The hat is lovely, very nice colors. And the socks, I that the heel and toe are different colors than the rest of the sock. How is the fit on that heel? How does it compare to other handknit heels?

The heel fits beautifully. I have not a lot of experience, as this is only the second sock I've knit. This pattern was much easier, and the whole deal is carefully measuring your foot and making a cardboard pattern, ostensibly so you can try the sock on the cardboard foot as you go along. I didn't wind up doing that, but the whole she-bang makes for a good fitting sock in general. I have high insteps and at times my socks would slip down and wind up in my shoes. This won't ever happen with these, which is one of the things the designer promises.

The socks and hat are really nice!

Oh what trouble horses get themselves into! Honestly, if there is anything dangerous on any piece of property, you can bet that a horse will find it and get himself in a pickle over it!

I hope the horse wasn't stuck in that manhole/drain ? for very long! My goodness.

Don't we know it! We have a horse, and he hasn't fallen into any holes but does manage to cut himself from time to time. His paddock mate is also biting big chunks of hair and skin out of his hide; may have to separate them.

The funniest mishap I heard about was a Shetland pony who ate a lot of fermented apples off the ground, got drunk, and fell into a swimming pool!
