Welcome to the April 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Blog Carnival of HorsesWell, the Blog Carnival page has been down — starting 15 minutes after I posted the request for submissions, so if you article is stuck in the limbo of that platform, I apologize for not posting it in this issue. I hope that sooner, rather than later, they will get their act together and keep the site up for 30 or 31 continuous days.

In the meantime, please enjoy these hand-collected posts!

Welcome to the March 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Blog Carnival of HorsesDespite technical problems with the Carnival platform, we got some great posts for this month’s Carnival. I love seeing some new blogs represented here, along with some old favorites. So, welcome to the March 5th edition of the Blog Carnival of Horses.

Having been frozen out of riding most of the last month, it seems like reading about riding is going to be my best bet. I hope you are living in a place a bit more amenable than New England!

I found the post on How to Publish Your Horse Book of particular interest as I’ve been working on my equestrian-themed novel for a couple of years now. I’m almost finished with the first draft and starting to wonder what to do next. And I absolutely LOVE the photo on the post about floating a horse’s teeth. I’ve never been able to get a photo as good as that when our tooth fairy comes to the barn.

Welcome to the January 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Carousel HorseWelcome to the January 5, 2014 edition of carnival of the horses. As we kick of the new year, this should be the first of many excellent editions!

Some of the posts are about New Year’s Resolutions. My favorite so far is the simplest: Ride more!

Here’s to happy trails in 2014!

Janet presents Happy Holidays from the Herd posted at Sassy Sisters Ink, saying,”We are a mother/daughter team who have acquired a lovely little herd, most of them gypsy vanners.  In fact, all but one are gypsies!  I, Janet, am the mom and Sara is the daughter.  We love and enjoy our horses who serve primarily as very large pets!  I write the blog posts which provide a tongue-in-cheek account of our daily doings.  While the post we selected gives a hint at the humor, we chose that one because it includes all of our horses.  For a better look at our antics, check here:   The Mailman Came.

Dawn presents Horseman’s Prayer of Praise posted at Soul Horse Ride.

Christine Meunier presents A Blue Million Books: Featured Author: Christine Meunier posted at A Blue Million Books, saying, “Author Christine Meunier shares excerpts from the first two novels in her newly released ‘Free Rein’ series.”

Please read, and then contact your representatives to let them know what the facts actually are and your own position.”

DawnHoof / DawnSeeker presents Horseman’s Prayer of Praise | SoulHorseRide posted at SoulHorseRide, saying, “Take a Ride Inside . . . Ride along with me and my four generations of home-bred, home-raised horses. Join me for either an actual Ride, or enjoy a Virtual Ride — from the comfort of your computer.”
