Christmas Parade

   We took the team of Halflingers to Torrington for the Christmas parade. My boss and I outrode for the team. I rode El Gato he did really good. There were acouple time's he got tight but nothing bad. Stuff like parades and and getting out in the public is really good for him. Just makes him into a better horse. The wagon.
 Going down the parade route.
A bunch of cows coming to cake. They get kinda excited.
I got some new neckrags when we went to town the other day. OK I got fabric for Sharon to make them. Haha. I'll let you all in on a secret I got Sharon a serger sewing machine for Christmas. It will be nice for her to make baby clothes.
It's snowing here today. Glad I have the day off to spend with Sharon. I think I might try to get into my room and build a couple split ear bridles. I have a bit that needs one and I ordered a spade bit the other day so I'll need one for that as well.
  Until next time take care

A Christmas Parade. What a neat idea. Looks like the Haflingers were quite calm. The sewing machine is a perfect gift for Sharon, and I'm sure she'll put it to good use. I'll look forward to seeing some of those finished neck scarves, as well as the baby clothes.

The colors are really cheerful, looking foreward to seeing the bridles as well as some baby clothes :-)

Sounds like a fun parade day that went well. A serger, lucky girl! She will have lots of fun with that I am sure.

I've never been brave enough to ride a horse in a parade. My "broke" horse is kind of spooky, and I worry someone else would get hurt if he couldn't handle all of the sights and sounds. Looks like fun though!

I used to ride in lots of parades- it's fun and good for the horses, like you say.
A man who buys fabric- my hat's off to you! Nice choices.
I'm sure your wife will love her Christmas gift.
