Why is it that some humans feel the need to dress us up in silly costumes at Christmas time or anytime for that matter? Why do they think we would love to wear antlers, Santa hats, and Christmas tree skirts? Why does the DOR in particular feel the need to do this horrible thing? Is she an evil elf of some sort, an escapee from the home for delinquent elves. Maybe she just gets caught up in the spirit of the holiday, trying to share it with all of us.
Here is Coelho dressed up. Does he look happy with the entire affair? I don't think so. I think he looks like he would like to lay down in the mud, rolling and covering his holiday finery in goo.
The DOR, Support Crew Chief, and Mushboy came out yesterday to do the "torture the horses with Christmas stuff" photo shoot. It was rainy and muddy, so the photo shoot didn't go on for too long. That could be a blessing or a curse depending on how the photographs turn out. The DOR may just settle for the pictures that they got or she may decide to come out and get some better ones.
I made sure to cooperate the best I could, given the fact that I had to wear a blue tree skirt and a hat with WHITE fur...so I might be safe from any follow-up shoots.
Good thing about the picture taking session is that we all get extra treats for being good sports. Some of us were better sports than others and I feel that those horses, especially me, should get extra treats for that.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

As a DOR who routinely subjects her horses to holiday tomfoolery, I say more treats all round!

Hats = 2 cookies, minimum.

All I have to say is thank goodness they only do this once a year.

Ah, Red, but lookee how cute that hat is. If Jack can pose for holiday photos, you sure can . . .
