Oh, Misha, what a HUGE giveaway!! Thank you and those fine Ariat folk for being so generous :) I am a follower from waaay back ;) And I just became a facebook fan of Ariat as well. If I won, I would probably gift the hubby with some Ariat All Terrain boots. He loves those and they're his favorite boots for wearing to work. (He gave me a pair of Fat Babies for Christmas, so it's only fair.) Thank you so much! And yes, I'm spreading the word - gladly! -Tammy

This is a wonderful GIVEAWAY -wow, how did you get that done? I have loved Ariat boots ever since my first pair...no going back to the others! If I won, I think it is time to turn my good pair into a working pair so a new good pair would be wonderful! I've been a follower for some time and I just joined Ariat as a fan....

Elle Bee said...

Yay!! This is awesome! I love the boots--if I win, it will get me that much closer to healing my barnheart syndrome! :o) But then you said "Or think how adorable your little sprout would look in Araits boots!" and I squealed. Bug in boots???? Adorable!
PS I became a fan on Ariat's face book page, but it's a different name than the one I use on my blog...Yes, Elle Bee isn't my God given...bet you could've guessed!

Donna said...

Misha, What a wonderful giveaway! You know I am a follower and yes I will post it on my blog.
I want a pair for myself. It's my birthday next week and I would love to win :)
Happy 3 months Annie :)

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

Hi Misha,

I just found you through Sandra at Thistle Cove Farm. Looks like I picked the perfect time to arrive as I love Ariats and would really like to win a new pair.

I have had several pairs over the (many) years and most are still intact, just "crunchy" as you described in your earlier post. I would love to win some as I am in need of some "goin' to town" boots right now.

I wanted to say that I really like the comment you made about your Ariats being the equivalent of Jimmy Choos. I told my hubby when we met that I didn't do stilettos because the horses weren't impressed with me tottering down the barn aisle in anything but boots.

Thanks so much and I'm looking forward to reading even more from you.

~Kim~ said...

WOW this is wonderful!!! I of course became a fan of Ariat on FB, which by the way is my "other addiction." As I mentioned to you in a previous post, I've never owned a pair, but know the name and how much they are a "must have!" But Ariat boots aren't just for horse riding enthusiasts--I think anyone that lives in the country would benefit from having a pair! :-))) THANKS MISHA!!!
PS: Give Annie a 3 month birthday wish from everyone in my neck of the woods!!

I've always been a Justin girl but I'm open to being wooed away! ;)

Have an awesome day!


Rural Revival said...

Misha, So wonderful and generous of Ariat! I am now a fan on Facebook. : ) I think I would treat myself...something to go with my farm coat you know!


PS. Word has been spread!

The Lone Star Queen said...

Misha--I gave you a shout out on my blog and told my readers about your givaway. I haven't had a new pair of boots in years so If I were to win I would keep them for myself. It's just not right that the Lone Star Queen doesn't have boots to wear. Fun givaway!

The White Farmhouse said...

LOVE your new header pic! Simply gorgeous. How fun for you that Ariat is letting you do this! You must be so excited! Congratulations! My daughter will soon be back to riding lessons so maybe I should try to win a pair for her.

Happy 3 month Birthday to Annie!

Brenda said...

Wow ... Misha. This a great giveaway! Thank you so much for the opportunity at a chance to get a NEW pair of Ariat boots. Ariat boots are my favorite boots. Even when I've worn out a pair ... which takes forever! ... I have a hard time turning them out to pasture! Needless to say ... there are a few in the back of my closet with great memories attached to them!

I've been a follower of your wonderful blog for a while now and enjoy your photos very much. Have a great day! - Brenda

New follower... noticed your pic from Cades Cove. My hubby and I have been there several times, definitely a place of beauty.

Ariat give away is HUGE. I love my current Ariat paddock boots, another pair would be delightful!

Sharon said...

Hello Misha,

I just found your blog through Tammy at Flat Creek Farm and I wish I found your blog sooner. I look forward to spending more time reading your posts. Thank you for entering me in your generous giveaway. Ariats are my most favorite brand shoe/boot.

Have a blessed weekend!


Oz Girl said...

