Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places, but I'm having trouble finding what I need. I am in search of a double-jointed eggbutt bradoon, size 5" - 5 1/4".

I prefer lozenge or oval center links, but if that doesn't exist, French link should be fine. I'm not too particular about the metal of the mouthpiece, but the cheek needs to be silver-colored. And if it doesn't cost a small fortune, that'd be great!

Any resources for such a thing would be greatly appreciated!

Can you use this, or no because it's Aurigan? Is that close enough to silver "color" for you?

I guess I would have to see how it looked next to my Weymouth... I'm a fanatic about metal matching, and I would really prefer to not have to buy two bits. I *had* seen this one, but it's really a bit more than I would like to spend. Thanks for your help!

I use that, and my curb is silver, you can't tell the difference in pictures or on the ground untill you get up close.

You might try this; I bought one for my mare. Only the thingy in the middle is copper. Rest is silver. Price is right........!

Looks like I might have to increase my budget (significantly) if the KK looks ok. The Stuebben would be great, but I really need an eggbutt.

I wonder how that works on a significant other: "Honestly, honey, it's not *my* taste that's expensive - it's my horses'!"

Thanks again, all!
