    Gabby.Gator - just wanted to let you know that your gift boxes (2) shipped USPS last Wednesday night. I used the PO Box because UPS did not want me to use your real town name, just like you warned!

    In a way I did include the horses, their names are Hope and Joy

    OH MY WORD!!! OlympicDreams04 sent me the world's greatest dressage pad!!!!

    Black, with heavy-duty red & white stripes sewn overtop in a plaid pattern for a true One of a Kind pad. I got quite verklempt ... sniff sniff. It's such perfect timing too, because I just ordered a County Perfection Dressage Saddle that will, hopefully, be here in time for the Richard A.G. Watson Clinic in March. I will save that pad for that day!!!!

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Thank you dahling!!!! Merry Christmas!

    Sweet Mutt,

    Your box is on the way with the Priority sleigh. There was one last minute adventure, as I put down an embroidery needle on my desk during my last thread change, and it promptly rolled into a crack. Had to partially disassemble the desk to get it out. However, everything is done now, and it's on the way with lots of surprises. Hope you enjoy!

    Default PM already sent but....

    RolyPolyPony was my elf this year and wow did she deliver!

    I got a wonderful package full of the most fantastic and thoughtful gifts ever - including a beautiful monogrammed saddle pad and a cute beaded flybonnet for my boy and a lovely horseshoe nail necklace with my guy's name on it. I also got a package of pumpkin flavoured coffee which I am super excited to drink once my cold settles down a little and I can taste it!

    Thank you so much for the gifts - and the time and thought you put into them! Merry Christmas from me and my fuzzy critters! XO

    Default Thanks so much To The Max!

    Thanks Kristie for the awesome package! It arrived super quickly after you sent it. Hopefully yours will be there soon as well since it turns out we had each other.

    Anyways, I tore right into it! (and i'm happily munching on the delicious cookies you made as I type this) This week has been very stressful and exhausting with exams and holiday preparations, so it came at a perfect time. The Christmas card is great! What a gorgeous family. The tote bag is gorgeous! I will definitely be using it at horse shows to carry around all my stuff. YOu can never have too many saddle pads either- I love the navy! (and the matching leadrope) The cats are happily munching on their treats and love the toys too (I have some of the few cats that actually play with them ) Because its finals week I won't be heading to the barn until Thursday, but I will bring the awesome horse treats then! My guy is not picky and will devour anything. The riding socks are an awesome design- and I love socks! The remote shutter release for my camera is SUCH a good idea! I'm quite the photography fanatic and had been wanting one for a while. Oh and I am very excited about the jam. I will be using it with breakfast tomorrow!

    Thanks so much again for all the stuff! I love it all and can't wait to see how you like your gifts.

    I really hope you like everything! I may need to explain an item once you get the packages, but I don't think you'll mind, regardless.

    Sweet! Thanks so much for letting me know!

    And should the package arrive after Xmas, no worries! I'll enjoy opening it regardless.

    Thank you thank you TurtleBayou!!! I've never seen lead ropes in my purple/yellow color combo, and I can't WAIT to ride in that lovely purple saddle pad!!! Tonight, I'm eating the rest of the candy you sent me from Box #1, throwing on those fuzzy socks from Box #2, and relaxing! I hope your move goes smoothly, thank you for being a fabulous Secret Santa!

    You're welcome! I'm so glad you liked everything...and you were a seriously AWESOME elf too! I literally didn't think my box had a bottom...I kept finding things!

    Let's see...so many goodies, for us and the critters! A stocking full of Mrs. Pasture's treats for the ponies, Christmas cookies for the puppies (Willy alerted me to them right away, btw, otherwise I might have thought they were actual cookies, they look AMAZING!) and that box of chocolate is already broken into, they are delicious! Not to mention the canister of tea!
    The soap is already out in our guest room, it smells nice and Christmas-y! The Burt's Bee's pack was MUCH needed, I get such dry skin/lips in the winter, my hand lotion is about to run out and I am always misplacing my chapstick.. The lead rope was also very timely, the snap on Chip's broke a while ago and sometimes it just falls off of his halter when I'm leading him... lol.
    And as if all of the above gifts weren't enough, there's a beautiful necklace made from horseshoe nails and a gorgeous leather key chain with a brass name plate engraved with Chip's show name! I am just blown away, everything was so thoughtful and perfect!

    The puppies say thank you for their cookies! https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...23755664_n.jpg

    Woot! I got my parcel today! It is a very tempting box from perhaps Smartpak. Well it was taped up with Smartpak tape but then I know they don't ship out of the States so perhaps not.

    But my Oz mom (aka my boss) is keeping it for me so that I'm not tempted by it. Going to go cut down my Christmas tree tomorrow. So will probably bring it down in a couple days.

    We warmbloods think it is great that everyone is getting her package of Christmas joy. Remember to share with horses, especially if you have warmbloods. Those cookies won't make us fat-ter. (We have to eat whonu cookies not Christmas cookies. And no more stud muffins, darn it.)

    Ok, I know I was an extreme stelf this year, but have yet to hear from my giftee that she recieved her package. Just checked the tracking on it, said it arrived Monday and the notes say a woman took the package at the residence. Since the new format, I can't check to see if she's signed in this week (she could just be totally swamped with work and only goes here on the weekends...).

    I hope she likes all her gifts and is just secretly admiring them!

    Thank you to my elf, my gifts were awesome and MUCH appreciated. I tried to wait til Christmas, but after losing a beloved horse last week and many other issues, I really needed something to get in the Christmas spirit so I thought I would open it early and boy was it great! tons of treats and goodies for human & horse!! I had to beat my husband off the food & wine!

    Truly from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU elf...you brightened this gal's holiday
