'Tis the season for costume hunting and while most of us have our adult party costume planned or our kids' costumes picked out, how many are ready for our pets and animals' costumes?
Here are some costume and Halloween ideas from your friendly staff at Hired Hand.
Paint On Costumes:
You can use non-toxic water based tempera paint on horses or cows and other animals with short hair.

Here is another helpful blog on other ways to decorate a horse.
If you don't want to use paint on your animal, dressing them is clothes is a good second.
Many of these can be created at home with items you have laying around. Such as cardboard, ribbon, an old sweater etc.

Try having fun by incorporating your pet with your costume. Think about famous movies or band members. Don't be afraid to get creative or punny.
