1. POST a COMMENT on our website on any of the pages. (Feel free to do this even if you are not entering the contest. 🙂 )
2. Write an essay on WHY YOU LOVE FARMING! You might want to include also a little bit about who the heifer would be for and how you are able to take care of her and prepare for her becoming a cow. EMAIL your essay to: firstname.lastname@example.org (If you have problems getting through VIA email, contact me through the website by commenting to this post.)
The WINNER of the contest will become the new owner of our most recent born calf, a heifer by the name of AMETHYST! Amethyst was born December 31, 2010.
Contest rules: There must be a minimum of 10 entries for the contest to become validated (we have recieved 10 by now, so it’s official!). Contest ends on March 15, 2011. Winner of the contest must pick up or arrange for hauling of the calf, at their expense, within 30 days. Any additional testing needed for transport will be at the expense of the winner. Registration papers will be transferred at the expense of Spirited Rose and will be sent with the calf. We reserve the right to change any rules about the contest or to cancel the contest completely if necessary. In reading the essays, we feel that it is important to ask if those entering the contest are willing to have their stories posted to the public. (Please note your preference in your email.) We would enjoy the opportunity to post the winning entry for others to read.
*** We have had some questions about where we live. We are located in MARYLAND and would be willing to deliver the animal for the cost of fuel within a 6 hour drive of us. Another option, if you win, you may ask us to sell the heifer and we will donate the money to a charity or organization of your choice!
