Madison Horse Fair Trip

Sunday my friend Kim and I headed up to Madison to go to the horse fair. The weather this weekend has been very cold, we had snow on Saturday but Sunday was a bit warmer. We went up last year together and decided to make this a girl outing every year. Both of us have been saving money for this trip all year. Last year I was surprised to even find a guy selling strands of beads :) I love it when my interests overlap lol. I have been on the look out for a pair of Cheeks, they are kind of like chaps but shorter and with fringe. I was happy to find a great tent outside where they hand made chaps and cheeks. There where a really cool pair of hand made half chaps that I got to wear around for a couple of hours to try out but in the end I got the cheeks. They fit like a glove and keep you really warm. I have no excuse not to ride now lol. I found a cute pair of white boot for Willow at a great price too. Some of my other purchases where, brushes, lead ropes, a great green rope halter and the cutest bag for the brushes. Kim and I both felt the day of walking when we sat down in the car to drive home, and this morning I am a moving kinda slow. It was worth it and I can't wait to go again next year.

maybe someone can tell me why the photos posted directly from my phone to blogger have a "refection" and the ones downloaded and then posted to blogger do not :(

Can't help you on the reflection, sometimes blogger seems to have a mind of its own! ;) Looks like you had a great time, what fun! :)
