Hey there Hattingdon lovers. Here I am again your blogging cartoon horse hat wearing queen.
The Kentucky Derby Festival was officially kicked off Saturday night with Thunder Over Louisville. Our lives will be taken over for the next few weeks — unless you left town like a bunch of Louisville folks annually do. Ha, ha, ha!
Mrs Farrell makes two specialty hats for the occasion but not every single year. This year she has. Hooray! One for the Kentucky Oaks. The other for the Kentucky Derby.
Kentucky Oaks Hat
First, the Kentucky Oaks is America’s premier and most lucrative race for 3-year old fillies held each year on the day before the Kentucky Derby. This year the Kentucky Oaks is on Friday, May 4th.
Mrs Farrell has made the sweetest hat in the world for the Oaks but we need your help. She has made it in four colourways. WHY does she do that???
She says she always thinks it will be easy to pick a favourite from the bunch, but then it doesn’t work out that way.
Here are the four. Vote for your favourite. Make your voice heard in comments. Or, if you do not have a WordPress account, then email us with your selection by its number.
