This morning I woke up by my uncle sending a picture of my niece riding on a horse for the first time. Aaaw. So cute when children sit on horses with the biggest smile ever.
When people ask my what I miss the most about Norway is, then that’s it. Not being able to see my little niece and nephew grow up is sometimes hard. My niece is the coolest little girl and I would love bringing her to the stable. But luckily I get to go home now and then to see them.
After waking up I started calling around to about 6 different tack-stores to try to find the Bucas Celtic medium rug. Me and Boyfriend had nothing to do today so I wanted to just go and buy it instead of buying it online. But it all turned into a total mission and we ended up taking a nice road trip to the north of the country to a really small town where they had it at a store called Zeeman dier en paard. This horse obsession is really bringing me all around the country. You need info about a tack shop? I got you. Haha
Afterwards we went back to Grumpy for a fitting session.
The reason why I’m buying the Bucas rugs is :
1. Because they have the stay dry inside which means you can lay them directly on your horse after working out eventough he is sweating. Grumpy sweats a lot in the winter and you can sit and wait for an hour for him to dry otherwise.
2. Because of this stay dry it means the sweat doesn’t go into the rug and make it cold which again affect his back as his muscles become stiffer when he is cold.
3. They last long and this one have a 3 year garantee which means I don’t have to buy another rug for a long time.
I now have a 150gram stable rug, then a 300 gram liner and a turnout rug. Which means I’m set. After having researched and thought about it for a week I seriously don’t want to see or read about rugs for a very very long time. Now I’m going to go and eat bread and drink water for the rest of the month. 💸
Have a nice eve!
