This time I got blankets. Grady has a medium weight blanket and with this crazy weather we've been having that flip-flops from warm to snowing he needed a light weight blanket since I'm not there to take his blanket off when its too hot out. I had almost given up on finding one, but I ended up scoring an Orican Weatherbeeta blanket for $25. I've always wanted to try the Orican's since they have buckles in front and extra padding on the withers, so I think this'll be good for his sensitive withers.

|Um, why are you taking pictures of me?|
|New blankie fits perfect!|
|Ya, so I'm eating? Not exactly picture worthy...|
|Fine, if you're going to take pictures, this is my good side.|
I also got a brand new flysheet for Jetta. She ripped hers majorly last summer and I just didn't like the fit of it (Saxon brand), so I threw it away. I do have an extra that I was going to use on her, but I found a Schneider's fly sheet that I had been eyeing and it was brand new, still in the bag for $25. This lady had about 5 brand new flysheets that she was selling, I had such a hard time choosing one!
Then I also found a neck cover to go on Jetta's fly sheet (no more sunburnt necks and non-burnt bodies, lol). And then a $5 Cashel fly mask with the nose cover for Grady. Hopefully it'll keep his white nosy from getting burnt! Lastly, I got a new schooling pad. Our current black schooling pad is looking very worn out and even after being through the washer several times, it's just dirty, faded and fraying.
I was hoping to find a schooling bridle for Colton, since I don't have one that fits him, but I can piece an english bridle together. No such luck and I didn't find a new girth or white show pad either. There was another tack sale on Sunday in my home town that I wish I had been able to go to since it is run by the Dressage Society and they always tend to have more english than western tack unlike the sale I went to. Overall a fun day at the sale, I arrived back at 11am, so my rationale is that I only missed one hour of study time, since I would have slept until 10am if I hadn't have gone :)
