Fancy New Jammies!

Lady got herself some fancy new jammies!  A Weatherbeeta Orican turnout sheet!  I loved the Fleur-de-lis on it, so had to have it!  (Might have to see if I can find another one in Cody's size!)  And Lady seemed quite proud of her new jammies, she struck a few great poses for the camera in between attacking the grass!  She's such a cutie! 

And so a little picture spam!

Bummer it's far too cold for a turnout sheet right now, but soon.  Though the mud is so god awful right now (as you can tell by her feet) that I might wait till the mud dries up a little bit before she wears her new sheet, since she still has the old one too.

The English translation of "fleur-de-lis" (sometimes spelled "fleur-de-lys") is "flower of the lily." This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life.

In the twelfth century, either King Louis VI or King Louis VII (sources disagree) became the first French monarch to use the fleur-de-lis on his shield. English kings later used the symbol on their coats of arms to emphasize their claims to the throne of France. In the 14th century, the fleur-de-lis was often incorporated into the family insignia that was sewn on the knight's surcoat, which was worn over their coat of mail, thus the term, "coat of arms."

Well, she's a Rocky Mountain/Quarter Horse.....so she's rather American, but we can pretend she's French Royalty!  lol!
