    Yup, I've been on and off trying to learn how to sew for a few years. This company called Suitability sells all sorts of horsie patterns that I was too scared to try until recently lol.

    I'd buy one! In red and black for our English shows and teal and brown/tan for our western shows.

    Thanks ladies, I've thought of doing that... I need a little more practice first. Plus I'd need a way to keep costs down on fabric...that little hood was about $30.00 in dance/swimsuit material, plus $5 for the elastic just on the cinch part O_O

    I am dying to try working with rhinestones. I've been reading the bling threads, and got myself both a hotfix gun and some of that e6000 glue.

    Drafty, did you ever bling out that browband?

    I'm finally starting to feel better, sinus infections are no fun. Luckily my appetite is slowly coming back.

    Demonwolf, no, I didn't. First my dog ate the original browband on my bridle and when I got it replaced by the local tack shop, the leather was just such nice quality that I couldn't bring myself to "ruin" it by blinging it. Lol. Not only that, but I really need to replace my English bridle because the one I have now is just crap. First I need a new job so that I can afford the new tack I need.

    Demon - I love that hood!! I'd want one if I had a horse who accepted things over his ears. May need you to make me a bright pink one for Nod - full body to keep her clean for the shows

    MHF - The offer to make a pond at mine still stands, cuppa tea and all As for my little man, his sleeping pattern since has been completely off - he's now sleeping from 9pm - 8am!!! No complaining here!

    I may have a new car tonight!! Yay!! *happy dance* It's an older ford fiesta and it's a manual... so between my ignorance to driving a manual, and the fact its a ford.. I give it a week til it's dead :) haha. My BIL picked it up Sun night, but wanted to do a bit of work on it before giving it to me. I'm going to have to learn what a clutch and gear stick is VERY quickly :)

    I'm going to be stuck at home today, but the Punchestown Festival is on and looking forward to seeing Sprinter Sacre surely cruise home for his 10th win in a row over fences - it's a shame I didn't have more racing festivals on telly to keep me entertained over the last few weeks!

    Sunday we had a nice day here, we could have gone riding but decided to do something together as a family. We had the bonus of MIL's nice car so off we went. There is very very little to do here for families, and we ended up at a "family farm" about an hour away. DS is farm animal obsessed, we can't drive by a field without his making the sound of whatever animal he sees... bing ireland I could be forgiven for thinking I have a lamb in the backseat! The kids had a great day:

    Maple, I got a crash course in driving a manual. Was still dating hubby back then, and his truck was manual. He had given me exactly one 15 minute lesson, which ended with me stuck on a hill and nearly in tears. We were at the barn we worked at, and he was riding the tractor. He stopped, came up to me and told me he had to go to the hospital NOW. (Turns out it was a kidney stone, but he didn't know that at first.) He was in so much pain he couldn't stand still, and he couldn't have gotten in my Camaro so I had to take him in his truck. He moaned like I was killing him every single time I accidentally jerked the truck while shifting gears. And at one point I had to cross three lanes of traffic to get off the side of the road for him to be sick. I never forgot how to handle a stick shift after that, lmao.
