Wow! THREE People Awarded Me the Sisterhood of World Bloggers’ Award!

Wow!  I’m stunned, flattered, honored, humbled, and just plain flabbergasted!  Not one, not two, but THREE people awarded this to me!  Those wonderful, generous, kind people are in alphabetical order by first name are:  Elizabeth Townes, Lynn Baillie, and Riki Cleveland.


The Four Simple Rules of the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

  1. Thank the giver and link to their blog.
  2. Post 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers and let them know they’ve won!
  4. Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog.

So here goes:

Seven things about me:

1.  I love chocolate.  I no longer try to live on it, but I still eat it.  I was spending $15/week on chocolate.  The good stuff.  But now I don’t.  It’s still yummy!

2.  I love just about anything with four legs and fur.  Well, almost anything.  There are exceptions.  But mostly dogs, cats, horses.  I currently have one dog, two cats, and three horses.  I also have eight chickens.

3.  I’m trying to grow my own food.  This is my third year with a vegetable garden.  The tomatoes are doing fairly well, especially the yellow cherry tomatoes.  I found out about pruning tomato plants this year.  I’ll be overrun with potatoes soon and that’s good.  The peas didn’t fare well again.  I have chard, melon, and turnips, too.  The carrots refused to grow.   And I had few strawberries.

4.  I love berries.  All kinds of berries.  And berry season is almost over here.  I’ll be sad when it is.

5.  I hawk someone else’s hummus at farmers’ markets.  Good stuff.  This job keeps me entertained.

6.  I love music and dancing.  I used to dance many styles – jazz, ballet, Polynesian!  A girl with long, really long, blonde hair doing the hula!

7.  I clicker train my animals.  Or, at least, I try to.  I’m better with the horses than with the “new” eleven-year-old dog!

Seven Bloggers That I’m Sharing This Award With:

  1. Stale Cheerios – Hunter talks about clicker training in general and with horses and her horse rescue.
  2. Bookends Farms Ponies – Jackson talks about her horses, her farm, her dogs, Pony Club, and clicker training.
  3. Remote Coach – Dearing talks about how to improve your riding and showing and how she does it for you, with you remotely.
  4. Tales from a Bad Eventer –  Funny blog I just found.
  5. Nanette Levin, both of her sites – and
  6. Laura Kelland-May,,
  7. And Katie Bartlett – this isn’t exactly a blog, but it might as well be.  She started writing about clicker training ten years ago and putting it up on her website.  There’s a lot of info there:

Can you tell that I’m really into horses and clicker training?

About Laurie Higgins

I play with clicker training - with my horses, dogs, and cats. I also attempt to grow vegetables with the hope of one day being able to feed my family from my garden. My daughter and I are learning ballroom dancing. Well, we were. But she left me for a paying horse job, so now my husband and I are learning ballroom dancing. I'm also now helping Peggy Hogan, of Clicker Training Horses (and The Best Whisper is a Click) to teach people how to train their own horses using "clicker training".

  1. Thanks so much for the mention and nod, Laurie. For what it’s worth, carrots and peas don’t do so well in hot weather. At least around here, we’ve had temps in the 90s since March, which is unheard of in Upstate New York. Keeping them watered helps but if it’s too hot, it’s difficult to get them excited about producing. Curiously, I have a local friend who planted them all wrong – hundreds of seeds dumped about every inch. They’re small but thriving. Go figure. Guess the concentration is keeping them cooler.

  2. I’ll have to keep that in mind. At least the peas germinated and came up. The carrots never did. 😦 Try again next year!

  3. Thanks Laurie. I have actually thought about doing a blog, but worry I’ll get started and then not have the time.
