James Herriot and Draught Horses

Horse Jewelry Music Box | Kids Enchantmints Horse Ranch B1023-A

A few weeks ago, I found this dancing horse musical jewelry box at the Goodwill for 1.99.   The picture on the outside of the box caught my eye because it reminded me of a scene from James Herriot’s Animal Stories.   The box was wound tightly in plastic wrap, so I could not tell what sort of shape it was in.   I unwrapped it and was delighted to find the little music box  in mint condition   I decided to wind the key on the back and the music started playing “My Old Kentucky Home” while a lovely brown horse twirled round and round.  The jewelry box has four drawers: one in front, one in back, and two on each side.  Chasing Treasure.com sells the same jewelry box for  $38.95.
