Horse Questions / Meme


Alrighty. Mary King's Riding Star video is cursed. Pretty sure. Will get done eventually if the computer program gods stop hating this project.

Anyways.

So I've been doing this blog for a few months and honestly... I have no idea who my audience is. Comments are few and I'm just curious about the people who find this amusing enough to take a look. I have 6 followers currently and I thank each of you. I can find out what interests you on your own blogs. (Insert evil laughter)

But more than those 6 visit the site. And I want to get you guys out of the woodwork and find out more about you. What do you like? What do you watch? Various random horse related questions as well. So I made a list of said questions that I'd really truly like to know. I will be staring rudely and taking notes.

And for those of you who are artistically inclined I have a meme of these questions that you can use on DeviantArt here. You can draw. Add photos. Or create your responses reenacted with model horses (I'm looking at you Model Horse Blab readers).

So here are the questions. Please feel free to share your answers in the comments and send a link to the image version if you fill it out. ^_^

1) What is your favorite horse book?

2) What is your favorite horse movie or movie horse?

3) What is your favorite horse related video game?

4) What is your favorite horse breed?

5) What is your favorite horse related TV show? (Silver Brumby, My Little Pony ect.)

6) What is your favorite mythical horse? (unicorn, pegasus, centaur, tikbalang ect.)

7) We have reached the end. What steed would you dramatically ride into the sunset on?

I have to say, I love your wit and how relatable you are. I find your posts amusing and they always leave me with a smirk or, if they are really funny, I try to share the joke with my completely non-horsey boyfriend... who stares at me like I'm crazy as I try to reveal the undeniable humor on the page in front at me. He stares blankly at me with a face that reads, "I don't care." And when I ignore the face and keep going, he verbally conveys the same message.

1) What is your favorite horse book? Black Beauty, for sure.

2) What is your favorite horse movie or movie horse? MLP the Movie

3) What is your favorite horse related video game?

Saddle Up with Pippa Funnel

4) What is your favorite horse breed?

Sport Horses (TB x WB crosses - ultimate athlete!) Granted, it has to be the right TB to the right WB to get said ultimate athlete.

5) What is your favorite horse related TV show? (Silver Brumby, My Little Pony ect.)

If I had to choose one, MLP since that it what I grew up watching. Generally, horse TV shows irritate me.

6) What is your favorite mythical horse? (unicorn, pegasus, centaur, tikbalang ect.)

Kirin

7) We have reached the end. What steed would you dramatically ride into the sunset on?

I can't really think of one that I actually like :P Although I did watch every episode of Horse Power on Animal Planet.

1) What is your favorite horse book? Black Beauty

2) What is your favorite horse movie or movie horse?

3) What is your favorite horse related video game? No clue. I don't play video games, but my Fjords were recorded by a gaming company to use as reference for a Viking (or something else that would require Fjordesque horses) game. So whatever that one is would probably be my favorite.

4) What is your favorite horse breed? Depends on what I am doing. Tennessee Walkers/Peruvian Pasos for trail. Argentine/OTTB for polo. Draft crosses for eventing. Welshes for driving. Welsh cobs for dressage. Fjords for teaching. QHs for ranchwork. So, I guess I like horses doing what they were bred for :D But then, I love me a good mutt and I won't say no to most any horse.

5) What is your favorite horse related TV show? My Little POny

6) What is your favorite mythical horse? Pooka

7) We have reached the end. What steed would you dramatically ride into the sunset on? My favorite walker Smokes.

1) What is your favorite horse book? I haven't read a horse book in a long time. My favorite "horse books" are the ones that aren't even related to horses. Usually they're the classic books written in a time where horses are common and a big part of everyday life. Those books have the best insight into people's opinions of them at the time. The most recent one like that I've read was "Rookwood" by William Ainsworth published in 1834. There is a fairly important horse character called "Black Bess" that was quite impressive. They talk about her pedigree in the book, too, but I don't want to give it away. :)

2) What is your favorite horse movie or movie horse?
Hmmmm... not a horse, but I was addicted to The Last Unicorn when I was like... 5. Real horse movies are okay, but I don't think I can call any of them my favorite.

3) What is your favorite horse related video game? NONE. I spent a week and played all of them available and was unimpressed. Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is pretty good with the horses and Red Dead Redemption is not too shabby either. Those two are at the top of my list for horse relatedish games. I guess there is a version of "Petz Horsez" out there that is actually kind of worth looking into, but I can't remember which one. I just know its for the PC and its a little older and set in France and actually has a neat storyline.

4) What is your favorite horse breed?
Andalusian!

5) What is your favorite horse related TV show? (Silver Brumby, My Little Pony ect.)
....none of them? I like watching the edited video clips of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that I find online, but I haven't seen the show.

6) What is your favorite mythical horse? (unicorn, pegasus, centaur, tikbalang ect.) THE KELPIE!!! That one rocks.

7) We have reached the end. What steed would you dramatically ride into the sunset on? The one I wanted when I was a little kid (aawwwwwww) - a bright bay Andalusian stallion with a blaze and three white stockings.

I joined Blogger especially to follow this blog, as I too am a big horsy games fan and I have about 30 for the computer, DS and PS2!! So I'm glad I'm not the only one :D

1) What is your favorite horse book? If it counts, The Last Unicorn though it breaks my heart. If not, then it's Blind beauty by KM Peyton. The Pony Club Secrets books are also surprisingly good.

2) What is your favorite horse movie or movie horse? Sprit: Stallion of the Cimarron is just incredible and it's my favourite soundtrack too.

3) What is your favorite horse related video game? Willowbrook Stables: Quest for the Golden Horseshoes, even though it could glitch and the game was always the same. I just loved the island, the people, the puzzles and the fab music. I also love Barbie Riding Club - all the videos of it on youtube are mine!

4) What is your favorite horse breed? The British Riding Pony ie. show pony

5) What is your favorite horse related TV show? (Silver Brumby, My Little Pony ect.) The Silver Brumby despite using repeated animations ALL the time.

6) What is your favorite mythical horse? (unicorn, pegasus, centaur, tikbalang ect.) Unicorn.

7) We have reached the end. What steed would you dramatically ride into the sunset on? Swift Wind

Hey all, I put myself as Anonymous because...I...well never mind. Here goes!

Um wait. My computer lags A LOT, so I won't type out the questions (more like can't)

1) My favourite horse book is King of the Wind by Margaret Henry. Go Arabians!

2) Secretariat! Whoo!

3) I love Horse Isle 2. Everything about it is great, except it lags only a tiny bit.

4) Arabians. That's why I like King of the Wind.

5) Nightmares. Does that count? I love their black coats and fiery manes.

6) That would be the Godolphin Arabian.

~The End~
