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.

The recipe for this is from WingItVegan.com. Here’s what she writes:

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.

Look at these fellas from ForkandBeans.com. Aren’t they a scream?

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.)

Halloween and Horses

This is a fun look costume and the horse does not seem to mind the headpiece. Know your horse and dress him up accordingly.
This is a fun Halloween costume and the horse does not seem to mind the headpiece. Know your horse and dress him up accordingly.

People who love their horses want to include them in everything they do, especially during holidays.

Halloween can be a bit tricky because you must put together a costume that does not hamper a horse’s movement, distract him or make him uncomfortable in any way.

Note: We are not happy about the chain bit. We know why they are used but . . . just saying.

Haunted barn benefits horses

People looking to get spooked for a good cause this month can scare up a few dollars and head out to Windsor for a haunted barn and hayride being put on by a horse rescue organization.

This is the third year of the creepy event for Diamonds in the Rough Equine Rescue, and owner Sonja Reuter said they are hoping for plenty of victims to visit the farm to help fund the organization, which has been an official nonprofit for three years.

“In that three years, we have taken on over 350 horses,” Reuter said. The organization works with animal control officials to help abused or neglected horses and also takes voluntary surrenders from owners who are no longer able to care for them.

“Our vet bills run about $80,000 a year,” Reuter said. “Since we don’t get funds from animal control, this is our way of funding our practice. Our goal this year is to try to make $12,000. That would pay off last year’s vet bill.”

The hayride will take about 20 minutes and will wind through a haunted forest and graveyard, Reuter said. Visitors then will go through the five mazes in the barn, followed by spirits and specters of all kinds.

“It’s tons of fun, and it’s a great family event,” Reuter said. “It’s cheaper than going to a movie.”

Folks who don’t get too scared and want to stay around longer can also hang around the bonfire and listen to ghost stories, Reuter said. There might even be volunteer opportunities for those who want to participate in the scaring, she said. Read full report >>
