My Belated Christmassy Post

We spent a lovely holiday with my family and today we headed out to the stable to visit Robyn’s family and the horses. The barn is always very festive around the holidays, with lights strung up and fir boughs on all the stalls (except for Hwinn’s stall, because she ate hers).

Lolly and Jelly

The newest boarders, Lolly and her guide-donkey, Jelly, wear their festive hair ribbons.

All of the horses got peppermints in their stockings, but Little Oscar also got an extra special present- a new rope toy!

He liked it very much. His “uncles” were intrigued, but were really more interested in the pepperments we had.

Please can I have another peppermint?

Last but certainly not least we tromped over to the other paddock where Cochise rules with an iron hoof. Mr. Mudball got at least four peppermints.

Happy holidays everyone! And just in case you need a tutorial:
