hobby horse blog hop #12

Here are the rules:
Answer one or all of the prompts. Link back to Living a Dream's post. Visit other blogs. And don't forget to ask a question of everyone else!

This week we are asked about some of our "firsts". This might include:

  • pony
  • pet
  • child
  • riding lesson
  • job
  • home-cooked meal
  • speeding ticket
  • ??? You decide! Anything goes!
I'd love to hear (and see) you first blog post. Who, or what, got you started in blogging? When was your first post? If you care to, link to it for us!

Well, it is pretty obvious that Shyloh is my first horse. And we are going to our first show on Sunday, hopefully getting a first place ribbon! HA!

My first pet was already a household member when I was born. His name was Frisky and he was one of those smaller black poodles. I do not remember too much about him.

My first job was as a park leader for my city's parks and recreation department. That was an awesome job. I had a park I worked and I did activities with the kids that came to the park.

My first car was a 1991 blue Ford Tempo. I loved that car! It represented freedom and a lot of fun times.

My first car accident was on Christmas eve, a few months after I got my first car. Just a fender bender, but it was scary for me!

My first house it the one me and my husband currently live in. It works for us now and we are happy there, but one day we would like to move into a house that has some property. Maybe a with creek or on a river, definitely a large front porch, more than one bathroom, and a walk in closet.

My first blog post was Tomorrow is the Big Day! in July 2011. I had thought I was getting Shy the next day, but I still had to wait a little longer. I had a blog before this one (it's no longer published), but Robin gave me the idea to start a blog about Shyloh. At first, I didn't want anyone to read it, it was just going to be a journal about me and Shy. But then I discovered other blogs, and blogs about Haflingers, and blogs about horses.

My question: Any other firsts you would like to know about me? What are any interesting firsts you have? Join the hop and share!


  1. Thanks for hopping on board! Thanks for the inspiration for this week's hop! I can't wait to hear about your first show! Win or lose, (that sounds awful!)... win, or 'not win' (?).... win or ????... it will be an awesome experience!

  2. My apologies for spelling Shyloh's name incorrectly. It's fixed now!

  3. I don't know that I will ever show, but I can't wait to hear about yours!

    1. I had previously mentioned that I never wanted to show, but the draft circuit is very laid back. As long as it is fun for Shy and me, we will do it! It's good a good experience for both of us.

  4. Aww I've been missing the blog hop! I'll have to try to get back into it. :D
