The Equestrian Lifestyle
So several days this week I’ve had some surprise of one thing or another in my mail box. A little gift or note from someone regarding my artwork (because you guys are awesome!) Yesterday though I got a more substantial package filled with a couple dozen issues of this magazine.
Why? I have no freaking clue.
Perhaps it’s my rather huge web presence that makes me seem like I’m somebody more than I am. Or maybe it’s because of my affiliation with the ever so awesome and always amazing Apples ‘n Oats magazine. But whatever the reason I’m glad they did.
This is the premier issue of a new equestrian magazine devoted to the equestrian life style. This magazine is filled with lots of glossy pictures of equine get aways, fast cars, stunning jewelry and all the finer things one imagines being of the horsey set entails.
I can only imagine this is how they live since this is not my equestrian lifestyle. My equestrian lifestyle is currently filled with shoveling poop, breaking ice from the water tank and pitching hay. Instead of spa retreats and gloriously supple leather boots, I experience horse slobber and mysteriously unmentionable stains.
But I sure do enjoy the looking.
I suppose its the same reason why some people buy Vogue and drool over fashions or super models. Looking is fun too. The articles are well written and cover a broad range of topics. The ads cover everything from Audi turbo cars to brightly colored hair extensions for your horse. (Yeah for real. Is Flicka feeling “purple” today? They’ve got just the thing.) Not to mention tons of horse artsy fartsy stuff that sets my heart all aflutter.
So if I’ve piqued your interest you can come by the gallery and pick up a complimentary copy or visit their website www.EquineFlair.us. for more information.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE:
If you have emailed me and I’ve not responded I promise to do so soon. Some days there just aren’t enough hours in the day. But I’m good. No worries.
Also I have one giraffe drawn in my new and potentially giraffetastic painting (hey, it’s totally giraffetastic in my head) but it’s not of a drawing enough to be blog worthy. Tomorrow being Sunday perhaps I’ll get a couple more drawn out and have something to show.
