I was Tagged by Gail Ragsdale http://artbygail.blogspot.com/ The rules of the Blogger's Tag game are: 1. put a link in your posting about the artist that tagged you. 2. write 6 -7 unusual things about yourself. 3. tag 4 - 7 other Bloggers and let them know. (Which I did when this was a new listing) Here are seven things you may not know about me: 1. I slept with the light on till I married. (That was because I didn't like the Dark, terrorised by much older Sister). 2. When I was at Pony Club Camp, If I had to go to the Loo tent in the woods, in the middle of the night. I would wake my friend Helen up(She never really woke up actually, I'm sure), to take her with me, I'd prop her against a tree while I used the facilities, then walk her back to our team tent, and her camp bed. 3. I was born at St.Mary's hospital, my Mother couldn't think of a name for me, so the nurse suggested Linda. & 4. It was snowing when I was born. 5. I like to eat vanilla Icecream,or cornish, with plain chocolate digestive biscuits crunched into it, and I have to eat it out of a cup or mug, I dont know why, I just like it. 6. The first Pony I actually owned was named 'Toreador', a Chocolate Dun little New Forest pony, who was so fast,& adept at jumping he wasn't caught by the foresters to sell, till he was 5yrs old. 7. When we were very young children, my friend Frances and I had a string each of sock hobby horses. We were very proud of them, and wouldn't let anyone else, ride them. They were stabled in her Grandparent's garden shed.
On a very Sad, and unbelievable note of despair grabbed me as I read about The Nevada Horse Slaughter in one of the Posts, on the Blogsite 'Heart Break Ranch'. http://www.breakheartranch.com/ I find it hard to even contemplate how people can treat animals in this way, I actually broke out in a sweat.. Heart Break Ranch's site is also full of wonderful stories and happy photographs of the animals they have rescued, they do an incredibly worthy job. Please visit their site, & Donate if You Can.
Here is one of the Prizes you could have won, Its a Small Purse Mirror, and a Large Fridge/Office Magnet donated by myself(Artwolf) , two other fantastic prizes were donated by Jennifer (gypsymarestudios), & Dale Anne(delarennaisance http://whoateam.blogspot.com/ winners were... The first name she pulled from the hat, and the winner of my own gift, belonged to Solitaire Mare.The second name, winner of Dale Ann's lovely ACEO prints, is Kitty Forseth. The third name and winner of the pretty Gypsy Mare Studios pendant is Meghann.
Mrs. Noah's Fabulous Ark a Children's Story It was a complete surprise I was checking the treasury, and bingo, it was opening in less than a minute, so in a panic, I'd taken the title from a little childrens story of mine, and enlisted all the fabulous Whoa Team artists to fill Mrs.Noah's Ark. Many of these artists produce work other than their outstanding horse images ,which are the only ones that officially carry the 'whoa team' tag.
