Friendship Award

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Horseypants sent me this sweet award. She's a doll and if you haven't discovered her blog, take a little time to give it a read.

I appreciate the affirmation of friendship. I'll admit I'm not the best blogger when it comes to following up on the comments of those who take the time to read and comment on my postings. But I do appreciate that there are folks out there who read me and like to comment. I have made a few friends here whose opinion I give credit to and others who's viewpoints encourage me to stay true to my own. I know lately the tone of my blog hasn't always been positive but that's life.

So, I'm passing this award on to the following fellow bloggers. I know some of you have already received this award but I'm giving it to you anyway, to let you know that your input and interest really does mean a lot to me. And to let you know that I stop by your blog almost every day to see what's new and know how you're doing.

A Horse and a Half
Oh, Horsefeathers
Behind the Bit
Glenshee Equestrian Center
Horses of Follywoods
Lucchese to Louis Vuitton
Riding Aside
Where's my Effing Pony?

There are others I know I should add to the list but I'm sure if it doesn't come from me, it will most certainly come from another blogger. It's a big blog world but surprisingly close!

Thank you Solitaremare! This means a lot coming from you, a fellow Tundra Country gal. ;)

Cowgirl Up- things ARE going to work out most fantastically for you on the horse front. I KNOW it.

THANK you sweetie! You beautiful girl you...your friendship means the world to me, I hope you know that. I have been so busy with the rodeo for the last almost three weeks that I have not had a chance to visit anyone and leave them any comment love, but I promise to do better!

THANKS again I can't wait to share this one with my fellow bloggers!

Affirmation of friendship INDEED.

YOU rock!

Thank you so much for the lovely award. I really appreciate the kind words and your kind comments.

I've been enjoying reading your blog and managed to catch up on a few of the earlier posts so now I know a bit more about the background story of "A Good Horse." It explains a lot about how hard this new search is for you.

I am wishing you all the best in finding someone to replace Monty in both your barn and your heart. I know the ache you feel, and I can tell you, there is another good horse out there meant just for you.

And remember too, our horses are as good as we make them so if you find one that's not so perfect sneaking into your soul, consider that you will make him/her into the horse you want with just a little extra effort. (Might post a bit about this on my blog soon. It's a good topic.)

Hugs and thanks again.

Thank you Solitairemare. I have the warm and fuzzies just thinking about it. The last thing I remember winning was second place in the Egg-and-Spoon Race at school. I would have won First,(according to family lore) but, after the little girl with red hair crossed into my lane in front of me, I am told I completed the race repeating "excuse me please, excuse me please" Damn those manners.
