Now that is a Santa I would take a photo with! Photo courtesy of Castlewood Stables Facebook page.

When I was a kid, I was terrified of any person who was dressed up. So that eliminated Chuck E Cheese and Six Flags or Disney World from the places that I could visit without having a screaming fit of terror. So you can imagine that taking photos with Santa or the Easter bunny was not at the top of my childhood bucket list. When the barn where I used to ride posted the photo above of their resident Clydesdale, Cadillac, sporting his holiday get-up, I immediately thought about the awesome photo opportunities this would afford. Cadillac is one of the most well-trained horses I have ever had the pleasure of knowing; he knows how to sit, count, bow, and many other things that I used to think you could only teach dogs (and mustangs, right Elisa Wallace?). If you’re in the St. Louis area, it’s definitely worth paying Castlewood Stables and Cadillac a visit!
