Do you know how hard it is to find a hat fit for a mini mule? No? You do not provide to the whim of such a creature.... poor deprived you! Oh sorry what was I saying, yes, hats! FH has done super duper with her finding me a shield of steel to keep those midges from my body but then those nasty creatures started to eat my ears and my face... ugh!
I got all itchy and managed to cut above my eye with all my scratching, FH has tried fly fringes and bonnets to no avail, they were not manly enough for me so I trod them in the dirt.... she wasn't impressed.
So I sent her off with a bee in her bonnet (no pun intended ;-) and asked her to hunt high and low for a milliner fit for a mini. A milliner she said, what is that? Honestly, you just can't get the staff these days....
So I told her it was a hat maker and that I desired something in my favourite colour of mud brown that would be up to my rolling around and would not make me look girly....
Well, she did pretty well! Look at my fine new headwear! Isn't it brilliant?! When it arrived in it's own personal hat bag I knew it was high enough quality for this mini, the milliner was not an amateur - hooray! There was just one teeny weeny problem... well quite a large problem..... what are you supposed to do when you have superi-ears like this? Never one to be concerned by such minor issues FH grasped the scissors (I gasped a little as this was my new hat....) and snipped off the ends! Ahhhh bliss my ear tips can poke out and I can hear really well, with the addition of a tiny blob of anti fly potion on my ear tips I'm good to go!
I've had my new hat for a couple of weeks now (some of my dedicated fans have already spied it :-) and I have been reserving judgement before telling you all about it. Well what can I say? I LOVE it!
I have been testing it along with my shield of steel (aka anti midge suit) and I am pleased to report it is wonderful! For the first time ever I am totally unbothered by the midges and have a beautiful shiny coat. FH takes my shield of steel and hat off every night for a good brush and check over (any excuse to cuddle me I think) and even she cannot believe the difference in my handsome self - I'm a new man!
Underneath that tough exterior is a rather shiny looking mini mule with no rubs and a shiny coat. I am so pleased not to be spending so much time itching those scratches and FH is delighted that I am not threatening to push the stable over with my enthusiastic rubbing anymore.... not to mention my bottle brush tail and trashed "less than mulificent" rugs of last year.
I have made sure that my shield of steel and hat are mini mule proof. Look they are good to wear for dinner... what more could a mini mule want?
Happy weekend friends, I'll be spending it munching, rolling in the mud, walking with Catanian and snoozing... bliss! Hope yours is as perfect :-) The Mini xxx
