Inspired by She Moved to Texas: A Postcard a Day, I resurrected my Postcrossing account.

Postcrossing logo-470x62

The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world … if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world … turn your mailbox into a box of surprises.

The profile allows one to add requests. I said that I would appreciate whatever they chose to send. However, if it where to be horse-related, the postcard could double as a blog post.

Et voila!

Postcard by Barbara D. Livingston, horse racing photographer.

The Colorado card came with a folded Budweiser Clydesdale card. The idea was for the user to detach the cards, send one, and keep the other side with Clydesdales factoids on the back. The sender was kind enough to send everything in an envelope to keep the two-part card in one piece.
