Xmas list!

Okay so my brother came home Saturday from the Marines, and he told me that I needed to make a list of what I want! But all I can think of is what I need for my horses! like Bell boots,, sport boots, polo wraps, and other horse things. What else should I ask for?

My wish list is 90% horse stuff. It drives my (very non-horsey) family crazy.

^^Same here. Even when I do what clothes, or something for myself, it all has to do with horses. ;D

haha well me and my mom are horse people and my dad and brother arent and it drives them crazy but my dad gets my hay and is building my stalls and things in the barn. my mom told the family to give me cash its easier then me explaining, red cross, size large, sport boots. with matching bell boots and ending up getting the wrong thing. so i might just ask him to come with me but i dont want my mom to yell at me for letting him get me sport and bell boots...

Me and my boyfriend have been together over 6 years and he STILL has no clue what to get me, EVER lol. What I did this year was go on my favorite horse websites and sent him a link to what I wanted and specified size and color. The past few days he's really emphasizing that he doesn't EVER do online shopping, So I'm pretty sure I got at least one of the things on my list, I only put 3 things, a saddle carry bag, a pair of mt horse winter tall boots and a bridle(which was the cheapest of all on the list ) I'm wondering if he will have it shipped to his moms house so I don't see it when it comes in the mail lol

PS: I'll be super disappointed if I don't get at least one of the things I specifically asked for, really need those winter boots!

My list for any holiday is always horse stuff. 11 years later, my hubby understands my obsession and gives in :) I'm currently trailer shopping, woot!

My dad is rehabbing my old jumps for me, it's been a long time since they've seen regular use. I'm assuming he's making me new brush/flower boxes too because he asked my mom if he could cut up her old fake christmas tree lol!

my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)

If my brother came home from the Marines I would tell him that him being home is all I need.

I assume that x-miss = x-mas = Christmas.

If you are asking someone who knows nothing about horses for something horse for Christmas you need to make it easy for them to succeed and get the right item. Telling a non-horse person that you want bell boots is like speaking a foreign language to them.

Send him links to the item you want and give him sizes and colors.
