If your allocated horse gets scratched, sorry but your out of the sweep.
If there are less than 24 horses by the time we draw the sweep, the first members to respond will be given a horse.
Prises will be posted anywhere around the world after winners PM me their postal address.
It's only a bit of fun. Seriously, don't take it too seriously!

Regards,
Steven

My Crepe myrtle. It's as beautiful in Winter with its branches bare as it is in late Summer with its flowers.
