    Ah hah... so that means the frilly jobs probably are legal--that's an integrated stand up collar. I was looking at the magnet closure ones, too and wondering, so that is useful information. Thank...

    I feed an oats, alfalfa pellets and rice bran mix with an added vitamin supplement, and hay. Horses all look great on it, hooves and coats are good, bright eyes and energy.

    I was looking through thru the Goode Rider site and noticed they have a couple of show shirts with frilly fronts and high collars that are designed to be worn without a stock tie. Can one really get...

    I have one gelding who colics at the merest sniff of it. The rest of the boys are fine on it, though no one gets it anymore as the risk of having it on the premises is too great.
