    Just got a shipping notification! I'm so excited! I have several pieces of tack waiting patiently to try this magic dippity doo.

    Y'all have been so completely patient and encouraging as I learn just what the heck I'm doing! I'm so excited about a new logo and new labels that are in the works -- hopefully by the time some of y'all are ready to re-order, the packaging will be finalized!

    It is a big learning curve for someone that has not run a business before -- thank you to all of you for going along with me for the ride, and giving me such terrific guidance and advice!!

    Libby,
    "Dippity Doo" is a trademark name for a human hair product, styling gel from back in the dark ages when I braided manes. It is still in existence.

    By the way, it had wretched reviews on Make-up Alley website, so it is a poor fit for your awesome soap.
    I much prefer your current names and artisan style for packaging and labelling. We are interested in it BECAUSE it is honest and made with great care. "Higher Standards" is a terrific term to keep. We expect it to take time to create the premium, small batch, UNIQUE product. It is a commissioned work of art, not a mass produced, cheaper quality ingredients for the big chem firms, one.

    Thank you! I actually have used Dippity Doo myself, and I agree with you totally -- it did not stay on my list of mane braiding products for long! And even worse were the *imitations* of it -- those were super yicky! It did make me laugh, though!

    I love this! It is indeed a small batch product, all made by me in my kitchen! I thought about letting my DH help me with it, but I am such a control freak about it being the same every time, that I just couldn't do it. And he is even more of a perfectionist than I am!

    Thank you for the kind words!

    I finally got around to ordering mine yesterday! So excited! I ordered the citrus ginger... but if it's not too late, could I try a little bit of the Confidence scent, too (if you still have some)?

    Got mine a few days ago! LOVE that a sponge is included, because I am ALWAYS losing mine.

    We've had too much snow for me to get out to the barn to get my tack, but I did clean my boots:

    Which had, ah, never been cleaned before. Never. They look great now!

    I have the citrus ginger and the scent is VERY mild for those with sensitive noses. Just a hint of fragrance!

    I received my soap earlier this week. I ordered the citrus ginger and the scent is almost unnoticeable. It almost doesn't smell like anything, which is great.

    I have been very impressed with the soap so far! I have cleaned a few bridles with it as well as my saddle. It removes gunk easily without leaving any residue or film on the leather. It also doesn't leave any residue on my hands, which I LOVE. It leaves the leather with a really nice glow/shine that seems to last a few days even after using the tack. It has even managed to supple my ancient, on-its-last-legs flash noseband--something I have not been able to do with various soaps, conditioners, and oils.

    Very impressed with this product and I plan to continue using it. Thanks for making such nice soap.

    Libby- have you thought about getting a little sample size in The Horse Box? I just found out about it yesterday while browsing facebook at the doctor's office and subscribed for one today and thought your soap would be a perfect addition to the Box. http://www.ahorsebox.com/advertise.html

    Order placed for my favorite herb scent, Rosemary!

    My new County Perfection (aka Saddle Nirvana) will get it's first cleaning with it.

    So excited! Planning on letting my stuff get really dirty this weekend.

    Not that this matters, considering its a handmade item, but I always have enjoyed little "extra" surprises in packages. Whether its a sample, or a horse treat, or a little keychain, or SOMETHING, it always leaves a warm little touch.

    Just a thought, of what I get super duper excited about!

    I finally cleaned my saddle and girth and it's wonderful stuff! There was a small area of dried sweat/grime on the saddle flap and the soap took it right off with minimal scrubbing. And the leather looks great - I didn't oil it yet and it doesn't look like it needs it. Normally when I clean my tack, I oil it because it dries out.

    I love the packaging and the home made aspect of it. Personally, the sponge is too small for me, but I like that it's included. Very high quality product all around.

    Bentley -- I think what I need to do is to just figure shipping, and invoice you through paypal -- I think that would work!

    I should be able to do that for Austraila and Canada too!

    Remind me next week and we'll sort it out!

    Thank you!

    Dear Libby,

    I have been using your soap for a couple of weeks now and have zero complaints!!

    My tack is easily cleaned with minimal soap (my sample could last a long time, so I will use the excuse of trying other scents to place an order). It turns out clean, supple with just the right amount of shine. I am using the Citrus Ginger scent and love it.

    I generally take pretty good care of my tack and it is nice to use a product that does the job well. Clearly, all these pages of rave reviews are proof enough of the quality of the product!!

    Many thanks!!
