Boots and Saddles




The other day City Boy took Darling and I out to look at boots. We happened to stumble across more than that, however, down at the Bony Pony. I couldn't resist a walk around the store and peeking back in the corner where saddles are stacked from floor to ceiling. The smell of the leather just draws you on back...plus I had to walk around a bit in the boots to make sure they fit, right?

And as it would happen there was a lovely saddle begging me to haul it off it's rack and plunk it onto a stand where I could sit in it...because of course I had to see how the boots looked in the stirrups...right? Not because I had any intention of buying it.

Oh, you can stop rolling your eyes now, City Boy!

Darling also found a little saddle that she rather liked, and before you could say Bob's Your Uncle, both saddles were coming home for a test ride. Darling just got new boots as well, you see, so we both needed to know how they'd work (really, it has nothing to do with wanting new saddles!)

Unfortunately, the saddle that fit me my boots so well is a bit on the heavy side for Sandy, and I simply cannot justify spending the money on a saddle for Steve Holt! when I don't know if I'll be keeping him or not. So today I'll make the drive and place it back on it's rack and take joy in watching Darling in the saddle that she's planning on keeping.


Oh...you may want to hit mute before watching...Darling did something funky and ended up with the music playing twice and overlapping. Crazy!

You crack me up. I take it you're happy with your new boots?

Is it just me, or does Sandy have a big ol' wad of hay hanging out of his mouth through that whole video? That's funny.

I have to admit I LMAO when I watched the dancing boots after taking it. Told Darling I was getting creative like her!

And yes, Sandy does have a wad of hay. I laughed at that, too, when I saw it.

I thought it wasn't Darling who has trouble posting...I think Sandy can't trot and chew hay at the same time :p

Love the celebratory boot dance! You must have brought me good luck the other day asking about my low end sales...I sold one.
Thanks!

Congrats on the boots and congrats to Darling on the saddle! Sandy looks very handsome in it :) Now she just needs a pair of stretchy pants....
