    Suggestions for a horsey Dad for xmas?

    I'm really starting to get annoyed with myself now. Christmas with my Dad's family isn't until the 29th but I still have nothing for him. It's so bad that I don't even have any bad ideas of what to get him.

    He got a new horse this year. A paint mare named Birdie. She's a great trail horse. So I thought that christmas would be easy this year since we had something like this in common, but I still can't come up with anything for him!

    He also likes vintage motorcycles (he just bought a BMW with a sidecar), history and politics.

    The problem is that he just buys stuff that he wants and he doesn't need any tack because he makes harness for a living... He's so hard to buy for!

    Ugh, anyone out there have any suggestions??

    Did you never ask him if there was anything special that he might want?

    Is he more of the practical type that would appreciate a useful gift or does he lean more toward the romantic type that would appreciate something heartfelt even if there is no real use for it?

    For a more practical person, perhaps a load of feed or a pre-paid farrier visit.

    For a more romantic type person, maybe get a good picture of him and Birdie and have it enlarged and put into a nice frame.

    LOL, can you tell that I was never very good at buying Christmas gifts either?

    Matching halter and lead, gift card to tack store, bucket of a couple new brushes and treats, shampoo and conditioner with some cowboy magic or show sheen? New reflective gear for the horse and or your dad for next season? New pitch fork and broom? Cute little album of a few pictures of them? A personalized mug with a picture of Birdie on it

    I could come up if more and more and more :) Be creative, you know he will appreciate whatever it is you get him :)
