New Year's Eve....What to Post & of course, Arabian Horses

Looking through my posts, I can't believe I didn't do a special post on New Year's Eve in 2007. It was my first year of blogging and I had 331 posts under my belt. There were so many things that happened along the way I really should have devoted some time to them. Instead I just went on with the series about dear sweet Rhythm, A Baby Boomer Dreams of Arabian Horses - The Third Foal Crop - The Injury How I miss that boy!

That means I missed highlighting such blogging events from 2007 (this is tongue in cheek I hope you know!) as some humor like Living with O.C.E.A.N. Syndrome It just goes to show you you never quite know what's hidden blog archives.

Barn relationships got some coverage with Rachel and Grandma and the Arabian Horse Crash and Burn! There was a little bit of training/horse psychology maybe with What's Up with Licking and Chewing and Arabian Horses that triggered a slew of posts. Got high readership and plenty of discussion in the comments. There was more serious stuff like Sassy and Laurietta's Story - Tragedy or Miracle - 4th Twin Pregnancy in Horses which also got high readership for my fledgling blog and sometimes some not so supportive comments. I couldn't resist a bit of commentary Barbaro – One Woman’s Opinion and, of course I must not leave out my very first post, Trash Talking Arabian Horses I nearly forgot about those posts about my twins, I think they are really what got me started here. There were so many questions about the twins it was easier to answer them blogging than to respond to all the emails. Reflections on Foaling Season 2006 - The Twins so I better not leave them out.

Now that I've recapped the year I neglected, I thinking I should start a new holiday tradition on my blog and do a recap of the year that is just about to depart and maybe, just maybe a little sneak preview of what is to come.

To be continued...............

OH! I nearly forgot....Happy New Years, Everyone!

  1. What a great idea for a post Mikael! I am taking a cue from you and doing the same.

    Have a happy and prosperous new year. I'm looking forward to another year of your wonderful stories.

  2. Happy New Year MiKael and to everyone at the farm.

  3. MiKael:

    I have been following your blog for a while now. Can't say that I read every post that you author, as work, kids, horses, responsibilities usually get in the way of the best plans. What led me to your blog was the fact that you write about your life with Arabian Horses. And being an Arabian Horse lover, well, it just made sense. I was really touched by the rescue sotry that you have been writing about and particularly the video footage. The sequence where the horse turned his/her head to nuzzle the woman who was speaking, well, that was one of the most beautiful things I have seen in a long time. The emotion, the gratefulness, the spirit, the majesty of horses, in a few seconds, was overwhelming. Thank you, because if it were not for you, I would have missed being witness to this most incredible moment.
    Congratulations for authoring such a meaningful blog and for all that you do for the Arabian Horse breed. Are you aware of the encouragement and the inspiration that you provide for others, many who like me, for a variety of reasons, do not post comments? It's really wonderful to meet people like you.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Happy New Year, MiKael. Your blog is the best.

  5. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your family!

    I can't believe it is 2009! Where does the time go?

  6. A video of Wayne Newtons... Arabian Horses of course!!!

  7. Happy New Year, Mikael - wishing you good health, peace and prosperity!

  8. Happy New Year from the other side of the pond.

  9. Happy New Year MiKael, cant remember exactly when I discovered your blog and how but I know it was pretty early on in my blogging days when I started a Photo A Day blog as a challenge at the beginning of 2007. Lots of cyber buddies have come and gone and there has been a lot of water under the bridge, good and bad, but I hope this finds you feeling a whole lot better and here's to a great 2009. My resolution is not to loook back, I am going to look forward and build from that too much energy spent on resentment and what ifs!



  10. Happy New Year Mikael! Thanks for a year full of great posts and informative reading, sure have enjoyed it!!
