No tiger blood here, but apparently we're lucky!!
Eagle, over at Thoroughly Yours was kind enough to pick Val's name out of a hat a couple of weeks ago for a "Yes to Carrots" contest sponsored by his blog. Eagle is a handsome, energetic and well spoken elder statesman of the thoroughbred world. I don't know how he has the time, but when he isn't galavanting around with his girl Jessica or keeping up with a strenuous west coast social calendar, he writes a very entertaining and clever blog. (There are fun little surprises here and there - try passing your cursor over the pictures) Well worth visiting :)
I picked up "our" package from the post office this afternoon on my way to the barn. It arrived beautifully gift wrapped...
I think at some point Val heard me say that the prize was carrot related (blah, blah, blah, C-A-R-R-O-T, blah blah)... Of course he assumed it was his. A horse prize. For horses. I had to gently break it to him that although carrot-related, it was not technically carrots. Or even edible. Mine Val. All mine. I'll make it up to you buddy ;)
Botanical body care products + carrots = awesomeness. I can't wait to try these out. Thanks Eagle and Jessica!!
