So what did I do with my morning?
I’ve got horse stuff. Lots and lots of horse stuff. Years and years of accumulation cluttering up my basement and garage that’s in fine shape but will never be used by me again. So today I wiped down a bunch of tack, dusted off a bunch of other horsey stuff, and drove it all over to Windrush Farm to donate. To wit: three English saddle pads one foam pad five English bridles with snaffle bits two Western bridles with snaffle bits two leather English girths one pair of stirrup leathers one plastic tote of summer weight breeches (around eight) one plastic tote of winter weight breeches (around six) one pair winter insulated overall pants one barn jacket one rain jacket one fleece vest one heavy winter horse blanket two rain sheets one fleece stable blanket one fleece cooler sheet two bucket heaters one hay bale bag No partridge in a pear tree – wouldn’t fit in the car. The woman who helped me unload all this from my car was thrilled. She said a lot of the breeches could be used for their clients who didn’t have/couldn’t afford pants for riding, and most everything else would be useful in their program too. What isn’t can go to an auction to raise money. And I’ve still got enough stuff that another trip isn’t such a bad idea. It was a lovely drive through lovely New England fall color back country, after all.... Windrush Farm: http://www.windrushfarm.org/
