So...This Happened.

I entered this really dorky horse contest wherein you entered by submitting a picture of you and your horse, and your horse's "song." Yes, some horse people give their horses songs, the way some couples have a song. I think the favorite horse/rider song I'd ever heard suggested was one woman who said her horse's song was "Straight Outta Compton".  Hilarity.

This was my entry:


And yes, yes, I won.

I am more than a little embarrassed about this.

Or at least I was until my prize came in the mail, and then my inner child was set free all over again:



Yes, that is a previously blogged about Breyer Horse . Yes, it is signed. By who you ask?  My childhood 3-Day Eventing heroes and Olympic Medalists, Karen and David O'Connor.

My fate as a total loser is sealed, and I just can't bring myself to worry about that. Too busy playing with Theodore.

Hey Wheelchair Lady, I believe your song would be U2's "Who's gonna ride your wild horses?" and coincidentally, the answer is me.

This is awesome! I am jealous. Also, after reading your other Breyer post, how did you convince your husband to have a shelf of Breyers? I'm finally pulling mine out because I have a three year old :)
