horse plowing - NYC - then the draft horse auction - which is lots of hanging out with teamsters talking about horses and looking at equipment and the occasional bidding on things...
I did pick up a few things but avoided any big purchases this time... although this manure spreader was VERY tempting!!!
As extra gravy to my trip to the auction while I was gone a little gift arrived on my porch from Country Outfitter - Yup new boots... : ) you will see from this photo of my old boots it was high time! I've had these old boots since 1997 and I'd say 15 years on a pair of boots is just about good!
Sooo in usual Clare style I couldn't wait to try them out so I took a brand spanking pair of boots are wore them for two days straight at the auction (yup pretty much on my feet the entire time) and yup those boots treated me right... that's when you know you got a good pair... I love them! They are Ariat Shada boots if you wanna check 'em out! and they are super well made not to mention pretty dang stylish! Thank you Country Outfitter... check them out for a pair of cowgirl boots of your own (or lots of other gear too)!
