Merry Christmas from our crazy family to yours!

I really do love the holidays, even though I find myself galloping from one activity to the next, trying to get the house decorated, perhaps some baking done, parties, shopping... well, I'm sure you know the drill. You're probably living at the same breakneck speed.

What's Christmas without a family portrait?


Christmas is special for my horses because it the season of Candy Canes. Yes, those delightful, striped hooks of minty-fresh sugar. Snoopy and Frostie both love them. I remember the first time I fed Frostie a candy cane. She was only four years old. As she crunched into it, she pursed her horsey lips and inhaled like Hannibal Lector describing fava beans and Chianti. I wish I had gotten it on video.

I did video Snoopy's way of eating candy canes. Dropping them into his feeder breaks them, and forget hand-feeding him. He's a sweet boy, but he's a land shark.

What kinds of special things do you do for your horses during the holidays? Do they get stockings?

PROMOTION:

This week, beginning at 9 a.m. PST, I'm offering Snoopy's memoir, From the Horse's Mouth, at the discounted price of 99 cents on Kindle. It's normally $3.99, so this is quite a steal. You can buy one for yourself and give three more as gifts for that price.

Snoopy has written a book for all ages, about growing up to become a champion, then suffering an injury, and having to fight to return to health. The reviews have all been complimentary. Readers have overwhelmingly labeled the book, "Sweet, funny, uplifting, and endearing."



Click on over to Amazon and check it out. I think if you're a horse lover, you won't be disappointed.

My OTTB left Kentucky before the peppermint craze kicked in for him, so he gets Starbrite candies in his goody bucket and eats them with all the other stuff. For his special Christmas treat, he gets a very big Honey Crisp apple.

Seems that your wonderful offer is not available, down in Oz. Can some of you send snow, we're about to have a heatwave?
