Just a little administrative stuff here. When I started this blog, what I had in mind was a place where people could talk about topics covered in the Equine Tapestry books. There is a lot of information in the first volume of the series, and more to come in the subsequent ones (I say this as I eye the huge stack of notes about pony breeds sitting here beside me), but even so only a fraction of the information is in the books. I though the blog could serve as a place to share that extra information, if it was wanted, but in many ways it has taken on a life of its own. I wanted a conversation, and I certain have gotten that. I just did not expect it to reflect my own rambling, subject-jumping speaking habits quite so closely!
But it is a conversation, and I encourage readers to participate. Feel free to leave a comment here on the blog itself, or send a message through email. You can find that by clicking the sabino horse image under the “Contact Me” button. Questions, observations, photos and links are always welcome. Sharing these makes for a richer experience for everyone.
I also encourage those who participate on Facebook to “Like” our page there. Because I am pretty strict about photo permissions here, and because WordPress is not set up for easy back-and-forth sharing of pictures, many readers use the Facebook page to link to interesting horses online. From time to time the subjects covered here get expanded upon over there. (I do have a personal Facebook page, but it is usually filled with terribly mundane comments about my family members rather than interesting images of horses.) Clicking on the image below will take you to the page for Equine Tapestry.
I also keep a set of Pinterest boards with collections of links to unusual horses, all sorted into categories and, in some cases, testing status. I need to add to them, but Pinterest is a terrible place for encouraging time-wasting, as the completely unrelated boards full of recipes I will not make, and home decorating projects I will not start, would suggest. Separating out those personal boards and putting together an exclusively horse color Pinterest account is on my list of things to do, but that is a long list! Clicking on the image below will take you to the boards.
As a final note, I have some updates on the books themselves, but I will handle that in a separate post.
