Hello everyone. I know it’s not Thursday but I couldn’t wait to share this with you. All total, I reference more than 17 because I added a few of my personal faves which I have made myself and they are fab-u-lous.
There are 17 spookily cute ideas over at ChooseVeg.com. I picked my two favourites below with links to everything else.
Make your favorite veggieloaf recipe but instead of baking it in a loaf pan, shape it into little coffins (with your hands), bake them and draw a ketchup cross on top of them. You can use this recipe if you don’t already have a favorite veggieloaf. You can shape the mashed potato ghosts with a spoon like these ghosts from last year’s Halloweegan, or you could always use a pastry bag or Ziploc bag to squeeze them onto the plate. They have little ketchup eyes and mouths that I drew with a toothpick.
How about some vegan Frankenstein avocado toast? Olivia Lin writes:
I don’t mind that my Frankenstein toast doesn’t have perfectly smooth green skin– it has some little lumps and bumps because I just smushed my avocado with the back of a spoon quickly and spread it on…I think that’s the beauty of Frankenstein, he doesn’t have to be perfect! (Keep smushing and smashing if you want a smoother consistency.)
Researchers say these differing views have a lot to do with peoples’ personal beliefs and experiences. This indicates that horse welfare is still very subjective, which is why there’s a real need for reliable welfare evaluation tools with objective scoring, they said.

IF there’s one thing horse owners aren’t short on, it’s opinions. From feed types and housing options to horse health maintenance and even a favorite pitchfork, equestrians tend to know what they believe and why. This even extends to what constitutes good or bad horse welfare — not everyone agrees on what’s good and bad for horses. Those views, researchers recently confirmed, have a lot to do with peoples’ personal beliefs and experiences.
“The idea of welfare is an important concept to anyone dealing with animals, but what welfare is, or what comprises good or poor welfare, seems to be very subjective and influenced by personal, cultural, or societal values,” said Katrina Merkies, PhD, associate professor and equine program coordinator at the University of Guelph, in Ontario, Canada.
In a recent study, Merkies and colleagues asked 14 industry professionals to consider a series of 12 scenarios involving horses and owners, each of which described a situation in which horse welfare might (or might not) be compromised. Read full article »

According to a Facebook post from the Cape Hatteras National Seashore on Saturday, all of the ponies that call Ocracoke Island home were safe and sound. Even their pony pen stood undamaged.
A similar sight was seen a little over 100 miles north of Ocracoke in the towns of Carova and Corolla.
The Corolla Wild Horse Fund, a group devoted to protecting and managing the herd of wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs, posted a message on its Facebook page saying the horses were “doing their normal thing – grazing, socializing, and wondering what us crazy humans are all worked up over.”
Forecasts earlier in the week that showed Florence potentially making a more direct hit on the northern Outer Banks had many people worried about how the horses would fare.
But wildlife experts had said there was no need to worry.
