    Exclamation ***NEW on 12/28, SEE POST #127*** HORSE TREAT Secret Santa

    My horses and I had such fun with this last year!

    PLEASE NOTE: This is DIFFERENT from the regular COTH Secret Santa. I think last year was the first year it was done.

    This Secret Santa escapade allows YOUR HORSES to send treats to OTHER HORSES. You can sign up one, two or sixty (ohpleasedon't) horses but that's how many personalized treat boxes you will have to mail (because horses are notoriously bad about getting to the Post Office in a timely manner).

    One different thing is the spending levels... we have none. You should be able to send a nice box of treats for between $15-20, so that limit can apply for everyone.

    If your horses want to join in, please send the following info to: horse_treat_ss@yahoo.com... and yes the list is being borrowed shamelessly from Chocomare:

    1. Your COTH screen name

    2. Your real name and full mailing address, including country

    3. Your e-mail address

    4. Your phone number (Your SS will be instructed to only use this number in the event they choose to ship via UPS. It may help get a package to you that was incorrectly addressed.)

    5. The name(s) of your horse(s)

    6. Any descriptive info about your horse(s) that you want to share

    7. FOR EACH HORSE you are signing up (please try to make it clear which list goes with which horse) -- treat likes, dislikes, allergies, health considerations

    DEADLINE FOR SIGN-UP IS OCTOBER 31, 2007. I will distribute gifters and giftees by Monday, November 5. Any questions please let me know... this is my first time doing this kind of thing and I will gratefully accept any suggestions or criticism!

    Well, I have just as much fun as Ted putting a gift package together, because Ted says, "Mom - buy these!" and then, of course, he has to try them out to make sure they're good enough to include. Or I have to try out new horse treat recipes.

    But I'm hoping this sort of thing will instill in him the idea of giving so that when he's a lawyer he will do pro bono work for equine rescues. Which, cough cough Ted, won't happen if you don't start studying for those LSATs!!

    Ahhh, I really want to sign up for the horse SS this year, but I will have to wait until I KNOW I have a job. Both Bugs and Frodo would love this one!

    Sprite had a great time with the Horse Treat SS last year...and this year he'll have to share his treats with Huey (his OTTB stand-in while Sprite's on the injured list).

    I'm sending in my email now to sign up my little red horse...and my (borrowed) big red horse!

    I had a great time with this last year! This year, I know for certain I do not have the time to shop or browse for treats. I won't be home until Dec 21 this year. so if you don't mind a late player I'll be in for the fun.

    You may put Ted's mind at ease. His enrollment has been received and processed... nothing left but the waiting! Or the shopping...

    Bump!

    Oh and a few admin notes: Brio, I'm SURE that if you explained (via an alter of course) your situation to your recipient horse, he/she would be happy to wait. Last year I was late sending everything and heard no complaints!

    Eventer55 I sent you an email with a question.

    Hey do you think my horses could participate or is that tacky? I don't really have someone here to pull the names and send them out so I'd know who would be giving to my horses. Hmmm. Maybe they'd better sit this year out...

    JoZ, absolutely! It's not YOU, it's your horses. Sure, I have to help Ted mail the package as he doesn't ahve a drivers permit, and wrapping up the packing is a pain without those ever so important opposable thumbs, but it's TED'S gift. Not mine.

    I have to admit, every time I see your user name I chuckle a bit remembering the Great Search for the Apple Fritter...
