    Default I Spend More Money on ...

    ... my horses shampoo than my own shampoo I can't help it, maybe I can rationalize it by washing my hair with the ponys shampoo.

    I rationalize it by my pony has more hair than I do, and it gets a lot nastier than mine does, but it gets washed less frequently so I need the 'good stuff', and since it's not as often that I use it, I go through about a bottle of it in about the same time it takes me to go through several bottles of my own and therefore costs the same.

    I've used the Cowboy Magic Rosewater shampoo and conditioner on my hair. It's good stuff.

    Why "shampoo" a horse? It's bad for their coat, removes their natural waterproofing and warmth, and puts toxic chemicals on their skin to be absorbed.

    A good currying is MUCH better for all concerned.

    Because sometimes no matter how good of a currying job you do, that dried piss/sh*t they rolled in yesterday or last night Just. Won't. Come. Out.


    And if you're worried about bathing your horse once a month or two and putting chemicals on their skin, then I suggest you never use soap, shampoo, conditioner, or any other household cleansers.

    Wow. You don't own a white or gray horse do you?

    Do you believe in using evil soaps or shampoo on yourself? Jeesh, get a grip. I don't think an occasional bath is going to harm your horse and I don't plan on using a shampoo containing "toxic chemicals".

    All you need is Orvus. A little goes a very long way, so that big jug can last a lifetime.

    If my horse can get new shoes at $200 every 6 weeks why can't I?

    Why do I balk at spending anything over $35 for jeans, but I'll spend $200+ for breeches?

    Why do I buy $250 Antares bridles because they're half off when I don't even ride my horse, but won't buy brand name cereal?
    What I lack in preparedness I make up for in enthusiasm

    OMG this is me! I refuse to pay more than $35 for a pair of sneakers that I wear until they have giant holes in them but my horse gets new heartbars that cost $35 a pair every four or five weeks

    I easily have $10,000 worth of show clothes in my closet but I buy my underwear at WalMart

    And for the record Malt O Meal Magic Stars are delicious!!!
