    You want proof that she spent money feeding and caring for your horse?

    Why do you think you shouldn't be paying board? I'm confused.

    The Furminator looks like a bunch of blades to me. Is it pulling out the undercoat hairs or cutting them?

    I think that "hitch" in his back will go away with time, slow correct work, turn out and body work. He just looks tight all over.

    And I get some vibes about his neck that I don't understand. ...

    No, the Stubben Tristans and Thornhills (as well as almost every other soft, modern saddle out there) ride differently.

  14. Question for you Canadians (and people importing stuff to the US)

    More or less, what percentage will I pay in US customs to buy something from a Canadian Ebayer?

    let's assume we do this all by the book.

    Then you people need to develop a Code Phrase for when TS stuff goes on sale.

    How about "The falcon has landed"? And then give link.

    Yeah, I remember seeing that, too. But man, you couldn't bend that saddle if you tried. To me, it felt as stiff as the injection-molded plastic tree-ed saddles I have ridden in.

    I'm not sure...

    I like chicharrones. Ordinarily, I don't confess that. But show me a genuine carneceria and/or an actual pig opportunity and I'll drop my pride. They are the bacon of skin, if done right.
