For horses, for sailboats

Originally published on Windborne In Puget Sound

I stopped in at our local farm supply store and bought these two fittings for a total of $5. They are solid bronze, and I plan to use them on one of our flag halyards. I priced the same (OK, similar) fittings in the West Marine catalog...
Want to guess?
A lot of horse tackle is either stainless or bronze, and is priced without the "marine multiplier" - next time you are nearby, check out a farm supply store.

If it is springtime, there will even be real, honest to gosh peeps!
