fearrington beltiesJust a quick post to ask a favor from Write Naked readers. For those of you who follow me on Twitter @writenaked or Instagram @taralynne0 you may have seen photos over the past three months that involved an adorable Beltie cow. I was selected as one of the participants in the Fearrington Village #BeltieGram contest. Participants travel with a small stuffed cow and post photos on Twitter and Instagram. Today I learned I was selected in the top 5 out of 1,200 entries!

Beltie came with me to a writing workshop at a vineyard

“Got a hoof cramp. Just finished a writing workshop with Piedmont Laureate Carrie Knowles at Benjamin Vineyards.”


Beltie went many places, including a ‘royal high tea’…

‘Need any cream in that tea? #Beltiegram ‘High Teat’ at the Washington Duke Inn, Durham.’

The five most creative photo captions were selected and from today until October 15th votes are being gathered.

A ‘vote’ is a ‘like’ on the facebook photo in the Fearrington Facebook Photo Album. Click that link or the image below, flip through the five pictures and ‘like’ my photo of Beltie on the Grand Canal in Venice – it’s the fifth photo in the album and looks like this:

Thanks in advance!
