I was wondering how long it would be before someone commented on the pretend Appaloosa in yesterday's post.
Honestly, she wasn't quite that obvious in person. 
The liberty horses were kept in near constant motion... 
and most of the time she was buried in the center of the pack. 
Every now and then, however, she'd poke her head in front...
or the horses would spread out a bit...
and I'd find myself singing, "One of these things is not like the other!"
Poor little Faux-aloosa.
It's not easy living a lie!


  1. I was going to say that! The spots on that horse look completely fake! Haha i thought something was weird about that horse in the first post :)

  2. Must be something exceptional about her if they are willing to paint her before each show.

  3. Although she looked kind, there was nothing obviously outstanding about the Faux-aloosa. She didn't perform any individual tricks and spent most of her time buried in the middle of the group. Perhaps they ran out of Appies and figured no one would notice...?

    And you know, I noticed but my kids didn't, at least not until they saw the pictures. Her faux-ness is very obvious in photos, but much less so in the hustle and bustle of the actual performance.

  4. And I missed it entirely... :-) What do you think they do that with? Spray paint and a stencil? Hair dye? Maybe that since it would be a real PITA to make her into a Fauxaloosa every day.

    P.S. *Sigh* Just when I get used to the new word verifications and am complimenting myself on my letter-discriminating eagle eyesight, they change it to BLURRY NUMBERS and letters. Either I need a new prescription or Google is really MAKING ME MAD!!!

  5. Haha! Completely agree with RiderWriter! And I think that faux-aloosa needs a new paint job, poor thing. Btw, that circus looked amazing. You certainly wouldn't see elephants, camels and horse-riding dogs in a circus down here!
