And The Winner Is …

“The Winner Of Haynet Blogger of the Year 2013 is Frances Taylor!” Full announcement here.

My Shetland: Everything Shetland

Well, I am firstly a mother and secondly a photographer. I live in Shetland, Britain’s most northerly outpost.

I have ridden ever since I can remember but got my first pony when I married, had 2 children and was in my thirties.

Now, a decade later, I have *** cough *** “some” Shetland ponies, Icelandic horses and a Welsh Section A. About Me

Advent Calendar, for December 2013

Didn’t even get on the podium. Ah well, it was fun to be nominated. Seriously. After almost two years of daily posts, I welcome any subject on which I can write at length.

On a side note, I woke up a few hours before the voting closed and was nervous until the announcement was made. Therefore, horse show nerves are not physical fear, nor fear of failure. Apparently my upset stomach is a manifestation of my competitive side. Must win. Everything. Now.

  1. (gosh, what to write… a supportive message or a nasty mean gloating one about being on the podium…)
    Ah well, neither! You always make me laugh, with your psycho competitiveness. I claim to not have a competitive bone in my body. My husband claims that this is true apart from when there’s something to be won. He may have a point… I was constantly checking in on HayNet as we travelled on Monday to see if there was any NEWS.

    And it must be said that Frances’ blog is fab

    • re competition: Psycho? Moi?

      re fab: I have the My Shetland Advent Calendar 12/5 photo of the Northern Lights as my desktop background as I type. (S’okay y’all, she said we could.)
