A Little Bit of Sidesaddle Christmas..??

Leave it up to E-bay ..to have a Sidesaddle, Christmas ornament...of a woman riding a mule..or is it a rabbit?? cause those ears are ginormous!
..and even though this is not exactly sidesaddle..it was too cute not to include..
..and this too. Hey - who says you can't decorate your horse for Christmas!
These last 2 horses are American Saddlebred Rescues. Almost all of these horses are dead-dog (a Texas term!) broke because they were previously used by the Amish as carriage horses. If you are in the market for a horse, please consider one of these ..or more available at www.saddlebredrescue.com

Love the sidesaddle mule--maybe from South America? The horse with the garland and Santa has an absolutely adorable face. I so could fall in love with it!!!

Love that Belgian! I have a soft spot for draft horses now that I'm "owned" by a 3/4 Belgian 1/4 Appy/TB rescue from a Canadian PMU program (many of the mares and foals found their way to the Pacific Northwest through several determined rescue organizations in Washington and Oregon). My guy will never pull a fancy vehicle like this one as he is crupper-intolerant. But maybe someday I again will have a fine harness SB maybe even one who needed an upgrade from being "on the road" as they say.
