Fair enough :) That's refreshing... someone who's clueless and actually admits it. Not too many of those around. Best thing about the clueless ones is that they quite often sell their stuff for well below its value just because they don't know it's worth more. I've been tempted a few times to buy something purely to sell on because it was for sale for less than half its true value.
...but I don't do "selling on"... if this Stubben doesn't fit my gelding, it's still staying here in the hopes that it will fit something I own down the track!
Haha yeah I'm just a bit of a hoarder :P I have... something like 20 rugs between two horses, and ONE of those is Magic's. The others are all my gelding's. Or the wrong size. As for saddles, I personally own 5, only ever use 3 of them. I'm a halter hoarder but my lead ropes keep getting broken, lost, or simply disappear off my halters [I suspect there's something fishy going on there, we never find them], so I presently have one lead rope between two horses, but 6 or 7 halters. I hoard bits too, never know when you'll need it after all!
I'm also a bucket hoarder but that's for practical purposes. I use old suppliment buckets as feed scoops [only small suppliment buckets though!], all sizes from 2L right the way up to 240L for feed and the multiple additives... and 20L buckets with lids are brilliant for moving/storing my horse's grain feeds when I'm taking him away to a show or a clinic for a weekend. I "hoard" feed bags because I can't be bothered throwing them out, and if you look in my sharps container, apparently I hoard used needles/syringes too... but that's what happens I guess, we had a horse for a while that HAD TO have injections every 6 weeks to be pasture sound... eventually the injections stopped working and he was euthed, but that works out to a huge number of used needles/syringes! And there's a used suture cutter in there as well from taking the stitches out of Magic's leg.
Ohmygod... I can see this coming on badly with me -blushes- I NEED more lead ropes but of course they have to match my halters, except for some reason I can't find any leads to match my halters, so of course I buy more halters to match my new lead ropes... dreadful... hahaha
...and I have a million flymasks too, I forgot to mention those!
Edit; oddly, the one thing I barely have enough of is saddle pads. I have one jumping pad, one dressage pad, one half pad, and one show pad... that's it. Oh and a purple puffer pad I never use.
Naw, we all hoard stuff. My addiction is halters with matching lead ropes, and saddle pads! LOL!
I have the same disease......I have several halters...piles of lead ropes and many many many saddle pads that haven't even been used yet.
Honestly, the saddle pads get me, I see a cute color and I buy it.....I keep waiting for the ones im currently using to die but they look too good to donate yet...ugh. What is it with these well made saddle pads! :P
They got back to meeee!! My saddle is a 1995 baby, meaning it's 17 years old turning 18 [same age as my horse haha]. Going on Speed's experience that means I could have it for 30+ years if I look after it! Maybe even 40 or 50. That seems like such a long time to me. I'm only 18!
