Putting the cart, er... saddle, before the horse

We continue to prepare to have horses. If you are at all aware of the equine world, you will know that inexpensive and horses do not go together. Besides the actual animal itself, there is a lot you need. So when I saw a notice that someone was selling a bulk lot of horse supplies for a pretty fair price, I jumped on it.

Three saddles, not in pristine shape, but decent enough for trail or casual riding. Some girths, stirrup irons, a huge stack of breeches, an even bigger stack of horse blankets of various weights, feed buckets, hoof picks, halters, fly masks, and a few show coats are just some of the things J. and I hauled home today. It was a good deal even if some of the things don't end of up working. I do have a little repair work to do on some of the blankets, but that is something I can manage.

So to recap... horse trailer? Check. Saddles? Check. Blankets? Check.

Fencing? No....

Some kind of shelter? No....

And thus no horse.

I have a new article published. As many clicks and shares as I can get are deeply appreciated. What Writing an Adoption Blog Did for Me
