Too boring to title

I had really high hopes for some saddle time this weekend, but alas. The best laid plans.....
Friday night the auction was a little disappointing. Great company, but the tack selection was pretty limited. On the plus side, I didn't really need to spend money, so at least there were less temptations? I did end up buying a western breastcollar that looked like it would match my western saddle, and I only spent $6, so I'll call that a win.
Saturday and Sunday were still pretty cold, despite what I thought was an encouraging forecast. I always forget that just because the high might be close to freezing, doesn't mean that's what the "feels like" temp will be, silly me! DH and I spent some quality time on the couch with the dogs getting him  hooked on Sherlock.
Cici helped me finish a good book.
Today started bright and early with a knock on the door from the sheriff. There were loose horses in the road in front of our house, and as we're one of the few properties on this road with horses, obviously the assumption was made that they were ours. Luckily, mine were where I left them last night (in their stalls, in the barn). DH helped corral them and eventually their owner was found.
It is supposed to warm up a little today, so I'm hoping to ride this afternoon. In the meantime, I'm getting ready to start a tack room cull and sell some items to hopefully fund something sparkly (damn you Teresa and Aimee for being such enablers hahaha).

  3. Tack purging! I did that myself over the summer. I still have 3 western saddles that I will never use sitting in my tack room because I'm convinced the moment they are gone I'll need them...and I don't even ride western.

    1. Cici is always up in my business 😂 ewwww for traveling somewhere even colder -- at least that will make coming home even nicer? Time off is occasionally good for brains, I think he'll be fine. He's such a good egg! And then you'll be so ready to ride again once you're home and it's warmer!

  5. I think I want to be one of your horse's in my future life. Napping with food within reach is basically heaven for me...
