What horse related things have you lost?

My Mom is 93. As a child her Dad (my Grandfather) was enamored with Man O' War and so they traveled to see him after he retired from racing. Mom was young...so I'm guessing about about 1937.
She got to pet him, meet the trainer, etc.
She had an album filled with beautiful pictures of Man O' War, her with him, etc., enlargements that could be framed.
About 10 years ago a cousin visits Mom, and unbeknown to me shows it and then GIVES it to him!!!!!
I would have loved it.
I really don't know this cousin, even where he lives...I can't ask for it back. He may have tossed it.
Anyone lost things like this?

I usually don't lose or get rid of my equine related possessions (read hoarder) but quite often I hide stuff from myself and then can't remember where. I also tend to keep horses until the end so I have lost more of them then I like to think about.

Anything that I forget to put away back in my trailer after using is lost. Sometime temporarily and sometimes forever.

This^^^. Or its somewhere where I wouldnt forget where I put it -.

Somewhere buried in the attic is my 1980s something handwritten, notebook when I researched the Straight Egyptian Arab bloodlines back to their beginnings.

Man-O-War - I was 23 when I had my picture taken in front of his statue. My then new husband was red-faced embarrassed to see me so overwhelmed that I was crying my fool head off just as a bus load of tourists were walking toward the statue. He had no idea what he was in for, lollol

Well, quite a few dressage whips. Why don't they make them in blaze orange?

Hoof picks. They don't last very long, so i keep a few for when i lose the one in my box. At the moment, I've two ordinary metal picks and one with a brush.

Avna - TSC had a set (one time joke I think) - just one set. A crop, dressage whip, driving whip and lunge whip. This was several years a go. I showed up fortuitously on a day I searching for a present for someone that always complained of losing them. She still has everyone BUT the dressage whip that went AWOL.


My brushes like to play hide and seek.

Just horses - three in the last five years - one was 32, one 28, one 34. I keep things till they wear out. Although we did lose a saddle and some blankets in a burglary seven years ago. It was covered by insurance and I got an even better saddle I'm super happy with. The stolen one was a new purchase but had some issues and then I decided to spend $500 more to get something that was extra good.
