A Welcome Back Contest!!!

I am honoring my return to blogging with a fun contest for you!


There is a new horse on the ranch, a little sorrel Quarter Horse/Morgan mare named "Ruby."

After a month on the ranch, Ruby started getting fatter.....and fatter.....and fatter. Hmmm...... a vet check confirmed that yes, this mare is indeed very much in foal, unbeknowest to her owners. She was purchased from someone who was selling her for a friend.....you know the story. The fact that she was in foal was an "oops."

Miss Ruby will be foaling any time in the next month.

So here is the contest. Having NO IDEA who the sire is, this will truly be a mystery foal!

All you have to do to enter is guess the following:

    1) What gender will the foal be?
2) What color will the foal be?

If you get just one of the two right, you will be entered once. If you get two right, you will be entered twice. A winner will be drawn from all qualifying entries.

What is the prize? Well.....my Ranch Boy makes the most amazing barnwood picture frames out of vintage barnwood taken from an old homestead. So yep, the lucky winner gets a handmade frame similar to the one below!


You've got to enter quick, there is not time to waste- Ruby could foal any day!



Oh- just for kicks, if you do a post telling others about this contest on your blog, please stop in and leave another comment letting me know you did, and I'll toss your name in for an extra entry!!

Thanks everyone, have fun!  I can't wait to start filling you in on all the fun going-ons in my life!

Chestnut is pretty dominant, so I'll guess that the foal will be a chestnut colt. Congratulations on the new blog.
