Who is Char?

We moved to Michigan in 2014 and fell in love with the scenery and the people. In 2016, we attended a Keuring event, which is a judging venue of Friesian foals, mares, and stallions. We were awestruck. We had only admired the horses in movies and were overwhelmed by their beauty up close. As spectators, we had tons of questions about the horses and the event and found the community willing to educate us. While talking to owners we soon learned that there was a need to support them and others in the equine industry with digital marketing and video support, so we’ve made that our mission.

We both love horses, we love road trips and we’d been looking for a way to work together. Seemed like a match made in heaven. SO, here we are, pooling our talents and passion, along with friends in the creative and tech industries, ready to support those in the Equine industry, starting with our Friesian friends.

Sorry I've been gone for SO long. Life has gotten in the way for the last few months but I am making my new year's resolution now...to get this blog back in gear.

However, today I am going to share something from someone who has become a respected friend. He recently posted his thoughts about how hard it is for an American to get a job in the UK. So, below are his thoughts (which I support). Thank you, Richard Mark Bazley.

I have always believed that The English have far more in common with our American cousins than Europe. I am lucky enough to have a Green Card and know how hard it is for Americans to work in The UK which is a disgrace. We let anyone else in. We should open our borders with the USA not Europe! It would not cause an imbalance influx but a well balanced reciprocal arrangement.
According to the American Community Survey in 2009 data, Americans reporting English ancestry made up an estimated 9.0% of the total U.S. population, and form the third largest European ancestry group after German Americans and Irish Americans.[84] However, demographers regard this as an under count, as the index of inconsistency is high, and many, if not most, people from English stock have a tendency to identify simply as Americans[85][86][87][88] or, if of mixed European ancestry, nominate a more recent and differentiated ethnic group.[89]
In the 2000 United States Census, 24,509,692 Americans described their ancestry as wholly or partly English. In addition, 1,035,133 recorded British ancestry.[90]
In the 1980 United States Census, over 49 million (49,598,035) Americans claimed English ancestry, at the time around 26.34% of the total population and largest reported group which, even today, would make them the largest ethnic group in the United States.[91][92]
