Spending Money Like Ouch

The past week was expensive, but isn’t that the joy of horse ownership?

Last Saturday a few friends and I attended the Greene County Horseshoe Supply’s big tent sale.  We enjoyed some wonderful specials and I came home with a new winter coat and some half chaps.  In addition we went into the boot barn and tried some on.  To my surprise I found a pair of boots that I liked and they fit.

And just like that I have my very first ever pair of cowboy boots!

In addition to the less necessary things I stocked up on food for the three amigos.  I got a new load of hay delivered (I can only store 60-70 bales so I get a new load every month) and right after that I picked up my load of alfalfa, beet pulp, and hay stretcher.  Was it necessary to purchase so many bags? No.  But Tractor supply gives an extra 5% discount for 20+ bags.  Hence, I am experimenting with exactly that.  Three horses go through a lot of food!
