Thanks, Full Tilt!

Full Tilt Border Collies has a really fun blog. I really enjoy reading about their life training, trialing, raising sheep and freezing their a$$es off... ;)

Imagine my surprise to see this --

Full Tilt Border Collies sent me a blogging inspiration award. Super fun!!

I enjoy writing my blog, thanks Full Tilt for the kudos. Positive reinforcement works on people just like any other learners. This small recognition really made me smile. I wish I had more time to devote to my blog, but then again I'd so rather be out with the dogs (and now, the SHEEP!).

Part of the inspiration badge is to pass it on -- share with other bloggers who make a difference to you. Full Tilt and I seem to run in some of the same circles so there would be some overlap (Go Rocking Dawgs!) but here are my choices for INSPIRATIONAL blogs:

I am pretty sure most of these people don't read my blog -- but that's ok. It's the thought that counts, right?

The Pioneer Woman -- Ree Drummond. Love this blog!! What a fun life and a fun story.

Rocking Dog Ranch
-- Insightful posts from a fellow over-thinker and dear friend.

Training Border Collies
-- Candy's blog always teaches me something new, and often reminds me there is more than one "right" way to accomplish a goal.

Alta Pete Farm Tails
-- Jenny is a crack-up. I love her photos and stories about life on the farm, on the road and holding down the fort.

eyeherdewe - KH posts incredibly witty, creative and sometimes painfully accurate, if sarcastic, bytes of life in the real world.

Delta Bluez Stockdogs -- Fun blog by my original sheepdoggin' friend!

BCxFour -- Posts are sometimes brutally honest, sometimes goofy and giddy, but always feature amazing photography.

-- The Food Lady strikes with sardonic remarks about life with dogs and doing animal rescue, all punctuated by neat photos.

10-7 Ranch -- This is kind of like reading about Disneyland for me. Don't judge me! ;)

Cold Antler Farm -- Jenna is a young new homesteader. Her journey is so fun and very inspiring. Go slow food and novice sheepdogs!

Phantom Ridge Border Collies -- From home building to dog training, snow to hail to scorching heat and sangria -- fun abounds.

Thanks for writing blogs I learn from and enjoy. If you wish to participate in passing along the positive reinforcement to your friends, just follow these instructions --
