I hope everyone successfully survived this weekend with both their stomachs and their wallets intact, because it is FINALLY my favorite time of year — socially-acceptable CHRISTMAS! While I myself may have been secretly Spotifying my holiday playlist since Halloween, Cooley Farms has come into the holiday season in full swing, complete with bells, lights, Santa, and sleigh. Clearly the Irish know how to do Christmas right!

Sponsor Corner: Something new is coming this way… Etalon Equine Genetics has discovered something big and will be announcing more information soon! Not Dominant White or Splashed White, this little guy pictured is a great example of their new discovery.
Morning Viewing: By now, you’ve likely seen the humorous and viral short video recently released by the FEI on why we should stop conducting “shavings inspections” in our horses’ stalls. This was a lead into FEI presenting their newest video campaign on YouTube: Think Outside The Box. This series is aimed at raising awareness and educating people about the risk of contamination in and around the stables, and hopes to highlight the biosecurity risks involved in our sport. There are already 4 videos released in this campaign, and you can watch the first here!
