On Second Thought . . .

On second thought, I think I'll keep this blog going on an occasional basis, when there's something horse, and something only a horseperson would care about - health/medical,  specific training/horsemanship stuff.  The other blog will have horses - of course - but in terms of their individual "horseness".  Think that'll work, we'll see.  I've got a post coming on what I'm learning through groundwork this week.

  1. Hi, Kate: If you are asking for opinions, here's mine. I would put everything on one blog. Readers can weed out what they are not interested in. When I started my blog several years ago, my masthead says, "News and views on quilting and the world at large from one very opinionated quilter". It's a potpourri of whatever I am interested in writing about on any given day. It features horses, quilting, skies, wildlife, and my favorite category "general nonsense". So, my vote would be for you to keep one blog (which I have listed on my blog's blog list). Several others have tried multiple blogs, with not much success. Whatever you decide to do, I'll stay with you. Good luck! Sharon

    1. Sharon - thanks for your thoughts. My thinking was that some of the folks that follow the horse themed blog - and I've strictly limited to horses - might or might not be interested in the other stuff. Also the other way around . . . Will think about it some more.

    2. I actually like having two blogs... one is for random whatever I want to write about and one is for the horses. I want the horse one to stay horses only because it's easier for me to go back and find something when I need to. It just suits my need for organization (what little I can find in my life). Just offering another perspective. I'll follow both, no matter what you decide, even if I "disappear" a lot because I can't find the time to read all of the blogs I follow. I catch up eventually. :D

  2. Ya I kinda agree with Sharon, sure some horse people might not be interested in whatever you are, but I have found more people are interested in your life and so they do like what others write even if its not horses. But this has been a strictly horse blog so up to you i guess, Ill miss reading here

  3. HI Kate - It's so interesting that you began posting again right at the point where I came back to start reading everyone's blogs again. Life's twists and turns haven't given me much time to follow the blogs the way I used to. And in my humble opinion, I would enjoy reading whatever you decided to write about, so if you do decide to not continue this blog, please let us know how to find the new one. And I want to thank you so much for your detailed descriptions of how you treated your horses when they had EPM. A close friend of mine has just been battling EPM with her beloved horse, so I printed out all of what you wrote about it for her to read and explore. And I'm happy to reconnect with you!

  5. I guess I'll weigh in with my thoughts. I think if you chose to expand the scope of this blog, you will keep your followers because we all know how our love for and interaction with horses affects the rest of our life. A good example is me getting a puppy to replace my ageing dogs so I can have a companion on the trails for more years. It's not just the horses we love, it's the stories about their people too. I do have a second blog, but it's strictly about my spiritual journey through life as defined by my Catholic faith- so only a very select group find it interesting.

  6. Hi Kate, apropos to nothing...just finished another Mark Rashid book. I'm so grateful to have heard about him and read his books which would never have happened if you hadn't written about him here. I just love them. And your blog. Thank you x
