to many times i see, parents dress their kids up in nice cool brand clothes because to them it makes them look like "good caring parents" same goes with animals..everyone in this days of living everything has to look nice on the outside.
heck i was going to buy miover $80 splint boots and i said hang on he doesnt jump, he doesnt do hard work, he doesnt do dressage..why the heck does he need $80 splint boots to walk in a paddock,or walk in circles in a pen,
i brought him $50 weatherbeata fly repelent boots, he destroyed them within 5 mins of putting him back in paddock
i ask myself is it a NEED or a WANT
i could buy him a nice weatherbeata winter rug, but why when he has a winter rug,
i would be spending $500 on a rug thats just gunna make him "look good" makes no sense. miover doesnt give a hoot on what he wears LOL it is me that cares.
there could be a horse in another paddock with a patched up ugly looking rug, doesnt mean he is loved any less, just means owners are very good at bugeting LOL
which i do the same i patch up holes, since i wont buy him a coat each week because of a hole.
i wonder how any horse owners buy stuff for there horses that just sit in tack shed because there is no need for that item LOL
