What should I do?!

I need an idea for our county fair's costume contest. I've done pony princess, now I need a new idea.
I need something creative that your able to describe. The announcer has to say it.
I'm going with my little haflinger, Tanoka.
Any ideas?

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I've done Angel/Devil & Hippies with my horses :)

One thing I've learned working with horses: You can FORCE a horse to do something on a tight rein and he might do what you ask or you can TEACH a horse to do something on a loose rein and he will do it willingly with his heart.

I'm planning on my son being a caveman and his horse....the wooly mammoth for his Halloween show! Get some blinkers and attach a trunk, get a brown blanket and add yarn.

I dressed my mare as Clifford the Big Red Dog from the childrens book series. The girl who owns Clifford in the books actually rides the dog so it worked really well. The costume was very easy to make; red polarfleece made into a sheet, neck cover, leg wraps, and tail wrap. Then we used more fleece to make big floppy ears and trimmed the ears with a fur boa. A big collar with a yellow fleece "tag" that said Clifford completed the look. People at the show loved it!

Go for it :) I'm going to try to post a photo of the horse in costume here. Hopefully it'll work. This was the prototype; it looked better finished but of course we never got pics of her in the full outfit.
