So. First I went to the tack store sale. I had a whole list of things to look for, and in true form, they had literally none of the things I needed in a useful size. Fail. HOWEVER, they did have a kerritts coat that was wind resistant and water-proof in my size, 35% off. The initial price was almost $200, so I wasn't too sure even though I desperately needed a new coat.
Hm... I did find wormer for $3, a nice new body brush, and exchanged my gullet plate for the correct size. (Pony mare likes Wide, for the record. No other sizes than wide.) I finally decided to get the coat and a flaming blue lunge whip. Once at the counter, they figured in discounts from the sale, plus some more stuff I had on consignment, and I walked out having spent $99 to get well over $200 worth of stuff. That is always a win in my book.
Oh, and when I checked email when I got to work, I found out that Tack of the Day had $200 paddock boots in the size and color I wanted half price. They are ordered. Yay for the horrid dead boots getting retired soon!!
My Jimmy Wofford notes are at home... will recap later this week.
