Spring Cleaning

Well, my horse is moving to a new stable, so I decided to do some spring cleaning, decide what goes up to the new stable and what stays home, and sort thru and clean out containers, buckets, and bags. Wow, what a mess. I threw away so much stuff. And I cleaned a few more things. I washed my Sports medicine boots, dirt and hair..i do feel better about getting it all organized and ready for this riding season. Hopefully I can keep it organized, but I highly doubt it. When I start riding a lot more and rushing home, I will not be placing everything in it's proper place.

Yeah, where I board Lexi, we pitched in & did some spring cleaning a few weeks ago. It wasn't that bad, but now it's nice & organized. :) It feels good to know everything's clean!

My tack boxes are a complete mess! I like to call it an organized mess

I know where everything is, it just doesn't look pretty.

I think I should go organize and take home things that I don't use

I hate spring cleanig! We just moved our house onto this land in december, and did the roofing and built the porch. So we have a ton of cleaning and landscapping to do this summer. My horse stuff is all very organaized. Other then my saddles, my husband keeps telling me he's going to build me a saddle stand. Hasn't happen yet! So all of our saddles, 6 of them, are in the back seat of my pick-up (Which BTW still doesn't have a hitch on it, I asked him to do that last spring!) Sorry for the rant!

During that "spring cleaning" I always seem to acquire tack I've never owned. People at the barn will leave things on my tack box and forget its there. I usually leave it there but after a month and a half of things still being there I just assume that they are now mine.

Doing that on top of my regular horse tack shopping of things I don't really need in the first place really adds up to new tack. Way to much stuff. 8)

I went through my tack box because I was going to clean all of my tack and I have 3 bridles I brought them all home, my mom wasnt too happy. Haha. But yea I cleaned out my tack box and brought home all of the crap that I NEVER use. You should see how neat and tidy it is now
