I know it! I just finished my inventory of non-depreiable items for FFA. (between show clothes, tack, grooming stuff, disposables, and books) I own no saddle, no chaps, no WP show shirts; nothing over $100 in value.

I estimated I have about $1,000 worth of stuff right now. And I can say that will be a chunk of change when I go to buy my first horse.

I bought tons of grooming brushes before I got back into horses after having several years away and not having any of my "old things" A tack shop was going out of business and I couldnt help myself :p

Tack *****...lol , I love that!
There is a 4H tack swap coming up but my hubby & I are going to a sportsman show that very same day, if I dont go he'll know why....

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

Hahaha!!!

Unless its shiny or a pretty color, I don't buy it. And it definately is coming home if it meets both those requirements!

I'm very glad Abby happens to look good in purple (though her best colour would be turquoise..I'm not buying new tack anytime soon) because I got my bright halter before her. I have a bright purple Reinsman pad, my saddle's seat is purple ostrich. Her SMBs and bell boots are bright purple. Hahaha.

I want a pair of fancy boots for myself. I love my Ariats, but they're not exactly flashy anymore because of what happened this summer (see picture below). It's been sewn back together and there's a big patch over it. I oiled the boots to match the patch better, but it's very plain and just looks odd now. They still do their job though.

The second picture is basically what the patch looks like, but plain brown leather. I duct taped it right afterwards because if I tried wearing them without the other piece, I would destroy my ankle. (I was also working at camp and had to wear them for the rest of the week before I could get them to the leather guy in town).

Well...I'm not allowed down the fishing asile anymore.

And poesidon, that reminds me of a pair of socks I had that the entire bottom toe part had ripped, but I still wore them until my mother threw them away and forced me to buy new ones.

My friend works at RCC on random weekends so she gets a 40% discount, so I may splurge.

I was working a rental this summer, but not as a wrangler. I had free time because I didn't have a cabin, so I'd come down after all of my stuff was done and help with trail rides with the wranglers. I was riding Po, but was late, so I was almost loping to catch up. I HATE the feeling of my ankles being all sweaty in the middle of the July heat, so I tuck in my jeans into my boots.

Po was trotting next to the fence and there was a bolt and washer sticking out just enough to catch the loop at the top. Since she was going fairly fast, it just tore my boot in half. It took a bit of effort to dislodge the torn half.

I split a pair of old Levis that day too. It was just fantastic. Hahah.

Just think what that could have done to your SKIN!!!

Once when I was a kid I was trotting along bareback and another kid was trotting toward me (on a saddled horse) and she passed so close to me that MY foot caught in her stirrup, ripped it around so fast that it sprained my ankle!! all without me touching the ground!

Ow ow ow ow ow!

And I knoww! Someone mentioned that afterwards. I hadn't thought of it right away. I was just shocked because I had only had the boots for a year.

This is what it looks like now. It only cost about $15 to fix. It's just kind of ugly on that side and water can get in through the very bottom of the seam.
