It was a TERRIBLE mistake. The thing fit like a glass slipper on an ugly step-sister. Crinkly, wrinkly, bumpy, lumpy, flippy, flappy, lousy, mousy thing. We couldn't bring ourselves to keep it, and promptly asked for and received a refund.
Today, thanks to the generosity of HaHaHorses and KBC Intl., we have received the gift of a small, FenBar-sized gold-striped Rambo Newmarket fleece quarter sheet. It is STUPENDOUS! Thick, fuzzy, warm, beautiful, heavy, and tailored perfectly to my short but ample frame. Nothing could be more suited to a blustery November day, and I promise you photos before the week is out.
FarmWife has been taught a lesson—you can't beat quality, and you can't expect the $25 quarter sheet to do the job of a brand name product. If you don't want crap, don't buy crap. Wait, as her friends so kindly advised her during the harness-saving project, until you can afford what you REALLY want.
It is for this reason that I now assign FarmWife to the task of saving for next year's Rhino Wug and Rambo fleece cooler. My old Weatherbeeta will do the job until then, and I believe that the Horsewear Ireland (including Rambo and Rhino) products are worthy of me, and I of them. They are of mulish beauty, mulish quality, and mulish resiliance. I endorse them with all of my noble and capacious heart.
