We all decorate our Charlottesville homes for Christmas, but do you decorate your stable too?
My stable was always decorated for Christmas. The sliding doors sported matching wreaths adorned with red bows and pine cones. The office was not to be forgotten and the mantle sported greenery and candles. Stockings were hung on the stall doors to be filled with peppermints, horse treats and carrots. Sometimes there were peppermint wreaths as well. Not to be forgotten, there were plenty of goodies for the barn cats. Christmas night all of the horses enjoyed a hot bran mash. One of my favorite times of the day was walking down to the barn after Christmas dinner, listening to the contented horses munching hay, all cozy in their blankets and giving each one a last peppermint.
What are your Christmas traditions on your Charlottesville horse farm?
