This year's prop was a small Christmas tree.
We placed it on top of a barrel and encouraged each horse to interact with it in whatever manner they saw fit.
Most of the horses were very well behaved...
but a few landed themselves on Santa's naughty list.
I also tried to take tree-free candids of each horse. Somehow I missed Doodle and Scarlett, but here's the rest of the gang.
My favorite barn kitty, Squeaks, also posed for the camera.
This was such a fun way to spend the day.
I can't wait to do it again...
but I hope next year, it snows!
