    Harry Potter- Stallion

    Is anyone using him in their breeding program?

    I've only seen a few offspring and they were all outstanding in the hunter ring.

    I've washed a few different brands - all came out alright. I turn them inside out - use detergent for delicate fabrics - wash on delicate cycle - hang dry right side out.

    Sizing is quite generous

    I also find the sizing is quite generous -I normally buy warmblood size back boots, but in the Tekna's he wears just a 'regular' horse size.