Oh Misha, Annie just cannot be 3 months old already?! How does the time fly by so fast??

And ARIAT boots?! Are you kidding me! I love, love, love Ariats and would die from sheer glee to win your giveaway. But you know, I would probably get a pair for hubby for our anniversary coming up in March. Since I haven't been working, I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a creative gift filled with love (haha) but oh my goodness, new Ariat boots would just rock his world!

I'll let my followers know about your giveaway tomorrow, promise... although that would lower my odds of winning now, won't it? LOL

Thanks for having such a wonderful giveaway Misha. You know I love your blog for its down home warmth and coziness... and I became an official fan of Ariat on FB too. :)

Have a blessed and wonderful weekend!

Susan :-)

jenmamaof2 said...

Thanks for makings this wonderful contest. I love Ariat boots. I have one pair that I got for Christmas last year....I worn them all the time during my last pregnancy. I have two little boys. The 1st is Giovanni who is 4 years old the 2nd is Giuliano who is almost 10 months. I love all the photos of the horses I wish we could have some but we live in Long Beach and not the country. Well have a wonderful day!

Ali said...

Hi Misha, I am a newbie to your blog and liking it very much! What an awesome giveaway! I have been wanting a certain new pair of Ariats for awhile now, maybe I will get lucky and be able to get them!

ponygirl380 said...

What a great blog! I am so glad I saw this on FB, I love love love Ariats!

Amy said...

Hello my dear friend, heard you were looking for lucky dogs....well, I have a whole pack...do you think we'll be more lucky because of that??? ;-)) I have to apologize for my disappearance this week, haven't meant to oversee your give away! And what a great giveaway! Will they really send me boots to Norway?? I'd be afraid of what the customs would cost on that...would probably have you send them to my sister- she works with horses and has a birthday soon..a woman who could really use a good pair of boots...although I trudging around here in the woods of Norway you sure need a good pair of boots too...have you ever heard of the Muck Boot? That is the boot I have now...LOVE it, waterproof and warm down to -25C! Can't beat that in this wet and cold northern climate!
Hope you'll post about your horses again soon- you know you've totally got me hooked on horses...I want one so badly but I wouldn't know how to ride them...but I'd have a blast taking photos of them...I'm thinking Frieser....you know I'm a sucker for BIG animals!!
Have a great evening my dear...
Hugs from Amy :-)

Ann On and On... said...

I am a faithful follower...even when my internet was out for two weeks and I had to spend $ at Starbucks just to read about Annie and you. I am also a fan of Ariat on their Facebook.

I was taken out of the country, but to me boots are part of my city. I wear boots all the time. I giggle when I pull a pair out that still have "ranch residue". Recently I was asked my favorite smell and without hesitation I said horses. I know that was a shocking answer to those who do not know me. *I think I found a ranch near me...wish me luck that they do not charge a lot to ride.

Hugs to the horses. Thanks for the giveaway!!!!

Paint Girl said...

I love Ariat boots, all of my boots are Ariats but one pair. They are so comfy!
I could use a new pair of boots for work too! Maybe I can get a little good luck here, I've had a streak of bad luck all week!

Missouri Gal Nicole said...

I love your horses, Ariat Boot and Face Book! Oh and blogging!

One Slick Chick said...

I can jump through all 3 hoops but my facebook page won't say "one slick chick". Here I go to fulfill my obligations so now draw my name...PlEASE!! Mama needs a new pair of boots!

Lizzy Frizzfrock said...

How fun!!! I love Ariats and have owned a pair of the black ones & brown ones in your blog when riding horses. The mules are great too. I'm looking forward to reading your blog and would love to own another pair of the black boots (I've outgrown my old ones).

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

I've been a lurker on your blog for a few weeks now, but I popped over from Susan "Oz Girl" when she mentioned the Ariat boot give-a-way.
I'm now an official follower of your blog, and a fan of Ariat.
I sooooooo hope I have a good chance at winning, because my current paddock/riding boots are ready to bite the dust. The Gorilla Glue holding the soles on aren't going to last much longer. gah!

What a super opportunity! Thanks for allowing me to enter!

Have a great day!
