The Horse Habit

So, this happened...
Bye Bye You Wonderful Chunk of Leather 

I was in my office at work sulking over sending the saddle back (while it was the correct decision, it still made me sad) my coworker commented he wished his wife had a hobby.  This is the coworker that rolls his eyes every time some one asks about my weekend, because it is pretty much always ponies.  I cracked a joke that he could send his wife to the barn with me and I would get her a horse habit.  He must be desperate, because I think he was actually considering it.  I *might* have told him how much I have spent at the vet in the last year.  Pretty sure that killed the desire for her to pick up a horse hobby.  Oops :)

Then as I was wasting time on the internet I saw a thing about bad pickup lines and horse girl responses.  I am still chuckling over this one.

Guy:  I have more money than you can spend.
Horse Girl:  Oh really?



My response:  Challenge Accepted


Sadly, I have not had anyone try to use that pick up line on me, but I have decided what I get to buy since I sent the saddle back.  I have been extremely good this year and I haven't bought anything since my dressage saddle (so basically nothing in two months).  I am pretty sure that is a record for me.  And to make things better you guys get to help with the decision making process, because well I can't decide.

  1. I sometimes wonder what people do without hobbies. I mean, I get they have more time and money, BUT THERE'S NO PRIZE FOR THAT.

    Like. Ok. They can afford to go to a nice restaurant and get drinks with their friends.
    1) How do they get friends.
    2) The hell do they talk about?

    And really. What is the point of all that.

    1. I don't know because I've always sucked at making friends and it's even worse as an adult. And I really don't know maybe dogs? They are like house sized horses right? :)

    1. I know! The challenged accepted was the first thing that popped into my head when I read that.

      It's something I've been wanting for quite some time but couldn't justify when I was saddle shopping for dressage saddles having already signed on the dotted line for the jump saddle. Now that it is going back I'm thinking "wheee spend all money!" Sort of...
