Better Safe than Sorry


Hunting Season started this past Saturday. Here's Lily all dressed up in her blaze orange blanket! Every year my husband and I debate whether or not this is necessary - would a hunter really mistake one of our horses for a deer? Well, each year, somewhere, that does happen, so I always dress the horses in these blankets and braid orange ribbons in their manes & tails. Perhaps it's foolish, but on the other hand, I know that during the month of November I do not walk into the woods without wearing orange, so I don't see any reason why I would send my beloved horses out there without it...

I think she looks good in orange. Better than my step mother did when she went hunting. She wasnt a horse, but could pass for one.

Joke.

Those blankies probably keep her warm too! The ribbons are a nice touch. :)

Great idea. Strange stuff happens at humting time. A lady out here hiking on a posted trail was shot by a young man, he thought she was a bear. Go figure. MB

It looks like a darn good idea to me!
