One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the annual blogger gift exchange. Tracy from Printable Pony is awesome and does the leg work of matching people up – thank you Tracy! I have met some of the most awesome people in this community and I love the chance to interact in a more tangible way. Usually I also find a new blog to follow along the way as well!
This year my package came from Emily at May As Well Event. I have followed her blog for a while now, so it was fun to recognize the person I received my gift from.
First, some tack soap from Higher Standards Leather Care. Lavender vanilla is my favorite scent of the one’s I’ve sampled over the years. I will be using it soon on two of my oversize bridles that went moldy at the barn while I was horseless. The bridles are too big for Ernie so they will get cleaned and go into storage. I evidently have FIVE oversize bridles and I hadn’t owned a full size bridle since my first horse back in the 90’s! I have purchased a full size bridle for Ernie but he did need an oversize brownband, so we are waiting on that and borrowing a bridle from a friend currently. I’ll share pictures once he is all outfitted.
Stud muffins are always a hit, although I still need to determine the split of these among the ponies. Does the oldest one get the most treats? The cutest one? The one who works for a living? I’m not sure how I decide!
Lastly, some smartwool socks. I’ve actually never tried smartwool socks before, so I’m looking forward to that.
Thank you Emily for the awesome gifts!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
