    This may not count because everyone is pitching in.... but my Christmas gift is to go to Rolex next year. My mom will be going with me and since they (step-dad and half brother & sister) moved 1,000 miles away a few years back, it will be really special for just the two of us.

    I'm super excited! My husband is fantastic because our anniversary is during the Rolex and he won't be with me.

    I got my first tractor! It's a new one since DH is not overly mechanical, so I was scared to go used! I have had my farm for 12 years so it was loooong overdue.

    I am really leaning towards stalls mats for 5 stalls too for a "new year's gift". We already are doing 1 stall, so I'm thinking just bite the bullet and do the other 4 now too since we are redoing the floors in the next few weeks!

    Since my horse shopping searches haven't been fruitful in time for the holiday, I took advantage of being at home for Christmas and treated myself at Horseman's Outlet. They have an awesome consignment section and I got a Mattes half pad, a set of Eskadrons (front and hind) for myself, and stirrup leathers for my trainer...all for the cost of less than the front boots alone as if they were new!
    The deal was outrageous and I just couldn't say no.

    Now I just have to find the horse...

    Well.. there is the custom framing that I had done for my Birthday that I said would be my B-day and Christmas presents for the next several years... LOVE Tim Cox and my friend did an AWESOME job with the framing!!!

    And then I've had such success with reiki on my cushings/founder mare that I decided to treat myself to a session. It was the most incredible feeling and I felt wonderful the day after! I'm glad that I tried it and plan to do more sessions.

    I have decided my main present to myself this year will be a new pair of custom half chaps. I definitely do not have off the rack size legs, so custom is a must. My current pair of half chaps is in ok condition and I will continue to use them for trail riding. The new ones will be used for clinics and ring work use. (At least until current ones die...hehe) I also purchased some awesome fleece socks(while shopping for gifts). They are so comfy and have kept my toes toasty while riding. The other thing I plan to buy is a GPS to be used in truck and car. I have been encountering so much construction on the highway I have to drive to work on that it is getting on my nerves.

    I hope it works out for the best for both you and that adorable young dog. He certainly is a cutie.

    Now that I'm jumping my young horse more, I treated myself to a GR8. It is the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned.

    I might get my hair colored and cut. Usually I do the color myself. Also I am looking at getting the Honey Badger(my mare) a new blanket.

    I treated myself to a past life regression with a hypnotherapist. Fascinating!
    Form follows function, or does function follow form?

    Some kitchen remodeling so that I can put a stackable washer/dryer on the main floor, and a recumbent exercise bike (the only piece of exercise equipment I can use). Both are gifts for my arthritic and often replaced joints!

    Mine is not so much a Christmas gift, but an "after I am healed from ACL reconstruction" gift. I'm going to get my pony a good quality saddle that fits both of us well. Just not sure if it will be the eventing saddle or the Western saddle, because we want both!

    I treated myself to a custom Mattes pad with a very small part of my unexpectedly generous Xmas bonus! The rest went into my emergency fund.

    Mr. Trevelyan spent Xmas day installing the new stainless steel workbench (for my tack room) and heavy duty hose reel that he gave me! Life is good when your non horsey DH is non only willing to give you 'barn gifts' for the holidays, but spend the day installing them too!

    Its been a slow day at the office today, so I've spent the day contemplating whether or not to take advantage of the year end deals on a new car.

    I'm getting myself (and Mojo, of course) a Rambo no fill turnout sheet. His Rambo medium weight is lasting forever, and I'm sold on the brand. Eventually I may go for the optional liners as well. (Wonder if the liners can serve as stable blankets... Bring horse in in nasty weather, and just take off top layer, hmmm)

    A brand new saddle that actually fits me and my propane-tank-shaped Clyde-X.... only took 3 years! Counting down the days till my County Perfection arrives from across the pond.

    Lucky for me, my birthday is in February, so I can use that as an excuse to get a new black bridle & girth to match

    My gift is rescuing two gorgeous weanling filly Welsh ponies. I need another horse like I need a hole in the head. I knew they were going to a dealer and didn't want to risk them getting into a bad situation. Days before they arrived hubby was nice enough to partially enclose our run in that is 20 x 10 feet. The other half has a gate w/plywood.
