Something New, Something Used, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

I have a boat load of horse stuff all tangled up in my brain right now and I'm having a hard time sorting through it all.  So, I think instead of dealing with it, I'll just sort out all the ridiculous shit I recently bought (gift cards and Christmas money sure are handy).  Something new, something used, something borrowed, something blue.  Shit - I could wear this stuff to my wedding!

  • Something new - Okay, I lied.  A few things are new.
  1. I got a full set of XC boots from Majyk Equipe.  Thanks Riding Warehouse for your bomb ass sales.  I feel like this was a necessity purchase, and had to happen at some point.
  2. PS of Sweden Marshmallow browband.  Think pearls and lots of bling.  Decidedly NOT a necessity, but I'm considering it part of my 30th birthday present to myself.

  • Something used
  1. A used Equine Comfort sheepskin pad.  Craigslist for $50.  I bought some sheepskin soap to go with it, so in total it was about $65.  Its in pretty good shape, so I'd call this a good deal!
  • Something borrowed
  1. This happens constantly (see main and tail conditioner).  I'm sure this annoys my friend, but I like to think she uses my wound care spray a lot.
My horsey friend crocheted this awesome scarf for me and in my colors - god she knows me too well!!! <3

  • Something Blue
  1. PS of Sweden navy fleece halter.  Purely fluff.  I thought the beastie would look magical in it.  He does.
  2. A tipperary eventing vest in navy.  Also a necessity purchase.  This purchase also has the added bonus of really making my mom happy.  ;)

I almost feel like I have a tack purchasing hangover.  Some of the stuff felt like a necessity, but the PS of Sweden accessories definitely weren't.  Ah well - we all go a bit overboard every once in a while.
