It is beginning to feel rather Christmassy around here. We have a lovely wreath up on our gate which Galahad likes very much. He hasn’t actually tried to eat it yet but he has been looking as if he wants to!
I have also been reintroducing Galahad to his antlers. He wore them for the first time last Christmas and was surprisingly okay about them. Last year he started wearing them in hand as soon as December started and I gradually introduced them when riding too until he was able to wear them for a whole ride.
They did originally have bells on them but he hated them so much that I took them off. I also have a hat cover with bells on it which I was able to wear when riding him, although that obviously was nowhere near as close to his ears!
This year we have done a little in hand work with the antlers but he has not objected to them at all. We have now started riding with them on and he still doesn’t seem to mind. At any rate, he hasn’t reacted to them. I am even wearing my Christmas elf hat again. We are having a great time!
