Workin' in a coal mine goin' down, down, down

Not long ago I was given the responsibility of placing the order for the candies we carry in our store. Each check out area has a set of shelves with chocolate bars, etc. and I'm trying to organize all the displays so that they each have the same products. Sounds easy, but when I am off for a few nights things tend to get mixed up and messy because other people don't take as much time putting candies in their proper place. It's kind of like building sand castles too close to the water's edge... minus the sand and water, if you catch my drift.

So because I've been such a good, hard worker (in my humble opinion), staying late and organizing candy displays I have decided to treat myself to a present. The non equestrian readers won't be too excited by this.. and, well, maybe some of you equestrian types won't be either.
So what.
My blog.
My stirrups.
I recently ordered these MDC Ultimate stirrups. They have a swiveling top portion that the leathers feed through. This swivel top enables the stirrups to hang at 45 or 90 degree angles instead of flat against the horses' side. These stirrups also have a safety hinging mechanism at the bottom so that the foot will be released if a rider were to fall off the horse. I chose the black ones to match my black saddle and leathers. Feast your eyes:

My other recent purchase for the saddle is the addition of a few shims for my Theraflex saddle pad. Aristoitle is lacking muscle tone on his back, and I want to be sure that the saddle isn't bridging his back anyplace.

That's it for this installment of Fun in Flatland. Next time you are in the check out aisle of your local market, remember there is a person who tries to keep all the candy organized and well presented- so if you are changing your mind about buying that Toblerone chocolate bar put it back in the right spot for crissakes... you never know.. I could be watching you.
