BEST part of having horses at Christmas!
This is my first year having my two horses at home. I wake up every day and still pinch myself for being so lucky. All my dreams have come true and then some.
So the best part of having horses at home on Christmas is not that you can't sleep in anymore, or that you have to put on your barn coat over your fancy dress, or that your relatives complain that your hair smells like manure, or that your favorite niece who used to love horses is now allergic and won't go near them. It's not that you have to go shovel manure while everyone else sits around a Christmas brunch or even that you have to haul jugs of water to the barn because your pipes froze.
The BEST part of having horses at home on Christmas is that you always have an excuse to leave the house full of relatives and the family drama, and the crazy bustle of a kitchen that is far too full, so you can escape to a quiet, peaceful barn where your horses look up with ears *****ed forward, and neigh gently as you give them a Christmas carrot or two and you linger just a little longer to soak it all in before heading back into the madness.
