    Default 6" D-ring rubber or happy mouth?

    Wondering if anyone can tell me where I can find this...Dover is backordered for 3 weeks and can't seem to find this size/style anywhere else. Thanks

    Call the Tackeria in Wellington, FL. It may cost you a bit more, but they usually have large sizes. Good luck

    I was told that happy mouth bits were pulled off the shelfs today. Something about the wire on the inside being bad. Not sure of the exact nature of the problem or how long it will take to remedy.

    www.drafttack.com has rubber snaffles, but not happy mouth.

    they have a really good selection. I have to shop there for my non-draft with a 6.25" mouth. I know the pain of searching...

    Thanks so much for all the info - drafttack.com looks like just the ticket

    Laurierace, I hadn't heard that. Can you please post an update if you get any more info? Dover phone rep didn't mention anything about that, but wondering if that's why they were "backordered" there?

    Just wanted to update...got this email from Dover this morning re: a different happy mouth bit a ordered last week:

    "We wanted to inform you that there has been a delay with one or more items
    on your order 5036758, placed on 06/06/09. Please accept our apologies for this
    delay and understand that we are working hard to remedy this problem."

    I'm now wondering if a happy mouth that arrived last week (yes, lots of happy mouths in my barn...) is okay or is being recalled? Will call Dover to ask about this and update again if this is the case...Who'da thunk it?

    They just took them off the shelves yesterday. Not sure if a recall is to follow, I will see the manager tomorrow and ask him.
