A horse wearing a reindeer costume?

The theme today at ABC Christmas Challenge is V for Vixen (not the female fox kind of vixen, but the kind named after the reindeer who pulls St Nick's sleigh!).

I decided to make a clean & simple kind of card for this challenge, so printed my image, and a sentiment in fancy font that says 'Dashing through the snow...'

However, it was only while I was colouring in my image and humming the rest of the song to myself that I realised that Jingle Bells is actually about a horse drawn sleigh, and there's no mention of a reindeer at all.


I could just pretend that the horse is wearing a reindeer costume?

Ok, I'll get my coat ...
