I am not horse mad by the way. I had horse mad friends growing up and did try to learn how to ride. Unfortunately one of my friend's had a fat and obese horse named "Star" who deliberately stood on my foot and refused to move. Nearly broke a bone in my foot. I chose motorbikes thereafter.
My school mate is now my sister in law and had passed her mad fetish onto my darling niece Becky. So the fabric had to be "got" and a bag made.
Here it is:

This wild duck followed me up and down the riverbank while I was looking for a great photo spot for my bag. Looking to be fed? Or is he after his 15 seconds of fame on a blog? He (or she) is rather cute! Sadly for him/her I will not feed wildlife. They need to learn to look after themselves! Tough love!
Bag pattern information:
This bag was made using a free bag pattern shared by Keyka of Keyka Lou - The sewing blog. She also generously allows home crafters to make a few to sell on their stalls etc. I am planning on making one or two to sell using some "African animal" fabric I found with lions, zebras, cheetahs and a giraffe.
Kind regards and HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!
