Tuesday night the tack store we use in Strathmore, K & K Livestock, had a pre stampede BBQ. I had wanted a few things, so I thought I might as well go. This is the only tack store I think I have been to that has food everytime I go there.
I showed up around 5:30, an hour later than I had planned because as I was driving through Drum I got a flat tire and since I didn't want to change it myself (mostly just didn't want to get the spare out) I stopped at the tire place and had them fix it. It took an hour! Wow I'm pretty sure that was a little long, but at least I could relax while they did it.
Jardi was there and she talked me into getting a breast collar. I had been thinking of getting another one for my wade saddle since I moved the one I used to use on it to my cutting saddle. I had a little narrow really pretty one with pink swarski crystals on it that match Kali's bridle, but it is too smal for Razz and looks silly.
So I ended up buying this one with flowers on, they are not the same flowers as my saddle, but close enough I think. I have to show a picture on the stand cause I felt bad that it was so hot I didn't want to saddle a horse even just to take a picture today. Sure would have been nice to take a ride or work with jamaica, but 33 is a little to warm for me and I feel bad for the ponies too. I guess I either have to get up earlier, stay up later, or wait for a more reasonable day.
I also got a mane brush, conditioner and some chin straps. I had 3, and since I like a seperate bridle for each horse thet meant I was stealing off a different bridle all the time, what a nusience. So now all the bridles have thier own.
I had a hamburger and homemade donuts and butter tarts, mmmmm. I'm glad I went even if I wasn't planning on buying the breast coller, I love it now and I'm sure I will as soon as I get a chance to ride when its not so hot out.
