Show Prep: Barn Friend Generosity

I'm rather disappointed to say that I can't quite fit into my show coats at the moment. Nor could I at the Sonoma show last year and was luckily able to borrow some for the weekend from a trainer friend of Ali.

I had planned on visiting Dover this weekend to get fitted for a coat that I could use for the upcoming Brookside show. This wasn't going to be a fun purchase since I already own a coat too many, would have much rather have fit into my current assortment, and used my Christmas Dover giftcards on new Ogilvy baby pads. When a barn mate offered to bring a few coats for me to try I said YES and ended up with two coats-  beautiful Navy and Gray versions that will look great on Ellie!

Problem solved! Although I still may make that trip to Dover.....

  2. Thank goodness for friends with extra stuff! (Since probably many of us have a "coat too many" haha)

  3. I want a green show coat like nobody's business. I'm using it to motivate me to try to lose weight!
