I bet you didn't know toy horses were meant to be Christmas decorations.

Nor did we, until Berry showed us.

Berry's Nanna gave her a Pasture Pals set of collectible horse breeds before Christmas. She spent quite a while corralling them neatly on the floor, and then: light bulb. She started perching them in the tree. They each sat quite neatly on their own branches, and we became perhaps the only people in the state with two-inch Thoroughbreds, Appaloosas, Pintos, Clydesdales, Shires and Lusitanos adorning their Christmas tree.

And Berry's likely the only toddler in the country who now calls horses "tree-cows". We can only hope she'll shake that off before primary school.



  1. Tree cows never looked so beautiful. :)

    Happy Holidays!

  2. That is a fantastic photo! It would make a great post card.

  3. so adorable!

    my 3 year old son did the same thing with his matchbox cars.

  4. Too cute! My niece would love those, since she has recently decided that she LOVES horses!

  5. Your christmas tree decoration looks wonderful!
