Just a reminder . . .
You might be able to find answers to some of your questions by going to the "Andi's Family" and "Andi's Friends" links on the right sidebar to learn little facts and things about the characters. True, there's nothing about the horses in there, but plenty about the human characters.
Also, if you haven't clicked this link to see an overview of how to write a story and you'd like some tips, go here: FIVE ELEMENTS OF A STORY AGES 10 and UP
Or you can look at the one for younger writers: FIVE PUZZLE PIECES OF A STORY
I will compile the horses' names and colors on FRIDAY (I will not worry about picking a specific breed of horse. Mostly I'm interested in colors and names for my stories) and I will put up the poll as soon as I can, but don't look for it until Saturday, because you guys are coming up with so many great ideas that it will take me awhile to sift through the ideas and organize them into a poll.
The poll for the audio books of the CCA is overwhelmingly FOR having me record them. At this point, I will plan on doing that.
