Random Things

I've been brainstorming my "How To Properly Sell Your Horse" series. I will start posting it sometime during the week -- it involves lots of pictures, so it will take some planning.

Here's the rundown. I'm going to make three posts on presentation -- bad presentation, adequate presentation, and excellent presentation. This refers to the pictures you take, the ad you write, the responses you give, and where you put your ad. All of these will feature McKinna; in the first ad, she'll probably be a horse that you wouldn't want to buy. She'll look pretty fugly (though it will be hard to tell from the pictures), and the information volunteered won't make you jump on the chance to get her. Her presentation in the third ad will be far more flattering, with information given that makes her a lot more attractive to a potential buyer. Since it's the same horse, it should really drive home the difference it makes when you put in a little effort.

Of course, readers of this blog probably aren't the ones posting really bad ads, but you could always refer those people to these posts ;)

Before that (probably tomorrow), I'll post a general guideline post that gives a few good things to keep in mind.

After the three presentation posts, I'll do a post on buying a horse, and etiquette therein.

As a side note, I've started a second blog to keep track of my progress with Appendix Mare, whose name is going to be Pandora. It's not really for the purpose of reading -- it's mostly for my own reference, a sort of online training log since I type much faster than I write -- which is why it's not linked from my profile. But, if you are bored and feel like checking in on her day-to-day progress, here's the link.

I will still talk about Pandora plenty in this blog, so don't worry about missing out. Just figured some of you might be interested in the smaller day-to-day details, especially since I know I love reading other people's training logs :)

Hope you guys are having a wonderful day and enjoying the horse life. Expect a post tomorrow to kick off the horse-selling series!

I'm excited for you and your new pony. I expect I'll be learning a lot as you go back to some retraining with her. I have added Pandora's page to my list!
