One of the gentlemen was wearing a braided paracord bracelet. I've always wanted one. These are bracelets you can unravel and end up with a good six feet of rope - for an emergency halter, for example. Or lead rope. Or tie down.
In my opinion it's the perfect horseman accessory.
Turns out his twins make these at home - they are in scouts. I love scouts. They are always the most industrious kids ever.
So I've decided it's time for a CONTEST. And the nice thing is that some of you have already entered!
First some details on the bracelets:
My sons are very excited about starting their paracord bracelets business. We are calling it 2Chaps Paraband (their names are Mason and Logan Chapman by the way, they are 13-year old twins).
They can make any size (could be used as an ankle bracelet too) in just about any color. They are going to donate $1 of each sale to a charity based on the color sold. (see chart below) .
Isn't it great? So here's the contest:
If you left me a comment over the last three posts (during my agonizing over Cibolo) you are already entered! Wasn't that easy?
If you didn't and want to enter, just leave one before Thursday at noon. Then I'll figure out a way to draw a winner.
The winner gets a paracord bracelet in their size with the color of their choosing to support these great kids with their heart in the right place.
But what if you don't win?
If you want to order one on your own, here's the details:
Measure your wrist - btw, if it is 6 inches around, that equals about 6 ½ ft of paracord!
Each band will sell for $10, with a $1 going to charity (as mentioned above). Send an email to monicachapman (at) satx.rr (dot) com for ordering information.
Black = Urban Connection
Red = American Heart Association
Red, White, Blue = National MS Society
Yellow = Lance Armstrong Foundation
Pink = Susan G. Komen Foundation

You've all been here for me as I try to find my way on this journey with horses. You've given me the support to understand where I'm wandering off path and helped me have the courage to continue on.
Maybe one of these bracelets will help you out of a jam, too.
