500 eggs? That is almost an adventure by itself.
When my kids were little, we went to our church's Easter Egg Hunt one time. Too many kids; even before they got "sugared up," it was pandemonium, and waaaay too much for us sensitive souls. After that, we held our own egg hunts at home, with maybe a couple of friends. We even did them in the house when the weather was too nasty outside. The kids enjoyed them so much, they even talked me into hiding eggs when I didn't have anything to stuff them with - just figuring out where I'd hidden them was a rewarding enough game for them (for example, if you put a blue egg on top of a blue book, it can be hidden in plain sight)
But yes, The Blonde is definitely a horse of a different color - at least partly. I'm not about to try a whole body dye job, but that fluffy white mane and tail just seem to be asking to be played with, and Blondie is such a good sport about it (she gets 'paid' in carrots, so it works for her!)
