    Talking Missing riding gloves

    I cleaned out my tack trunk the other day and found 6(!!!) right gloves, but no left gloves.

    I'm wondering what happened the left hands, LOL!

    Do you consistently lose the glove from one hand or the other? Does it matter which is your dominant hand? I am left-handed and this is the glove I seem to lose. hmmm

    Maybe I can find a COTHER who loses all the right gloves and we can arrange a trade. I'll send you three rights, if you send me three lefts.

    They went to live with 50% of my socks. (:

    There's obviously a rider in your barn who has two left hands, and has been swiping all your left gloves and leaving their useless right ones behind

    I'm very good at keeping track of my things, and my gloves always wear out before get around to losing one. I also have my very first hoofpick -- have had it for about 15 years -- now how many people can say that, considering they tend to grow legs!

    They're in a drawer in my tack room. There must be a wormhole connecting your tack trunk and a drawer in my tack room.

    I've always thought that odd socks turned into belly-button lint... maybe odd gloves do too?

    I found when packing up things for a tack swap that I have also had stirrups and leathers sucked into the sock black hole. How does that work??

    The loner bell boots, and 3-of-4 wraps, I can understand... but how'd I lose a stirrup??

    This is kind of funny! I had brought all my bridles home one day to clean and see what I had altogether. I found that I have 8 complete bridles all with their matching braided reins and for some reason had 3 extra sets of braided reins! I normally buy my rubber reins seperately and only use for schooling and jumpers but were did the extra braided reins come from? Time to have a tack sale of all the loose, extra, and odd ends!

    I always lose the gloves from my dominant hand. I tend to take them off to tighten the girth/adjust things, and don't put them back on.

    I usually just buy a ton of the knit gloves that go on either hand, and grab any two. Unfortunately, they are really too slippery for riding, and not quite warm enough for our winters.

    Welll, you know that "gaseous" ring around the planet Saturn? Yeah, well, it's not made up of cosmic gasses. Nope. It's lost gloves, socks (there's a direct link between clothes dryers and Saturn) and airline luggage.

    I expect you have the missing ones of my odd pairs: 1) green polarfleece with black palm; 2) cheapo black pimple grip; 3) navy polarfleece; 4) black lined leather. I can't bring myself to throw them out in case their mates surface in three or four years!

    I find all my missing gloves in coat pockets. All my missing socks are stuck inside of polarfleece shirts hanging in my closet.

    No, you guys missed the Nana and Nelly thread of two christmases ago obviously. They were selling single gloves, socks and shoes as well as large and small bags of garbage. I know where they are. Just send cash LOL
    Our horses are not seen as the old and disabled they may have become, but rather as the mighty steeds they once believed themselves to be.

    I was thinking: has Michael Jackson been in your tack trunk? (boy, am I showing my age!)

    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    For whatever reason, I always get a hole in my gloves at the tip of the pointer finger of my left hand.

    The right hand glove stays intact (and I'm right-handed, go figure).

    So I always throw out the left hand glove, thinking that when another pair gets a hole in the right one, I'll be able to make a new pair.

    No. Never happens that way.

    I think I have 3 or 4 right gloves at home with no lefty to go with them!
