    Default Christmas Words of Equine Wisdom From Willem... once upon a time.

    In remembrance of Coreene's late horse, Willem, I share his Christmas words from long ago:

    Christmas Presents for Das Pferd, by Willem.

    1. Giff us mannie karotten. This it be carrots auf Deutsch. It don’t nott to matter wot you think. We can eat mannie karroten at die same time. Like ten pounds at least. At once. Don’t nott to skimp; this is don’t nott to be in der Christmas spirit.

    2. Giff us ein promise off one apfel per day for die whole year. I like to eat mein apfels in two bites, but mein mannie girl mare friends, they like it best wenn you cut them upp in mannie little pieces.

    3. Stand under our mouth so der clothing can catch die apfel schpit.

    4. Giff us ein box off C&H Pure Cane Sugar cubes. We need TEN cubes per day. If you be saying “ten only” at die end, then we don’t nott to haff to bother counting und we know you don’t nott to be giffing us no more this day. Wenn the box it be empty, buy more. Don’t nott to let any no-sugar days happen.

    5.
    Get ein massage with ein horse chiropractor. I like this mit die girl chiropractors due best becose I don’t nott to like mannie men except for mein grandpa.

    6. Giff us die same loff wot we giff you. We loff you verrie much und it don’t nott to be nice if you don’t loff us die same. Don’t nott to make us do things wot make our feets hurt.

    Willem always makes me
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    Oh, Willem! I know it doesn't seem like I've been around long enough to know him, but I had a different screen name at that time...something ridiculous about my pony or something. I did loff him.

    Willem was very wise.

    I break this one a LOT, according to some people and my horses. LOL.

    Willem left him a detailed instruction book, so they are 100% on the same page

    That is the best advice ever.

    I too miss Willem, despite only "knowing" him here.
