Countdown

In about two weeks time, this blog should receive its one millionth page view.
A lot of blogs have reached this particular milestone, but I suspect that mine is the first model horse blog to do so.
Model horsey!
To celebrate, I've decided to hold another raffle.  From now until the moment when the Total Pageviews counter reads 1,000,000, 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, but I promise, it will be something big.
The big box contained a gift card.  Sometimes mama is soooo funny.
Good luck to all, and thanks for reading!

  1. Congrats! I'm not even in the hobby anymore and I love your blog - because it's not just a good hobby blog, but a good horse blog in general. Others are taking notice too, I saw some of your photos (credited with a link back to this blog) on a major horse blog as examples of beautiful braiding.

  7. Thanks, everyone but especially to Lauren. I appreciate all my readers, but I am extra flattered when non-hobbyists tell me they love my blog. Makes me feel like I'm doing something right!

    (BTW--which blog posted a link to my braiding post? I'd be interested in seeing that.)

    Also, if you're posting anonymously, please be sure to sign a name (and an email address would be nice, too!).
