  1. Help finding a fitted pad for an 18" 3A Devoucoux

    Other than Beval (18-2.5 size I need would be back-ordered), does anyone know of an "off the rack" fleece pad that would work with an 18" 3A Devoucoux?

    Would like to stay <$100. Thanks everyone!...

    He is particularly good minded, and he's also as precious as a 17.3h horse can be considered.

    I've done...

    Do bell boots like this exist?

    So the short coupled darling of a TB I have is kind of a dork and has great success when it comes to stepping on himself. As such, he lives in bell boots to spare his heels and shoes. He's currently...
