    flexion, your saddle looks great - I'll be curious how the martingale does once you use it since it will be exposed to a lot more sweat and horse contact (so will it rub off? hope you don't ride a...

    I did not use anything special after the dye, but now I'll have to go look those products up.:) I just conditioned mine a couple of days later with the usual stuff (Effax or Passier Lederbalm).

    I also have the tall Muck Brit Colt boots and like them, but I believe they were discontinued by Muck (for reasons I do not understand). You can still find them in stock at some places. I had the...

    I'm taking this to mean that you are trying to rule out the SmartPak product as the source of the horse's issue? Maybe I'm reading that wrong.

    I have used the SmartDigest Ultra for a couple of...

    Any time I have provided my own hay while boarding (speaking as a boarder, not BO/BM), there has been no discount. I didn't expect one, although it would be nice, of course. I look at it as my choice...

    Yes, saddle placement further back is not just a County thing or something your fitter came up with. I've worked with several fitters from different brands, not just County, and none have had me put...

    Horse with prior tendon injuries (he's an overachiever, so he bowed both front tendons at once) and some history of heel and coffin joint pain wore wedge pads with equi-pak underneath while in...

    With all the talk for awhile about the USHJA trainer certification program (which is still happening, but seems the talk has died down now that it isn't "new" anymore), I have wondered if any of the...

    Initially I was inclined to say gray for sure. But then I looked at rustic red at Sherwin Williams and it is a darker, more browny toned red than a Christmas red, so I think the green might look...

    Just going to chime in defense of shared driveways. That might not be the kiss of death. You could call what I have a "shared" driveway in that a number of us share a private road, and we are at the...

    I've used wedge shoes and wedge pads on different horses for different reasons, and would again, if there was a need. Sometimes it was a short term thing, sometimes long term, and always at the...

    My experience with leather dye goes as far as the one saddle that I posted here. So I'm not an expert by any means and won't dispense advice on what anyone else should or should not do. The reading...

    I wasn't sure if this meant that the grade changed that much in between the sites for the two buildings (arena and barn) or over the area where those buildings are to be placed? If the latter, which...

    I believe that you are correct, but don't want to lead anyone down the wrong path...so second GoForAGallop's suggestion of googling about deglazing leather. I think it is good to seek out information...

    Yes. I did the medium brown on most of mine (your link shows the dark brown) and then I added a little dark brown to the medium to do the seat.

    The price on the used Innovations has really come down now that it is no longer the "new" model for County. I personally am not a fan of the County standard leather and wouldn't look at one that is...

    Not that one (Hydrophane Darkening Oil) but did try the one from another brand (Walsh? I can't remember and it is in the barn right now -- brown bottle). It did help on a Prestige that I had that was...

    If the horse is younger than 17, the HYPP status should be on the papers (if they are AQHA registered), and the seller should know this. Started with 1998 foals. I am looking at one right now that...

    When I put "propane heater" and "barn fire" into google, anything I read only reaffirmed my thinking that it would not be safe. I noticed that some of the fires that resulted were from the methane...

    My premium membership was supposed to auto renew, but I see it didn't, so I can't post the pics here. I'll have to put them on Photobucket and do a link. But the dye that I used was same as OP -...

    We have a single door fridge on top with bottom freezer drawer. I much prefer this style to any others I have had - whether a French door front or top freezer type. The one advantage I can see of...

    If you weren't clear across the country from me, I'd be asking you to point me in this horse's direction.;) He sounds just like what I've been looking for. But I have no interest in showing anymore...

    I thought I would come back to report that I DID dye the Amerigo and it looks like I took 10 years off its age! Well, maybe not that much, but it does make it look a lot more "current" and I much...
