tn_2010-03-05 Bear Holiday St Patrick Saeren Sheridan

Our St. Patrick’s Day Build-A-Bear friends wish everyone in the blogosphere a very happy holiday! Saeran is a Lucky Teddy and we don’t know what species of Build-a-Bear Sheridan is. We have a few of the holiday bears around here—I will try to remember to introduce them when their holiday arrives. They’re in charge of the celebrations when they arrive, so we thought they would deserve some highlighting here on my blog!

Things have been pretty exciting around here. tn_2010-03-16 Marlowe (3)Mom bought me some boots at BAB a few days ago and found my English riding habit. They’re western-style boots and an English style outfit, but Mom doesn’t think it matters that much.  I think I look silly with my ears pinned back by the helmet, but Mom says safety is the most important thing, and if I want to ride, I am going to have to deal with the helmet. Fortunately, she let me take it off for the rest of the photo taking, so it didn’t hurt my ears for very long. We have come up with ideas on how to make a bridle for Jefferson, but the saddle is still beyond our collective crafting skills. We are going to work on it for a while—it’s certainly not the end of my riding adventure. We have decided that the bridle can be made out of strips of leather. The saddle will need to be made out of some kind of fabric so Mom can sew it herself. She thinks that her sewing machine might be able to deal with leather, but I don’t want her to break it. Oh the possibilities!

tn_2010-03-16 Marlowe and JeffersonI do think I look pretty snazzy when I am standing next to Jefferson. He is a good size. He has been hanging out a lot with our other four-legged pony friends. I think the added boy to our herd is balancing things out nicely! When Mom went to BAB to buy my boots, there was an advertisement for a gold and white sparkly pony, so I’m afraid that the balance is not going to last for long.

I have other adventures that I will tell you over the next few days. Mom took me outside today and we’ve had a few new arrivals. I think this is a long enough entry for now, so I hope you all are having a great holiday. I’ll talk to you later!

  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day! You are very smart ridder. I agree with your Mom: "safety is the most important thing".

  2. We don't have a St. Patrick's day here in the Netherlands, is it a day that everybody is free from work? And what's celebrated??? They look like special bears those holiday bears... We have some christmasbears in our house.

  3. Safety is very important indeed. My owner used to ride and she tels me it's very easy to fall off a pony.
