Snapshot Saturday #1

I have been thinking about adding a personal addition to my blog and when I saw this contest, I knew that I could enter and introduce my readers to something new and non-bookish at the same time.  Don't get me wrong, I love posting book reviews and anything to do with books, but I also love a good contest and want my readers to know more about me, the blogger.

5 Minutes for Mom is hosting a Horsing Around Photo Contest.  Hello?  I'm all about horses, or didn't you know that?  We raise them, so of course I'm entering this.  The theme of the contest is “horsing around” and you can interpret that as children playing or take it more literally and let your photo display an equestrian theme.  They are giving away 3 rocking horses donated by A Rocking Horse to Love.  Entries are being accepted until Feb. 6th, when they will choose about 20 finalists that will be posted on Feb. 10th.  Readers will then vote for their favorite, so know that if my picture is chosen, I will be asking for your votes.  You can even go there now and comment on the post, recommending that I be chosen as a finalist.  My brother and his wife are expecting in March and this would be a great gift for my first nephew!

This picture is of my oldest grandaughter.  We had put a round bale of hay out in the pasture for the mares, and they had been eating on it for a few days.  She was here for the weekend and while helping her Papa feed, noticed the hole in the bale, so she sat down.  I just happened to have the camera and caught her.

What does this have to do with a new addition to my blog?  Every Saturday, I will post a picture from my many albums.  Why, you ask?  Even though my passion is books and reading, I enjoy photography and want to share that with you as well.  You can participate too, on your blog, and leave the link in the comments for others to see.  So many times readers don't know the blogger behind the blog and this is my way of sharing myself with you, on a different level.  Won't you join my in Snapshot Saturday?

She surely does look a sweetheart. I know you intend the rocking horse for your nephew to be, but my comment at 5 Minutes was designed to intrigue people into checking your post. I hope it works for you!
