The 7 Days of Christmas

Well, like most horse people my schedule is way, way off. Multiple trips to the mall or the tack store to buy presents has interrupted my almost ritualistic existence of feed, muck, groom, ride, bathe, groom, muck, feed. So you'll have to forgive me for not offering my rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas. Instead, you're getting the shortened version. The final chorus would be this:

On the 7th day of Christmas Santa sent to me:
7 muckers mucking
6 mares a' neighing
5 silver conchos!
4 hauling carts
3 clean pens
2 woolen gloves
... And a pony in a pipe corral!

Now I'm off to finish shopping. *sigh*

Well, I have started singing "we wish you a merry Christmas" horsey. Instead of wanting "figging pudding" I say a "pretty pony".

You are both very clever! I'll probably be out today buying last minute horsey gifts. What horse doesn't like to get a bag full of goodies under the tree? And oh, how I would've loved a pretty Christmas pony instead of some pudding when I was a kid!
