|i really love this picture|
sure could use teal boots
They did not. Which is fine. But since I was already so far off the beaten path, it made sense to go just a little farther to see if the next tack store had said dream boots.
They did not.
But what they did have was the purple version of my beloved teal reins.
Now I know buying purple reins is the opposite of solving the teal boots problem but here's the thing: when has a little detail like that even slowed me down when I decide to go full tack ho?
Fact: it has not.
So then I had purple reins and I was headed back in a more usual direction when I drove past A THIRD TACK STORE that does like fancy custom cowboy shit and that I have never been to because A) it's far away from me and B) while I love playing cowboys, I'm not going to drop $$$$ on a legit set up to toodle around in.
But on a day like that, why wouldn't I stop?
|she's in as long as there's snacks|
Even with the purple reins, I was trying to stay on message. I got a little bogged down debating what local friends I might be able to talk into producing a couple babies so I could justify the ADORABLE child's western saddle I found but even with that, TEAL BOOTS GODAMMIT. Teal. I already have the fancy matching pad. Let's go.
Do you know what I saw on the shelf at store #3?
And hey! Guess who just happened to have two thumbs and matching reins?
I did browse the whole display but there was simply no teal to be found. None at all.
|i mean everything is her color but HELLO|
I admire your dedication to the matchy matchy and yes! You need a purple saddle pad now!ReplyDelete
Haha yes the super nice salesperson at tack store #3 was like "I admire your commitment but like my boots aren't even usually the same color" and I was like "um yeah but I have one horse and like matching".Delete
If I'm keeping track correctly, you need both teal boots AND a purple saddle pad. Guess you'll have to do some more driving to another cowboy store...ReplyDelete
I feel like I started down a slippery slope of having multiple western outfits instead of just one.Delete
But the real question is, do you have a purple plaid shirt with those tassel thingies?ReplyDelete
No fringe for me! I do love plaid tho.Delete
Everything about this is so perfect, lolReplyDelete
I can't stop the tack ho.Delete
That purple looks amazingReplyDelete
My suggestion here is to ask any one of said tack stores to Order the teal boots for you. The store that has purple can likely get them for you. And a pad. You're welcome.ReplyDelete
You clearly overestimate my patience.Delete
How many of those conchos can one add and still be considered legally sane?ReplyDelete
I think as long as I stay under the "barrel racer" threshold, it's probably fine.Delete
