Typical Valentines Day gifts are cute (flowers, stuffed animals, cutesy mugs, all things heart shaped) but I already have lots of cute “stuff” – and would way rather receive a functional item. I know I’m not the only Equestrian who feels this way. My husband knows this, and set a tough precedent a few years ago with the best Valentines gift ever: a hot pink Dura-Fork and matching hot pink mud boots. Flowers would have been long dead, chocolates long gone, but every morning I walk in to the barn and smile when I see that pitchfork.
