Scary, scary hat!!! was created by Anne
One of the things I bought at the fieldays was a new winter hat. I was wandering past the stall and saw all these animal head hats. They had a unicorn with a sparkly pink horn. Awesome!! but it was cream, and when I said it would get really dirty on the farm, the stall holder showed me another one: "We have donkeys" Perfect!!!! Its made of natural, undyed grey sheep wool with a lovely spikey mane, button eyes and ear flaps.

I wore it for the first time today when I was at a jump training day. My big, young, laid back horse is terrified of it!!!!!! Pony couldn't give two hoots, but maresy had everyone in fits with her eyes out on stalksand all four legs braced look. She couldn't even cope with it when I took it off and held it in front of me!!! Methinks there will be a little desensitisation over the next few days or weeks!

Aren't animals funny. My chooks hate a certain 70's orange and brown shirt I sometimes wear. The run for cover at the first sight of it, and cackle and carry on as if I'm some kind of predator.

Most horses can't stand the sight, sound or smell of donkeys, until they get used to them, so if your neddys already are happy with donkeys, it's just a matter of them getting used to you the new strange donkey that has invaded your mare's space.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Haha! It sounds great! Perhaps you will have to bear treats when wearing it. :D We had a cat when I was young that was so sensitive to changes, he'd freak if someone in the family had a haircut...

Mine was actually $25 - so a better deal than those. Horses are now used to it. Still smells of sheep wool.

Keep an eye out for the stall at any fieldays or farmers' markets.

I had a laugh too at your hat story Anne.....being a proud donkey owner myself I bought a donkey hat exactly the same from the fielddays last year; BUT my donkeys hate it when I wear it & won't come near me!.....its even worse when my cellphone goes off as I found a neat ringtone that brays like a real one!!

Paradise Farm: A miniature horse, 1 miniature donkey, 2 alpacas, 7 sheep (+ 1 lamb), 3 hens, a rooster plus the dog the cat & the canary! (and a toddler that wants a motorbike:rolleyes:)
