Better late than never... contest results!!

My apologies for keeping you all waiting for the results of the "Be All That We Can Be" in honor of the olympics contest. I've had a couple of trying weeks punctuated by several excessively drama filled days. If bad things indeed come in threes - we're finished now.

Thanks so much to everyone who entered our contest. If you haven't visited the page with the entries yet - go check it out!

On to the random selection of the winners... 

Val was kind enough to help me out...

Yes - that's his tongue...
Uh oh - he's eating it!

It was almost a disaster, as Val tried to swallow one of the folded up numbers and I had to "retrieve" it! Anyhow - drum roll please - the winners of the Dressage Is  #1 foam fingers are -

Congratulations! If there is not an email address on your blog - please leave one in the comments for me, and I'll contact you about sending your prize along.

I have a consolation prize for the other contestants as well. I designed a little badge you can put on your sidebar - leave me an email in the comments  and I'll send it along.


  1. HAHAHAHA!!!! I was laughing hysterically with Val drawing the-what looked like Origami folded- numbers from the vase! Oh man, that was too good C!

    I adore the Badge and will display it with honor and link to YOU!
    Thanks for always bringing a smile to my face and heart, as well as tasty tidbits of usable riding knowledge and fun!

  2. Well, gosh, um, shucks...thanks so much. I really don't win contests all that often. And my thanks to Val for helping pick Dusty. I'll let her know another big handsome guy's got her number. Thanks again. Glad he didn't swallow that paper by the way.

  3. Val is just the sweetest helper ever! I adore your horse!

  4. Congrads to the winners... but frankly, I am more impressed with Val's ability to select individual papers from a vase. Is this a talent he comes by naturally, or did you have to use carrot-flavored paper or something?

  5. Way to go, Val! Our boys would probably destroy the vase.

  6. Congrats to the winners! I had already purchased one from Smartpak so I had to abstain. It's now in my living room right next to the TV, fortunately my cats haven't decided to tear it up (yet).

  7. What a beautiful 'drawing' system you created. Such beautifully folded entries. I love the pictures of Val picking winners.


I love, love, love my readers, and knowing that you've stopped by - it really makes my day.

However, to avoid the new illegible blogger word verification, I've added comment moderation. Lesser of two evils.

Please don't let this stop you - keep those comments coming!! :)
