    Default What horse related items do you have enough of but keep on buying more of?

    I think I have a problem I love buying winter blankets and sheets and quarter sheets in every size and every make and color! I went to get a few sheets out the other day for my horses and I have 5 and a 1/2 trucks full of blankets and sheet. You would think this is not such a bad thing ....... but I have only 2 horses.

    So, what do you have way to much of but you cannot seem to not pick up one more of on your tack shop, ebay or catelog escapades?

    And, is there any cure?

    Default Saddles

    My addiction is saddles. A very costly addiction too!

    I have 1 pony and 5 different saddles... Just got my newest one last week.
    But a few will be hitting Ebay or Tacktrader very soon.

    Default Just don't tell Mr. Canterqueen

    Saddles, hitched horsehair bridles, fancy western bits, bosals, western saddle blankets (with bling and I don't even show). Gads, it's hard to admit, but my tack box overfloweth!!
    If you cannot set a good example, at least serve as a terrible warning....

    Lead lines, saddle pads and polos. Leasing a new horse of a different color and gender was a great excuse to get new ones. Pink looks so dashing on a dark bay mare!!! Not so good on a flea bitten greay gelding.

    EVERYTHING!! LOL-mostly no-bow wraps for some reason. I have at least 30 of them. Also, blankets. Sometimes I find some that I didn't even know I had. I have a large bin stored away and I don't even know what is in it

    Saddle pads, on the HR side. Also, scissors. I have this idea that I won't be able to find a set of scissors around the barn when I need, so I have scissors all over the place.

    And although not for the horses, I really need to join Catnip Mouse Buyers Anonymous. I can't even count the number of catnip mice around, yet I always buy more. Was just checking out a halter the other day I won on Ebay (okay, sort of HR), and they offered to add a catnip mouse very cheaply. Sure, I said, add a mouse. Only after I clicked okay did I think, "We don't NEED anymore mice."

    I don't so much as buy it all as it usually comes with the horses originally. A new horse will usually end up getting a "new" halter and matching lead.

    I have so many accumulated halters it's ridiculous. How's 13 saddles for 3 horses? I only bought 4 of them. Brushes, brushes and more brushes. I do like to have a separate set of brushes for each horse so they add up, but then there are the times when I run across brushes that just FEEL good and I HAVE to buy it.

    On the other hand, I have a drastic shortage of english saddle pads! I only have 2 and one of those is kinda worn out. Oh if I weren't posting under my alter, I could pass that idea on to my SS!

    Saddle pads. Hubby, H/J trainer, and best friend who is a trainer have threatened to do an intervention. I haven't bought a saddle pad in at least 6 months! (Of course I'm not really riding right now with new job and being pregnant.)

    The other thing I seem to have a lot of is bits. Though they all serve a purpose, or did at one point anyway. I also have to stay away from clearance racks. I have issues with those orange clearance stickers.

    (Non HR... I've also been banned from buying dog toys. I don't feel too bad now though because the corgis destroy anything cute. Makes it easier to just buy rawhides now.)

    haha the scissor obsession is funny to me!!

    I also have a need for mice... just bought another pack last night. The cat keeps on putting them in the water dish... abundance maybe? Is she telling me something?

    Give me a heads up, would you? I'm looking for another!
