Playing Catch Up

I am so tired. I was an hour late to work this morning because I fell asleep at home and obviously didn't wake up on time.


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.


  1. Hooray for awesome and horribly tempting sales!

  2. GREAT deals!! I have been staying far, far away from the tack shops. I cant possibly justify buying anything new right now! But maybe as a treat for myself soon.
    Can't wait to hear all about the JW clinic :)

  3. Oh, I could spend hours in a tack shop!

  4. Great to find great deal on stuff we need. I always seems to luck out and pay full price for everything. Looking forward to hearing about the clinic.

  5. Nothing like a sale to brighten my day. 20% at our local tack shop this week and that includes feed, so I'll stock up.

    Looking forward to the clinic notes.

  6. Can't wait to hear the JW clinic report!

    I scored a pair of Mountain Horse tall boots off of TOTD last week. I am very very excited for them to get here.
