Another fun hop! Breeches & Boat Shoes asks:
What horsey things do you have that you can’t have JUST ONE of? From breeches, to bits, to bridles, I want to know what you hoard in the endless world of equestrian things.
When I thought about it, I realized all the things I can’t have just one of alliterated. With the letter “B”. Bridles, bits, belts, baby pads, breeches, bonnets, and boots (Boots for the horse; I’m good with one pair of tall boots for myself. For now.).
Bits. Bits are like jewelry. Shiny, pretty, endless variety, so totally beyond just an accessory. I love my HS KK Ultra loose ring, but over the years I have collected a variety of bits. Just in case. I’ve used them all at one time or another, and it is hard to let go, although I sold a couple a few months ago. Why did I do that???
Horse boots: the lure … I’m a trout, and those horse boots are a shiny, flickering, tempting, tasty, darting lure. And also, my horse needs them. It would be wrong not to protect his legs and coronet bands, not to protect his tendons. Just wrong.
