New Junk & the Resurrection of the Donatello

New Junk & the Resurrection of the Donatello


And then the Bony Pony was having their spring sale, so I picked up another pair of cheap Ovation breeches ($35) and a pair of Kerrits ($55) I’ve wanted for close to forever.

At the check out I asked which rain sheets they had in stock. The lowest price she had in a 78″ was a $75 Saxon. I was going to pass, but then she told me it came in Grey/Rose (AKA PINK), so…

If you’ve been following me on Instagram you may have also noticed the return of my much beloved Tredstep Donatello field boots. I coughed up $55 and had a local shoe repair place put new zippers in them. Those half chaps have done me a great service, but I’m glad to have my tall boots back!

On top of all of that, I just ordered a new pair of irons. I’ve been having some discomfort in my feet while I ride and I’m hoping the wide foot bed of the Kavalkade Alu irons (an $80 knockoff of the Jin irons that people love) will help. Those are on backorder, though, so I won’t have them for another week.

Add all of that up and you’ve got a whopping $300 I’ve spent in the past couple of weeksthat’s nothing to sneeze at. But selling Ezhno and moving to a cheaper barn means that all the money I just spent (on products that will hopefully last a long time) stings a lot less. I still cringe when I make a purchase, but I don’t feel as bad as I used to when I look at the receipt later.

Let’s not talk about the $1,350 in repairs that my truck got this morning.
