Santa must have known we would spend a good deal of our holidays inside, thrilled that it was raining, because he brought Lily some old horse movies. We've watched "National Velvet" and "International Velvet" over the past couple of days.
I never watched them back-to-back before, and I'm all for artistic license, but we did have a good laugh over The Pie changing from a chestnut gelding to a dark bay stallion and being put out to stud. It was all so miraculous -- what was going to happen next?
I kept hoping the people from "What Not to Wear" would come in and give most everyone in "International Velvet" a new hair-do, but it didn't happen. As Lily said, "Riding helmets mess up your hair no matter what," so I guess that would have been a waste.
