    Thumbs up The Official 2009 COTH Christmas Card Exchange Thread

    Hey Everyone!

    With ChocoMare working diligently on the Secret Santa and Freebird! getting married, it came to my attention that there may not be a Christmas Card thread this year! So (with the encouragement of fellow mail seekers) I'm volunteering to coordinate the Christmas Card exchange. Here's how it will work:

    1. Send me an email at cothxmascard2009@yahoo.com with the following information: COTH name, REAL name, Address (international is ok), and email address where I can contact you if I have questions (if other than the email you sent me the info at)

    2. I will collate everything into a spreadsheet that you can then use to print your labels (there are directions on the outside of the label package for anyone who needs help)

    3. Send me your info no later than November 15th, I will get the list out to everyone no later than November 20th. That gives everyone about a month to get cards stuffed and sent.

    A few people asked last year what to send. I have received everything from a simple card with a signature to a full page letter with multiple pictures. All were welcome. Anything about you or your horse(s) or that you want to share with everyone.

    If you have any questions, let me know. Otherwise, let the sign up begin!!

    Bless you FB for stepping up and taking on the Card Swap. I really, really can't do both the cards and SS. Makes my brain hurt!

    If you want last year's database, lemme know and I'll e-mail it to you. Might save you some typing since you can just borrow last year's data for those folks who haven't relocated

    Last year the total came to right around 50 I think? Last year was my first year participating and I LOVED it! Everyday for a few weeks I got 2-3 cards in the mail, it was awesome! Choco, if you could send me last year's list that would be great. You can just send it to the email at the top of the thread. Thanks!

    Default Thank you

    Thanks for stepping up to the plate! It was so much fun getting so many different types of cards from so many fellow horse people. I am looking forward to doing it again this year.

    FB, I just had to say that your horse's name is awesome!! And I love that his barn name is Reno!! That is so cool. (Can you tell I'm a huge fan of the Man in Black?) ;-)

    Thanks for setting up the Christmas card swap also!

    Kim, you just totally made my day! No one ever gets my horses name, let alone connects it with his barn name! He came with the name Reno and (though I am a Johnny Cash fan, I am an even bigger Joaquin Phoenix fan) I had just seen "Walk the Line" and loved the song and I thought, wait a minute..."I shot a man in RENO..."...perfect! Haha, thanks again!

    FB, maybe you need to ask the Mod is she can make this a sticky. I think there is a little symbol that you click on for the mods, may be the triangle.

    Looks like it's "Stickied"! (is that a word?!?! "Stuck" ? LOL!).

    I should be on last year's list with no changes, but will email you anyway.

    Thanks for doing this!
