So just thought I should add Lizzy's expression when told about her new saddle. In the picture below imagine loud angry growling because that's what she was doing lol.

I'm going horse stuff shopping today! (Which just means I'm almost out of hay!)

The nearest saddlery is an hour away... but I'm always excited! I'm going to visit three (or four) while I'm down there! I wish there was something closer to where I lived though

You get your hay from the saddlery? Dangerous place lol, you walk in there, things are awesome and you're in heaven, and then when you walk out you somehow have a bigger debt on your credit card. Still trying to figure out what happens...

Nah I don't usually, but hay is much cheaper in Richmond than it is in the Mountains, and there are saddleries there! I bought a saddle blanket but not the one I thought I wanted because navy blue doesn't seem to match black saddles too well.

Oh and I just got an email from my new job - I have to go to an induction in SURRY HILLS (which is really far away)

Yeah, navy looks better with brown saddles. What colour did you end up getting?

Surry Hills is easy - don't worry. Just catch the express in to Central and it's well within walking distance. Some parts of Surry Hills are closer to Museum, though.

I got a black one, with white piping.

There weren't many options because it was for my stock saddle which is huge, and I didn't want a wool stock horse one. So I got a huge dressage one.

I just did my budget

I'm rethinking that maybe I should try to lease Rosie. Do you think there are many people interested in leasing around the region?

Entered myself and Snickers for our first endurance race this October, just 15 kilometers for starters. Let's see how it goes.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

lots more people looking to lease than buy in NSW at the moment. Check the want-to-lease ads first off, that's how I found Star's lessee fir my friend. Horseyard and the "Horses for sale NSW only" page on Facebook gave me my responses for Brock. Work out your lease terms first so you can respond promptly.

That's great Saranda!

Yeah I really have to think about it Doom, it'd be at their agistment place of choice and such, and I'd just be really worried they wouldn't take good enough care of her or something.

What's your real name Doom?

It's Doom! Really! Nahhh it's Meiko.

I know what you mean, I have the same worries about Brock...

Good luck Saranda! I'd love to do competitive endurance one day.
