    Default Cheap "cones" bargain find

    I am so happy about a great bargain I ran across - but I don't have anyone to tell about it. I was at IKEA today and there were some heavy duty plastic vases in a bargain bin. They were a cute design, but not really my color for home decor- but they were marked down to ... get this... 19 cents!... So I stood there trying to think what I could do with these red cone shaped vases- DUH! CONES! I bought 20. They are a lot smaller than traffic cones and a little larger than soccer cones... not official size, but fun for practice anyway.

    You have us beat! Our cones course is made up of Home Depot buckets with the handles cut off.

    We also have white plastic pipes for our L and T shaped "obstacles"

    You can see why we callue our cones course our "Bubba" cones course.

    But cheap does not mean that you can't do just as much training of horse and driver ... and it makes for very good stories too!

    CONGRATULATIONS on you bargin and imagination!

    You can get traffic cones down here at Harbor Freight for a song...especially if you sign up for their discounts
