Truthful Tuesday

Oh man. I fell off the no shopping wagon. No. No I didn't fall off of it. I JUMPED off. With reckless abandon. Hey, I had a good two weeks of no shopping.

Since I actually got to enjoy my equine this weekend, I realized that I was lacking a few things for the newest boys. Namely, front boots for wearing to ride at home. Rio and Jamp have been using their same two pairs for well, longer than I've had Jamp, so I figured if I was going to get for some I would get for all. Which lead to a real dilemma. Jamp wears brown boots, and Rio wears black. So what colors would the new horses wear? (#firstworldproblems) I like to keep them different so it's easy to grab the correct ones quickly, but most boots come in black, brown, or white. If I'm lucky. And I don't really like white boots.

And then I remembered seeing some ridiculous patent, faux leather, washable front boots on Instagram awhile back. After a quick internet search I discovered they are mostly only available in Europe. So obviously I headed over to Ebay. $212.00 later, these are shipping to me from the UK.

GTO (who we have started calling Pusgly since he looks like a pug) will wear the gold ones (duh, since he's golden), Romey gets the silver, brown for Jampy, and black for Rio.
Now I'm jealous that they all have new boots and I want these:
I think I may order the black ones. Because I have no self control. And then probably the brown ones... because same reason.

How about all of you? Make any regrettable purchases lately? Have anything you need to confess? Let me know in the comments!

  1. $150 custom gloves. No lie. I was doing really well until that. Also I fell victim to Bucketfeet.

    1. WHOA! I didn't even know such a thing existed. Those black boots aren't much more than that...

    2. I-Quip gloves, from England. Pretty effing amazing. I've never felt anything so soft that was so resilient. People have pairs that are 6+ years old and still look great, so I figure it's worth it. Right? Right.
