver, you know, the guy who can go out into the wilderness and build you a shopping mall with a paperclip, stick of gum and some string. That guy is amazing. Granted, he is a fictional character but still, I feel like that most of the time.
If you have been visiting my blog for any amount of time, you can see that I am a real diy type person. And I don’t like to spend money. Well, let me rephrase that…
I do enjoy spending money, I just don’t have an endless supply of it to spend. This can be challenging especially if you have horses. There is always something to spend money on when it comes to horses.
And I have always done diy projects around my home, and especially in my barn. As evidenced by the amount of posts I have created for this blog over the past year and a half that it has been in existence.
But finding all of that information can be hard, even for me. I am going to take my favorite diy projects, and put them into a book. A real, tangible book that you can pick up and read. It may just be me, but I like being able to physically hold a book, and flip through the pages.
I have written multiple books, mostly related to building horse jumps. I am obsessed with building horse jumps. And it has been a while since I have written a physical book. So I have decided I am going to put together my favorites and share them with the world, again. I have so many ideas dancing through my head that I have to put them down to paper, or computer as the case may be.
A New Book Idea
I am not sure how many projects will be in the book, or even how many chapters. But I think it’s going to go a little something like this:
- Tack Room Projects
- Homemade Grooming Products
- Horse Décor
- Homemade Horse Jumps
- Stall Projects
And each heading will have projects related to the subheading of that chapter. Do you know how many diy projects I could make in each of those categories? A lot. So I think I will take my favorites and put them together for people to see, and use the ideas to be their own Budget Equestrian.
When Will It Be Available?
I am going to have a lot of down time in the coming month or so. And not the best kind of down time, because I won’t be able to ride my horses, or go to my weekly riding lesson. And I must have something to do to keep my busy or I fear my mind will explode.
With a lot of typing, and fine tuning different projects, I am fairly confident I can get this book ready in about 8 weeks. As I don’t know when I will be having surgery, so no time like the present to start writing, right?
I think I will shoot for a release date of July 1, 2018. We will see if I am able to complete this task, and I am confident I can do it. I love to write and do projects especially those that are related to horses and saving money. And being able to share what I have learned with others is something I really like to do.
What Would You Make?
And I would bet you have some things you have always wanted to make for yourself and your horses. If you could make anything for your horse, what would it be? What would you like to make? I am always looking for ideas and would love to know what you would like to make. I think I might make a challenge of this, and if I get some people to leave a comment with what they would make, I might just have to build it and put it in the book.
So if you have ever wanted to make something for your horse, but you weren’t sure how to do it, leave your idea down in a comment below. Maybe I will bring your idea to life, and show you how you can do it too!
