Friday Funny

Ol' Bay just looks THRILLED doesn't he? Pink overload and some husky dude with chicken elbows bouncing along on him.

Tell ya the truth, the pink dosen't look so bad on this horse, it kind of works for him. I just love his facial expression.

The Blahs

Wow, this is just a very "blah" saddle isn't it? The grayish leather in no way complements the garish purple accents. It comes with a matching and equally "blah" bridle and breastcollar. The little purple "corner plate" really offends me for some reason.

Scary Pink Saddle of the Week

OMG HOLY CRAP THAT'S LOUD. Wow, the saddle itself is not so bad, really, it is just all of the sequins, rhinestones, tinsel fringe, and neon pink halter that makes the overall picture so frightful and eyeball searing.

Time Capsule Tacky

Ooh! Remember when this was one of the colors Wintec saddles came in? The tacky saddle phenomenon is not a recent development folks. Of course this was when Wintecs didn't cost nearly as much as a nice leather saddle. Sigh, the good old days.

Another Quality Saddle

Wow, there seems to be no shortage of these crappily constructed, fugly, cheapo saddles out there. I THINK this is a synthetic, but not entirely sure. Bleh. What a hunk of junk.

High Quality

Wow, doesn't this look sturdy? Looks like it's made of posterboard. I wouldn't trust this on ANYTHING including the saddle stand. Wow, saddle quality FAIL.

Torture Device Thursday

OMGWTF!!?? You have got to be kidding. Not available in the US? I should hope not. This is a Charro Scissors Training bit that a reader sent me the eBay auction for. Here is the ad text.

"This is a one of a kind charro tijera (scissors) training bit that you can not get in the US.
The bit is absolutly great for those of you who want to train their horse for driving jumping reining ecc....ecc..
No limits to this one.
For long time even here in Mexico forgotten but we found one family who still makes them. This is as well a piece of art
You invest now a little bit more money in this training bit but you will have 75 % less training costs thats for sure.
You will be suprised how your horse gets trained with this bit in no time.
Forget about your snaffle bits, colt bits , ring and shank snaffel bits.
This Mexican bit beats them all and you will never find anything better."

We can see that English is not our first language. I like how they say that you can forget about regular training bits. So, you just tack up your greenie for the first ride and shove this thing in their mouth and 75% of your training is done? Wow, really? And you get the broken jaw for free!

Can you imagine the amount of leverage this thing applies?

Scary Pink Saddle of the Week

Yikes, yet another scary hot pink saddle with accessories that are not the same shade of pink.

Sorry for the no posts the last couple of days. I have been in the middle of divorce proceedings. It's final, and I think that I am well rid of him. I have upgraded, the new one is sweet, fun, and adores me. Yep, definitely came out better off.

Boudreaux dies and he go to hell. The Devil, he go to visit his new tenant and he find Boudreaux sittin on his front porch in his rockin chair. He say, "Boudreaux, how you like the weather here?" Boudreaux, he say to the Devil, "Oh, it real nice, feel just like March back home." The Devil, he say to himself, "What I gonna do wit this guy?" So he go to the thermostat and turn up the heat. A couple days later he drop in on ol' Boudreaux again and find him sittin in the rockin chair again, wit a glass of tea. He say, "Boudreaux, what you think now? Hot enough for you?" Boudreaux, he take a drink of his tea, "Well, Devil, it not bad, feel just like June back home." The Devil, he perplexed, so he go turn up the heat some more. A few days later he go back to Boudreaux and ask, "Well, Boudreaux, you think its too hot now?" Boudreaux, he fan himself a bit and say, "No, it still not too bad, bout like August at home." The Devil, he beside himself now, he say to himself, "I fix him." He go to the thermostat and turn it all the way down, it starts snowing. Couple days later he go to Boudreaux and he freezin, shivering, all wrapped up in the blankets. The Devil he say, "Well Boudreaux, what you think now?" Boudreaux, he shiverin so hard his teeth chattering, "Oh, Devil, the Saints must have won the Super Bowl!"

And this morning in Little Rock, AR there is several inches of snow on the ground. WHO DAT!!!

Seeing Stripes

Holy cow, this thing is ugly. It's a synthetic, that is obvious, and on top of that it is a multi-colored striped synthetic. It looks like someone made it out of one of those hideous sweaters that their grandmother got them for Christmas. It bothers me that the stripes are vertical everywhere but on the fenders. Gag.

This is not necessarily tacky and is not harmful to the horse, it was just so hilarious looking I had to post it.

It is a shadow roll for a harness horse, they call it, predictably, a brush roll. Snork, snicker.

Scary Pink Saddle of the Week

I am confused here. Why would you cover the swells and horn with icky Pepto colored leather too? Are the seat and stirrups not sufficient? Also I just don't get the whole super pale colored leather and the funky scalloped jockeys. That makes no sense, they are just kind of random looking.
