    If it doesn't need to be a *horse treat,* then why not just find something he likes such as: whole-wheat crackers, bread (even stale bread or toast would likely be soft enough), graham crackers or...

    Got the email, thanks. Glad to see her doing well and modeling her blanket in the snow. ;)

    Even if she's only 33, that's still a good age!

    She would be right around 39 now, if the original CL ad is correct. Pretty cool, huh? Glad to hear that she's still enjoying her retirement, snow and all! :D

    Thanks for the updates!

    Lowes, in the gardening section. Goatskin might be a little harder to find, but they definitely have deerskin. Unlined.

    I've reconditioned a few old saddles, even one that was as stiff as cardboard. It was so dry that I thought the flaps would crack. I was surprised, but it softened up nicely and took on a real...

    I have the Herm Sprenger flex stirrups and love them. I don't recall if it's the Bow Balance or offset or just Flex, but they are wonderful.

    Before I got them, I had knee pain and numbing of...

    The barn owner where I board installed a hoist with a pulley from the center of an overhead beam at the end of the barn aisle. So you can fill the muck bucket which is in a wheeled cart, and roll it...

    Yes, but why? I don't get the point. Why bother posting the ad? Just to troll? Seems like a poor choice of venue (classified ad page) to get the type of reaction that trolls tend to like.

    Ooops, I guess I wasn't being clear.
