Taffy Character Quiz

How well do you know Taffy, Andi’s best equine friend? There were a great number of entries, but apparently, they were a little harder than I anticipated (even after giving you those book and chapter hints). Three contestants got 100%. Amelia, Ruth Anne, and Zoey. I drew a winner and it is Zoey. Congratulations! If you are an international winner, please let me know so I can choose another winner. I figure you internationals are having fun with the contest, even knowing I can’t ship outside the U.S.

  1. I don’t think the answers for number 3 are correct. I looked it up and they don’t match what I found in the book.🙂


    1. I’m not sure what you are asking. Sorry. If you are asking how do you know if you get the right answers, I post the answers when I announce the winner. 🙂 So, come back on . . . I think next Thursday (January 27) and you can see the answers and find out how many you got right.


    1. It doesn’t come right out and say it, but it’s the backflash of when Andi got Taffy that will help find the answer. And it’s chapter 7 of the anniversary (blue cover) Long Ride Home. The original might have the backflash in chapter 6.
