Category Archives: One Thing


Last week, I went shopping. It was OK. I found some really good smelling, volumizing conditioner that I considered buying. It was a fancy brand and came in a huge bottle, plus it was on sale at Marshall’s. I thought about buying it for a half-hour as I walked around the store. Ultimately, I decided $16.00 is just too much money for conditioner.

Yesterday, I bought a few things for the horses…including these cool little horse shoe halter racks, a bit for Tango, and one other thing. I’ve been really curious about the Germany based  brand, Effol. They are sub-brand of a larger company that has been producing products for over 100 years. I happened to see their, “Ocean-Star Spray Shampoo” on the Rod’s website. It took me all five seconds to realize I was going to buy it, even if it cost $16.95. Spray Shampoo for horses!? Sweet. And I finally get to try one of Effol’s products.

Then, I realized…this little “most interesting man” knockoff for horse people, is so true.  When it comes to buying things for myself….I always want cheap, cheap, cheap. As soon as horse things are involved, I will spend my money. My horses are so spoiled.

In other news…I have replaced the phone I dropped in the toilet. I have 3/4 of a page written out of the approximately 16 pages worth of papers dues this next week. Bleh.

Milo’s New Love

I bought Milo another “Himalayan Salt Rock” since he loved the last one. This time though I bought the black one which is supposed to benefit their digestive system. I’m not sure if it does but Milo likes and it gives him something to do. Milo doesn’t just like it; he loves it! He was trying to push me out of the way while I was tying it up in his stall. I had no idea a salt rock could be so exciting! It has a weird smell though…but I guess salt rocks aren’t really supposed to smell delicious, huh? I got it for $14.95 + free shipping from Amazon (of course, I have a problem, I know).  Now, I have a happy, happy horse!
