Miscellaneous Shenanigans

Equestrian Blogger Secret Santa!

We take a break from your regularly scheduled silence for…Christmas!!!

This year I decided to not be a Scrooge and participate in Fly on Over’s Equestrian Blogger Secret Santa. True to my blog theme, I gave an EXTREMELY frugal gift that I hope the person enjoys. I enjoyed making it anyway. It sort of centers around an inside joke that I tried to explain and I hope it comes off as intended! If not, I made cookies too.

My Secret Santa was Alli from Ponytude. She knows how to make a foxhunter smile!

My kitty Manchego was intrigued.

Hand and foot warmers: How I survive the winter, whether I’m hunting or not.

Carhartt socks: Essential for the days I forget the toe warmers.

Chapstick: I was seriously impressed by this one! Perfect for a windy day of hunting.

And the fun stuff: I am especially excited to try a concoction with the Absolut Mandarin. I would have never thought of it myself since I tend to go with port or Apple Jack, but I think that will inspire some really tasty flask fillers.

I had a real “small world” moment when I realized who my Secret Santa was. Back when I was freelancing for Horse Nation, I came upon a story idea from a podcast she posted on her blog with equestrian sport psychologist Dr. Jenny Susser. I had actually completely forgotten I even wrote it and it was fun to go back.

Thank you Alli for the gift and for re-introducing me to your blog! I see you’ve been bitten by the foxhunting bug and I hope our paths cross in the hunt field or at hunt races sometime!
