My cool readers
Remember my post about the National Wild Horse Adoption Day contest?
Here's a follow-up from my reader Abigail! Enjoy! Terri
In a message dated 8/27/2009:Hello!
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for posting about the National Wild Horse Adoption Day contest on Wabi Sabi West. Thanks to you, I'm a finalist, in the top ten with my entry of "Yuga"!
I love mustangs, and I ride one every week or so, so I jumped at the chance to name the National Wild Horse Adoption Day mascot. The question was then, "What would be the perfect name?" The first thing that came to my mind was my little sister. We recently adopted her from India, and it's like we have always been family. What was even better was the fact that her name was "Yuga" which means "forever" or "ages" in Sanskrit. It didn't take me long to put everything together in an essay that was close to me in many ways. The winner hasn't been chosen yet, and even if I don't win I'll feel like a winner. I mean, I got to honor my amazing little sister and a legacy of free spirits! What could be better than that?
Again, thank you so much for posting about the competition on your blog. Without you, I would not have known about it!
