Horses From the Parade

I told you about the horse show and costume parade, but I also want to show you some of the other horses in the parade.

"I told you I don't want to be in a parade. Pull all you want.
You can't make me!"

"If you're the clown, why do I have to wear this wig?"

"Can I pick up radio stations with these things?"

Even backsides were decorated-

A fairy tail?


Purple tails might be the new rage at barns.


This next guy wasn't in the parade, but I caught a glimpse of him in the show ring. He's a Norwegian Fjord Horse, which is a light draft breed. Notice his mane. It was trimmed and shows the dorsal stripe that ran down the center of the mane. This is what's referred to as a Primitive Marking.

"Patrice. Tell my fans that I have a dorsal stripe. Okay?"
"Honey, I don't think they're going to believe it."
"I know. You just can't believe it. Right?"
"Wendell, you don't have a stripe. You have no Primitive Markings."
"But Cocoa said the Sharpie Marker would do the trick."
"You really shouldn't listen to the pony. Okay?"
"Can I just wear it trick-or-treating? I want to go visit my friend in SC."
"Wendell, we don't go trick-or-treating in other states. Be a good boy and I'll give you a carrot."
"How bout two carrots? One for each side of the handsome horse. Okay?"
"I guess so. Now stay away from the pony and the markers!"


  1. Love Norwegian Fjords...I think they're adorable:)

  2. wendell, you're beautiful au naturel!

  3. Oh Wendell! You scoundrel! LOL Look at your purple marker! You know, YOU don't need primitive markings darling- you are gorgeous without them!

    Love your captions Patrice!

  4. What wonderful creatures! Purple stripes and glitter fairy tails and all.

  5. Love these photos. The horses are so cute.

  6. Lovely post Patrice. Please tell Wendall he's so handsome and really DOESN'T need that purple stripe!

  7. Oh Wendell - you're so handsome,why would you want a purple stripe?

  8. My husband loves Fjords. He calls them "Mohawk horses." If he'd ever take an interest in riding, I'd get him one.

    Tell Wendell his stripe is lovely.
