I suspect I was at the same store as you last week., got new paddock boots, new show shirt, leather halter, tail bag. There was a lot more that I was tempted on.
Yeah, too bad I didn't know sooner. Pickings were scarce when I went. I pretty much got the last set of whatever I was looking for. Someone tried to snag the bridle I was getting right off my shoulder!
My boyfriend never used to like it when I bought new tack, he thought I was ridiculous for spending that much money. The other day he went out and spent about $10,000 on a new skidoo, I said 'Im happy for you hunny, do what makes you happy' He no longer gets mad when I buy tack.
Ohhhh if mine made faces about my purchases he'd be sleeping in his truck. Considering my horse pays for herself, and his truck expenses double my horses, if he EVER poo'ed about my horsey budget id put her POO right in his drivers seat.
