    I was able to just email my serial number to BC on a used one I had, and they could tell me the specs including age of the saddle. So I'd try that.

    Try emailing again. I did find some warranty info around the web that made it sound like it might only be a year, but worth asking. Bogs at least responded to me quickly when I had an issue with...

    I can hear fine with my Lifeproof, others hear me fine when talking on the phone, and have no issues with the touchscreen. They seem to improve the designs all the time, so the newer cases are better...

    Lifeproof for me. I never have to remove the case to charge, hook to my car sound system, or use headphones (they provide an adapter to fit the headphone jack without removing the case). Sound...

    My front zips were very tight, so much so that I needed assistance to zip them the first couple wears. But they stretched out and fit perfectly after just a few rides. Try yours with breeches and the...

    As long as it is stored properly, I have no problem feeding year (or two year!) old hay. IIRC, the nutritional value doesn't change that much.

    Having spent $$$ to put in a nice outdoor arena on our property, I'm certain it will not add that same $$$ to the value of our place. I knew going in that it wasn't a sound investment in that way,...

    I don't think that could be done for $7 (or whatever the fee is per horse per show).

    Have you tried contacting the Muck Boot company? I had a similar issue with Bogs that cracked within the first winter, and Bogs was wonderful about replacing them. I seem to recall that Muck had a...

    The one you posted doesn't look that heavy duty to me. You might check with some makers of tack trunks to see if you can buy replacement supports from them. I don't know this place at all, but if you...

    Honestly, I wish there were testers at all shows. Even the playing field. Been years since I showed, but when I did, we'd have testers at only a very few shows, and some years, I'd not see them at...

    If I were either of the two parties, I would be certain to carry the appropriate insurance. I look at the situation and think, who could get sued? Both. Whether they would be held liable, there are...

    I've had both, and they both do an excellent job. I prefer the Double K as they are so quiet, since the actual motor is away from the horse, and stay cooler. Plus you can use all those A5 blades you...

    The $75 price was a special they were running at Wedgewood. Shocked me to find that a compounding pharmacy did sales.

    I thought I remember reading that vets weren't allowed to stock compounded...

    Mine was a high suspensory in front, so "better" prognosis than hind, as I recall. I took a long time with the rehab and would say it was close to a year from injury to a return to full work. I...

    Not sure there is much more you can do until the farrier does his magic. But I might be inclined to buy a pair of crease nail pullers and leave them accessible to the BM. Having the right tools and...

    I'm with the others, thinking that sealing the mice out would result in too little air flow for hay, and would not be good. Maybe if you still had air vents up high, perhaps with a fan, that might...

    $100k for a horse that is blind in one eye AND lame, is how I read it. Crazy story.

    1/8" isn't much so I'd go up to the 5-1/8". Better a little big than too small. They seemed pretty true to measure, IIRC. Been a while since I've had one!

    Stifles, I have been told by my super lameness guy, can take as much as three weeks to see results. So I would reserve judgement for awhile.

    Just a damp sponge, excess water squeezed out. If I'm rubbing the sponge on the soap and it leaves a puddle on top, that's too wet.
    Sometimes all I do is give my saddle a wipe off with a damp cloth,...

    I also use Effax Leder Combi and haven't had an issue with discoloration. I don't use it often on my County, and not in excess, just a quick wipe down. My County rep recommended Passier Leder Balm...

    Hmmm...the Bucas blankets I have are actually pretty generous in the shoulders, which is contrary to what others are posting. I have two of the Power blankets, the silver ones, in size 81, and those...

    I've used both Fine Used Saddles (20% then) and I Sell Tack (18% then). I would look at the typical saddle types and brands at both as I feel they each are better at marketing certain ones -- a wool...

    I won't buy from the field. Maybe I'm over cautious, but I prefer to pay a little more and buy it after it has been stored in their barn for a few weeks. If we are loading by hand, any extra heavy...
