DJ - plaited!

Not A Beauty Contest Winner This Morning!

He had taken advantage of the rain to have a good roll - so he was looking more like a "Bog Monster" than a cute pony today!

I brought him in and he ate a little bit of hay while I stared to grrom him.  I couldn't give him too much, as he was going to do some work, but it had been an awful night for him - gale force winds and torrential rain, so thought he needed something to make hime feel a bit happier about life!

Toni rode Smudge and led Junior; and we only went up the road and back ... Nice it was no longer frozen, but it was now raining ... at least the wind had dropped off a bit.

He then had a bit more hay and a feed when he came back, before going back to his very muddy home - and his friend, Conrad, of course.

Spark & Burn Awards.

For quite a few on my f-list that title won't mean a thing ... but there again, for the rest it will!

Spark & Burn is one of the fan-fic award sites, that can be seen here , if you don't know about it!

I have been a judge for the last 2 rounds, and have just received the information I need for the next set of judging.  It has been terribly delayed this time due to "RL" going on in the life of Amy the organisor.

However - I am now busy printing out stories ready to read.

As ever I find it a challenge -
  • Some of the fics are stories that I have already read and loved ... in fact 1 of the fics I have read many times and about 5 others are ones I have read during this last year and fell in love with.
  • Some of the fics I will be reading are Spuffy, yet not of the group that I normally read - There are a few that are all-Human, and a couple that are very dark.
  • I have, as ever been asked to do 3 catagories (and, no, I am not going to say which ones ... I don't want any bribes coming my way ... LOL) ... with a couple of the fics being in more than one group.  That is something that I always find extra hard, for some unknown reason.
  • Yes, some of you reading this - it is going to be your fics I shall be reading.
  • You know I hate WIPs ... well, as ever there are some in there!
All I can say is that I promise to judge on an even basis, and hope that all of us come to the correct answers.

For me, it has come at a good time.  I am really feeling that life is going well, so the challenge of reading some work that I normally wouldn't read ... as well as being constructive in my Spuffy thought processes, will do me good!
