Hobby Horse Blog Hop - Week WhoKnows?

Before we get on to the Blog Hop...

Estes is coming home!

Now that I've got that off my chest.  Wait...not quite...

Estes is coming home!

On Memorial Day, my baby girl comes home.  This is the longest she's ever been at winter pasture, but between my schedule and waiting for the weather to be "normal", she's been away from home for a long time.

Ok, now we can get to the blog hop, hosted by Dreaming over at Living a Dream.  The rules are fairly simple: answer any (or all) of the questions she posts, add a question of your own, and link up.  Pretty painless, really, and a lot of fun.

1. Imagine that you are once again 8 years old. You have just received the best present, ever. (Ponies and pets are not included on the gift list!) What is it?
Just looking at this makes me want to re-read them
2. What kinds of toys do your animals enjoy playing with?
Toys.  Estee doesn't do toys.  The dog has a stuffed giraffe that she carries around sometimes and the cats love plastic bags.
3. I know you have seen some sort of recreational activity on TV, or in real life, that you would just love to try. What is it?
I so want to do all of the cool stuff they do on Top Shot.  I would pay a lot of money - a lot - to get to do all of the cool stages they do.  Hell yes, strap me into a revolving do-hickey, give it a spin and let me shoot at targets.
My question:  What were your favorite childhood books?
Mine, obviously, were The Black Stallion series and The Trixie Belden series.

I can tell you are just a little excited about Estes arrival home... only just a bit, right?!
I can see that Top Shot would be right up your alley!

I wasn't a huge fan of The Black Stallion... but then, when I was younger, there was only one book- not a series! I did read every horse book in the library. Of the books I owned I loved Laura Ingalls Wilder.

I'm with you on the Black Stallion - I love those books! I trawled through junk shops for years until I had the whole collection :)

Yay your horse will be there soon!
I read all the Black Stallion books, Trixie Beldon,the books by Enid Blighton, any book that was about horses. I loved the C.W. Anderson books about real horses, with the great drawings in them. Especially Man'O'War and Ruffian.

Yay for Estes coming home! So exciting for you!!

My favorite books as a child were the Beverly Cleary books, like Ramona and Beezus and Judy Blume books, like SuperFudge.
