    So glad you liked everything! Visiting the training center in Spain was awesome, so I figured any horse person would appreciate a little something from a place like that. It was beautiful.

    Also, I did PM my SS, but I'll give a shout-out here too - I got Hunter Boot clogs that are wonderful! I never even knew about them, and now I don't want to take them off. So comfy! Plus a very cute dog wall hanging that's already up by my front door. Thanks Clear Sailing!

    Eleanor, sorry I am running so late! Thank you for all of the wonderful gifts! The bag is really lovely, the socks are great, I was so excited to see the knife as I have been in need of one for a while, the cookies were excellent (and lasted about 5 minutes), the ornament is really cute, the browband is going to look snazzy on my bay girl (and blue is my favorite color) and the zipper pull went on my favorite sweatshirt immediately! I was just amazed how much stuff you fit in that package Thank you, thank you

    But I was so overwhelmed when I opened my packages (yep, I got the other one)! You did a wonderful job; I loved everything! The hat and cooler from Adelaide were especially cool - I've been wearing the hat to work every day

    My lovely blue Roma pad is great, and I've been contemplating getting my boy's registered name on it *wink wink*

    And thank you SO much for the scarves. I've been wearing them all over the place. Pretty sure my family is wondering about my sudden obsession....

    Little Sammie thanks you for her brand-new toy. She refuses to let me have it to play tug-of-war haha!

    The soaps (from our very own LovelyBay) were just great. I opened them as soon as they arrived and it just made my day!

    You're so wonderful and you made the holidays bearable! I was completely beside myself. Thank you, thank you!!!!
    YAY! Glad everything made it there safe and sound and that you love it! (I had this typed out just after you posted but computer ate it! )

    I loved that colour blue of the saddle pad/lead rope. Actually got the same lead rope for myself just debating donating it to work or not. lol I think the pad would look great with his name on it which i love and you should totally do :P hehe

    In my mind you can't go wrong with a scarf, love them!

    Glad that Sammie loves the toy, I was sad that I couldn't send her any kangaroo meat treats which most dogs seem to love and I couldn't not include her. And I couldn't find any peppermints to send your handsome boy either!

    And the soaps , which I haven't actually had a chance to buy for myself yet. The lavender is because there is a ton around the farm. The eucalytus (cant spell that word! aka gumtrees) because well it's Aussi! Can't remember the other one I chose for you.

    Very very very happy you love everything and could brighten your holidays. Loved shopping for you! *hugs*

    So glad to see your post. I have been worrying that you didn't like anything or part of it. I made the bag myself, (the reason the parcel was sent late) I had made one for me about two months before. I added the key rings to your because I hate looking for my keys and gave you the extra pockets inside for all the other little things that we seem to carry now. It is a great size for taking when you travel for books and treats. I use mine to carry stuff for the barn. I go to the barn from work so have my change of clothes and snack food in it.
    I loved the colors of the browband and thought it might be fun. I just loved the ornament and had a hard time wrapping it and putting it in the box. I so would have keep it, but I had got it for you. I will just have to keep my eyes open for another one. I would have sent more treats but I don't like to when crossing the boarder, less chance of it getting stopped.

    Hope you had a great Christmas and have a outstanding New Year!
    Are you going to cowboy up or lie there and BLEED?

    We warmbloods want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We know a lot of people have had a bad time in 2012, so we hope all of you have a better year next year.

    We had a pretty good year. We were healthy all year, so that was a great thing.

    So Happy New Year to all our fellow elves out there.

    First of all, the timing was perfect - my box arrived on Christmas Eve, so I did not have to show much will power in waiting until Christmas morning to open my presents! And they were the first ones I opened! I'm so glad it got there in time! I was debating whether to send them overnight or not, but then the mail woman told me that would be $80 So I'm glad they got there anyways!

    Can't wait to read Casino Royale again, and I have heard The Company is great, and it was on my list to buy. I'm curious to hear how The Company is. It looked intriguing! I actually got BF a deluxe edition of the movie Casino Royale too

    The puppies (young and old) loved their Kong balls and treats, and the peppermints are already in my barn bag, ready to bring out to be shared with humans and equine alike. Glad they enjoyed everything!

    Your baked goods are so yummy - I will be sad when they are all gone (which won't be long).

    I love my "box 'o relaxation" and can't wait to try Foaling Around's soaps. I recently "Liked" her on Facebook after reading about her here, but had not ordered any yet. I've been using her soaps this last week and I have to say I'm in love! The bath salts are wonderful too!

    And last but not least, the saddle pad is absolutely beautiful! I am going to be afraid to use it, because I don't want to mess it up! I will be so jealous if you are talented enough to have done the hand-painting customization yourself! I could never do that! The saddle pad is actually another COTHer's work! Her account is Polar Square Designs and she's on facebook too. I was so pleased with how yours came out that I'm considering ordering one after the first of the year!

    Thank you again, so much, for your thoughtful gifts! I hope you had a really wonderful Christmas, and that 2013 is full of joy and laughter.
    It was so fun shopping for you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thanks so much!
    I'm so glad you liked everything. I figured in your neck of the woods, warm gloves and socks would be good to have and a mug for cocoa when you came in from the barn. The calendar for the saga of the 2 "wild" horses that were around your area. I love the lederbalsam so glad you like it too.

    Thanks again for the pad and halter. Xena just has to grow a lot before she'll fit into it. She'll look so cute with her personalized halter.

    I haven't received mine yet, but my Elf was in contact so I think it's just the slow postal system... (plus, had to cross the border).

    OMG yes, blugal. We sent our package to Eleanor in Canada, and the meese took forever, something like 2 or 3 weeks, to let it go through customs.

    So glad you enjoyed. I agree, I can polish off a bag of that popcorn by myself in one sitting!

    It was fun picking out your gift. Happy holidays

    Just putting the finishing touches on barbecue babyback ribs, sauce and spices from Oklahoma, courtesy of MeghanDACVA. Great way to go out before the big New Years weight loss plan!

    My horse is also enjoying his new personalized lead, and me, my lovely pair of gloves. Liken' 2013 so far!!

    I do not approve of the speed of the delivery meese. I'm starting to fret.

    Apparently the messe are slower than warmbloods are.

    We couldn't use UPS or FedEx because the meese charge a fee to the recipient in Canada.

    You just have to worry and worry until the meese let the package get delivered.

    Oh and our post office would not let us track or insure to send something to Vancover Island. What a trial! We had to worry and worry.
    '
    But it got there after 2 or 3 weeks in meese customs. So hang in there.

    It arrived!!

    It's like when you try to open a jar with a sticky lid. You work at it, and put it under hot water, and use a wet cloth... finally you give up and ask someone else - they do it right away!

    Well, in my case, I started checking my mailbox sometime in November. I kept checking... and got messages from my Elf... so held off for a while... then I checked it every day until Christmas (ok, so I even checked it twice on Dec. 21st...). Then I was away for a few days and figured, "this must be it!"

    But, no. Got back to work, checking the mail at lunch... and NOW I AM AWAY FOR 10 DAYS... guess what? It arrived today! My secretary was quite curious about my package from the USA So SHE gets to stare at it until I get back!
