The holiday season is here, and along with shopping and visits to Santa, Amarillo's legion of painted horses will be getting into the spirit.

The "Deck the Herd" contest is back and in full swing for owners of Hoof Prints horses all over Amarillo. They have until Dec. 6 to decorate their horse and submit photos.

Center City Amarillo

The photos will be posted on the Center City Amarillo Facebook page where you and I will be able to "vote" for our favorites.

A fun way to spend a nice weekend afternoon, should we get another one before the holidays are over, would be to go see as many of these displays as possible. The Center City website has a full list of locations where the horses are installed.

For more information on the Hoof Print horses be sure to check out the Center City website. There is also an short history given on the project along with photos of all of the horses.
