This is the second year I have participated in the Printable Pony’s Blogger Gift Exchange and both years I have been a bit generic with my ideas. When you need basically everything because you are too cheap to buy any non necessities yourself, it is hard to break down the list. I basically said “I need it all…go for it” or something along those lines.
I was getting a bit nervous when it was into January and I hadn’t received anything. With moving before Christmas, and giving Tracy my rental address, I was worried it may have been returned or left outside the old house and stolen. I was so relieved to stop by the rental after work one day and find it!
The return address was a name I didn’t recognize and there was no card inside to give it away, so I want to thank all of you that chimed in and helped me figure it out!!! My secret santa is a new to me blog, TBA (Thoroughbred Adventure), and now I am obsessively back reading her blog to learn all about her.
To the goods:
The box was full of great goodies for both Gem and me. The socks are lucky socks and I hope that they work in the future!!! I’ll be trying them out the next time I ride for sure.
Next up was a hardy looking hoof pick. I hadn’t heard of this brand, but hey if it claims to the the ultimate hoof pick who am I to disagree? 🙂 Truth is, I’ve been using the same cheapy plastic pick with brush for 8 years and it is dying a horrible death. This came at a great time.
For Gem, she added Mrs. Pastures treats. I’m a stingy, horrible mom who never gives treats. This is going to be a good surprise for Gem and I am sure she will devour them.
Last, she added in a couple human treats. I failed to get a picture because I ate them immediately upon seeing them before I had to share (and by share I mean give most of it to Wyatt) with the kiddo. It was really tasty with a mix of caramel, chocolate and pretzels. I have no regrets on that decision.
Thank you Amber for the gifts!!!!
One last reminder: the 2018 Volunteer Challenge is closing at midnight tonight, so if you want in on the goodies leave a comment on any post and I’ll add you to the list. The full list will get posted next week.
