Note to self: must not use the words “T!ny” and “H0me” in a post together, much less a post title. I get 9 bajillion hits every time, most of which are people who typically never read this blog and found their way here because of those keywords and want to ask me a bunch of questions via my contact page email (it BLEW UP) that google could easily answer. I’m not into it. At all. Henceforth those posts shall be titled “THT” and the house will just be referred to as like… or “the mini abode” or “the diminutive dwelling” or “the petite palace” or… I don’t know. Anything. Anything but those two words. I can’t keep using the T word with the H word, I don’t need that kind of headache.
So, um, as you can probably tell, I’m wound a little tight right now with the house stuff. I have A LOT to get done in the next two weeks and I’m majorly stressing. I didn’t have a lot of time to dedicate to this post today because I have a million other things to do, so my apologies. BUT I did want to take a second to show y’all a really cool Instagram giveaway that I’m cohosting, in case you haven’t seen it yet. I had a vague idea of putting together something to encourage/reward our fellow equestrians for voting, and luckily was able to find two equally enthusiastic cohosts that helped develop the idea and get it off the ground. We were lucky to find a bunch of amazing brands that were equally enthusiastic about the cause to throw in toward the prize pack, too! First, the prizes:
It’s easy to enter too, you just have to 1) follow all the hosts/brands (you should follow them anyway, they’re great people and super generous), 2) tag a couple people in the comments, 3) post a photo to your Instagram feed with #equestriansvote. Easy peasy.
Here are the guidelines for the photos:
-Take a pic with your “I voted” sticker
-Take a pic dropping your sealed ballot in the mail (NOT of the ballot itself – sealed and with any sensitive/personal information covered)
-If you’re too young to vote or voted super early & didn’t take a pic, write “I will vote for (or voted for) ______” on a sign & fill in an ISSUE you’re passionate about (i.e. education, women’s rights, etc), NOT a candidate. We want to know what motivates you the most! Take a pic with the sign.
You can involve a horse in your photo or not, it’s up to you. Have fun with it! In addition to the main winner, we will also have two additional winners that get a monogrammed Majyk Equipe fly mask.
See this post for full entries rules/details. It’s open through voting day, but I know many people are voting early, so go ahead and get your photos in!
If you have any questions feel free to DM me. I’d love to see a reader win this contest!

Great idea for a contest! Putting some thought into this …
If it means anything, I have a feeling that you may have created a small reverse surge of your (actual) readers looking up TH websites while wondering “could I do this? I could do this!” And see my horse through the window every day. 🙂
Love this idea! And amazing prizes you guys got too!
This is almost enough to get me to join Instagram….but only almost. I rarely win anything. Really cool contest though!
I like the reference to Petite Palace. 😀
I think the draw might be is that you & your other half seem like “normal” people. You have regular lives & jobs. You aren’t turning to the lifestyle to go off grid, be nomadic, etc. That in and of itself is relatable.
