For the most part, I find it easy to stick to a daily blogging schedule. However, there are some days when I'm just too busy, too tired, too blue, too something to write a real post. On those occasions, I find myself debating the relative merits of skipping a day vs. publishing a marginal "filler" type post.
Today, I decided to go with filler.
Here are some scans of one of my most dog-eared issues of Just About Horses magazine. This particular edition (Volume XI, Number Four, published in 1985) contained several short articles that really captured my imagination. I especially liked the photo tour of Toll Free Farm.You know, I am forty three years old, and I still want to own this stable!
The On The Road... with MJW series was another favorite. I remember poring over the pictures and dreaming of my future showstring.
See, that cantering palomino with the Western saddle? I spent hours obsessing over her.
1980's era Just About Horses often featured a lot of fiction, and this issue is no exception. Most of the stories weren't particularly good, but I always liked this one.
After all, who wouldn't want to buy an amazing custom from a street vendor in New York City?
Well, that's it for today. Tomorrow I'll write a real post. Or not.
