What happens when you mix 3 chatty Equestrians? 21 Q’s with Girl About The Yard & Leah Grange Blog …

What happens when you take 3 chatty Equestrians with a love of blogging, mix them with some wine, and fire 21 questions at them?!
Well … I’m about to tell you!

Social media is the most incredible platform, and whilst friendships blossom, we share tips and tricks, and we shop our next purchases, it can also be a place where truth is blurred and it’s hard to see beyond the pretty pictures, perfect lives and idyllic homes.

Myself, Leah (Leah Grange Blog) and Verena (Girl About The Yard) joined forces to bring some light hearted, fun and real responses into the world- unfiltered! These quick fire questions were on the spot and unplanned! A little different to my usual blogs, but we all wanted to share some much needed fun, and reality, during these testing times.
