I have done a lot of selling old tack the past 9 months or so and.... because I am a typical tack-hoarding equestrian, I've been buying new stuff as I sold the old stuff. Our return to showing this year is my excuse. We need to be prepared and look good.... right?? And I'm a sucker for a good deal.
Mom-made fly bonnets. Twister hates bugs in his ears. Even more he hates his own forelock blowing in his ears. Hates. Also, the Micklem is new... well used but new to us. And he is awesome in it. Love.
Open fronts. My Woof boots were falling apart :( And M gave me her rope halter because mine was a piece of crap so that I can do my natural horsemanship ground work bonding with Twister without having a halter come unknotted..... Not sure I like the open fronts. And I think his ankles are too big for them. So I might be selling them on and just getting new, non-falling apart Woof boots.

Dress-ige (pronounced like Dom Schramm says it) saddle, girth and pad. Pad was a bday gift from Mom. I sold the bridle after I bought my Micklem and I got the saddle and girth around Christmas too. It's not the nicest but fits Twister well. Tough 1 boots again.

Basically, he's a very spoiled only child at the moment who is also maybe getting a little brother. My person and I have been looking for another stock-type horse for him to ride. And I think we finally found one! More on that if it works out and he comes home this coming week.
And I would love to find a western saddle that's doesn't cost more than Twister did when S bought him in the sale barn 8 years ago that fits both Twister and myself. Because I'm giving up on riding in a western saddle. Can I team rode with T in an English saddle????
