Delfina- LOL you sound a little like me.
4 saddles, three bridles, 5 saddle pads (plus one I am making) 3 sets of polo wraps (different colors) 20 hoof pics, 15 lead ropes (for horses, not alpacas or other animals) 7 halters… and One
horse. Now I’m starting on the blankets. Oiy!
Thanks for the info on the Amigo!
You too Faye!
It is really helpful to hear from people who own and use them on a regular basis and it makes me feel better about the Amigos.
Any idea if they tend to run slightly larger or smaller? Or are they spot on with sizes?
Wallaby- I was looking at the WB Oricans and a few others too.
And… we all know Lacey has a wardrobe that would put most of our own closets to shame.
Hey, a dignified lady (uh huh) has to have a diva wardrobe!
It’s also good to hear how those fit. Dig doesn’t have really big shoulders plus a wonky short back like an Arab (worse actually) so hearing what fits her is a good guide for me.
Yeah… Dig would be the horse with no back, shaped like an Arab, pony ears and who steps like a fox trotting alien horse. (But I soooo love him!)
Believe it or not, come late fall we get almost as much rain as you and the place turns into a mud bog, and I’m thinking it would be good to have two blankets to switch out like you mentioned.
The last time I blanketed horses a lot, sleazy/horse jammies hadn’t been around much and naked shoulder spots were just accepted as normal, but with Dig I don’t want to create spots that could cause problems the other 95% of the cold weather time when he is sans blanket.
AlexS- Got your PM, thank you bunches!
I’m working on tracking that person down. I didn’t think I could afford a Rambo, even though I really like them, so maybe this person will have what I need.
I tried the canvas blanket on Digby yesterday and made the adjustments he needed. Well, what I could anyway.
The size is right lengthwise, but it must have been made for a high withered horse with a more generous neck! Or a horse with a real back probably. I’m going to have to get the hole punch out and take up the chest a little bit.
At any rate, he was not impressed. Typical boy….rolled his eyes at me and said, “I don’t need no stinkin’ blanket! Hrmph… that’s for sissy horses.”
