Countdown

In about two weeks time, this blog should receive its two millionth page view.
The second million isn't nearly as exciting as the first...
but it's still worth celebrating.
So I've decided to hold another raffle.  From now until the moment when the Total Pageviews counter reads 2,000,000, every comment left on this blog will equal one raffle entry.  Old post, new post, multiple posts--it just doesn't matter.  All comments are created equal and all comments count.  The winner will get a custom tack item.  I haven't decided exactly what, and it might take me a while to deliver it, but someone will win something nice.
Anne Field's prize for the One Million Pageview raffle
Good luck to all, and thanks for reading!

  6. Another reader seeing this as an opportunity to trawl the blog again :P I don't comment much because of the problems I have logging in etc, as well as the fact that I get sucked in to reading and don't think to give my 'two cents', but every page view is well deserved - I can always rely on this blog when I need it!

  46. I love reading your blog and learning tack tips. Thanks too for having another raffle.

    ReplyDelete
  47. im not just saying this, but just about every comment posted here for this blogs entry, is how I think about you and your blog...it gives me the excitement of going through my school day or any other day, looking forward to reading whats next. everytime I reach it I get the exiting surge of feelings of what I will learn from the big pros of model horses. I am the newby trying to absorb and create similar things of your great works (but obviously using the cheap-cheapest materials I could find). you are truly an inspiration for me, and ive learned so much from your older posts, to present. since the day I was born, my life has revolved around horses, and ever since the time I was sat on the back of a horse, when I was only one years of age ive had a colossal obsession. now my obsession has branched out to the smaller version of them as well. and because of only you, ive learned a lot, and have ventured out onto the web exploring so many possibilities, like, the MH$P ,which I currently have not quite figured out, but have 2 ads! im sorry for such a long post, but Im finally able to express my feelings to you for in hopes you might finally read it. I admire your work greatly, and hope that one day I might own a piece of your work. another reason I visit your blog is because of your happy and humerous attitude that always brightens my day, and our shared similar fondness for equine...and that's why I love you! and im sorry again, for this miserably long comment, but thanks for everything and I will be continuing to read your wonderful blog. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE who wants to own a piece of your fine artwork. ~forever, and always, megan mankevich (PS: this is my first raffle!...even though I never win, im still excited! and PSS: congrats for 2OOOOOO!!!!)

  53. 1,977,096. I tried to comment the other day but it didn't take I guess. Arg. Any rate, what I was trying to say is that I look forward to every post. I appreciate the time you take to put these up and how inspirational and/or educational they are. A nice variety as well. Thank YOU!

  55. I read this post the other day but wasn't on my computer so couldn't comment. I LOVE seeing how many more comments you get when you are holding a raffle. I hope I win again. I fully expect if I do you should give the tack to someone who wouldn't otherwise be able to get any of your tack. But I want to know about it. I just CAN'T be that lucky!

  56. I hope ill be able to take another screen shot of that number!!
