Old paddock boots make way for the new!
Thanks to Horseloverz.com and their already amazing deals topped by an Ariat Closeout and additional 4th of July savings, I was able to get a brand new pair of Ariat Heritage Breeze zip paddock boots for only $67! My poor old ones (of the original Heritage variety) had served me well but have been through hell and high water over the last 4 years and despite my continued attempts to re-condition them and WD40 the zippers, they were finally starting to die.

The Breeze boots will be a new thing for me, but Horseloverz didn't have my size on sale in the ones I usually buy so we'll give the washable ones a shot.
I was actually going to get the matching half chaps (also on clearance) since I succeeded in breaking the zipper pull on my well-loved Grand Prix ones last week (and have worn through the stitching and leather inside the calf). That was until I measured my leg and realized that Ariat models must all be very tall, spindly-legged people, i.e. not me. I should have known, having tried unsuccessfully to find Ariat tall boots in the past, so I opted instead to give some Ovation half chaps a try. They have much more customizable sizing options and seem to be very nice and flexible. Plus they have a super cute quilted leather top :)
