    Default Really random question, but need help...

    So I bought a cooler last year at a show and I love it. Its very elegant, the problem being is that it has a magnet front closure. It works well as long as my horse doesnt try to bend down to eat something, and I dont want to leave him unsupervised with it on becasue it doesnt really stay on once the magnet is disconnected.

    I would like to find a leather front closure to add to the front to give it a nice look and to have it securly stay in place when he bends down to eat. Does anyone know where i can find these? I tried some local places even Michaels but no such luck.

    This is the cooler....

    If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be wonderful! Thanks!

    I would recommend a blanket pin for the front- sold at most tack shops.... like a GIANT baby pin.

    I am surprised walmart or micheal's doesnt have a buckle that you could sew in. Have you googled blanket repair in your area?

    If not, maybe sew on of these on the front? http://www.equestriancollections.com...sp?ic=WB00016R

    How about something like this:

    I've seen show coolers with these closures and I think they look really pretty.

    I was hoping I would find a one piece in which I would just need to sew the ends in. But this will work, I will just need to look for the leather straps. I plan on using it at shows so trying ot make it look as nice as possible!!!
