Halloween! My favorite day of the year! I do professional face painting so my day is mostly filled with painting a lot of wiggly kids and sometimes drunk adults. Great fun. Carving pumpkin
Of course it wouldn't be Halloween without pumpkin carving.
The unsuspecting victim. I had a whole plan of carving it in the barn with my leatherman but I couldn't find it and I couldn't be arsed to walk to the house to get a knife so I carved it with a pair of scissors and still have all 8 fingers and two thumbs! That takes skill right there.
Why wouldn't I be carving it at the house you might ask? Well this one is not for decoration. I left the seeds and all inside of it. It's going to be a halloween treat.
Duunn nuunn...Note the Jaws theme on my playlist (sorry Ed, I put the johnny cash one you like second)
WATCH OUT PUMPKIN!! LAND SHARKS TO THE RIGHT!!
dduuunnnn nuuunnn.... dunn nuuunnn
Honestly, did you think it really stood a chance?Indigo and Sheba share well and devoured the whole thing
I turned around to see Suzy stareballing me. She wanted a bite too so I obliged.
Overall pumpkins are a wonderful thing to feed horses. Squash too but they are tougher and pumpkins are usually so cheap here. I paid 50 cents for this one. I got a natural wormer the other month for my horses and one of the main ingredients was pumpkin seeds. They all gobbled the wormer up when I gave it to them, no fuss about it they loved it. This year is the first year Indigo has not rubbed her butt on the barn. My vet really reccomended it as it saved a local womans standardbred. He has always been very thin and they found he was infested with worms. They were giving him tripple doses of wormer with no luck. One worming with this natural de-wormer and he was given a clean bill of health. Here is the link if any of you are interested. Most tack stores carry it.
So this year instead of throwing out your jack-o-lanterns the day after halloween give them to your favorite horsy friend.
