Welcome to the 2014 July Blog Carnival of Horses

Carousel HorseWelcome to the 2014 July Blog Carnival of Horses. I’m sorry to be posting a bit late this month, but we had severe weather here and my Internet connection was down for awhile. I hope you enjoy the posts below as much as I have. I especially love My Freebie, as Lauren was brave enough to put some numbers (or equivalents) around what we all know is more than we’d care to admit.

Thank you to all the bloggers who send in their excellent posts!

Welcome to the June 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Blog Carnival of HorsessWelcome to the June 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses! We have some great blog posts lined up for this month. In fact, with the last leg of the Triple Crown coming up on Saturday, the spotlight is really on the equine community and so many of us bloggers are rooting for him! It’s hard to believe that so many young(er) equestrians haven’t experienced a Triple Crown win in their lifetime, while I was privileged to watch both Affirmed and Secretariat gallop home to victory.

Here are this month’s posts — enjoy!

Martine presents Joucas Equifeel, Part 1 and Joucas Equifeel, Part 2 posted at Tails From Provence.

Isa presents Performing the Horse posted at Horses for Discourses saying: “

The idea that Australians have a special and significant relationship with the horse has been around for a long time. From the 19th century poetry of ‘Banjo’ Patterson to the figure of the stockman in the opening ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the horse features strongly in constructions of Australian national identity. The ‘Horses for discourses’ blog is a place to discuss some of these ideas.

I am a PhD student at the Australian National University in Canberra, and I really enjoy chasing tangents! While the distractions I post on here may not be directly related to my PhD research, they nonetheless allow me to encounter different ideas, which help in shaping my thoughts.”

Whiskey Ranch-Horse presents The Latest Buzz posted at County Island.

Suzanne presents Ghosts of Injuries Past posted at Confessions of an AA Event Rider and Convicted Overthinker.

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.”
