Friend and I drove to a tack shop to check it out (plus had coupons). We of course check out the sale room... Rambo's on sale.. for half off! I of course am not planning to have a horse this winter... and I don't even know what size horse I'm going to have when I get another. Did I buy one anyway?! YES! I was like surely a nice generic 75 (although I think rambos tend to run big so more like a 78) will fit any horse I decide to get in the future lol. I got a heavy weight Rambo WUG for more than half off... I couldn't help myself.
I had the same problem a few months ago. There was a pair of open front Devoucoux boots in the consignment bin.. $90, barely used. I bought them... didn't need them but HAD to have them!
I am sick! I need help...
Oh I have a horse, he's just for sale (we're not matched well) and I'm hoping to have him sold before the need for blankets rolls back around lol. And I wouldn't start looking again until spring-ish... or at the earliest middle of Jan.
Have no fear... one day the boots and the blanket will have a horse to call their own.
my BO has the same illness! It must be going around.
She has brand new blankets stacked up in the back area of the tack room... UP TO THE CEILING! Now, she does currently have 7 horses (most are for sale... anyone want some great traks?!) but the sizes range I think from a 79-87!
She's also got like 3 new pairs of dressier half chaps she found on sale somewhere... and an entire rack of new breakaway halters because it was cheaper to just buy all of the halters then it would be to buy the new top straps if that is what was broken.
I think there is also a secret stash of new saddle pads because they never seem overly worn.
Craziness! Though... I think its catching...

Either get a horse NOW that will fit that turnout or sell it. Rambo's only have a 3 yr warranty and if you don't use it until next winter, you've already lost a yr. Course, if your Rambo is anything like the ones I have that are 15 yrs old and still fine, you shouldn't need to worry about losing a yrs warranty.
Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies from following you!
