    Default friend lost all her stuff in flood!! HELP!!

    Looking for some stuff for my friend who lost everything in the flood in cedar rapids Iowa, her family thought only the basement would flood so they moved everything to the first floor, the water ruined everything on the first floor, the water got clear to the second story!! She is in the kirkwood community college horse science program and is in need of some of her horse related supplies for this coming semester, if anyone has anything extra laying around, she is in need of
    polo wraps
    standing wraps
    cotton wraps
    track bandages
    breeches sz 30-32
    half chaps m or l
    paddock boots sz 10
    horse cooler
    rope halter
    dressage whip
    gloves
    (this is the stuff she will need right away for class!!)
    Thanks Jenny

    I have a pair of black polo wraps, and I can send a regular nylon halter as well.

    I wish this would have been posted a month ago. I had so much junk I just threw out after I had a major tack trunk and locker clean out. I feel so bad. I gave this stuff away and threw out a majority of this unused stuff.

    I have at least 1 pair of breeches maybe more. Please let me know where to send.

    I certainly have no bows and some shipping wraps I can send... does the school have a specific size they prefer them to have? I have so many in every size imaginable that if she wants a specific size let me know. YOu can PM me that and an address to send them to and I'll get them out monday.

    I've got a pair of Dehner paddock boots that are a little big for me- I am a 9 1/2 - they are used- but still in great shape. If you want to PM me the address I can send them along- I also might have a used pair of breeches- would that weird her out?

    I've got a friend's old pair of 1/2 chaps (M-L) that I'll happily send if you'll PM the address - does she need bits or stuff like that? I'll throw in polo wraps and bandages too. Hope things get better soon. Friend is lucky to have a friend like you!

    Please update with what you have received so far as perhaps we can have Round 2 if she is still needing items.

    I have some rope halters a friend gave me when she got out of horses. They don't have lead ropes though. She gave me some breeches too, but am not sure of the size. Also have some really, really cheap paddock boots that might work for her (ebay buy gone wrong).

    I am so disappointed that this flood victim has not received any of the things she was promised. Kudos to Cloverbug for sending breeches.

    Let's help out everyone and get this girl what she needs before her classes start.


    I have a pair of New in Bag riding gloves by RJ Classics size small/medium. Will those fit?
    they are leather / crocheted.
    Please email with an address to mail the gloves. My PM message box is about full. brownie61@aol.com


    I will also check my barn for some other things-- problem is, we do pretty much just ponies..so my stuff is for the most part pony sized.
