So I just found out my favorite local tack store is closing its doors. (We're just about out of tack stores around here...) The owner has decided it's time to retire. Can't argue that I guess. But still. Sad face.
On the bright side, you know what a retiring tack store owner means? SALES! We all know I love a good sale. And retail therapy always helps when you're sad. Even if you're sad because the retail location is leaving. So at the end of the day, the whole thing cancels out. Emotionally at least. So today's confession is that I had a bit of a shopping spree. This particular store doesn't carry much actual tack that I like, but they do have some great apparel.
I won't keep you in suspense any longer, here's what I snagged in the closing sale:
I got Rio some new no bow wraps. He has a bowed tendon (got to the bottom of THAT issue, more tomorrow) so he's wearing wraps all the time now. I like to be able to rotate them so I don't have to constantly do laundry. I stocked up on hairnets, and got a pair of show gloves to keep with my new helmet.
Have you done any tack shopping lately? What'd ya get?!
