Make sure you have six and a half minutes to spare.....

as I have got the most fantastic video for you to watch.  I saw this over at Caroline's blog and couldn't believe how graceful a horse could be.  I normally have no interest in horses, but this was marvelous.




Caroline was saying that unfortunately Blue Hors Matine' had to be put down earlier this year when she broke her leg while in her paddock, what an awful shame.

This is a beautiful song, Celine Dion "Oh Holy Night."

I was in town on Friday night and I bought Molly and dd two cats their Christmas presents.  I bought Molly a stuffed rabbit, to go with the her squirrel and hedgehog.  I am going to wrap it up and she can "open" it on Christmas morning!!

The video caputured my heart. Would love to pass it on to a horse loving friend.

Happy Christmas to you and your family.

You're right Gill, that was a fantastic performance by the wonderful horse (and rider).It looked like the horse was listening to the music and moving to it and did you notice the horse's tail? I'm not sure if it was swishing it to balance or moving it about out of sheer pleasure. Thanks for that.
Now I'm going to watch Celine Dion.

I'd be afraid to teach DearDog to "open" presents. He might apply the skill all year long. Have fun!! ~Liz, where the snow may melt today, maybe?

I once saw the Lippizaner (sp?) stallions....AMAZING!!!
I love horses , they are such gentle sensitive creatures.
We cannot put presents under the tree because one of our cats, Jacob, tears them open...even if the label has someone elses name on!

Amazing performance by that darling horse. He has better moves and rhythm than my hubby (which actually isn't saying much LOL). Thanks for sharing : )

You do know what dressage means, don't you?

It is French for, "How'd they get the horse to do that"?
