Blogging from #AtoZChallenge - Your/you're and Yellowhawk

Second to last day! So I'm going to make this an easy one. We all accidentally typo this when we're not paying attention, but just in case you suffer from a brain fart, "your" indicates that you own something. "You're" is a contraction for "you are." If you can replace "you are" in the sentence, use "you're."

All done! Are you excited that AtoZ is almost over - or sad to see it go? Will you keep up with a more frequent blogging schedule? This was part of my New Year's resolution, so I intend to post a couple times a week, as something interesting happens in my writing journey or to another author. Let me know if you'd like me to post an author interview, cover reveal, or book launch.

Drop me a comment below and leave a link back to your blog and I'll be sure to visit and comment.

Oh yeah, the horse of the day. Today I've got pictures of Yellowhawk. He's a dappled palomino (sorry for the picture quality.) He's not a horse I owned, but a friend brought him to the barn for a little training and asked me to help her sell him. He was a funny boy. Loved kids, hated adults. Which is why he didn't work out for the owner. I tried to ride him and had some better luck, maybe because I'm small. But he didn't like that I expect immediate responses from my cues.

One of the girls that boarded with us hopped on and he was fantastic for her. We made sure she was around to help show the horse and advertised him as a kids only horse. He made a wonderful 4-H horse.


  1. I like Yellowhawk. I think it is really interesting that he had such age discrimination. Pretty horse, cool story!

    1. I think the kids were less demanding and let him get away with stuff!

  2. This one I am very aware of. I have to say it aloud just to make sure. Heh heh heh.
