I know I am seriously off my trolley...I am addicted to purchasing rugs for my pony. She has loads, indoor.. outdoor, travel ... fleece etc.With hoods, without. Bought one yesterday as the lightweight is 4' 6'' and really a 4'9'' would be better. Please tell me I am not alone..LOL

Yes, me too. Don't know why, but it's a recent thing. I'm old enough to remember having just a jute rug & a canvas New Zealand & I never felt the urge to buy more. Even when the washable rugs came in I didn't rush out to get one.

Now I'm afraid I still have unworn rugs in their cases because they were a good buy, or I didn't have that particular one in a combo neck! No hope really!

I think may need therapy....my girl has a lovely Aerborn stable rug but have spotted another that is such a lovely colour!! its in the sale and out of stock so have left my email so they can let me know when they have some stock in.

Well it is an absolute bargain!! I dont need it. Would I treat myself no.......but with the kids and animals I am like a woman to whom money is no problem, Which I can assure you is not the case!

I don't have any but sadly I also don't have any money to buy some. Its like going on about how nice your wine is and what a big collection you have in front of a recovering alcoholic!!

Yup - and had to point out to my non horsey boss who was muttering about his wife buying 'yet another rug' for her ned that non horsey women may have fetishes about handbags but we have fetishes about rugs and its just something he'll have to come to terms with...

Desperate to replace my lightweight and rainsheet with Mark Todds as they fit my Sec D perfectly and the one's I've got are a bit naff but need to bide my time to prevent OH heart failure - his last comment was 'he's got more clothes than I have'... :)

Love that Laura....very witty.

Yes I too stand up and say...hello my name is Sarah and I am a recovering rug addict. Have been clean now for a while but am about to relapse as am expecting a parcel any day now from Derby House Saddlery.

I spent last winter gathering a lovely selection of indoor pyjamas for mine, then moved to own yard 6 months ago only to have them living out 24/7 now!!!!

Whoops!!

I'm afraid I'm in the same boat as you. First pony (35 years ago) had no rugs. Got posh with third pony who had a canvas NZ and a jute rug complete with a Co-Op blanket (counldn't afford the Witney I lusted after!). Now I have a room full of rugs.
