Halloween brings out the kid in all of us, and it’s especially evident at a Halloween party. While I always prefer the company of horses to sugar-warped children, it was even more fun celebrating the holiday with friends (and their horses) at Davis Equestrian.
In years past, I’ve participated in the costume party as well. One year I was Princess Lea to Kobi Wan Kenobi and another year saw Jake and Kobi participating as Scooby and Scrappy Doo.
This year, since I’ve been away so long and didn’t know any of the entrants, I was asked to be one of the judges. At first I thought it would be fairly easy – who doesn’t want to express their own likes and dislikes. Then I was reminded that EVERYONE thinks their costume is the best. One of the contestants thought he deserved first place and voiced his rather arrogant opinion with me sitting only feet away. Oh, well, can’t please everyone and if he was that sensitive maybe he shouldn’t have participated in the first place. It just reinforced my low opinion of clowns!
For those of you just dying to know who the top prize when to, I’m a sucker for partner themes (remember Scooby and Scrappy Doo), and first place went to Fred and Wilma Flintstone. Click on this link to see the photo’s. Feel free to cast your own vote!
