    I don't know why collies are less expensive but my dog's dam was the #1 smooth collie and won the smooths at Westminster the year he was born and he flew to his CH at 9 months and his GCH at 18...

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that $1000 is an outrageous price for a well-bred dog. I have one who was $1000 and worth every penny. I just mean that $1000 for a BYB who doesn't health test her...

    Alagirl and scierra- that is exactly right. Sockmonkey is trying to misunderstand me but what I am getting at is what you are referring to.

    A bad BYB doesn't care about the dogs they produce....
  4. Sorry, I should have qualified my answer. $1000...

    Sorry, I should have qualified my answer. $1000 is high for a collie in general unless there are extraordinary circumstances.

    If this breeder's stock had been extensively trialed, shown, titled,...

    Oh, sorry. No citation. I looked up where she got her collies. I am active in the breed so I'm pretty familiar with breeders and reputable practices. She got her dog from Carter Collies in NC. ...

    The violence and vitriol are really frightening. That being said, she didn't just buy a purebred puppy. She bought a crappy BYB-for-profit purebred puppy. So while I think people, even shelter...

    My Hastilow has metal, with joints on either side of the nose. It helps it fit better.

    Wicky uses her Wels cavesson over her bridle sometimes. I wonder if she'll chime in.
  9. I'm no lungeing expert but I adore my Wels...

    I'm no lungeing expert but I adore my Wels cavesson that I got from Hastilow. Soft, relatively lightweight, very stable, excellent leather. Pricey, but you get what you pay for.

    FWIW, I posted this in another thread- I wear a SmartWool liner bra under my Enell and it makes it very soft and cozy as well as wicks away sweat really well. And I only pay $35 for my Enells because...

    When I switched my cat from dry food (which she loved) to a high quality canned food like EVO 95% Chicken, she dropped several pounds and her recurring cystitis disappeared.

    Snowshoes in new snow that deep will "posthole" and sink, leaving you stuck and trapped. Tomorrow will be better. Good luck.

    The old ski boot advice is go with a THINNER sock, not a thicker one that takes up all the room in your boot. You need to heat up the air around your foot and the boot. That being said, there is...

    I got my first down barn jacket, from LL Bean many, many years ago on clearance and it has steadfastly refused to die. I loved it so much I bought another to keep for home. Neither is all that...

    I work in the outdoor industry and we say that "cotton kills" because if you sweat into it, the sweat doesn't evaporate, it just sits there and gets cold.

    Ditch the sweatshirt. Bottoms should be...

    Petrie 3000s. $399 at Dressage Extensions. No zipper but I had ones put in by a cobbler. Supportive but not ultra stiff.

    My guy has trouble with picking up his back feet when his sacrum is having trouble, even if he is sound. He's better after massage or chiro.

    Raincityrider, do you know which flick brush you have? I couldn't find any that specifically mentioned cactus fiber.

    I've had good experiences with VPI (Now Nationwide) and Pet's Best. I don't buy routine coverage, just major medical. It has been worthwhile for both my dogs.

    Can someone please recommend their favorite Haas dandy brush or stiff brush? I am having trouble figuring out which model would be best. I do like a natural bristle dandy brush.
