One of the many things that I enjoy is restoring usefulness to neglected items.
After just a good wash with dawn and a wipe-down with a towel, this headstall is significantly softer and more pliable. Next up will be a secondary cleaning, this time with glycerine soap, followed by leather conditioner.
As I clean this harness, I will be making note of an damage and will have the questionable spots inspected by a qualified harness repair shop.
Follow the progress! #harnessrehab
I love tack sales and swaps. They're a bit like a treasure hunt. I never knows what cool, unusual, didn't-know-I-needed-it things I will find. They're also a practical way of recycling and saving money. Horses are expensive to keep, so I do try to buy used whenever it's both possible and practical to do so. I also love the camaraderie that develops as a result of a tack sale. Being able to "talk horse" with like-minded people often results in new knowledge and fun stories.
I'm off to a sale this weekend, with the goal of selling the items I have on hand, ultimately freeing up some space in my house.
The sale I'm attending has been organized by the Pinto Organization of Kentucky and will be held Saturday, April 5th, from 9am - 2pm at the Harrison County Fairgrounds, 2500 US Route 27, Cynthiana, KY.
If you're in the area, stop buy, say hello, and shop.
I enjoy the daily inspiration provided by nature, people and pets.
