Mathilda now has a second pair of booties (above). Sporty, aren’t they? We are prepared if she loses one or gets her feet wet. Preliminary data suggests that these are doing even better than the first pair. When Rodney is up and the barrier is down, Mathilda is now out grazing rather than standing like Patience on a Monument next to R’s stall.
The first pair [More] made a huge improvement on her movement, i.e. she did. However, this pair is styled a little narrower, so they do not twist on her hooves. Shifting shoes have to make one feel a bit unstable. Perhaps only by a small margin, but that’s all she’s working with.
The booties came in a spiffy box within a box and with a free hoofpick. Fancy packaging and a freebie, sure signs that you have paid too much for a product. OTOH, a business can get in trouble for omitting such perks. A while back, I wanted to celebrate surviving a particularly bad year. I treated myself to a silver charm necklace that had to be custom adjusted. When I went to pick it up, the counter help thought I was picking up a $10 repair not the original purchase. No box, a pleasant but perfunctory thank you. Not going back there any time soon.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
My father, and therefore I, always used ‘vast’ instead of ‘large’. I defer to Google, despite the superiority of our version.
Of what fashion accessories does your horse (dog, cat, spouse?) boast?
I left the Cavallo box on the floor to set up an adorable photo of a kitten sleeping in the box. Instead one of them used it to file a protest on the quality of the maid service. Not so adorable.
