Giveaway!

Happy Monday!!

I definitely know how to perk up a monday....by having a giveaway!!

This is truthfully not my giveaway, its Cindy's over at Life With my Herd, but it is my turn to host the giveaway.

The item I have to give away are two books.  One is called Horsepower, and its an absolutely beautiful book about an older Belgian Draft that is given a new home, and the wonderful joy he brought his new owner.  (The woman in the book reminds me a lot of Linda over at 7MSN if you don't read her blog, check it out, she's hilarious!).  


The second book is wonderful in a different way.  It is called Horse Of The Storm, and its a book that chronicles the weeks following Hurricane Katrina, and how horses were rescued, and how sometimes they weren't.  While it was heartbreaking, it was also amazing to hear of the special survival stories, and not to mention the people that spent so much time and effort to rescue these animals!  They are often forgotten, but they put in weeks of no sleep and straight work to rescue all sorts of animals! That is some heart! 


So, these are both wonderful books that I really enjoyed, and I am ready to send them on to someone else to love! 


What we ask is that after you read the books, you continue to host your own giveaway and pass it on to a fellow blogger! 

To enter, please comment on this post telling me your favorite breed or coloring of horse :) 
(even though we all know its about personality not color!)

Personally, I love a leopard appy :)

    1. Roans are so pretty, especially a varnish roan. I can't wait until Pony sheds out more and is more roany :)

  3. Ooh, I love that you love Leopard Appys!! They are beautiful...to pick a favorite breed is just impossible for me. I love so many. So, I'll choose a beautiful, richly colored Bay horse. That's always been my hands down favorite, but like breeds, I admire so many colors and think just about all horses are beautiful. Especially those spotty-bodies!! :)

    1. Teehee, my friend that is a red head and has a lot of freckles wanted to buy an appy for demeanor but didn't want to look like her horse...she found an unmarked appy!

    1. Bay horses can be gorgeous! Especially when they're sleek and lean and shiny!

  6. Mustangs are my favorite and appaloosas are a close second. Recently I thought I could try owning something other than a mustang fresh off the range, and I found I just don't want a horse that comes with someone else's baggage. I also don't really enjoy spending time with horses I've raised from foals. I guess I spoil them. Give me a wild one any day.

    Colors - I like red dun, my best horse was that color. I also like bays with lighter brown around the muzzle. I love a frame overo like Hidalgo. And varnish roan appies really make me happy, although I think they commonly have eye problems. The only color I'm really not partial to is a black and white paint. I don't know why.

    1. Varnish roans are SO pretty! I'm with you, I like mostly any color haha. I have ridden a black and white paint, and it was the smartest pain in my ass I have ever met.
