Before I start officially this post I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading your comments about mares! Truly, I did not know so many people felt the way they did about mares- and in such a positive light. Most of what I have heard about mares has been in terms of them being "mareish" and less than favorable. Thank you for your insight, I am now inspired more than ever to read Betsy's book!
'Tis the season! Still need some last minute holiday gifts? Some of you might be familiar with Etsy.com. It's a wonderful site for artists of all kinds to sell their handmade goods. You can even find neato vintage treasures on there, too!Artists set up little online "shops" to sell their wares.I know, because I've become addicted. Mostly with browsing, but I have purchased a few items and have been completely thrilled with every transaction.
The other day I did some searching for horse-related Etsy items, and here is some of what I found. Click on each artist's name to follow the link to their Etsy.com page. I have not shopped from these vendors specifically, I just like their items.By the way, everything I've featured is under $30! And you have to act quick on Etsy, many items are one-of-a-kind and sell out quick (some of my original choices for this post, which I started over a week ago, have since sold!)
Be fair warned though, once you click over, you will not be able to leave! Make sure you have a cup of hot cocoa and some good shopping music playing in the background!
