When you can go into a store be there for 15 minutes and come out with a new pair of runners for yourself, but you go into 2 different stores looking for a halter for your horse and you come out empty handed because they didn't have the right color or they were low quality. (Side note, Peavey Mart here in Canada sells higher quality halters than Tractor Supply in Minot. That disappointed me.)

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

I noticed that too with Tractor Supply at least around here in Wisconsin. The quality of the halters they're now carrying is rather poor. Same with the Blain's Farm & Fleet around here. The prices are the same thought, go figure. At-least the horse fairs are coming back soon, so I can get some quality stuff again. You can never have enough take for your horses IMO! Besides my girls look good in their pink gear.

Peavey Mart at least carries Weaver brand halters. I usually tie my own halters but wanted to buy a decent webbing one for my new mare and possibly one for my gelding. I was down in Minot for renewing my passport (the joys of being a U.S. Citizen living as a landed immigrant in Canada), so I thought I'd look for a halter because everything seems cheaper in the States.

A lot of horse tack is poor quality an overall cheap, IDK if that's what folks want now or stores are buying up the cheap Chinese made stuff that's flooding this country. Selling it for nearly the same price as the quality ones just so they can increase profit margin on each item sold. When it comes to my horse I don't want cheap, I want quality. Luckily I got a stock pile of halters, leads, reins, etc. I just can't pass up nice stuff for the Mares, the spoiled rotten brats that they are! LOL!!

when you feel guilty buying a new top or dress for $20 even though yours don't fit / are stained but when you realise you need a kersey wool saddle cloth to hunt in you don't flinch at the $70 price tag!

You always keep a xtra hoof pic in your purse, your whipps have names, your horses eat better than you do, theres a pic of your horse in your wallet, grab for something from your jacket pocket and hay falls out, and your jeep has hauled more than most trucks.

You walk outside to fill the horses' water and instead of being glad someone else has already done it, you're irritated, because they didn't do it right. And they let the two Houdini mares into the least secure pasture on the property while they were at it.

when you drive a 1000 dollar truck, and ride a 2000 dollar saddle
When you have a 1000 dollar truck puling a 20,000 dollar trailer
When you weigh every purchase against how many round bales it equals
