Welcome to DIY Horse Ownership’s new site: www.diyhorseownership.com.
I’ve actually owned this domain name for a long time, but never got around to transferring everything over. This was mostly because I was worried about losing followers. However, the inconveniences of using blogger have been weighing on me more and more and I decided to finally make the switch.
To promote the new site and help transition followers over, I’m running two simultaneous contests. The first contest is really easy. Just complete the rafflecopter below to enter. You’ll need to follow my new blog and comment here letting me know how you follow whether it’s through feedly, bloglovin, wordpress, facebook, or whatever service you use. If you follow and you comment, you get one entry. If you share this contest and link to this post on your own blog, you get 2 extra entries. Winner will be chosen at random through the rafflecopter randomizer. The winner will get a $25 Gift Certificate to Riding Warehouse.
The second contest is a bit more complicated, but the great thing about it is that everyone is a winner. Seriously: if you participate, you win. The challenge is to read and comment on my next 5 blog posts starting with tomorrow’s post. You must comment each day within 24 hours of the post being published (so no waiting until the end and going back and posting on all of them at the same time.) I already have a bunch of great readers and regular commenters so I know I already have a few potential winners. And I’ll be happy to have more. The prize for this contest is your choice of customized item:
I’ll design the stall sign around your horse or you can let me know what colors or pattern you want for the bonnet. To be honest, the treats aren’t customized. But they are, by far, my most popular DIY post, so I’m including them as an option. Honestly, I have so many of these, if you pick the stall sign or bonnet, you’re probably getting some treats too. I will do international shipping if it’s not too complicated. If you live in a country with prohibitive import laws (like Iceland) and/or expensive shipping (like Columbia) sorry. If you live in Canada/Europe, you’re probably safe.
I’m excited to finally be here on my new page with my own domain. I hope everyone continues to read and follow my blog. I’ve very grateful to everyone who has so far.
Glad I got it fixed to get you over here.
Awesome! I followed you over from Blogger 🙂
Blogger hates me but I can’t seem to make myself make the switch to something else. So I still use it for everything.
I just couldn’t deal with it anymore.
Yay! Updated in Feedly, and linking in the next post that goes up 🙂
Yay! I follow you in Feedly. The new site looks good!
Thanks. I’m still working out some kinks, but I like it so far.
Fun! The new site looks great. I follow through blogger.

I think I can still follow through blogger? not sure.
You can follow through blogger, you just have to add the new website address to your blogger feed.
I love that you just magically showed up in my feed and I didn’t have to do anything!
I wasn’t 100% sure the feed conversion would work. I’m glad it’s working for some people.
Congrats on the fancy new digs 🙂
(and I came over from blogger 🙂
Congrats on the new(ish) site! 🙂 I’m following over on bloglovin.
I follow on bloglovin. New site looks great! AND I CAN COMMENT NOW! Yay!
a little late to the game bc i wanted to make sure i was at my laptop (instead of the phone) to update all the links. odd thing is – they seem to be redirecting all by themselves. your new post (eugene jumping) came through on my published blog list, appears in my blogger following list, and shows up on feedly, all without me changing anything. not sure if this is by design, or if the redirect function has a shelf life, but just thought i’d let you know! anyway the new site looks great!
Thanks for letting me know it’s all working. I wasn’t sure if the redirects would work or not and had no way to test them in advance.
I follow you through feedly. The new site looks great!
Congrats on the fancy new domain!
I think there’s some kind of tube going from your house to mine and Nilla and Eugene stories drip through that tube into my computerbox? It probably works because I’m in southern CA and it’s downhill from you. I follow the old fashioned way with a tab open in my browser. I don’t have a blog or blog-related service that I use.
That it how the internet works.

Yay for your new site! I just come directly to your blog. Maybe I should check out Feedly? My Blogger feed seems weird sometimes. I had a blog but haven’t updated it since I sold my horse in 2012. Boo hoo!

Hooray for the new site! And the contest!

I definitely am going to try the recipe for Cadbury Eggs–my all-time favorite candy!
