Today was our Tack Sale/Swap at Tyrrell Park. We brought our unwanted/unneeded tack out to the stables to sale. We invited anyone and everyone to join in and bring what they had to sale or bring it to swap if they could.
I brought my 2 Aussie Saddles, Barry's two saddles, bridles, halters, saddle pads, hoof boots, cinches, bits, etc.
I had several people look at the Aussie's which kinda surprised me as this is not Aussie territory! Kenny looked at them but we couldn't come together on a price. I dropped it to $600 but $500 for Kenny - with both saddles. That was my 18" Aussie with breast strap, leg woolies, suede stirrup pads and saddle pad and the 19" saddle. An older gentleman was interested and he got on them both several times. He had Paso Fino's so those saddles will be perfect for him. He paid me the $600 and I was thrilled. I sold the big gel saddle pad along with the Skito pad to Spirit Stables and I threw in the flat neoprene non skid pad.
I sold reins and a few girths and traded reins to Meg for a fat snaffle like LeAnn said I should use for the arena training with Biscuit! Margaret wants the back cinch thingies for $40 and Esther is going to try out the martingale for someone and they will pay $20. So I did pretty good.
We all had a great time - LeAnn's hubby Doug was there and the other Lee Anne's hubby Spud was too. Esther's husband Michael came out with his super cool new BMW motorcycle that was KILLER.
Meg's truck sprang a fuel line pump thingy leak and Barry and Randy helped her with it. Her truck was POURING out diesel. LOL it is always an adventure.
