I'm not allowed to buy any more leads...

So, my ringside bag was smelling a little punky at the last show. I put it aside at the time, because it was stock full of blue ribbons, winners ribbons, spare change, and other stuff that I didn't want spilling out and getting lost at the show site. So I left the bag cleaning until I had a spare moment. Which was this evening....

And I gotta say that I am not allowed to buy any more leads.

The worst part is I know people whose tack boxes are FULL of leads.... but still.

Oh, and my bag had rancid cheese, liver, and crumbs-of-unknown-origin causing the punky smell.

I love it! Reminded me of days gone by when my kids had 4-h show bags for their goat stuff. New food groups grew in those things, LOL

@Prism Goldens that is dang pretty! I have a weakness for show leads too. They are so pretty and colorful! So far we just have a well made, simple, leather slip lead for the show ring. My hubby said "i don't think this will hold her" cause it's this dainty tiny 1/8 inch x 4 feet leather lead. Took Lana out on it and it did great! Though I have seen show leads snap at shows. It's a hardware problem most of the time.

The pic of my leads up above - the brown and tan lead is what I bought way back when I started showing Bertie. It has no bling, but it's very strong. I needed that with him because he was very strong (he still is - but at least he knows not to drag me around the ring).

And I did have a lead where the core inside the lead ripped so my lead started stretching and probably would have snapped at a show if I hadn't taken it to a show lead guy to see if he could fix it. <= I wish he could have, because I had bought it at the national I got to attend and it was really very pretty.

Love the teal one!

My show leads are a lot different. I canít take pictures since I left them at this weekends trial site. Winxís show collar is the first one. Her leash matches it. Pilotís is metallic copper and brown but I may celebrate with a new leash after his utility title.....maybe teal and black
