Well, not really, but I found this at the tack store rubber steer head and decided it would work using the same principles that goldfinch4 used on the spheres..

these heads will make nice additions to the cactus garden here and maybe one stuck out on the road near the HWY we live on.. I may have to bolt it down..

Anyway I'll try this one soon and let you all know how it goes.

That's too funny, what would one do with a rubber steer head? I mean besides pouring concrete in it?

I have not a clue, they had at least 200 of them there... they look like they are mounted on bucking things... it is a little funny, they had another type also.. can't remember what it looked like, but this one, I'm going to try laying the quikwall over it like the sphere.. someone that owns cow farms probably know what they are for.

LOL they use them to practuce roping. they mount them to hay bales or saw horses and can practice throwing the lasso over the horns. Mostly for Rodeo now I imagine, but heading and healing, the art of 2 cowboys working together, one lassoing the head and the other the back leg so they could stretch the animal out was used for branding at one time. They do make nice art objects though. I have one hanging in my son's "cowboy" themed room.

Gourd, you're coming up with some great ideas! That will fit perfect in a cactus garden.
