Who Needs a Stinkin' Parade?

Since they canceled the Suamico Christmas parade due to the storm, and since we bought all the decorations already, Sara got Hank all dolled up in his parade attire.

We'll begin with his end:
Just lovely.

Next, Sara wove lights into his mane:
He tolerates just about anything. He may not approve, but he tolerates.

The sleigh bells were loaned to us by a friend, and they sound really neat:

I sense a lack of approval on his part:
The decorations on his bridle were picky on his face.

Trying to pose in the wind:

Heading out for a quick lap around the yard:

Heading home. That was enough, and it was cold out:

Kinda breezy:

Less wind here, we'll try to pose again:

Finally, a really nice shot:
Merry Christmas from Hank!

And I thought that people only dressed up cats and dogs.

Sarah said...

Lights in the mane. That's a neat idea! Hank looks smashing in his Christmas git up!

Terry said...

Way cool!!!! Hank is a good boy.

Sherri said...

Hank is very handsome!

Oh, Hank, you very handsome and extremely patient horse! As I was reading this and looking at the pictures, I was trying to imagine getting my (bratty) donkey, Chester, dressed up in such finery. Now he would make his pleasure known to EVERYONE far and wide. The posing pictures are delightful - so glad you had a chance to do your walk-around, even despite the parade being cancelled!
