I was doing the weekly shop today, when suddenly all my hoof-oil-applying problems ended, when I walked past the BBQ section. A basting brush!
For those of you who don't understand, and most of you will.....all things equestrian which require bending down are a nightmare for me, and mostly require the help of an able-bodied person.....something that this stubborn independent pig-headed woman doesn't like having to ask for!
Just looky here, girls and boys!! And all for the princely sum of .....50p. Had that been designed for equestrian use, or for use by a disabled person, you could have added two noughts to the end of that sum right away...couldn't you?? Or speaking for the UK anyway, you certainly could...;) Haha!!

Wow Monty that's super!! What a great idea and yes if it was for horsey people it would have had an extra zero on the end!!

Good for you.

Well, I didn't go looking for it. I just wandered from my train of thought for a while...having a relaxing shop with out teenage daughter, and could push trolley at Monty Speed, with my one popeye hand! (Have one really muscular hand from pushing full trolleys...use a crutch in the other).
Saw this rather long brush just staring at me from among the skewers and forks, and I just said -aha....hoof oil! To myself...thinking out loud, like you do. Only to discover a lady stood next to me giving me very strange looks! I tried to explain....but only managed to confirm her suspicions I think, that I was either inebriated or living on another planet!!
Ho-hum! Happy Days! Let you know this weekend how it works, Rubi have a dressage competition again. Oh la-la!! However, I will only go if she's finished her season..(she should have, by then) as she's very difficult at the mounting block when she's in season, and diesel is too pricey for me to drive there,to find she won't let me get on.It's at Fox's Riding School on the Wirral. Anyone else going, btw??

Brilliant, especially for 50p! I think it could help lots of us, especially at shows, I am such a messy creature I almost always get oil on me somewhere, at least I'd be a bit further away from the oily end!
