    Yeah, Shellac was first and it's the one I use. I got one at a salon once after the other brands had come out and I found it much harder to remove than my Shellac. Now I only do my own or make sure...

    It's no too bad if you do it at home - I do, and I can't even figure out how to flat-iron my hair.

    This isn't exactly correct.

    Getting "gel nails" is fake nails. They put a shaping sticker under your nail and use a little pot of powder and a wet paint brush that "makes" nails. They're longer...

    Agree swedish oxer. Disagree on height. The high side isn't high enough to make that anywhere near 3'6". Looks to me like one side of the swedish is set at about 18" and the other side at 2'6". Even...

    For 6 year old blankets? Even for a Rambo, i wouldn't pay more than $100. Maybe a little more of they were very lightly used. I wouldn't pay half retail price for a 6 year old blanket.

    For a low level babysitter type the attitude bothers me more than the leg. I'd try to give him away with tack and blankets to the person free leasing him.

    You don't have to spend anywhere near $800 on blankets. I blanketed body-clipped horses in Wisconsin for years and never spent anything close to that to outfit one horse for the winter.
