Besides me (http://www.facebook.com/ThistleRidgeSkillBuilders)
In 5th place – IotaMc Hippus
In his “About” Section he says,
” Be who you are – everyone else is already taken. Come and snark with me as I start my career as a cultural icon and pet therapist.”
His Biography is very simple as you can see:
“I was born a small foal and grew. The I studied to become a therapy horse. I passed the test and now I’m looking to find some places to visit!
What I like about Iotamc Hippus is his daily posts. They are funny, though provoking and they make me smile. Take for example a resent post:
“The Lady’s in Chicago. Coho has an abscesses hoof. The grass is brown and brittle. And there’s a spider in my bucket. Happy freaking Monday.”
” I love all of you on this page, except for those who don’t have pet unicorns.”
His posts are fun and keep me interested. I often wonder What is IotaMc Hippus going to post today?

And balances it with a bit of fun, like this with her Wednesday word play:
“It’s Wednesday word play. Read the last word in the comment string and enter a new word as a new comment, the first thing that comes to mind. So for example if the word was navicular you might enter hoof. Last time we started with bale and ended up at trouble. ~ Clair”
