Photo Caption Contest

My Boot Boy is doing okay. He's still sore on that hoof, I soaked it today and hope to do more thorough soakings when the weekend arrives to get the rest of that abscess to drain. He was a good boy for all the boot pulling off and on, which was easier than I thought. The vet thought he should be feeling better by the weekend. I hope so, I hope to get this taken care of without another vet visit.

Now that things (my emotions!) have settled down and my horse appears to be on the path to recovering, I wanted to tell you about a fun idea I had before all of this abscess craziness started. I have never done anything like this but I found the cutest cowboy western holiday ornaments last week (hard to believe it's almost holiday time again!) and I picked up a couple for gifts. Then I thought, why not offer a gift to my blogger friends? The particular ornament will be a surprise and I will share the ornament via photo on the blog when I announce the winner.

Then, I had to think of a contest. about, "Best written for sale ad for my hard to catch horse?" I kid, I kid!

Then I remembered the random series of photos I took of My Boy while hanging out with him last Saturday. You can switch the order of the photos as I posted them to fit your My Boy story and captions, just label each photo before your caption (i.e., Photo 3- caption, Photo 1-caption, etc.) Please share your three captions for the photos in the comments section. The deadline is a week from today, next Friday, October 24th, at midnight. This is a little tricky because it is not just one caption, it's a series. I will chose the captions I think are the most fitting and most creative. Make these pictures tell a My Boy story!

Throughout the weekend, as they trickle in, I will post the photos and some of your captions, just for fun! Good luck everyone!


  1. Oh how much fun!! Okay here is my go at it.

    Photos in the order you posted them. Conversation between Pony Girl and Her Boy!

    Photo 1:
    "Hey, there is my very hot horsey girlfriend, Brandy! She loves me, even though she doesn't know it, yet."

    Photo 2:
    "What did you say? She doesn't even notice me? How could she not, with my handsome spots and my large Appy rear??!! It can not be true!"

    Photo 3:
    "Ha, I told you she loved me! Mom, you are such a tease."

  2. I will try:

    1. Humm-m-m life is good. Not much going one, just me at peace with the world.

    2. What?!?! You want to do WHAT!?!?

    3. Apples? Apple Mash? Now that sound interesting!


  3. Great idea, Pony Girl!

    I don't have anything horse related for my horse, though my tree is totally western with red chile lights and cowboy santas, and boots.
    I am so into your contest, espcially since it involves that handsome boy of yours :)

    So, here goes:

    1)Please Pony Girl, I don't want to wear that crummy halter thing.

    2)I mean it, Pony Girl! I do NOT want to wear it!

    3)Na Na Na, Boo Boo! You can't catch me!!!

    How's that?

    Get better quick, My Boy!!

    (And be a good boy for your Pony Girl Mama, too :)


  4. Gah...I meant to say I don't have anything horse related for my TREE. What a goober I am! lol :P


  5. Photo One/Caption One:
    See's PG approaching the gate with halter in hand.
    "Oh look! My Pony Girl is here."

    Photo Three/Caption Two:
    Just finished running away from PG.
    "Neiner Neiner...can't catch me!"

    Photo Two/Caption Three:
    Disdainfully watches as PG leaves the paddock to go get the whip to come back and chase him with(if he continues to run away!).
    "Well if you want to be THAT way about it...I was just fooling around with ya PG!"

    Have a good weekend! Glad that you Pill is doing better! :)

    1) Oh here comes "My Blonde Girl", Maybe she won't see me? If I stand really still.Not move a muscle...

    2)I think it's working she is moving away, She thinks I will follow her. I know what she is up to. I must train her to come to me, and bring me treats. I almost have her 1/2 trained.She is a bit stubborn,but with patience she will come around.

    3) Why is she constantly pointing the Flash box at me? Doesn't she know I can still see her!? Silly girl it is not a very good hiding place! Ah ha my treat! yum yum..plbbhgh! She mixed that nasty stuff in there! How will she find us one of those lanky, big hat, shiny buckle, hairy faced boys, if she doesn't learn to cook?!
