Painting On Horses

Yes, that's right. Not painting pictures OF horses, but actually painting ON horses! Today as we rounded a bend, out of the corner of my eye I saw something strange on the Chick-Fil-A grounds. Here is my first glimpse.

We drove over and talked to the people. Seems it was children's day at Chick-Fil-A and to celebrate it, they had brought in two horses and paints with brushes. The kids were to paint on the horses, write on the horses, anything they wanted. I was totally flabbergasted! I watched little children writing all over the horses. The horses were very gentle and I am assuming the paints were food grade and would wash off later. Anymore, I just never know what I am going to see around here!








And as to why they had red reindeer antlers on the white horse? In the middle of the summer. Well, your guess is as good as mine.

Well this is a new one for me too.
Its a fun and unusual idea.
You asked if there was a prize for the Dirty Dash.
I think the prizes were medals. It really was just a fun community thing. It took place in Oregon.

Ginny, I am always amazed at the things you find in your area. This is one I have not seen before. Those horses were so sweet and gentle to allow the children to paint on them. What a fun event.

That's different! Never seen anything like this done before. They must have been sweet and gentle and ever so patient horses to let the children do that.

I would have worried about the horses accidently stepping on a little foot. But I bet the kids were thrilled.
