Thanks Ms. Martyr!

For my award:

OK so the rules are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award

2. Share 7 things about yourself

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers

4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

So this may take me a while but here we go...

Already covered the first part of #1 in the title so for the second part...

So, seven things, hmm.

Thing #1: I have blue, blue, blue eyes. They don't SEE very well unfortunately, but they LOOK great :) - at least, that's what I am constantly told... {grin}. In case you didn't know, I LIKE having blue eyes!

Thing #2: I would give ANYTHING to have naturally curly hair!!!

Thing #3: In the beginning, I was a donkey admirer. Then I got my own and I was a donkey lover. Then I got more and more, and I was a donkey addict. Now I breed them, AND rescue them, and in selling my babies and adopting out my rescues, I have become a donkey PUSHER!

Thing #4: I started endurance riding last January - next week it will be a year ago. I started it thinking that riding 25 miles in 5 hours was a small price to pay for NOT missing out on camping with my friends... I sure didn't expect to enjoy it! After my first ride, I was like a fish on a line, and now I'm hooked and I can't get enough...

Thing #5: I have been to Europe once, Mexico twice, and Maui three times. I have not been to Australia but that is on my bucket list! I have never been on a cruise either, also definitely on my bucket list!

Thing #6: My girls have things a little backwards. I have all 3 in college, 2 aiming for nursing and 1 to be a veterinarian. Which is nice because my own kids can take care of me AND my animals. But since there is only one of me and I have so many animals, I think the girls have things turned around, don't you?

Thing #7: Quite honestly it was probably bad JUDGMENT but I prefer to claim that I had bad LUCK with men for 20 years, before I found a good one (yes Randy). So... I have been married three times. Randy and I are coming up on our 11th anniversary, which is longer than both of the others put together. THANK GOD!!!!! I will probably never have a 75th Anniversary, heck probably not even a 50th Anniversary, but I will take whatever I can get with this one!!!

Ok that wasn't so bad...

Now for 15 bloggers... notice I did NOT say "recently discovered" because I am limited on time to discover new blogs so I am going to ignore that part and just pick some of my favorites ;) - oh, if I hadn't gotten this award FROM Ms. Martyr, she would be on the list, but... NO REPEATS! And except for #1 because without her I wouldn't be blogging, they are in no particular order...

1. This One nagged me until I started my own blog

2. #1 also nagged This One until she started her own blog

3. This One is a member on my favorite horse forum, AzBCR

4. And so is This One

5. This One touched my heart

6. This One makes me laugh so hard I almost pee my pants

7. This One is a neighbor

8. And so is This One

9. This One is a fellow donkey lover

10. This One takes the most AWESOME pictures

11. This One does amazing things with donkeys

12. This One is THE donkey man

13. This One has some amazing stories

14. Then there is This One

15. And last but not least, This One

So I'm gonna go ahead and post this - I haven't done #4 YET but I will, I swear I will!!!

Thanks, Susan. I'm very lucky that Mikey nagged me. I'm very lucky that you egged me on. I've often thought that blogging saved me during the rough times...and look at the friends I've met! There's no one I'd rather watch a plane crash with than you!
