HN Christmas Carols: ‘A Few of My Favorite Things’

These are a few of our favorite (horsey) things — what are yours?

Some may not consider this song a true Christmas song, but we do. That’s all. 

Hoofprints in footing and hearty barn banter

Light floaty trotting and smooth rocking canters

Big soft-eyed geldings all tacked up like kings

These are a few of my favorite things!

Cream-colored ponies and bright mares with moxie

Fresh colts and fillies and steeds that are stocky

A horse that can move as though she had wings

These are a few of my favorite things!


Races with payouts and blue satin sashes

Score cards with bonus and no docked-off slashes

Feelings of pride only hard work can bring

These are a few of my favorite things!

When the ears pin

When the shoe’s thrown

When I’m feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don’t feel so bad!
