The first apartment I lived in was over a garage and overlooked my landlord’s backyard. Yes, it was every bit as glamorous as it sounds! There are many things that I don’t miss about that apartment, but pretty high up there on the list was the passion that my landlord and his extended family had for playing horsehoes. Through the spring, summer and fall, seldom was the weekend morning I didn’t awake to the clanging sound of horseshoes hitting a metal stake as cries of “Ringer!” came from the excited horseshoe players.
I guess I must have had my old landlord and his family on my mind when I created this unicorn illustration. Because this is no ordinary unicorn. Look closely and you will see a horseshoe looped over his horn, and somewhere in the distance someone is most certainly shouting “Ringer!”
Prefer to add your own saying or other custom text? You’ll find graphic t-shirts, greeting cards, water bottles and more featuring this artwork with a spot to add your own message or a name over in my Zazzle store.
Looking for something a little less wordy? You’ll find tees, stickers, mugs and more featuring a lavender colored unicorn with a mint green horseshoe looped over his horn in my Redbubble Shop.
Or if you prefer the white unicorn with the golden yellow horseshoe you can shop this style in wordless designs on t-shirts, hoodies and much more over in my Threadless Artist Shop.
