Today, I was brushing my horse as a girl ran into the tack room and emerged with a coral colored saddle pad. Hmmm. I didn't know anyone else had one that color.
So after I stick my horse in the stall, I check out my tack cubby - and my new coral colored saddle pad is missing. What to do?
So I follow her down to where her parents are loading up her horse and say, "I am sure that you didn't mean to take my saddle pad .....but...
Then I reach inside her truck, where her mother is driving, and take it back.
She says, Oh. I don't have a saddle pad and I need one.
What am I, a tack store?
As I am taking it back to the tack cubby, I decide it wouldn't hurt me to loan it to her. So I hand it to her and ask her to wash it before she returns it. Because this is a small community of horse people and I would prefer to get along - and also get my stuff back. I do wonder if I would have ever seen it again if I hadn't snatched it out of her truck.
