Waaay back when I started blogging in April 2008 I didn't know that it would come to this.  In fact I wasn't sure how long I'd be around... seems that a lot of bloggers burn out and call it quits. 
But here I am, my previous post was my 500th post!!
Along the way I've met some really great people, and while I may not meet them in person I do still consider them friends.
Besides friendship I've also found support, advice and entertainment.  

To celebrate this landmark I'm holding a giveaway. To enter answer the following in the comments:
1- What is your horse(s) name?
2- What is your favourite colour?
3- What are your hobbies?
4- Is your style bling bling or low-key?

As a bonus, when you comment if you're a follower of my blog you'll get TWO entries :)

Thanks for riding the trails of blogland with me.

Entries close this coming Sunday at midnight... winner will be announced next week.

    3. Riding, reading, my dogs, farming, tormenting my kids, riding, reading... Did I mention riding and reading?
    4. Both! I'd like more bling, but I tend to be more low-key and conservative. Or I have been in the past and am moving toward bling. Make sense?

    My hobbies are: horses, reading, knitting
    My bling style is: ...um.... semi-blingy??? For me, I like a bit of tasteful glitz and sparkle, I guess - I sure don't mind other folks sporting a lot of it, but past a certain point I always feel a bit self-conscious!
