Help me find horsey stuff that I don't know I want!
My 10-year-old half chaps just died, so I'm ordering these this weekend. If anyone has the Tredstep half chaps, do they really run that large? I have 15.5 inch calves...naked...
DH says they count towards my Xmas pressies because they were on the list he was getting me, they just died earlier than planned. Ok...seems unfair .
The only other thing on my list is the iBall Wireless Trailer Hitch Camera as suggested by another COTHer. I hate having to hop out and check two or three times while hooking up by myself, AND I think we can use it for watching horses in the trailer(s) based on the reviews.
Horsey is in training and coming home soon. He has blankets, boots, bridles, saddle pads. He grew two inches in the last 1.5 months but when we brought the blanket down, it still fit. He doesn't have shipping boots... But I'm not sold on shipping boots being necessary. Do I want shipping boots? I've hauled him with just bell boots. Do I want a nice leather girth? He went from a 46'' to a 50'' in a span of a couple months, but I think he should start slowing down. I hope...
I have breeches, cold weather clothes (well, moon suit with self-sustaining heater would be nice....), boots. I was thinking of a helmet cam?? Maybe?? Like I need an excuse to take more video/pictures of my critters... And maybe a new helmet? My CO is five years old.
Beyond that, I'm out of ideas! Help! I've been kvetching about all the money we've spent on DH's toys this year (two $$$ rifles, new smart phone at full price, he's starting a rawhide braiding business and rawhide isn't cheap...), so he says fine, give him a list. Um...well...crap!!
No kidding. But you'd think, like cars, when a model is a few years old some of the price gets knocked off... but noooooooo. However they offering more colors now. Hmmm. Mine old one is black/black, but that brown looks yummy.
My MIL gave me a $$ gift certificate for my birthday--not quite enough for full-custom boots though. I ended up buying a Voltaire girth because it is not something I ever would have bought or been able to afford otherwise. Now it's here and i love love love it! http://en.voltaire-design.com/accessories.html
