A lot of us here reckon her "Cowboy hat" from the WCID clip was one of Cazz's best looks and it appears a fan back in 99 seems to have taken that a step further.
The Corrs were often on the receiving end of gifts from fans (one wonders the eventual whereabouts of the legion of teddybears Andrea received !!). I'd heard reports that Caro would on occaision adopt a mascot who would sit on top of her kit.
I've gone looking for evidence and have found some clips from May 99 (Concert Basico, Madrid). If you look carefully, you will see a doll on the front of Caro's kit in her WCID outfit (red T-shirt & "the hat"). She must have appreciated the gesture and obviously appealed to her sense of humour.

Oh wow! Good observation! I don't think that I ever noticed that "WCID Caroline" doll on the drumkit. Looks like a lot of effort went into making that one. There is also a view of it when Caro is introduced during the "I Never Loved You Anyway" band intros.
Good job and good observation Wombat; if you are as an observer in your business you must be a very good lawyer; does not always give you our very good information, I never paid attention to it; If not Caroline cow-girl in the fact that, right?
Apparently, it (and it's outfit) was handmade by an American fan (as part of a full set of dolls for all the sibs) that were given to them before a concert at the Fillmore in San Francisco. The link DID originally have photos of the Corrs and their dolls but they seem to have been lost. ALL the dolls were on stage and on show at this particular concert (including Jim's on his keyboard) so it seems that they WERE appreciated.
Caro definitely seems to have became attached to her "cowgirl mascot" as it was proudly perched on her kit at a number of concerts such as the House of Blues in LA a week later, the Wollaston Park gig in Nottingham in May 99 and the Madrid gig (of which we have clips).
