Ring out the Old, Ring in the New

The Old


The New

I won a giveaway from Michelle at A Horse and a Half.  It is a 2013 calendar starring her horse, Mexican General.

Michelle rocks.  Gen is retired, but she loves him every bit as much as she did back in his glory days.  That's the way it should be.

Michelle and Gen

I'm proud to have Michelle for a blogger friend, and I'm proud to display Gen's calendar in my tack room.

I have a new camera, and it's more advanced than I am.  I haven't quite figured out the focus.  See how nice and sharp the coat rack is?  The rest of the picture, not so much.  Bear with me - it will get better.  It came with an instruction booklet.

Your picture with the very-in-focus coat rack is wonderful. You win the prize for the cleanest tack room, ever!

Love your new calendar...General is one handsome boy. What kind of a camera did you get? I'm going to have to find Michelle's blog.

What a lovely calendar, Gen is such a beautiful gentleman..
Good luck with the new camera, I received a new one too, I'm afraid to open the box :)
Happy New Year to you and yours ~

Lucky you winning a Gen calendar, and getting a new camera too! Can't wait to see what you do with it. :D

Wow, I LOVE your coatrack, and your tackroom is waaaay to clean! I'm jealous!

Good luck with your new camera! Gen is a pretty horse, and what fun to have his calendar for the year. De-decorating, oh joy! I'm putting it off to the weekend. Have a good day.

Awww...thanks! I do love my Gen every bit as much as when he was my champion. I think that everyone who knows Gen these days loves him though because he is such a charmer. And I think your picture looks great...I don't know how you stand my blog if you think that is out of focus! Thank you again for your shout out and Gen and I are both very honored to have his calendar hung in such a clean tack room! I feel lucky to know you as well and I still remind myself when I get frustrated of the story you shared with me about having the right horse, not the flashy horse!

Too exciting Terry...more picture and don't forget you can delete the wonky ones.

I won an Irish calendar from Mairead at Irishamericanmom!
Since we both won calendars, let's say that means we will have a lucky year for us both, what do you say? :-)

That is a very fancy tack room! I love it.

Inger said...

Your tack room is so neat and the calendar is beautiful. What a gorgeous horse. Congrats on the new camera.

That is miles away from the cold scruffy tack rooms of my youth!!! Hope the camera is easy to work out - I went to buy a new one and the choice alone was stressful enough to put me off!!

Awesome calender :)
Yay about the camera and good luck with figuring it out.
