The unique cowboy and cowgirl scarecrows were made primarily of natural items found around the Fallbrook area. Head, arms, legs and chaps are sheaths from local queen palm trees. The eyes are made from macadamia nuts and ficus tree leaves.  The hair is made of hay and the cowboy’s body is stuffed with past issues of the Village News! 	The cowgirl is waving a pink banner to support Breast Cancer Awareness.  The cowboy is sporting a yellow banner to welcome our troops as they pass by on Mission Road.

The legend tells of a Hessian soldier who lost his head in cannon fire and roams the Hollow at night in search of his head. This scarecrow wears a crafted Hessian uniform made from odds and ends at local thrift stores. The Headless Horseman will be available for viewing on Saturdays and Sundays
