|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.
Nice wraps look smart I think. Such a clean look. I had missed that post about liners, so am glad to see. Always up for education! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Hahaha... too funny! Now would you pleeeeze do a post about how to do those wraps?ReplyDelete
I second this request!Delete
I've done two legs one time. Let me get the hang of it first. ;-)Delete
I could have predicted any horse owned by you would secretly become a Euro princess horse ;)ReplyDelete
LOL @ Laruen, that's funny.ReplyDelete
But also - I need these I think. I mean, I don't have anything to wrap them on right now, but obviously, if you buy them- Brad will come...
The Eskadrons are $47 and some change at Smartpak ANNNND they have 16% off right now for their anniversary. One could order two sets at that price.Delete
Huh, the other types must have just hit him funny or something! That's crazy,ReplyDelete
How 'bout that? He does look smashing in those wrapsReplyDelete
I love those wraps because they look like leg warmers and I LOVE THE NINETIES. This little Courage development is quite interesting too.ReplyDelete
How old are you? No one wore leg warmers in the 90s. That is a shameful episode from the 80s and I promise you there are absolutely no pictures of me in leg warmers at all.....Delete
Thank you Shannon - leg warmers went along with everything must be neon. I still have nightmares...Delete
I love using polo's. So much so that I need to drag all of them (about 4 sets) to the Laundromat along with saddle pads, to wash everything this weekend. Shhhhhh! Don't tell them I'm coming. I love the blue ones at the bottom. Those are a gorgeous color. Me Wants!!!ReplyDelete
lolz of course he's a princess. OBVIOUSLY. hahaReplyDelete
So fancy! Omg! I must have them! **grabby hands**ReplyDelete
