Like. Less than you'd think even.
|i mean. they go on. and they're purple. so they stay.|
|o hai expensive boots|
I did not expect my boots to work.
I did expect my saddle pads to work.
|yeah she thinks i'm funny too|
Fortunately, I have more dressage pads and those seem to work ok for her shape.
|and that shape is hella sexy|
I knew my $$$$ Custom was never going to fit her and I know it's idiocy to buy a $$$$ saddle for a baby horse that's going to change shape dramatically unless you can afford to just keep buying them. Which yeah no. Not happening.
I scrounged up a saddle at a local consignment place that fits both of us well enough but won't completely break my heart to sell when the inevitable time comes.
|sad lil jump pad|
|hey baby. sad bridle.|
Now of course I have already ordered Ms Zoëbird her very own Topline Leather browband (custom specs omg can't wait!) buuuuut the wait time is killer and no matter how many times I'm like BUT LOOK AT THIS SAD BRIDLE WITH NO SPARKLES, I don't get to jump the line (sob) so I needed an interim browband also. Alyssa let me play with her cool new toy from Blackjak Refinery and with my great sense of restraint, I ordered my own immediately.
|rainbow hematite. i think yes.|
Well like 85% of horses on the planet wear a 5" bit. So my entire collection is 5" bits. And one 5.5" because there was a sale.
Guess where this is going.
Oh and halters? Hahahahahahaha shut up. When Roxie's mom dropped Ms. ZB off, she handed me a rope halter and was like "this fits weird. you can have it."
|just. weird. not bad.|
She's not wrong. It does fit weird. It also goes on Zoëbird pretty ok, so we use it on the daily.
My inner optimist stuck Courage's fancy clinician-style stiff rope nose-knot halter on her...
Yeah it just straight up doesn't fit. Her smooshy nose barely goes in it and the tie throatlatch is BARELY long enough.
|someone should slap my inner optimist|
So uh. Possibly there was some late night online shopping that hopefully rectified this situation. I'll keep you posted.
Oh. And. We're not even talking about bonnets, ok? WE'RE JUST NOT.
I mean. I guess I would have been disappointed if I didn't get to shop for her. Silver lining?
