|charlie wants your stories!!!! (and your smooches)|
- Review your assigned BINGO! cards and choose a hypothetical winning path (as in, a full row, full column, or diagonal line from the card).
- Write a story about how the blocks in your winning path might come to pass in real life with your horse (or any horse!).
- Publish said story in any of the following ways by 3/15/2017:
- Post on your blog if you have one (ideal if the story comes with pictures/illustrations/visual representations)
- Post in the comments of the new dedicated EVENTING BINGO page
- Or email it to fraidycat.eventing at gmail and I will publish it for you
I currently have entries from the following group of five (plus a few others have let me know their stories are coming today - exciting!!). This means tho that the chances of winning that gift card are pretty high for all involved, so get those stories in!
The above linked stories include everything from nefarious water fowl, jeering Miami Dolphins fans, and dressage ring teleportation, to manure-splattered white breeches and high-flying mules. Click the above links to read!!
Some of the participating bloggers this year include Liz, TeresaA, Leah, and Grace, tho perhaps there are others - feel free to link below in the comments section if I missed your review!
|apologies for slight blur. this is a clear representative shot of the hardware, stitching, and materials. that lighter blue material is BRIGHT|
|snazzy matching flat lead! probably not suitable for tying the horse but is otherwise a standard flat lead. that matches.|
|yep that fits!|
|did i mention that blue is BRIGHT?|
Pretty sure that blue might actually be day-glo tho haha. Charlie doesn't wear his halter out in the field but if he did, I'd never have to worry about finding him in the darkness ever again lol. The color definitely stands out!
|such a sweet face! wish i hadn't chopped his nose off tho haha|
I also like that the material doesn't fade and is easy to clean (use your hose, washing machine, or even your freakin dishwasher -- beta biothane don't care!).
|easy to pick out of a pile lol|
Oh. OH. And. Haha. There's one other thing about it that gives me a sick sense of joy: The style is decidedly..... not traditional or classic - especially not in the h/j sense of the word. Considering Charlie lives at a farm where everyone strictly uses white saddle pads (even colorful trim is discouraged!) I've found myself edging slowly in the opposite direction: Bling all the things, Wear all the colors, Shock all the sensibilities!!
|SPACE CATS TOO|
Obviously I'm talking about the SPACE CATS C4 belt Stephanie gave me for the 2016 equestrian blogger gift exchange. And these sweet blue Montar breeches I picked up at Dressage at Devon last year at The Horse of Course's shop (not coincidentally also while visiting Stephanie!).
|nasty winter weather means getting creative with arena turnout and makeshift stalls lol|
Bc in the meantime we're all just hunkering down here while all of winter condenses itself into one week. Boo, March. Boo. At least Charlie gets to be reunited with his friends in the indoor haha. Poor guy has been switched to solo daytime turnout bc it's just been too cold for his delicate constitution to be out overnight with his usual herd.... #hesawimp
|charlie is very happy to be "out" with his friends ... even if they kinda give him the cold shoulder lol|
Anyway tho. Don't forget to get in your Eventing BINGO! stories if you're playing along too.
