Wicked Pony Farm

Rider below sign... broken leg with crow eating it.

Sign is lighted and glowed at night.

Yes, we won Most Creative for our decorations at the horse show! What a job it was to pack up even more crap than we already take to a show. But, worth it. The kids really got into it.

Several people asked did I get the list off the internet for "Lovelies from our Farm". No, we thought them up with our creative barn minds. We used barn animals or animal by-products we are not particularly fond of.... rats, birds, cows, snakes, dog by-products.

Dog slobber- water and marshmallow fluff

Giant Fly Poop- rice crispies

Lost Teeth Found in Arena- corn

Bird brains- hominy w/food coloring

Bird Poop-canned blueberries w/Fluff and a drop of green color This was the MOST realistic one.... really.

Ring Worm- cherio's w/pink color

Barn Rat Brains- brussel sprouts w/green color

Rat Intestine- rotini noodles

Cow tumors- beets

Snake Eggs- black olives

Doggity Doo Doo- if you don't know watch "Caddie Shack"

Here goes... "Lovelies from our Farm" photos taken by 9 year old, I think she has a future in photog!

And finally a photo of some of the girls in the costume parade. Rider needs a hairnet!
