At the barn #43 - Duh, winning!! (yes to carrots)

No tiger blood here, but apparently we're lucky!!

Eagle, over at Thoroughly Yours was kind enough to pick Val's name out of a hat a couple of weeks ago for a "Yes to Carrots" contest sponsored by his blog. Eagle is a handsome, energetic and well spoken elder statesman of the thoroughbred world. I don't know how he has the time, but when he isn't galavanting around with his girl Jessica or keeping up with a strenuous west coast social calendar, he writes a very entertaining and clever blog. (There are fun little surprises here and there - try passing your cursor over the pictures) Well worth visiting :)

I picked up "our" package from the post office this afternoon on my way to the barn. It arrived beautifully gift wrapped...




I think at some point Val heard me say that the prize was carrot related (blah, blah, blah, C-A-R-R-O-T, blah blah)... Of course he assumed it was his. A horse prize. For horses. I had to gently break it to him that although carrot-related, it was not technically carrots. Or even edible. Mine Val. All mine. I'll make it up to you buddy ;)




Botanical body care products + carrots = awesomeness. I can't wait to try these out. Thanks Eagle and Jessica!!

I have always wondered about those shampoos and skin care products!! The name is so awesome. I have almost put them in my carriage at Target numerous times! And as for the horses, I always say Yes to Carrots and am usually armed with a bags of them! Organic, of course!

I was with Val! Definitely expecting horse treats! Lol, but carrot shampoo sounds pretty cool too.

Congrats!

very cute idea!

never to early to start planning christmas gifts! I think we could also go with apple products, molasses, oats... :)

I'm going to go check out that gentleman's blog!

p.s. I'm following your site!

I'm glad that the prize arrived safely, and maintaining the fancy wrapping and everything. Hope you enjoy the products! I haven't actually used the shampoo and conditioner yet (I would have rushed to try them if my scalp weren't so sensitive -- I have to use "special" shampoo that smells like the kind I use on my cats), but the lotions and chapsticks are really great.

Eagle definitely approves of your description of him. He wants part of your description printed on his business cards. I'm still not sure what he plans to use these business cards for, though.

Great prize. Congrats! :) Your description of Eagle has me intrigued. I need another blog to read like I need a hole in my head but I'm totally going to read it now. :D
