This vid has been circulating on that dastardly Facebook but it's worthy of sharing here.

The horse is spectacular and this gal sticks like a burr to him.

  Outback Oilskin Duster and Hood
Posted by: PaintGal - 01-15-2017, 12:48 AM - Forum: General Information - Replies (6)

I've loved the look of the duster for ages! I finally decided to get one and went ahead and ordered the hood with to go with it. Here is the duster:

[Image: 2042-BLK-LG_1-B.jpg?fv=7417CDDAB450791AC...8D16-22979]

and here is the hood:

[Image: 2003-BLK-LG_1-B.jpg?fv=1BABE3A7A28CD6D7B...B6BD-31681]

Now, one would think that the hood and duster would come so they snap together but NOOOO. They send additional snaps that are supposed to be added. The storm cape attaches with snaps but the hood doesn't line up with those snaps and you can't use both on the same snaps.

The hood is supposed to be big enough to fit a helmet and it does fit mine but the only way to attach the hood to the duster so it does is to put the snaps on the outside edge of the collar.

Does anyone here have one or know someone who does? I'd love to know where the snaps were added.

On a side note... this duster is AWESOME! It's heavy but unless you want to get wet, you aren't going to when wearing this thing. I just wish the duster had the snaps already in place so the hood can attach. I cringe at the thought of poking holes in it!

  Big Lick is DEAD!!!
Posted by: PaintGal - 01-14-2017, 03:03 PM - Forum: General Information - Replies (2)

Finally, the horrible abuse inflicted by the Big Lick industry on innocent horses is over or at least there is a law in placing banning the soring, chains and pads used to make these innocent horses contort their body for the exaggerated big lick gaits.

It will be phased in supposedly so the horses can be taken off those awful pads gradually but supposedly by Jan. 2018, the massive pads will be history. This law applies only to TWH & Racking Horses because while other breeds like Saddlebreds use some pads but not the torture devices use by the big lick industry.

Anyhoo... for those that would like to read the law that was just passed, here is the link:

  Worst Nightmare...
Posted by: PaintGal - 01-07-2017, 07:29 PM - Forum: Saddle Shop Corral - Replies (5)

As horse owners, our worst nightmare is probably a barn fire and a friend just lost his barn and 5 horses to fire last night. Some may remember David Davis whom I took lessons from, rode in his drill team and where Beth Ann and I met. His 150 y/o barn burned early this morning and they were only able to get 3 head out. He lost his trick stallion, Crusader, a police horse that had just arrived for training yesterday, 2 client mares (one had been sold and was to picked up today) and a pony. Fortunately, there weren't more horses in the barn as usual.

He lost all of his winter square bales, grain, tack, office with records, awards, pictures, etc. His arena was saved and he has a another barn that is not ideal but can be used for a few horses. He said they had debated bringing in more horses because of the single digit temps but decided they were okay outside..thank heavens.

Word spread quickly and it wasn't long after I got there that people showed up with hay, halters, leads, other tack and supplies. I helped unload a trailer and truck of hay, and people dropped off grain, made promises for more hay and grain and there is a "gift card" fund set up at a couple of places so he can get what he needs. All of that happened within a couple of hours! He kept saying he didn't want to be greedy and maybe he shouldn't accept all of the help coming in. I told him that's what horse people do for other horse people when there is a need.

Here are a couple of pics. The first of the flames, I did not take. The 2nd one, I did.

And Crusader as a yearling. He grew into a beautiful talented stallion.

If you can spare a prayer or two, I know he'd appreciate them.

WHY Are We Stopping By These Woods On A Snowy Evening??!?
(with apologies to Robert Frost)

What woods these are I do not know.
We're nowhere near the village though.
What's the deal with stopping here
To watch these woods fill up with snow?

Certainly I think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between those woods and hey, a lake
And you know, it's getting dark out here.

I give my harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake;
Let's get back to the stable's heat
And grainy mash and alfalfa flake.

The snow is soft beneath my feet,
But we've got dinnertime to meet,
And miles to go before I eat,
And miles to go before I eat.
