    No no no no no. I've only seen one Tough 1 blanket actually be waterproof when it was brand new and that was the 420d one (lasted, oh, 12 hours?). You couldn't pay me to use one. Stateline has...

    I was going to recommend the Smartpak boots as well. I also am a size 11, wide foot, and these run probably a size big and are plenty wide. I can fit two pairs of thick socks and toe warmers in...

    My favorite cheap blankets are Saxons, although their "heavy" is only 250g IIRC and they don't offer a lot of belly coverage. Shires is also a great brand that has some less expensive models.

    I found out last winter that I had enough blankets to easily outfit 4 horses for any weather. With layers and spares. Of course the rational response was to buy 3 more.

    You guys look like a really nice match IMO. If you'd like to see someone who's a height mismatch for a pony, here's me bareback on the cowpony I ride. He actually takes up my leg fairly well. He's...

    Considering it's Wyoming, there's a good chance it wasn't photoshopped. I've taken a few out here in South Dakota that look that dramatic and since I'm a technological moron I can assure you they're...

    I have another one who changed shape as he matured--sprouted up an entire inch between 7 and 8. When I moved him out to the ranch 18 months ago (age 10) his saddle fit with a regular pad and a thin...

    Are her teeth in good condition? How thick are the bits you've tried? My horse doesn't care for a fat bit, and he can also be fussy about the noseband. I ride him in a thin french link d-ring and...

    My garden had quite a good year and I'm currently up to my ears in winter squashes, so I've been feasting on soups. I get so excited for soup season it's ridiculous. I've made one batch of squash...
