CONTEST: Bran Mash Madness


We are almost at the end of our contest and we are awaiting your comments! Send in those mash recipes.  And, if you don’t use a mash, no problem…just write a comment, don’t be shy!

Mash Myths: So you think a mash is only for winter consumption.  Well, actually you are wrong.  Deco’s Monster Mash can be given all year round.  During the summer weather add cold water instead of hot and let stand for a little longer.  This mash is really good for hydration which is very important during the hot summer days.  Also, giving a mash during a show is a great way in aiding hydration and horses will always eat their mash when not eating their typical food.

Larissa reviewed this product earlier this year:

Not only is this mash yummy, all-natural and nutritious, it also aids in hydration which is so critical to maintain in our competitive companions!

The Twelve HORSEY Days of Christmas!!

“On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me….”

Get your Sherlock Holmes hat ready for:

A Christmas contest sponsored by Edition Boiselle and Kemp Equine.

How it works:

Each day from December 4th, 2009 to December 15th, 2009, TacknTalk Blog will publish one line from our song The Twelve Horsey Days of Christmas“.

It is your job, as horsey scavenger hunt contestants to find those items that have been sung about that day, and take a picture of yourself next to them!

Ex: If our song lyric was “On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree”, then you would find a partridge in a pear tree, and take a picture of yourself standing next to it! Or, if the lyric was “Twelve drummers drumming”…find yourself a dozen drummers, stand next to them, and snap that picture!

Email photos that correlate to the lines of the song, to tackntalk@ymail.com. Contestants that have successfully captured twelve photos that correlate to the 12 Horsey Days of Christmas will be entered into a draw to win an Edition Boiselle 2010 Calendar! If you do not have all twelve pictures, send in as many pictures that correlate to the lyrics as possible! Although full sets will be given preference, incomple entries will be considered for the calendar draw!

Please submit all photos by December 24th. Winners will be announced December 26th. NOTE!! CONTEST NOW EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 31st!!

For extra fun, any unique, creative or funny pictures will be published on the blog and on TacknTalk’s Facebook Fan Page throughout the contest!

Have fun and good luck! 😀
