Marley was all charm and sweetness when we entered him in a parade, dressed in candies and lollipops. The family dressed to match and while I led Marley, Mr. OnceUpon and the kids passed out candy to children along the parade route. It was great family fun.
Pre-parade grooming & primping zone.
Lots of people stopped us as we were walking to the staging area, asking "What kind of horse is that?" and "Can my children pet your horse?" Marley was a charmer and his cute, round behind evoked a lot of giggles.
No caption necessary.
The only downside to being in a parade, is that you don't get to watch the parade.
I've loved horses all my life and owned several when I was younger. I showed in English Pleasure and Amateur Hunters in my 20s. Now in my 50s, following a long absence of horses, I've rekindled my passion. I have three equines at home - Misty, a Percheron mare, Lyra a mini horse and her daughter, Lola, a mini mule. We're an odd looking group, but we get along great.
