    Things we tried 2008

    I thought it would be fun to review stuff that was new to us in 08. Open to all categories. Mine were:

    1) Omega Horseshine: 5 Stars. Great product. I'm already seeing results in his hooves and his mane/tail quality. I think his tail has doubled in thickness. And customer service is great. The bag tore and they sent me a whole bag free of charge.

    2) Bitless Bridle: 4 stars. Works good. My horse seems to know all of his regular cues with it on. He also seems to "walk-out" better and travel well. I got the Beta version which smells a little funny.

    3) IRobot Dirt Dog: 4 stars. Cleans good. Runs for about 1 1/2 hours on one charge. But you have to leave it plugged in all the time to "preserve" battery life. Mine's speaker went out. Which wasn't a huge problem because customer service replaced it free of charge with free shipping.

    4) Netflix: 4 stars. I love the Watch It Now. In fact I cut my cable and don't miss it at all. Ok customer service. I had a problem one time and they said "I needed to clear my cookies and restart." Well durr...anyone who has ever owned a computer before knows to do that before they call technical support.

    Anybody got anything new they want to rate?

    New to me in 08

    Craigslist - 5 stars!- I didn't even know it existed, apparently the rock I was living under didn't have internet. I have bought, sold and traded several things on CL this year and haven't been disappointed yet!!! (sold a car, bought a car, sold horses, traded tack, bought a lamp etc)

    2" Memory Foam Mattress topper- 2 stars - I guess you just can't save that dying mattress after all. I may have expected too much from it as far as saving my bed, but I was also disappointed in the topper itself. It wasn't king sized, in fact it was about 5" shy of fitting width wise. It scootches under the bedding...faithfully on fridays, I have to move the darn thing back to the top of the bed. (bought it at wal-mart $116) - 5 stars!!! I have yet to be disappointed with a recipie from there if you read the reviews and choose wisely. ( My butt hasn't gotten any smaller however my tummy has been happy)

    My Vet - 10 zillion stars! I know it's off the wall but he was new to us last year and he was fantastic with the horses and saved my heeler pup...KUDOS to them!!!

    I've sold 3 things on CL so far! It was new to me to! I'm selling all old things we don't use and using the money for a new TV. I'm finally getting a flat screen. I have an old "tube" tv with the rounded screen...poor old TV...he's so ancient. Craigslist: 5 stars!
