Today Maizie and I both rode Sovereign, but first we picked lilacs from Jetty's lilac bush and decorated the tack room with them. We put the lilacs in the Brer Rabbit Molasses jar that had contained the molasses we used in the Thoroughbred Molasses Yummies. It has the cutest label! Maizie sat on the fence and made silly faces in the background while I photographed the jar (below).
Below is another view of the tack room with Eby's treat dispenser (empty, of course, because Eby is a treat hound!).
Here is a photo of the wall with our bridles and the tack box my grandfather made, and above the tack box, the mirror. The mirror in our tack room was purchased in 1952! It was a promotional item for an advertising company, The Vernon Company. It had a photo of Thoroughbreds on it but they deteriorated in all those years. I took the mirror apart and replaced the photo with horse wrapping paper. The wrapping paper is retro too - it is from 1976 - I think it turned out cute.
