I am not a die hard shopper, unless it comes to all things horsey. I wasn't planning on buying much today besides grain and supplements for the ponies. But this morning I saw that JenJ was selling some tack so I took a look. I'm taking her 76 fly sheet for McKenna. I've noticed in our times working the outdoor arena that McKenna really doesn't like bugs flying around her. She'll shake her head and focuses more on being annoyed than on me. I was thinking that she'll probably be a bit of a diva about bugs in the summer so I was planning on getting her a fly sheet, fly mask, and probably the ear nets for when we ride. I'm so happy to get a sheet from a fellow blogger and for only $10!
My second unplanned black Friday deal was from SmartPak. I was looking at fly masks and ear nets and decided to check out their sales, just in case. They had their Bradley breeches on sale for $27, so I snagged a pair in tan. I have a pair already in the charcoal and I think they're pretty decent, if a little long for my short legs.
All the ponies got yesterday off, and today I turned them all out in our gravel paddocks for a bit. I lunged McKenna in the side reins again, and she was good. I shortened the side reins and other than a few head tosses of annoyance she seemed ok with it. She still has a way to go, but looks so cute when she's round!
