Last night was a little on the disappointing side. I was super excited to head out to the barn and ride, because my new teal tooled half chaps had arrived! I zipped up the left one only to have the zipper split (and they weren't too small or anything, it was clearly a design flaw). I wrestled it off, got it pulled apart, and did manage to get it on the second time. But the right one was a lost cause -- the leather at the top was cut incorrectly and blocking the zipper end, so you couldn't even zip it at all. I had two other people try just to make sure I wasn't a klutzy moron. So annoyed :( annoyed enough that I just went home without riding to drink wine and sit on the couch... and also send a curt email to the eBay store I bought them from, so hopefully we can come to a resolution....

Although even if we don't, I might have impulse purchased another pair. Oops? #tackhopro

It's supposed to be 60 today, and close to 70 tomorrow! I have some pretty exciting horse-related equine plans that will hopefully pan out, and then it's a state holiday Monday -- whoo hoo!
