My British Babe!

Jessie was very excited to celebrate the marriage of William and Catherine now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  Wasn't Princess Catherine amazing?  After seeing all of the hats, Jessie wanted one of her own.  How could I deny her?
Look how demure she looks! :-)

Jessie! Be careful, you'll tear your pretty white ties!
Don't worry Blue, you will have a hat of your own soon....
Jessie couldn't wait till Mama ended this silliness so she could roll in the mud and graze.
Daddy Cat, stop looking at the pretty hat with such disdain!  Do you want one?
I guess getting up that early has taken it's toll....lol! I originally purchased hats for them to wear on Derby Day and will make Big Bad Blue one of his own so you will have to visit next Saturday to see it.  Ohhhh yea, he is going to wear a hat whether he likes it or not...all horses must celebrate Derby Day!  Blue you can do it!

I love the hat--In fact, I have to say that I think it looks a lot better than the one Princess Beatrice was wearing--Unless, if of course you like a hat like she wore.....

I hope you have a good weekend!!

Lori Skoog said...

LOVE the hat. Would mix well with the fancy at a wonderful royal wedding.

In honor of the British, Cheers!

Jessie looks classy in her new hat! She sure is calm to have the hat on her head...my horses would have totally freaked out and the goats would have eaten the flowers!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

LMAO that is so awesome!

Verde Farm said...

Oh my gosh--I LOVE Jesse’s hate--she is beautiful and so ready for the big royal wedding. I can’t wait to see Blue in his. I would wear Jesse’s hat myself!! :)

Michaele said...

Oh what a difference a good hat makes. She really doesn't look like she minds. So very pretty and such a good idea.

I love the hat for the horse. I put a crown and boa on my dog for a little Royal Wedding fun.

I did not view the wedding but these are wonderful pictures.

Flat Creek Farm said...

I'm so glad I came by for a visit, and to see your British Babe. Babe indeed.... what a hat!! This post is too cute for words. It's about time for my long-eared girls to don their party hats again for their mid-May b-days. The last time we tried that, they were nibbling on each others' fancy headgear!

Love this post! Thanks for stopping by to see us too ;) Enjoy the weekend!! -Tammy

Patrice said...

I bet Kate was jealous of not having a hat like Jessie's. The royals sure wear some odd hats!Jessie looks much better!

Rain said...

Love Jessie's hat-she is quite stunning!! Outshines all the horses at the Palace!! I wish I could have gone-just to wear an outrageous hat also!!

Razzberry Corner said...

I love the first pic of Jessie - the mud on her side, but the very pretty hat on her head! She wears it like a princess! I'm looking forward to Derby Day!

Sandra said...

She really wears the hat well:) I am sure the cat wanted one for himself as well, just would not admit it :))

Thank you for stopping by and for leaving such a sweet comment!

Thats darling! I loved the wedding too, the people hats were about 50/50 great and beyond stupid. Your horse looks better than some of those women! Loved the guard horses!

Edward said...

Wow now that is something I haven’t seen before, she looks very sweet, I’ve never put a hat on any of my horses but maybe Niko would look good in a top hat.
Regards

The Boston Lady said...

How lovely and I will be back next week for Derby day! Watching that wedding, I think, made us all wish to wear hats! Ann

Dreaming said...

Her hat is gorgeous and I can't think of a better reason for her to wear it than to commemorate the royal wedding. She can wear it again on Derby Day - no one will remember that they saw her in it before!

Ironstone and Pine said...

oh wow, that is so cute.......Breezy would have that off in a minute, and proceed to eat it, lol! love the pictures!

Leontien said...

I think this hat is the prettiest of all!

Thanks
Leontien

The Country Nest said...

Love your photos!!!
You asked about clemitis in a pot. I may have looked that way, but it is morning glories. I put seeds in and it just a nice filler for the patio and then it goesaway for winter. Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment.

lcjp2007 said...

Your photos are wonderful. It looks like you have an animal lover's dream life : ) Sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. Losing those we love is so difficult. I lost mine recently and have found that writing does indeed help. Glad I stopped by during the Blog Hop : )

Jeri Landers said...

Indeed, we girls never step outside the barn door without our bonnets on. But that hat, oh my! It is simply divine! Yours truly, Fiona Goosefeathers

So nice to meet you, I love your state, we pass through it a few times a year and I am always overwhelmed by the natural beauty. As a child I wanted nothing more than a horse, but now, Here I am with lots of land a huge barn and no longer a desire for the horse! I do have a pretty cute donkey though. Jeri

Vicki said...

OMG! This is TOO cute! Beautiful photos by the way....I adore horses and cats also...

Paula said...

Oh~ such a beautiful girl with her lovely hat! Yes, she must wear it on Derby Day, for sure.

Karen L R said...

Thanks for popping by my place. Your horse looks quite stunning and festive in that bonnet!

Phyllis said...

This is one of the funniest and cutest things I've ever seen.

Jess is one great horse to let you dress her up like a doll! I'll definitely have to remember to visit on Derby Day :)

Naturegirl said...

How much I enjoyed this post!Jessie how lovley you are all gussied up for the Royal day!I love your Farm Tails!

OK, that is the cutest thing ever. After I watched the derby, I vowed that the very next day I was going to waeve tulips and daffodils in Lilly's mane and parade her around and take lots of pictures. Well, what did I do? I plum forgot less than 24 hours after making this vow! So I am doubly glad to see this post of your horse wearing this most fabulous and colorful hat. I think celebrating a fairytale wedding too is a perfect excuse for wearing a big ole hat!! I also agree with C and C Antiques--kudus to Jessie for tolerating her hat so beautifully! I am not sure if my Lilly would like such a thing on her head one bit!

allhorsestuff said...

OH!! TOO special for words that photo op was, of your Jessie celebrating with stlye and a few muddy patches, I detected too!
Who cares her spirit was there for the couples day!

Loveed this!
