|every princess sparkles!!|
Of course, I promptly bought a set.
Now before you're all "OMG SB YOU ARE THE WORST" (which I am, but that's immaterial), know that I sucked it up and bought knock offs. Of course everyone wants the Eskadron liners, but they're $50 for a set and that's a lot to spend on something you don't know how to use.
So instead, I bought the Roma knock offs, which are not nearly as cool, but can be had for $20 shipped. (And yes, that is a link to horseloverz, and no, I do not recommend buying from them. I did it and I regret it.)
There is obviously a technique to this that I needed help with. Let's face it: those look like bad standing bandages, and that's super insulting to someone who actually wraps GOOD standing bandages.
Ouch. Mega embarrassing.
Needless to say, I took them off, stuck them in my trunk, and pretended they didn't exist until I could talk a fancy friend into coming out to teach me how to use them.
|kind of a princess|
|justification for an extensive wrap collection|
After the first ten or so steps, he's capable of walking like a normal horse again, but he does this every.single.time. I wrap his hind legs. Oh, and he's so narrow behind that I wrap/boot his hind legs for every.single.ride to prevent turning them into hamburger.
|note added thickness of liners|
As per the usual, I leg him forward with a wary eye on his hind legs.
HE WALKED OFF LIKE A TOTALLY NORMAL HORSE.
For serious. Not even a hint of wrap dance. Just stepped forward, tracking up, calm and smooth as can be.
I never thought I'd see the day. For real.
Who knew my little cheapie OTTB was secretly a European princess horse.
