There were a lot of nice vendors there. Nicole did her best, but I managed to slide two easyboot gloves into my bag of purchases. I did NOT find the elusive blue sponge, but I did find a royal blue sponge holder, so I got that.
There was a saddle there that weighed 7.7 pounds....leather soft as butter, the underside was wool and the tree was made of some kind of kevlar polymer. Super light. Of course all the beautiful bridles, heart monitors, all kinds of needful things that I really don't need, just "want".
Nicole's little baby is so GOOD. That little girl just rode around in her stroller taking things in. Nicole is also a good navigator, which I am not, so I was so grateful to hitch a ride into Louisville. It was a good day.
Now there is work to do here, and then some! Oh...Christine, I will check my mail again for your photo and see what I can do with it. If it is not there, check the spelling on my name in my email addy.
