Saturday Links from Tipperary

Falling off right in front of the judges? TERRIFYING! Photo via Jack Rainwater Jr. on Facebook.

Some barns take holiday decorating VERY seriously and I have mad respect for those that do — especially the ultra-creative ones. These horse skeletons seem to be gaining in popularity and despite their questionable anatomic accuracy (what’s with the ear bones??) I can see why: there’s so much fun you can have with them! I’m patiently awaiting Orchard Hill Equestrian Center’s resident skele-horse to make a reappearance. Shout out to Area I eventer Caroline Teich who had me in stitches last year with her creative dioramas.
