My spotty muse is obvious, of course, but I see some comments on Huck's birthday party post that point out that "Spotty Horse" seems slightly restrictive. Since I don't want to change the title, I altered our tagline. (Again, for those of you paying attention.)
But I started playing with other meanings of spotty besides being covered with spots and this is where my brain went with that.
It could be that this is a blog with sporadic (spotty) news about horses, but also containing news about other four-legged beings and their teachings.
It could mean that Katie and I are not always super dedicated to posting every single day, so the frequency of our entries is spotty.
And it could be that I just happen to like the way Spotty Horse sounds and don't feel like changing it. :-)
I myself am spotty in both senses of the word - sometimes distracted, always freckled.
I appreciate having this forum to talk about the weird - and not-so-weird - things you encounter when you choose to share your life with other creatures, including other humans. Lena colors my world-view, always, so she is present in my words - at least in some small way - always. Even when I'm writing about cats or other people's dogs. :-)
