A celebration seems due

It IS May Day, after all, and on top of that, this is my 1500th post! (Squee in delight or screech in horror, whichever seems most appropriate to you. (-; ) I think this will also be my last post from my old laptop; I'm installing software on my new laptop as I type, and then need to transfer my files over as well.

SO! A little drawing seems in order. (I wish I could send something to every single one of you; if wishes were horses I could send you all a big bag of fertilizer – heh!) Comment here by midnight, May 6 (or send me an email using the link at right, if commenting is problematic) and I will put your name in the hat for some little treats. Post this on your blog with a link back here and I'll put your name in twice! The randomly drawn winner will get a bag of Bali's Best Tea Candy (choose Citrus Green Tea, Classic Iced Tea, or Green Tea Latte), a wee mini-raglan sweater to hang from your rearview mirror or Christmas tree, a set of four photo notecards (choose from flower or sheepy themes), and your choice of some surprise fiber or yarn (not necessarily Shetland or homespun; preferences considered). I might throw in some other little surprises, too; who knows!

I want each of you to know that having you along for the ride is at least half the fun (especially if you comment (-; ).

Happy May Day from . . .

(((congratulations))) I've so enjoyed your blog. You can thank your friend the Crazy Sheep Lady for having you on her blog role, 'cause that's how I found you.

I never, and I mean NEVER miss a day of your blog Michelle. Your pictures are eye candy and your commentary is always fun and interesting. Any lady that loves sheep and horses as much as I do is pretty ok in my book. Linking to my blog too, so throw me in twice!!!

Michelle, you have been part of my journey with shetlands since before I got my first sheep. Came for the sheep; stayed for the good company. Thanks! - M

Wow...that's a lot of writing, photos and whatnot! I love reading a blog written by someone who lives in the Oregon crazy weather like me.

I read your blog every morning to start my day. Found you through the crazy sheep lady and haven't been disapointed. Love the Dances With Horses blog also. We raised Quarter Horses and ran a training/boarding facility some years ago.
