  1. Thanks, GoForAGallop--I think another opinion is...

    Thanks, GoForAGallop--I think another opinion is in order before I go to any extremes! I will look into that to see what kind of photos I will need to take, etc. And you are certainly right in that...
  2. Thanks for confirming my suspicion about voiding...

    Thanks for confirming my suspicion about voiding the warranty. I knew County's didn't have an adjustable tree but thought she was maybe getting at something else. Hmm...

    The "unbiased" opinion I...
  3. Thanks for the advice so far! My Thoroughbred is...

    Thanks for the advice so far! My Thoroughbred is a 2000 model so I do wonder how his back will change as he continues to age.

    I forgot to add that that this saddle does have a skid row panel. It...
  4. County Saddles and Flat Backs (Bonus, with High Withers too!)

    I got my Thoroughbred a custom County Connection in the summer of 2012. I went with County mainly because there was a rep in my area and I knew of no other fitters that routinely came to my area. So,...
  5. Thanks, guys! Quietann, you are right in that BO...

    Thanks, guys! Quietann, you are right in that BO is very much a "worrier". But she always has the horse's best interests in mind. It just means that she thinks about everything--like being worried if...

    LDavis, was there a reason to wrap the knee prior to the standing wrap on the bottom of the leg? I ask because I had heard to do the standing wrap on the lower leg first so that the knee wrap...

    There aren't many barns in my area but they're all like this. This place is at least $75/month more than other barns near me at $450/mo. The last barn I was at, had poor pastures, arenas that were...

    I agree with using a spider wrap if you can find or make one. Another option, which may or may not work in your case, but was recommended by my vet when I had to wrap my horse's knee, is to do a...
  9. Well, there is good news. I was frantic when my...

    Well, there is good news. I was frantic when my BO texted me saying that I needed to pay more and further texts for clarification did not help...and then I didn't hear back from her. But I spoke with...
  10. When Full Care Board Doesn't Supply Enough Hay

    What do you do when your barn doesn't supply enough hay? Do you pay extra to get additional hay from the barn? Do you buy your own hay? And if so, where do you buy it (feed store, directly from...
  11. Thanks, guys! I managed to score a discontinued...

    Thanks, guys! I managed to score a discontinued Pessoa heavy weight stable blanket but I will likely need to get a medium weight one too so fingers crossed the Centaur will fit! I don't know why...
  12. Thanks, guys! Simike, would you say that they...

    Thanks, guys! Simike, would you say that they have a decent drop? Or is that the reason they tend to be better for narrower horses in your opinion? And if it were your horse, would you go for the 78"...
  13. I loved Turtleneck's fly sheet...

    I loved Turtleneck's fly sheet. It's durable and comes with a year warranty (plus spare parts). It fits pretty true to size but you may want to do a search on here for more detailed fitting info. I...
  14. Centaur Blanket Sizing - Do They Run Small / Large?

    My horse is in need of some new clothes this year and I was wondering how Centaur's sizing is? Do they run small? Large? I'm specifically looking at one of their stable blankets with shoulder...
  15. Thanks, guys! I've been swamped here the past few...

    Thanks, guys! I've been swamped here the past few days so I haven't had time to do much in terms of contacting anyone but I appreciate your continued help!
  16. From what I can tell, the people that bred my...

    From what I can tell, the people that bred my horse don't have a large operation so fingers crossed that will be a good thing in terms of getting in touch with them! However, it does mean that I've...
  17. Thank you!

    Thank you!
  18. Thank you Simike and ladyj79! I tried searching...

    Thank you Simike and ladyj79! I tried searching for info on his sire but once again did not have much luck. That name history is fascinating--thank you for sharing it. I tried making an account on...
  19. Getting in Contact with my OTTB's Breeders (Indiana)?

    I've owned Lonely Reality, a 2000 model by Tricon and out of Lonely at the Top, since '06. He was bred and Indiana and based off of my research, he was bred by Alan Walsh & Bob Griffith. Owned by...
  20. Thanks for the helpful replies! I called and talk...

    Thanks for the helpful replies! I called and talk to two different reps and am not impressed with their customer service at all. :no:

    They were not helpful in terms of describing the different...
  21. I had a question about Schneide'rs turnouts too,...

    I had a question about Schneide'rs turnouts too, if you don't mind me adding to your thread, Samigator. I ordered the StormShield Nordlund Combo turnout for my Thoroughbred and the fit was way off....
  22. It was my out of state vet that said to poultice...

    It was my out of state vet that said to poultice it. The swelling was down a lot today, temperature was normal. His leg was still a bit swollen and warm but it was much improved. I walked him, cold...
  23. My horse wasn't terribly reactive to me handling...

    My horse wasn't terribly reactive to me handling his leg. He was moving fine, etc. I heard from my vet and he just said to poultice it if it appeared to be a reaction from sweating his leg. I will be...
  24. I knew I was forgetting something--I...

    I knew I was forgetting something--I unfortunately did not take his temp this evening. Other than the swollen leg he was acting perfectly normal. I will see if my BO can check his temp in the morning...
  25. Horse Reacting to Furacin Sweat? Cellulitis?

    I've been sweating my horse's leg for the past couple of weeks per my vet's recommendations (horse strained his LH suspensory) and when I was at the barn today, I saw that his leg was warm and...
