And the Winners are.....

For the first wonderful prize, the 4x6 faux leather picture frame.

I put all the names of the people who left a comment into a bowl. And I shook and stirred them up. Then I asked for my lovely assistant to come and help choose a winner. In when Little Cowpoke's hand. I felt it was fair if he could see what he was doing being that he does not know how to read. When he reached in he moved the names around and around. Then out came the name. Can you read that? Little Cowpoke is a bit cross eyed.Can you read it now?Well, I will help you all out if you can't read what the little paper says. Congrats goes to Brown Eyed Cowgirls! Yeah! And now for the second winner. The winner of the Burt Bees hand cream. To win this fabulous prize, you had to try and come up with a name for our mare, Blaze. There were a lot of fun ones. Thank you everyone for your ideas. But the name that Mr. Cowboy liked the best was......"Lil Bit of Blaze." And the fun creative gal who came up with that name is KD over at Zambito Oaks Farm. Thank you every one for being apart of my contest. This was so much fun and I will have to do it again soon! If you have won, just email me your address and I will send you off your wonderful prize!

Update on the Sale Barn Gelding. Mr. Dallas, the horse trader, called yesterday and said that if we want the horse that we can buy it for $375. But only this week. If we wait until next week the price will go back up. He said they have been riding the gelding and he is fine. Dallas said he is feeling generous and has 21 horses at his place right now and he needs to thin out his herd. Of coarse he is at the sale barn today too! He must want to buy one today. But that is alright. Mr. Dallas does a great job saving horses from the Kill Buyer. He gives them jobs and then finds them homes. So, tomorrow Mr. Cowboy and I are going to drive over to Mr. Dallas's barn and pick up our little gelding. Oh, I am so excited about him. And it makes me feel a lot better that everyone else has trouble with their horses being barn sour too. I will take pictures and then I will do a poll for a name for him. I am really excited. So, if you all have any suggestions for a small sorrel gelding, let me know. Some names off the top of my head are, Sarg, Trooper, Ranger, Dundee, and Vern. I like Vern. My husband thinks I am weird because I want to name a horse Vern. I am sure the Cowpokes will veto my name.

Congratulations BEC and KD!! Cool prizes!

Hopefully you get the Sale Barn Gelding...he sounds just perfect for kidlets!

I read over at Fugly Horse, that they were giving horses away in the parking lot of our local sale barn...so sad!

I love the name Vern--makes me think of that ol dude: Ernest P. Worrell saying, "What up, Vern?" Hope I didn't just kill that for you, but hey, if this is a good kid horse, and those were good kid movies, then there ya go. Makes perfect sense.

KD said...

People are gonna start thinking I am bribing you guys. First TrainWreck's naming contest, then CdnCowgirl's drawing for the cute little sign and now this very nice picture frame!!

Woohooo-I think I need to head to Vegas, I have never been so lucky in my life!! Thanks Andrea.

I do like the name you picked for Blaze. I'm so not good at naming horses I don't "know". Congrats to kd!!

Glad you went ahead with getting the gelding-that is just too good a deal to pass up!

Hi there! Congratulations on the new horse - it's always so much fun getting a new horse. I'm sure he'll be a nice addition to your family. I've visited your blog a time or two but never commented before. But...just had to put in my 2 cents - I love the name Vern!! I can never name anybody until I meet them and get to know their personality; then something just pops into my head and that's it! Have fun and good luck with the new pony -
