OK, send me all of your "Wildly colored or patterned anything". I *LOFF* that stuff. I know, kind of sad for someone my age. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/no.gif
What I could do without... sweatshirts and tee shirts with horses on them. Got plenty. Am too old to wear them out and about. Don't need more barn attire.
I don't even need to write it out because I won't be getting any of this, but- clothes, like sweaters with big horse heads on them, breeches in brands I don't like, model horses, horsey jewelry....except I like bit stuff.
Knick-knacks! I hate anything that serves no purpose and needs dusting. I run a knick-knack free zone (try to) and yet receive little 'things' to clutter up my space. Please spare me the little glass horse heads or some gnome riding a pony.

My favorite? Perplexing gifts from the wrong discipline...
I once opened a gift from a friend who was SO excited to have gotten me something horsey (she's not at all horsey). It was ***drumroll*** um, leather? Um, a leather and a neoprene band? Um, what is this... She beamed "I went to Stateline and went to the back, like you said, and picked this out because I know you don't have one."
She bought him a NECK SWEAT!!!! She thought it was some part of the bridle that I had been missing all these years. A NECK SWEAT!!!
P.S.- I also hate things with Arabians running on them (stop running dammit!) but I LOVE wild colored polos and pads-- just for schooling.

Fleur, it's a joke. Stoney has an unnatural affection for one of the other geldings so we joke that they have a little romance going on. So of COURSE he'd want to display his pride loudly with rainbow colored polos/ pads etc.
P.S.- I am going to see if I can erase the original comment because maybe it'll come off as offensive even though I was only kidding
