My friend who lives in another state mailed an advertisement to me that she clipped out of a local newspaper. I've never seen an ad quite like this one. There must be a large market of horse lovin' women in her town.
Speaking for myself, since returning to horse ownership:
1. I don't have the time to pamper myself. (Too busy feeding, fussing, and shoveling manure.)
2. I don't have as much cash for pampering myself as I did B.H. (Before Horses)
3. I get more joy out of pampering my horses than myself.
For years, I had lovely acrylic nails. They were the first thing to go when horses came to live with me. I don't miss the nails at all. In fact, they were kind of a nuisance. I look back now and wonder where I found the time to sit for an hour every 2 to 3 weeks to have my nails done. I'd rather be at the barn.
There are a couple of pampering activities I still enjoy, but not nearly as often as B.H. Occasionally I will treat myself to a pedicure or a facial, but that's about it.
Nowadays, the horses come first and personal pampering is a hot shower to wash the barn smell out of my hair.
Maybe it is time I made an appointment for a facial.
So who gets pampered the most in your household? You or your horse?
