Christmas Camera Fun

Here on the farm, Christmas was a quiet day. With Daphne being in her cast, we stayed home. Really, who wants a terror puppy with a fibre glass weapon running around their house? Yeah, see, we *have* to live with it…no one else does. So we chose not to inflict that on anyone else. 😉

After presents, we went out to feed the girls, and as a part of that, we decided to have a little fun…

It started inside, with the house cats…

There’s none of Daphne with antlers, because she really just wanted to eat them. Next, we went to the willing outdoor cats…

Heidi was the most accommodating of the outdoor cats. But then, she’s a bit of an odd ball.

Once we were done with outdoor cats-Max was having none of this tomfoolery, and Fiona wasn’t letting us anywhere near her (I’ll tell y’all later about Marco and Polo)-we decided that horses must participate in the fun too…

She still wasn’t sure, no matter what he said…

When she checked it our herself, she knocked it down, which spooked her.

Once she spooked over the Santa hat, she was done. No way were we going to get the halter on her and humiliate her with stuff on her head. Sable, however…

Sable stood for the halter, the Santa hat, the reindeer antlers, and the princess crown…

This horse really is a doll…she stood like a dream for these shots, was more than happy to please, and was so disappointed when it was done. I look forward to getting a training refresher on her, because I can’t wait to see what her and Kid can do together!

Look at the smile on that horse's face...it really is true love.

Finally, we tried to convince Cookie that a. the halter wasn’t going to kill her. No go…she wasn’t having anything to do with the halter… and b. that the stuff we wanted her to wear wasn’t so bad either…well, that went marginally better, as you can see…

Princess Cookie (gotta love Ruby’s photobomb!)

She’s not sad, even though she looks it, I promise. It’s the Quarter Horse in her…she has a very stereotypical QH look…she was actually quite happily munching here, and settled after I hung the halter on the fence. It’s something we’ll have to work on with her, convincing her that nothing bad is going to happen, just because the Human has a halter with them. It’ll come, with time.

    Thanks for sharing the Christmas fun. They look at each other with the ‘What’s next?!’ question when you’re not around, I’m sure!
