Have you ever watched a movie and wanted to be one of the characters?
I remember as a child watching movies and then pretending that I was whichever character or animal inspired me from that particular flick. Willy watched the Disney movie, Secretariat, and got inspired. He thinks he looks like him, what do you think?
Well, because Willy knows just how to sweet talk me into things, I ordered him this fun little costume so that he could act out his imagination. He was so proud of it.
He was even excited that the jockey wore checkered silks. No, they are not quite the same color of blue as Ron Turcotte wore, but Willy was still thrilled.
Willy was the famous Secretariat for the day. He preferred to be called Big Red.
I even recorded a couple of videos so that Willy could show you how great he looked racing across the yard, carrying his trusty jockey safely on his back.
OFF TO THE RACES!
“Do you give the horse its strength or clothe its neck with a flowing mane? Do you make it leap like a locust, striking terror with its proud snorting? It paws fiercely, rejoicing in its strength, and charges into the fray. It laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; it does not shy away from the sword. The quiver rattles against its side, along with the flashing spear and lance. In frenzied excitement it eats up the ground; it cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds. At the blast of the trumpet it snorts, ‘Aha!’ It catches the scent of battle from afar, the shout of commanders and the battle cry.” Job 39: 19-25
AND HE’S OFF!
